WHEREAS,   Vehicle Code Section 27156 and Title 13 California Code of
Regulations    (hereafter "CCR") Section 2222(e), authorize 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. of 7137 Durham Road, Pipersville,

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.

            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 Title 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

    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 or a motor vehicle on which the
            device is installed.

     10.       The ARB by granting an exemption to The Magnetizer Group, Inc.
               for the "Fuel Energizer" Model AFE—1 does not recommend or
