                   Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                of the Vehicle Code

                            VI—TECH MANUFACTURING, INC.
                                  VITALIZER DEVICE

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, VI—TECH Manufacturing, Inc. has applied to the ARB for exemption
from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for the Vitalizer.

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 Vitalizer 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 Vitalizer is intended for use with a required pollution
           control system.

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

     5.    The Vitalizer 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 Vitalizer 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 Vitalizer will provide either a decrease in
           emission or an increase in fuel economy.

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

     9.    The Vitalizer 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 VI—TECH Manufacturing, Inc.
           for the Vitalizer does not recommend or endorse in any way the
           vitalizer for emissions reduction,    fuel econory, or any other
