                            EXECUTIVE ORDER D—339—1
                   Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                              of the Vehicle Code

                       AMERICAN TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC.
                           THE FORCE MAINTENANCE PAC

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, American Technologies Group, Inc.  has applied to the ARB for
exemption from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for the
Force Maintenance Pac.

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—4S5—S5, the Air
Resources Board finds:

     1.    The Force Maintenance Pac is an add—on device that is placed in
           the air filter in a motor vehicle.

     2.    The air filter is part of the required motor vehicle pollution
           control system.

     3.    The Force Maintenance Pac is intended for use with a required
           pollution control system.

     4.    The Force Maintenance Pac by being placed in the air filter alters
           the original design of a motor vehicle pollution control system.

     5.    The Force Maintenance Pac 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 Force Maintenance Pac 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 Force Maintenance Pac will provide either a
           decrease in emission or an increase in fuel economy.

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

     9.    The Force Maintenance Pac is not a certified motor vehicle
           pollution control device pursuant to Health and Safety Code
           Section 43644.

THE FORCE MAINTENANCE PAC                        (Page 2 of 3)




     10.   The ARB by granting an exemption to American Technologies Group,
           Inc. for The Force Maintenance Pac does not recommend or endorse
           in any way The Force Maintenance Pac for emissions reduction,     fuel
           economy, or any other purpose.

IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that The Force Maintenance Pac 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 American Technologies Group, 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 Force
           Maintenance Pac 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.
