installed on a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the replacement fuel tank
assembly do not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of the
vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the replacement fuel tank assembly, as
exempt by the ARB, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicle‘s pollution control
system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of the replacement fuel tank assembly using an identification other than that shown in
this Executive Order or for an application other than those listed in this Executive Order shall be
prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the ARB.

Order and the exemption provided herein to assure that the exempted add—on or modified part
continues to meet the standards and procedures of Title 13, California Code of Regulations,
Section 2222 et seq.
