                  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, Softron International has applied to the ARB for exemption from the
                   prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for the Softron model #3050 fluid
                   conditioner .

                   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 Softron model #3050 fluid conditioner is an add—on device
                                               attached to the fuel                               line in a motor vehicle.

                                               The Softron model #3050 fluid conditioner is intended for use with
                                               a required motor vehicle pollution control system.

                                               The Softron model #3050 fluid conditioner by being instailed in
                                               the engine aiters the original design of a motor vehicle pollution
                                               control system.

                                              The Softron model #3050 fluid conditioner is a device subject to
                                              the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 and add—on part as
                                              defined by 13 CCR Section 1900(b)(1).

                                              The Softron model #3050 fluid conditioner does not reduce the
                                              effectiveness of any required motor vehicle pollution control
                                              device.

                                               The Air Resources Board, in the exercise of technical judgement,
                                               is aware of no basis on which the Softron model #3050 fluid
                                              conditioner will provide an increase in fuel economy.                                                                               m .

                          9.    The Air Resources Board by granting an exemption to Softron
                                International for the Softron model #3050 fluid conditioner does
                                not recommend or endorse in any way the Softron model #3050 fluid
                                conditioner for emissions reduction, fuel economy, or any other
                                purpose.

                    I1T IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the Softron model #3050 fluid conditioner is
                    exempt from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation

    It started with Michael Faraday‘s theory in 1831 of the effects of magnetic fields on water and continued with J. D. Van Der Waals
——~ "W—aolnas, which are in a neutral state. However, these di—poles may be aftfected by magnetic and electric forces which appear to
      ause deflection. A simple form of hydrocarbon fuel is pentane, CS5—H12. Hydrogen has a cage—like structure and has atendency
    to interlock with other elements, not forming other compounds, but temporarily interlocking forming ‘pseudo compounds®. When ~
    the ‘pseudo compounds‘ are influenced by electric and magnetic fields, there is a pronounced interlocking with oxygen causing
    better combustion. It is now believed that the above action takes place in connection with the SOFTRON Fuel Conditioner.

     With today‘s new materials and methods, we at Softron International, have been able to provide devices that use the above
     processes to create bettercombustion in fuel systems. Our modern manutacturing techniques have resulted in a series of systems
     for both fuel andwater that are permanent and maintenancetree. Try these selt—contained, energy conservmg units and see what.
     the science of magnetics can do for you.

     The power of magnetics put to work in energy conservation. The power of magnetics that runs for tens of years andeven hundreds
     of years without any additional input of energy. More scientific knowledge is being discovered daily about the effects of magnetic
     tields on biological, chemical and nuclear systems. This power is perhaps the most cost effective, non—polfuting form of energy
     in mankind‘s knowiledge. This power is now in a form easily used by anyone. Simply splicing the unit into the fuel line allows the
     purchaser to utilize this fantastic energy source. With documented tests to prove this power does conserve energy, there is no
     longer any reason to put off owning these units.
