                                                (Page 2 of 3)


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 ARB
finds that the Electromotive, Inc.‘s Fuel Injection Conversion Kit complies
with the California Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391, and Title 13,
California Code of Regulations, Section 2222.

IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that Electromotive,     Inc.‘s Fuel Injection Conversion
Kit is exempt from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391
for installation on applicable vehicles subject to the following conditions:

   1..   The installation of the 4.2L Jeep Fuel Injection Conversion Kit
         will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different
         from those submitted by the device manufacturer.

   2.    Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the JFI kit, as
         exempted by the ARB, that adversely affect the performance of a
         vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate the Executive
         Order.

   3.    Marketing of the JFI kit using identifications other than those shown
         in the exemption application or marketing of the JFI for vehicle
         applications other than the ones listed in this order shall be
         prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the ARB.  Exemption
         of the JFI kit shall not be construed as an exemption to sell, offer
         for sale,   or advertise any of its components as individual devices.

   4.    Any oral or written references to this Executive Order or its content
         by Electromotive, 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 emissions reduction claims for
         the JFI kit and is only a finding that it is exempt from the
         prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the
use of the JFI kit may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by
the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on results from emissions tests
conducted in accordance with Cold—start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure.
However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist for believing that use
of the TEC II Computer as part of the JFI kit may adversely affect emissions
of motor vehicles when operating under conditions outside the parameters of
the previously prescribed test procedures.  Accordingly, the ARB reserves
the right to conduct additional emissions tests,    in the future,   as such
tests are developed, that will more adequately measure emissions from all
cycle phases.  If such test results demonstrate that the performance of the
JFI kit adversely affects emissions during off—cycle conditions (defined as
those conditions which are beyond the parameters of the Cold—start CVS—75
Federal Test Procedure)}), this Executive Order shall be effectively rescinded
as of the date the test results are validated.

Further, if such test results or other evidence provides the ARB with reason
to suspect that TEC II will affect the durability of the emission control
system, Electromotive, Inc. shall be required to submit durability data to


ELECTROMOTIVE,     INC.                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—346—1
                                                     (Page 3 of 3)

show that the durability of the vehicle emission control system is not, in
fact affected and/or that the add—on or modified part demonstrates adequate
durability.

In addition to the foregoing, the ARB reserves the right in the future to
review this Executive Order and the exemption provided herein to assure that
the exempted add—on or modified part continues to meet the standards and
procedures of Title 13, California Code of Regulations, Section 2222 et seq.
and any future amendments thereto.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION, ACCREDITATION,
APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF ANY
CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED
BENEFITS OF ELECTROMOTIVIE, INC.*‘S 4.2L JEEP FUEL INJECTION CONVERSION KIT.

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.

Section 17500 of the Business and Professions Code makes untrue or
misleading advertising unlawful, and Section 17534 makes violation
punishable as a misdemeanor.

Section 43644 of the Health and Safety Code provides as follows:

   "43644,   (a)   No person shall install,      sell,    offer for sale,   or advertise,
   or, except in an application to the state board for certification of a
   device, represent, any device as a motor vehicle pollution control device
   for use on any used motor vehicle unless that device has been certified
   by the state board.  No person shall sell, offer for sale, advertise, or
   represent any motor vehicle pollution control device as a certified
   device which, in fact, is not a certified device.  Any violation of this
   subdivision is a misdemeanor."

Violation of any of the above conditions of this Executive Order may result
in its rescission or submission to the Attorney General of California for
such action as he deems advisable.

Executive Order No. D—346 dated February 1,          1994,   is hereby superseded and
of no further force and effect.                       :<
