                                Replacement Fuel Tank Systems

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
Healith and Safety Code and Executive Order G—02—003;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That installation of replacement fuel tank systems,
manufactured by Liberty Motor Company, Inc. (Liberty) of 2390 S. Service Road West,
Oakville, Ontario, Canada L6L 5M9, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the
applicable vehicle pollution control system, and therefore, the replacement fuel tank systems
are exempt from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for use on the following
vehicles:                                                                                 >

This exemption is based on the results of the 2—day diurnal evaporative emission test, fuel
hose permeability test, On—Board Refueling Vapor Recovery emission test, and the On—
Board Diagnostic II (OBD I1) System test. Test results showed that the replacement fuel
tank systems do not adversely affect the vehicle‘s evaporative or refueling emissions or its
OBD II System. Similar results are expected when the replacement fuel tank systems are
used on any of the vehicles included in this exemption.

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

This Executive Order shalil 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 replacerÔ¨Āent fuel tank
systems 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 systems,
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 systems 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.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the
replacement fuel tank systems 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 LIBERTY MOTOR

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 that grounds for revocation exist.
