                          "FUEL ENERGIZER" MODEL AFE—l

WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Section 27156 and Title 13 California Code of
Regulations (hereafter "CCR") Section 2222(e), authorizes the California Air
Resources Board (ARB) and its Executive Officer to exempt add—on and
modified parts from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156.

WHEREAS, The Magnetizer Group, Inc. has applied to the ARB for exemption
from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for the Fuel Enhancer/
Catalytic Fuel Reactor.

WHEREAS, pursuant to the authority vested in the Executive Officer by Health
and Safety Code Section 39515 and in the Chief, Mobile Source Division by
Health and Safety Code Section 39516 and Executive Order G—45—5, the Air
Resources Board finds:

     1.   The "Fuel Energizer" Model AFE~1 is an add—on device that is
          attached to the fuel line in a motor vehicle.

    2.    The fuel line is part of the required motor vehicle pollution
          control system.

    3.    The "Fuel Energizer" Model AFE~1 is intended for use with a
          required pollution control system.

    4.    The "Fuel Energizer" Model AFE~1 by being installed on the fuel
          line alters the original design of a motor vehicle pollution
          control system.

    5.    The "Fuel Energizer" Model AFE~1 is a device subject to the
          prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 and an add—on part as
          defined by 13 CCR Section 1900(b)(1).

    6.    The "Fuel Energizer" Model AFE~1 does not reduce the effectiveness
          of any required motor vehicle pollution control device.

    7.    The ARB,   in the exercise of technical judgement,   is aware of no
          basis on which the "Fuel Energizer" Model AFE—1 will provide
          either a decrease in emission or an increase in fuel economy.

    8.    It has not been determined what effect use of the "Fuel Energizer"
          Model AFE—1 may have on any warranty, either expressed or implied,
          by the manufacturer of a motor vehicle on which the device is
          installed.

"FUEL ENERGIZER" MODEL AFE—1                      (Page 2 of 3)


     9.    The "Fuel Energizer" Model AFE—1 is not a certified motor vehicle
           pollution control device pursuant to Health and Safety Code
           Section 43644.

     10.   The ARB by granting an exemption to The Magnetizer Group, Inc. for
           the "Fuel Energizer" Model AFE—1 does not recommend or endorse in
           any way the "Fuel Energizer" Model AFE—~1 for emissions reduction,
           fuel economy, or any other purpose.

IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the "Fuel Energizer" Model AFE—1 is exempt from
the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on
1993 and earlier model year vehicles equipped with gasoline or diesel
internal combustion engines, subject to the following conditions:

     1.    This exemption shall not apply to any device, apparatus, or
           mechanism advertised, offered for sale or sold with, or installed
           on, a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an
           ultimate purchaser.

     2.    No changes are permitted to the device as described in the
           application for exemption.  Any changes to the device, applicable
           model year,   or other factors addressed in this order must be
           evaluated and approved by the ARB prior to marketing in
           California.

    3.     Marketing of this device using an identification other than that
           shown in this Executive Order or marketing of this device for an
           application other than those listed in the Executive Order shall
           be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the ARB.
           Exemption of this product shall not be construed as an exemption
           to sell, offer for sale, or advertise any component of the
           product as an individual device.

    4.     Any oral or written references to this Executive Order or its
           content by the The Magnetizer Croup, Inc., its principals, agents,
           employees, distributors, dealers, or other representatives must
           include the disclaimer that the Executive Order or the exemption
           it provides is not an endorsement or approval of any fuel economy
           or emissions reduction claims for the "Fuel Energizer" Model AFE—1
           and is only a finding that the device is exempt from the
           prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156.

    5.     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.
