                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—314
                  Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                             of the Vehicle Code

                             FUELSAVER OVERSEAS LIMITED
                                     FUELSAVER

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, Fuelsaver Overseas Limited has applied to the ARB for exemption
from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for the Fuelsaver.

WEEREAS, 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 ARB
finds:

     1.    The Fuelsaver is an add—on device that is attached to the fuel
             ine in a motor vehicle.

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

     3.    The Fuelsaver is intended for use with a required pollution
           control system.

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

     5.    The Fuelsaver 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 Fuelsaver does not reduce the effectiveness of any required
           motor vehicle pollution control device.

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

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

Fuelsaver                                           (Page 2 of 3)


     9.     The Fuelsaver 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 Fuelsaver Overseas Limited for
            the Fuelsaver does not recommend or endorse in any way the
            Puelsaver for emissions reduction,   fuel economy,        or any other
            purpose.

IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the Fuelsaver is exempt from the prohibitions of
Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on 1993 and earlier model—year
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 marksting in
            California.

     3.     Marketing of this device using an identificatisn other than that
            shown in this Executive Order or marketing of        is    device for an
            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.

    4.      Any oral or written references to this Executive Order or its
            content by the Fuelsaver Overseas Limited, its principals, agents,
            employees, distributors, dealers, or other representatives must
            include the disclaimer that the Executive Orde: or the exemption
            it provides is not an endorsement or approval c? any fuel economy
            or emissions reduction claims for the Fuelsaver and is only a
            finding that the device is exempt from the prolibitions of Vehicle
            Code Section 27156.

    5.      No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by the   r Resources
            Board" may be made with respect to the action tsken herein in any

                                     SUMMARY




          Fuelsaver Overseas Limited of St. Anthony‘s House, Rousdon, Lyme Regis,

Dorset DT7 3XP, England, has applied for exemption from the prohibitions in

Section 27156 of the California Vehicle Code for the Fuelsaver device.     The

device is designed for installation on 1993 and older model—year vehicles.

          Previously the Air Resources Board (ARB) exempted three similar devices;

"Fuel Charger" by J. A. Lance Company, Inc.,    "Fuel—Energizer" by the Magnetizer

Group, Inc. and "Magna Charger" by B & D Research and Development.     Based on

the engineering evaluation of the Fuelsaver device and exemptions issued for

the devices that operate in a manner similar to the Fuelsaver, the staff

believes that the Fuelsaver will not have any adverse effects on the exhaust

emissions from motor vehicles.

          The staff recommends that the Fuelsaver device be exempted from the

prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156 and that Executive Order D—314 be

issued.

           FOR EXEMPTION FROM THE PROHIBITIONS OF VEHICLE CODE SECTION
             27156 IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 2222, TITLE 13, OF THE
                        CALIFORNIA CODE OF REGULATIONS



I.     INTRODUCTION

       Fuelsaver Overseas Limited of St. Anthony‘s House, Rousdon, Lyme Regis,

Dorset DT7 3XP, England, has applied for an exemption from the prohibitions of

Vehicle Code Section    (VC)   27156 for the Fuelsaver device.   The device is

designed for installation on 1993 and older model~year vehicles.        The applicant

submitted installation instructions and drawings of the device for our

evaluation.

II.    CONCLUSTION

       Previously, the Air Resources Board (ARB) exempted three similar

devices;   "Fuel Charger" by J. A. Lance Company, Inc.,    "Fuel—Energizer" by the

Magnetizer Group,    Inc.   and "Magna Charger" by B & D Research and Development".

Based on the engineering evaluation of the device and the exemptions issued to

cther devices that operate in a manner similar to the Fuelsaver,      the staff has

determined the Fuelsaver will not have any adverse effects on the exhaust

emissions from motor vehicles.

III.   RECOMMENDATION

       The staff recommends that Fuelsaver Overseas Limited be granted an

exemption from the prohibitions in California Vehicle Code Section 27156 for

the Fuelsaver device and that Executive Order D—314 be issued.

Iv.    DEVICE DESCRIPTION

       The Fuelsaver is constructed out of tin alloy and magnetic ferrite.        The

total length of the cylindrical device depends on the model used which, can

vary from 4 to 12 inches in length.      The device is designed to be installed

inline with the fuel supply line using hose clamps.

                                          —1—


v.      DISCUSSION

        Fuelsaver Overseas Limited claims that the Fuelsaver, when installed on

a vehicle‘s fuel line, provides more combustion and better lubrication to the

engine by depositing a tin amalgam into and electromagnetically treating the

fuel.   The manufacturer stated that the tin helps lubricate and cushion engine

parts while the magnetic ferrite core reverses the polarity of the

hydrocarbons.   The manufacturer claims this device decreases emissions and

increases driveability.   The device is further claimed to reduce and clean

bacteria build—up and waxing in diesel injectors.     The ARB did not perform any

testing on the device to substantiate the claims made by the manufacturer.

However,   it is the staff‘s opinion that the technical principles underlying the

stated function of the device are not capable of producing any effects on

emissions and fuel economy.

        The ARB previously exempted three similar devices;   "Fuel Charger" by J.

A. Lance Company, Inc.,   "Fuel—Energizer" by the Magnetizer Group, Inc. and

"Magna Charger" by B & D Research and Development".    Because of previous

exemptions issued to similar devices with the same operating principle as the

Fuelsaver and the fact that qualifying for an exemption is based on not

adversely affecting exhaust emissions,   the staff recommends that Fuelsaver

Overseas Limited be granted an exemption as requested.
