of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on 1998 and older model—year

                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

                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.

                provides is not an endorsement or approval of any fuel economy

                Vehicle Code Section 27156.

        5.      No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by the Air Resources
