                                   EXECUTIVE ORDER D—449—58

                                   Relating to Exemptions under
                              Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code

                          The Braun Corporation (d.b.a. BraunAbility)
                                    Fuel Tank Assembly

Pursuant to the authority vested in the California Air Resources Board (CARB) by Vehicle
Code (VC) Section 27156; and

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Health and Safety Code Sections
39515 and 39516 and Executive Order G—14—012;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Fuel Tank Assembly,
manufactured by The Braun Corporation (Braun) of 631 West 11th Street, Winamac, Indiana
46996, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle pollution
control system, and therefore, the Fuel Tank Assembly, is exempt from the prohibitions in VC
Section 27156 for installation on 2017 and 2018 model—year 3.6 liter Chrysler Pacifica with the
following LEV2 exhaust test group and LEV2 and LEV3 evaporative families:

Test group: HCRXTO3.65P1, JCRXTO3.65P4
Evaporative family: HCRXRO140RKO, HCRXRO140RPO, JCRXRO140RPO

The assembly is used in the rear entry conversion and includes a replacement fuel tank
installed forward of the original location.

This Executive Order is based on testing and engineering evaluation of the assembly for
impact on emissions. If evidence provides CARB with reasons to suspect that The Braun
Corporation‘s Fuel Tank Assembly will affect other emissions, such as canister bleed
emissions, The Braun Corporation will be required to perform additional test(s) in the future to
show that such emissions are not affected.

Exemption of the 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 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 Fuel Tank Assembly, as exempt by
CARB, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicle‘s pollution control system shall
invalidate this Executive Order.


                                                FoA


Marketing of the 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 CARB.

In addition to the foregoing, CARB 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.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the 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 California 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 CARB OF
CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING ANTI POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY
ALLEGED BENEFITS OF BRAUN‘S FUEL TANK ASSEMBLY.

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this Executive
Order. The Executive Order 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 grounds
                                      that    for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this day of September 2017.
