                                   EXECUTIVE ORDER D—307~1
                        Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                   of the Vehicle Code

                                       EM CAT, INC.
                             POWERTECH 2000/EMISSION PANTHER

       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, EM Cat, Inc. has applied to the ARB for exemption from the
       prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for the Powertech 2000/Emission
       Panther.

       wWHEREAS, 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 Powertech 2000/Emission Panther 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 Powertech 2000/Emission Panther is intended for use with a
                 required pollution control system.

           4.    The Powertech 2000/Emission Panther by being installed on the fuel
                 line alters the original design of a motor vehicle pollution
                 control system.

           5.    The Powertech 2000/Emission Panther 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 Powertech 2000/Emission Panther 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 Powertech 2000/Emission Panther will provide
                 either a decrease in emission or an increase in fuel economy.

           8.    It has not been determined what effect use of the Powertech
                 2000/Emission Panther may have on any warranty, either expressed
                 or implied, by the manufacturer of a motor vehicle on which the
                 device is installed.

a2~.
           9.    The Powertech 2000/Emission Panther is not a certified motor
                 vehicle pollution control device pursuant to Health and Safety
                 Code Section 43644.

POWERTECH 2000/EMISSION PANTHER                      (Page 2 of 3)




     10.   The ARB by granting an exemption to EM Cat,     Inc.   for the Powertech
           2000/Emission Panther does not recommend or endorse in any way the
           Powertech 2000/Emission Panther for emissions reduction, fuel
           economy, or any other purpose.

IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the POWERTECH 2000/EMISSION PANTHER is exempt
from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on 1993
and older model—year gasoline and diesel powered vehicles subject to the
following conditions:

     1.    This exemption shall not apply to any device, apparatus, or
           mechanism advertised, offered for sale or sold with, or installed
           on, a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an
           ultimate purchaser.

     2.    No changes are permitted to the device as described in the
           application for exemption.  Any changes to the device, applicable
           model year, or other factors addressed in this order must be
           evaluated and approved by the ARB prior to marketing in
           California.

     3.    Marketing of this device using an identification other than that
           shown in this Executive Order or marketing of this device for an
           application other than those listed in 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.

     4.    Any oral or written references to this Executive Order or its
           content by the EM Cat, Inc.     its principals, agents, 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 of any fuel economy or emissions
           reduction claims for the Powertech 2000/Emission Panther and is
           only a finding that the device is exempt from the prohibitions of
           Vehicle Code Section 27156.

     5.    No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by the Air Resources
           Board" may be made with respect to the action taken herein in any
           advertising or other oral or written communication.

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of
this order.   The order may be revoked only after a ten—day written notice of
intention to revoke the order,    in which period the holder of the order may
request in writing a hearing to contest the proposed revocation.        If a
hearing is requested, it shall be held within ten days of receipt of the
request and the order may not be revoked until a determination after hearing
that grounds for revocation exist.
