                                                       EVALUATION SUMMARY

 Manufacturer Name: FuelTool, LLC

 Name of Dev10e FuelTool

        FuelTool, LLC (FuelTool) of 175 Rock Road, Glen Rock, New Jersey 07452 has
 requested exemption of its FuelTool device from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the
  California Vehicle Code. The device is designed for 2013 and older model—year gasoline
~ vehicles. The vehicles are certified to LEV II ultra—low—emission vehicle (LEV I1 ULEV) exhaust
 emission standards, LEV II evaporative emission standards, and On—Board Refueling‘Vapor
 Recovery (ORVR) emission standard. They arealso subject to the On—Board Diagnostic II
 (OBD II) system reqwrements

         Grant exemption to FuelTool as requested and ilssue Executive Order D—703. The
 exemption applies to 2013 and older model—year gasoline vehicles certified to LEV II ULEV or
 less stringent exhaust emission standards. The exemption excludes 2010 through 2013 model—
 year Honda Insight certified to LEV I1 ULEV exhaust emission standards and California zero—fuel
 evaporative emission standards. The.exemption excludes all vehicles certified to California
 zero—fuel evaporative (ZFE) emission standards.

 Device Description:                                                    O
         The FuelTool device is a fuel dispensing system that transfers fuel from the host vehicle
 fuel tank to another on— oroff—road recipient vehicle/equipment tank. According to FuelTool, its
 design reduces evaporative emissions and fuel spillage from portable gas containers more
 commonly used to fuel such recipient vehicle/equipment. The FuelTool device is permanently
 mounted ontothe host vehicle. It consists of a refueling nozzle, coiled refueling line, shear
 valve (stops fuel flow in an accident), fuel transfer line, fuel line quick connect fittings, and a
  housing assembly. The quick connect fittings allow installation of the fuel transfer line between >
  the host tank and the engine. The fuel transfer line is connected to the refueling nozzle. When
  the host vehicle is idling, the fuel pump provides surplus supply of fuel from the tank to the
  refueling nozzle through the teed transfer line. Fueling is allowed via a manual regulator knob
  (on—off switch) in the assembly and is started with a push of a button on the nozzle. On
  average, fuel is transferred at a rate of two gallons per minute. The assembly is mounted in the
— vehicle truck bed or to the side of the vehicle. No modification to the vehicle‘s exhaust or
  evaporative emission control systems is made.

 Discussion/Basis for the Recommendation:
        This exemption is based on 3—day diurnal evaporatlve emission testing and OBD II ~
~ system check conducted on a 2008 model—year 5.3 liter Chevrolet Silverado pick—up truck (2008
 5.3 liter Sierra truck; 8GMXT05.3380/8GMXRO223840; 32,903 miles) withthe FuelTool device.              .
 The test results arepresented below:                                                                       ]

                                                                                  (Page 2 of 2)

Test results showed that the deteriorated emissions of the modified vehicle do not exceed the
applicable standard. OBD II system check during the emission test showed no diagnostic
trouble codes. Based on the above, the FuelTool device is not expected to have any adverse
impact on the emissions or OBD II systems of the vehicles covered under this exemption.
