                               State of California
                               AIR RESOURCES BOARD


                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—357
                 Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                          j    of the Vehicle Code

                               Helmark Corporation
                         Commercial Fuel Treatment Device

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, Helmark Corporation of Highway 10 East,      Bogalusa, Louisiana 70427,
has applied to the ARB for exemption from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code
Section 27156 for the Commercial Fuel Treatment Device.

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 Air
Resources Board finds:

     1.   The Commercial Fuel Treatment Device 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 Commercial Fuel Treatment Device is intended for use with a
          required pollution control system.

     4.   The Commercial Fuel Treatment Device by being installed on the
          fuel line alters the original design of a motor vehicle pollution
          control system.

     5.   The Commercial Fuel Treatment Device is a device subject to the
          prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 and an add—on part as
          defined by 13 CCR Section 1900(b)(1).

     6.   The Commercial Fuel Treatment Device 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 Commercial Fuel Treatment Device will provide
          either a decrease in emission or an increase in fuel economy.

    8.    It has not been determined what effect use of the Commercial Fuel
          Treatment Device may have on any warranty, either expressed or
          implied, by the manufacturer of a motor vehicle on which the
          device is installed.


Helmark Corporation                                 ORDER D—357
Commercial Fuel Treatment Device                   (Page 2 of 3)



           The Commercial Fuel Treatment Device 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 Helmark Corporation
           for the Commercial Fuel Treatment Device does not recommend or
           endorse in any way the Commercial Fuel Treatment Device for
           emissions reduction, fuel economy, or any other purpose.

IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the Commercial Fuel Treatment Device is exempt
from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on 1993
and earlier model—year vehicles with gasoline or diesel engines subject to
the following conditions:

     1.    This exemption shall not apply to any device, apparatus, or
           mechanism advertised, offered for sale or sold with, or installed
           on,   a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an
           ultimate purchaser.

           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
           California.

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

           Any oral or written references to this Executive Order or its
           content by the Helmark Corporation,   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 fuel economy
           or emissions reduction claims for the Commercial Fuel Treatment
           Device and is only a finding that the device is exempt from the
           prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156.

           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.

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of
this order.  The order may be revoked only after a ten—day written notice of
intention to revoke the order, in which period the holder of the order may
request in writing a hearing to contest the proposed revocation.  If a
hearing is requested, it shall be held within ten days of receipt of the
request and the order may not be revoked until a determination after hearing
that grounds for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this   C$>;3   day of March, 1994.
