IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the "MBI Precombustion
Unit—California Design" device manufactured by the Hydro—Catalyst Corporation
and marketed by Mo—Bile Industries, Piscataway, N. J., has been found to not
reduce the effectiveness of required motor vehicle pollution control devices

The device consists of two formed screens made of fine mesh wire cloth
mounted under the carburetor barrels.   The upstream screen is plated with
cadmium and the downstream screen with nickel.

construction and operation to the Hydro—Catalyst Corporation‘s "Precombustion
Catalyst—California Design" device. Reference Executive Order D—35.

the performance of the vehicle‘s pollution control devices shall
invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of this device using an identification other than that shown
in this Executive Order or marketing of this device for an application

ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING ANTI—PQOLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY
ALLEGED BENEFITS OF THE "MBI PRECOMBUSTION UNIT—CALIFORNIA DESIGN" DEVICE.

No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by 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 unlawful, untrue
or misleading advertising, and Section 17534 makes such violation punishable
as‘a misdemeanor.

Sections 39130 and 39184 of the Health and Safety Code provide as follows:

     "39130.   Ho person shall install, sell, offer for sale, or advertise,
     or, except in an application to the board for certification of a
     device, represent, any device as a motor vehicle pollution control
     device unless that device has been certified by the 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 section is
     a misdemeanor."

     tise, or, except in an application to the board for accred1tat1on of a
     dev1ce, represent any device as a motor vehicle pollution control

     accredited by the board. No person shall sell, offer for sale, adver—
     tise, or represent any motor vehicle pollution control device as an
     accredited device which, in fact, is not an accredited device.     Any

On the basis of its evaluation of the "MBI Precombustion Unit—California
Design" device, the Air Resources Board has determined that the "MBI
Precombustion UnvtCalifornia Design" device does not have a beneficial
effect on gasoline mileage or exhaust emissions.

mitted to the Attorney General of California for such action as he deems
advisable.

                                Staff Report

                      Evaluation of Mo—Bile Industries
         "MBI Precombustion Catalyst—California Design" Device
                   For Compliance with the Requirements of
                      Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code


 1. Introduction
    Mo—Bile Industries, Piscataway, New Jersey has requested permission to

   market a device in California identified as "MBI Precombustion Catalyst—

    California Design".     This device is to be manufactured by the Hydro—     .

    Catalyst Corporation, Old Bridge, New Jersey, and is to be identical

    in construction and operation to the Hydro—Catalyst Corporation‘s

    "Precombustion Catalyst—California Design".     The Air Resources Board

    Staff has evaluated an application submitted by Hydro—Catalyst'Corpora~

    tion for an exemption from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the

   Vehicle Code for the "Precombustion Catalyst—California Design" device

   and recommended that the exemption be granted.        Executive Order D—35

   was issued to Hydro-Cata1ys£ Corporation granting the exemption for the

    "Precombustion Catalyst—California Design" device.


II. Device Description

   For a description of the construction and operation of the "MBI Precombus—

   tion Catalyst—Califoria Design" device, see the report of the Staff

   evaluation of Hydro—Catalyst Corporations‘ "Precombustion Catalyst—California

   Design" device dated July 23, 1974.


"MBI Precombustion Catalyst—California Design" Device       dJduly 23, 1974




III. Conclusions and Recommendations

    The Staff has evaluated the "Precombustion Catalyst—California Design"

    device and found that it has no significant effects on exhaust emissions

    or fuel economy.   It is the Staff opinion that the "MBI Precombustion
    Catalyst—California Design" device, being identical in construction and

    operation, would also produce the same effects.


     It is recommended that Mo—Bile Industries be granted an exemption from

     the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for its "MBI Pre—

    combustion Catalyst—California Design" device for use on 1974 and older

    model—year vehicles.
