                            EXECUTIVE ORDER D—303
                 Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                             of the Vehicle Code

                             TECNAGEN INDUSTRIES
                                 GASCAN 360 D

WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Section 27156 and Title 13 California Code of
Regulations (hereafter "CCR") Section 2222(e), authorizes 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, Tecnagen Industries has applied to the ARB for exemption from the
prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for the Gascan 360 D.

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 Gascan 360 D is an add—on device that     is attached to the fuel
          line in a motor vehicle.

          The fuel line is part of the required motor vericle pollution
          control system.

          The Gascan 360 D is intended for use with a required pollution
          control system.

          The Gascan 360 D by being installed on the fuel line alters the
          original design of a motor vehicle pollution control system.

          The Gascan 360 D 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 Gascan 360 D does not reduce the effectiveness of any required
          motor vehicle pollution control device.

          The ARB,   in the exercise of technical    judgement,   is aware of no
          basis on which the Gascan 360 D will provide either a decrease in
          emission or an increase in fuel economy.

          It has not been determined what effect use of the Gascan 360 D may
          have on any warranty, either expressed or implied, by the
          manufacturer of a motor vehicle on which the device is installed.

GASCAN 360 D                                           (Page 2 tf 3)

           The Gascan 360 D 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 Tecnagen Irdustries for the
           Gascan 360 D does not recommend or endorse in any way the Gascan
            360 D for emissions reduction,     fuel economy, cr any other purpose.

IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the Gascan 360 D is exempt from the prohibitions
of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on 1993 ard earlier model—
year vehicles with gasoline or diesel engines subject to the following

     1.    This exemption shall not apply to any device, apparatus, or
           mechanism advertised, offered for sale or sold with, or installed

           application for exemption.  Any changes to the device, applicable

           application other than those listed in the Executive Order shall
           be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the ARB.
           Exemption of this product shall not be construed as an exemption
           to sell, offer for sale, or advertise any component of the
           product as an individual device.

           employees,   distributors,   dealers,   or other representatives must
           include the disclaimer that the Executive Order or the exemption
           it provides is not an endorsement or approval cf any fuel economy
           or emissions reduction claims for the Gascan 350 D and is only a
           finding that the device is exempt from the pro—ibitions of Vehicle
           Code Section 27156.
