 IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That installation of the hydrogen generator device,
 manufactured by Central Valley HHO, Inc. (1320 Standiford Avenue #4 PMB 316,
 Modesto, California 95350), has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the
 applicable vehicle pollution control.systems, and therefore, the OSS76, OS136, and
 OSS78 hydrogen generator devices are exempt from the prohibitions in Section 27156
 of the Vehicle Code for all 1920-2014 model year passenger cars, light-duty trucks, and
 medium-duty trucks with gasoline or diesel engines up to 8 liters.

 Diagnostic II System test submitted by Central Valley HHO, Inc. with the hydrogen
 generator device. installed.

 If evidence provides the Air Resources Board with reasons to suspect that the hydrogen
 generator device will affect the durability of the emission control system, Central Valley
 HHO, Inc. shall be required to submit durability data to show that the durability of the
 vehicle emission control system is not, in fact, affected and/or that the add-on or
 modified parts demonstrate adequate durability.

Marketing of the hydrogen generator device using 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 Air Resources Board.

Exemption of the hydrogen generator device shall not be construed as exemption to
sell, offer for sale, or advertise any component of the kit as an individual device.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any hydrogen generator 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 does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the
hydrogen generator device 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.

                                     EVALUATION SUMMARY

 Manufacturer Name: Central Valley HHO, Inc.

 Name of Device: .OSS76, OS136, and OSS78 Hydrogen Generator Device

 Background:
        Central Valley HHO, Inc. of 1320 Standiford Avenue #4 PMB 316, Modesto, California
 95350 has applied for exemption from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the California Vehicle
·Code for its hydrogen generator device. The device is designed for use on 1920-2014 model ·
 year (MY) passenger cars, light-duty trucks, and medium-duty trucks with gasoline or diesel
 engines up to 8.0 liters.

 Recommendation:
        Grant exemption to Central Valley HHO, Inc. as requested and issue Executive Order
 D-732.                               .

 Device Description:
         The hydrogen generator device produces hydrogen through an electrolysis process by
 supplying water from a reservoir containing distilled water and an activator (sodium hydroxide or
 potassium hydroxide) to an electrolysis dry cell containing stainless steel plates that are
 supplied electricity from the vehicle's battery. The device consists of a 2, 3, or 4 quart water
 reservoir, a single cell electrolysis generator (which contain the positive, negative, and neutral
 metal plates), a controller, various electrical components, e·lectrical wiring and connectors, and
 clear braided vinyl supply hose for the hydrogen gas. The device is connected to the vehicle's
 fuel pump relay circuit so that hydrogen gas is only produced when the engine is operating.

 Discussion/Basis for the Recommendation:
        This exemption is based on: FTP, SFTP, and OBD II System tests conducted on a
 2013 MY 2.0 liter Ford Fusion LEV II ULEV and also FTP and OBD II System tests conducted
 on a 2011 MY 6.7 liter Ford F-350 diesel medium-duty truck LEV II ULEV. Testing was
 conducted on these vehicles and modified with the hydrogen generator device to evaluate the
 impact on emissions. Results are shown below:                                               ·

                  test

Notes: 1. The fuel system monitor was not able to set to complete on the 2011 Ford F-350 because the
       vehicle's powertrain control module had not yet been reprogramed, based on Ford Motor
       Company's Technical Service Bulletin 12-8-21. Staff feels that the emission test results are well
       below the emission standards and that this incomplete monitor will not affect the test results.
       2. Deterioration factors (OF) are additive.
       3. Testing laboratory for all above tests- Automotive Testing and Development Services, Inc. in
       Ontario, California.


FTP and SFTP exhaust emission results for the 2013 Ford Fusion and 2011 Ford F-350 showed
that the modified vehicles meet the exhaust emission standards. Testing also showed that the
modification does not have any adverse impact on the vehicle's 080 II System. Similar results
are expected when Central Valley HHO, lnc.'s· hydrogen generator device is used on the
1920-2014 model year passenger cars, light-duty trucks, and medium-duty trucks with gasoline
or diesel engines up to 8 liters stated in this application.
