WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Section 27156 and Title 13 California Code of

     1.    The Emissions Eliminator—Fuel Booster is an add—on device that is
           attached to the fuel line in a motor vehicle.

           control system.

     3.    The Emissions Eliminator—Fuel Booster is intended for use with a
           required pollution control system.

           prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 and an add—on part as
           defined by 13 CCR Section 1900(b)(1).

     6.    The Emissions Eliminator—Fuel Booster does not reduce the
           effectiveness of any required motor vehicle pollution control

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

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

     9.     The Emissions Eliminator—Fuel Booster is not a certified motor
            vehicle pollution control device pursuant to Health and Safety

     10.   The ARB by granting an exemption to EM Cat, Inc. for the Emissions
