               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

               endorse in any way the "Fuel Energizer" Model AFE—1 for
               emissions reduction, fuel economy, or any other purpose.

                                                                     i P¥e]
