                                  SUMMARY


       B & D Research and Development, of 15948 Arminta St., Van Nuys, CA

91406, has applied for an exemption from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of

the California Vehicle Code for the Magna Charger mode! number MC1OA.    The

Magna Charger model number MC1OA is designed for installation on 1990 and older

model year light duty vehicles.

       Previously, the Air Resources Board 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 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 Magna

Charger model number MC1OA does not have any adverse effect on exhaust

emissions.   The staff recommends the Magna Charger model number MC1OA be

exempted from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156 and that Executive

Order D—212 be issued.
