                           EXECUTIVE ORDER D—348
                 Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                            of the Vehicle Code

                         ‘General Magnetics Corporation
                                  GMX Model 400

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, General Magnetics Corporation has applied to the ARB for exemption
from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for the GMX Model 400.

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 Sectlon 39516 and Executive Order G—45—
                                                             5, the Air
Resources Board finds:

     1.   The GMX Model 400 is an add—on device that is attached to the fuel
          line in a motor vehicle.                   .

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

          The GMX Model 400 is lntended for use with a required pollution
          control system.

          The GMX Model 400 by being installed on the fuel line alters the
          original design of a motor vehicle pollution control system.

          The GMX Model 400 is a device subject to the prohibitions of
          Vehicle Code Section 27156 and an add—on part as defined by 13 CCR
          Sectlon 1900(b)(1).

          The GMX Model 400 does not reduce the effectiveness of any
          required motor vehicle pollution control device.

          The ARB,   in the exercise of technical judgement,   is aware of no
          basis. on which the GMX Model 400 will provide either a decrease in
          emission or an increase in fuel economy.

          It has not been determined fihat effect use of the GMX Model 400
          may have on any warranty, either expressed or implied, by the °
          manufacturer of a motor vehicle on whiqh the device is installed.

     9.   The GMX Model 400 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 General Magnetics Corporation
          for the GMX Model 400 does not recommend or endorse in any way the
          GMX Model 400 for emissions reduction, fuel economy, or any other

IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the GMX Model 400 is exempt from the prohibitions
of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on 1993 and earlier model—

          ultimate purchaser.                             —

          be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the ARB.
          Exemption of this product shall not be construed as an exemption

          agents, employees, distributors, dealers, or other representatives
