                                  Relating to Exemptions under
                               Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code

                                    The Braun Corporation
                               Replacement Fuel Tank Assembly

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board (ARB) by Section 27156 of the
Vehicle Code; and

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Sections 39515 and 39516 of the Health
and Safety Code and Executive Order G—02—003;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the replacement fuel tank
assembly, part number E51907A05, manufactured by The Braun Corporation (631 West
11‘ Street, P. 0. Box 310, Winamac, Indiana 46996) has been found not to reduce the
effectiveness of the applicable vehicle pollution control system, and therefore, the
replacement fuel tank assembly is exempt from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the
Vehicle Code for installation on 2005 model—year DaimlerChrysler 3.3 and 3.8 liter gasoline
minivans, originally equipped with a 20—gallon plastic fuel tank and "Fold—In—Floor" seats.

This exemption is based on fuel tank temperature, On—Board Refueling Vapor Recovery
emissions, and On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) System testing. Test results showed that
Braun‘s replacement fuel tank assembly does not have any adverse effect on the vehicle‘s
evaporative or refueling emissions or its OBD 11 System.

Exemption of the replacement fuel tank assembly shall not be construed as an exemption to
sell, offer for sale, or advertise any component of the assembly as individual devices.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any device advertised, offered for sale, sold with, or
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.

In addition to the foregoing, the ARB reserves the right in the future to review this Executive
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.


                                               «2.


This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the
replacement fuel tank assembly may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by
the vehicle manufacturer.

No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by the Air Resources Board," may be made with
respect to the action taken herein in any advertising or other oral or written communication.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION,
ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE
AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING
ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF THE—BRAUN
CORPORATION‘S REPLACEMENT FUEL TANK ASSEMBLY.

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this Executive
Order. The Executive Ordér may be revoked only after a ten—day written notice of intention
to revoke the Executive Order, in which period the holder of the Executive Order may
request in writing a hearing to contest the proposed revocation. If a hearing is requested, it
shall be held within ten days of receipt of the request and the Executive Order may not be
revoked until a determination is made after a hearing that grounds for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this   b(H         day of January 2005.
