                   Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                               of the Vehicle Code

                                  AZAKA COMPANY

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, Azaka Company has applied to the ARB for exemption from the
prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for the Polarion—X.

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 Polarion—X 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.

    3.     The Polarion—X is intended for use with a required pollution
           control system.

    4.     The Polarion—X by being installed on the fuel line alters the
           original design of a motor vehicle pollution control system.

    5.     The Polarion~—X 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).

    6.     The Polarion—X does not reduce the effectiveness of any required
           motor vehicle pollution control device.

    7.     The ARB,   in the exercise of technical judgement,   is aware of no
           basis on which the Polarion—X will provide either a decrease in
           emission or an increase in fuel economy.

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

     9.    The Polarion—X is not a certified motor vehicle pollution control
           device pursuant to Health and Safety Code Section 43644.

     10.   The ARB by granting an exemption to Azaka Company for the
           Polarion—X does not recommend or endorse in any way the Polarion—X
           for emissions reduction, fuel economy, or any other purpose.
