                                 GMX MODEL 400

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

Health and Safety Code Section 39516 and Executive Order G—45~9, the ARB

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

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

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

            original design of a motor vehicle pollution control system.

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

    6.      The GMX Model 400 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 GMX Model 400 will provide either a decrease
            in emission or an increase in fuel economy.

    8.      It has not been determined what effect use of the GMX Model 400
            may have on any warranty, either expressed or implied, by the
            manufacturer or a motor vehicle on which 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.

              for the GMX Model 400 does not recommend or endorse in any way

              other purpose.
