                        EXECUTIVE ORDER D—14
            Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156
                        of the Vshicle Code


                         ALBAND ENTERPRISES
                          "¥. C. METER®


Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board by Section
27156 of the Vehicie Code; and

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39023 of
the Health and Safety Code;

IT IS OROERED AND RESOLYED:— That the installation of a "V. C. Meter"
device manufactured by Albane Enterprises has been found to not reduce
the effectiveness of required emission control devices in 1971 and
older model vehicles and therefore is exempt from the prohibitions of
Section 27156 of the Yehicle Code for these model—year vehicles. The
device is irserted between the PCV valve and the intake manifold and
permits a small controlled amount of additional air to enter the P.C.V.
line.

The "Y. . Meter" device is identical in construction and operation to
the Albanoe Enterprises‘"Air Jet" device.   Reference Resolution 70—54—C.
This Executive Order is valid provided that instaliation instructions
for this device will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications
different than those listed by the vehicie manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the device as
originally submitted to the Air Resources Board for evaluation that
adversely affect the vehicle‘s poliution control devices shall invalidate
this Executive Order.

THIS EXECUTIVE OPDBER DOESNOT 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 AKY
ALLEGED BEXEFITS OF TKE "¥W. C. METER" DEVICE.

No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by Air Resources Board" may be
made with respect to the action taken herein in any advertising or other
oral or written compunication.                                 a

Section 17500 of the Business and Professions Cods makes unlawful, untrue
or misleading advertising and Section 17534 makes violation punishable
as a missemeanor.
