                           EXECUTIVE ORDER D—205
                 Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                             of the Yehicle Code

                         J. A. LANCE COMPANY, INC.
               FUEL CHARGER MODEL #‘s XL100, XL200 AND XL400

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

WHEREAS, J. A. Lance Company, Inc. has applied to the ARB for exemption from
the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27186 for the Fuel Charger model
#‘s XL100, XL200 and XL400.

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 Charger is an add—on device attached to the fuel line in
          a motor vehicle.

     2.   The Fuel Charger is intended for use with a required motor vehicle
          polliution control system.

          The Fuel Charger by being installed in the engine alters the
          original design of a motor vehicle pollution control system.

          The Fuel Charger 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).

          The Fuel Charger 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 Fuel Charger will provide an
          increase in fuel economy.

          It has not been determined what effect use of the Fuel Charger
          may have on any warranty, either expressed or implied, by the
          manufacturer of a motor vehicle on which the device is installed.

          The Fuel Charger is not a certified motor vehicle pollution
          control device pursuant to Health and Safety Code Section 43644.

          The Air Resources Beard by granting an exemption to J. A. Lance
          Company, Inc. for the Fuel Charger does not recommend or endorse
          in any way the Fuel Charger for emissions reduction, fue!
          economy, or any other purpose.




                                                                               mc

                                   UMMARY



       J. A. Lance Company, Inc. of 22704 Ventura Blvd., #244, Woodland Hills,

California 91364, has applied for exemption from the prohibitions in Section

27156 of the California Vehicle Code for their Fuel Charger model #‘s XL100,

XL200 and XL400.   The Fuel Charger is designed for installation on the

following applications:

       XL100 : 1990 or Older Vehicles, Fuel Injected, Any Fuel Type

       XL200 : 1990 or Older Model Year Vehicles, Fueled with Regular or

               Regular Unleaded Gasoline

       XL400 : 1990 or Older Model Year Vehicles, Fueled with Premium GasolTine

               or Diesel Fuel

       Previously, the Air Resources Board exempted three similar devices;

"Polarion—X" by AZ Indqstries, Inc. , "Petro—Mizer MKI" by P and M Research and

Development Laboratory, and "Fuel Energizer" by Magnetizer Group, Inc., with

the same basic operating principles.   Based on the engineering evaluation of

the device and exemption of similar devices, the staff believes the Fuel

Charger does not have any adverse effect on exhaust emissions.   The staff

recommends the Fuel Charger be exempted from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code

Section 27156 and that Executive Order D—205 be issued.

EVALUATION OF J. A. LANCE COMPANY, INC.‘S FUEL CHARGER FOR EXEMPTION FROM THE
PROHIBITIONS OF VEHICLE CODE SECTION 27156 IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 2222,
TITLE 13, OF THE CALIFORNIA ADMINISTRATIVE CODE

I.     INTRODUCTION

       J. A. Lance Company, Inc. of 22704 Ventura Blvd., #244, Woodland Hills,

California 91364, has applied for exemption from the prohibitions in Section

27156 of the California Vehicle Code for their Fuel Charger model #‘s XL100,

XL200 and XL400.     The Fuel Charger is designed for installation on the

following applications:

       XL100 : 1990 or Older Model Year Vehicles, Fuel Injected, Any Fuel Type

       XL200 : 1990 or Older Model Year Vehicles, Fueled with Regular or

               Regular Unleaded Gasoline

       XL400 : 1990 or Older Model Year Vehicles, Fueled with Premium Gasoline

               or Diesel Fuel

       The applicant submitted specifications of the device for our evaluation.



II.    CONCLUSTONS
       Previously the Air Resources Board (ARB) exempted three similar devices:

"Polarion—X" by AZ Industries, Inc., "Petro—Mizer MKI" by P and M Research and

Development Laboratory, and "Fue! Energizer" by The Magnetizer Group, Inc.

Based on the engineering evaluation of the device and prior exemptions issued

to devices that operate in a manner similar to the Fuel Charger, the staff

believes that the Fuel Charger will not have any adverse effects on the exhaust

emissions from gasoline and diesel powered vehicles.


III.       RECOMMENDATION

         The staff recommends L. A. Lance Company, Inc. be granted an exemption

from the prohibitions in California Vehicle Code Section 27156 for its Fuel

Charger and that Executive Order D—205 be issued.



IV.      DEVICE DESCRIPTION

         The Fuel Charger is a magnetic device designed for installation on fuel

lines.     It consists of three models; XL100, XL200 and XL400.   The device is

designed to fit around the fuel lines and is held in place by two or three

tie raps (depending on the model) and two cotter pins.     The device is a

rectangular shaped two piece non—toxic plastic block encasing four to eight

magnets.     The dimension of the magnets are 1—7/8"long, 7/8" wide by .390"

thick.     Appendix A contains engineering drawings of the device and Appendix B

shows the installation instructions.



v.       DISCUSSION

         J. A. Lance Company, Inc. claims when the device is installed on a

vehicle‘s fuel line, various magnetic fields from the device cause 95 percent

of the fuel molecules to be matched with an oxygen molecule when introduced;

thereby producing a near perfect combustion.     This improves engine

performance and horsepower, reduces dieseling and hesitation, and reduces the

vehicle‘s required maintenance.


       The ARB did not perform any emission or fuel economy tests to

substantiate the claims made by the manufacturer.    No adjustments such as

timing, EGR, fuel metering or any other engine adjustments are included in the

installation instructions.    Previously, the ARB exempted three similar devices:

"Polarion—X" by AZ Industries, Inc., "Petro—Mizer MKI" by P and M Research and

Development Laboratory, and "Fuel Energizer" by The Magnetizer Group, Inc.    The

exemptions were granted based on back—to—back CVS—testing, fuel economy testing

and engineering evaluation.   Because of the previous exemptions issued to

similar devices with the same operating principle and the fact that qualifying

for an exemption is based on not adversely affecting exhaust emissions, the

staff recommends that J.A. Lance Company, Inc. be granted an exemption as

requested.
