                                   EXECUTIVE ORDER D—461—1
                            Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                         of the Vehicle Code

                        INDEPENDENT MOBILITY SYSTEMS, INC.
                    "FUEL SYSTEM, LWB 10" HDPE", PART NO. N—24004
                       20—GALLON HIGH DENSITY POLYETHYLENE
                         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—45—9;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That installation of the "FUEL SYSTEM, LWB 10"
HDPE" replacement fuel tank assembly, part no. N—24004, manufactured by Independent Mobility
Systems, Inc. (IMS) of 4100 W. Piedras Street, Farmington, New Mexico 87401, 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 of Section 27156 of the California
Vehicle Code for installation on 1999 model—year 3.0/3.3/3.8 liter Chrysler Corporation minivans,
originally equipped with 20—gallon high density polyethylene fuel tanks.

This exemption is based on fuel tank temperature profile and on—board diagnostic system testing
conducted by IMS on a 1998 model—year 3.8 liter Chrysler Towa & Country minivan.

Through engineering evaluation of the fuel tank temperature data, it was concluded that IMS‘s
replacement fuel tank assembly will not adversely affect the evaporative emissions of the Chrysler
minivans listed above. In addition, IMS showed that the replacement fuel tank assembly does not
affect the operation of the vehicle‘s on—board diagnostic leak detection system. The same results
are expected when the replacement fuel tank assembly is installed on the 1999 model—year
minivans.

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

PART NO. N—24004
20—GALLON HDPE REPLACEMENT
FUEL TANK ASSEMBLY


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

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the replacement fuel tank assembly, as
exempted by the ARB, which may adversely affect the performance of a 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 that listed in this Executive Order shall be
prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the ARB.

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 ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING
ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF INDEPENDENT
MOBILITY SYSTEMS, INC.‘S "FUEL SYSTEM, LWB 10" HDPE" REPLACEMENT 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
after the hearing that grounds for revocation exist.

Executed at E1 Monte, California, this      1/ 77 day of August 1998.
