                              AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                           EXECUTIVE ORDER D—359
                 Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                            of the Vehicle Code

                             THE ENVIRO GROUP,   INC.

WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Section 27156 and Title 13 California Code of
Regulations (hereafter "CCR") Section 2222(e), authorize 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, The Enviro Group, Inc., of 10303 Lloyd Road, Potomac, Maryland
20854, has applied to the ARB for exemption from the prohibitions of Vehicle
Code Section 27156 for the Econogreen.

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 Econogreen 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 Econogreen is intended for use with a required pollution
          control system.

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

     5.   The Econogreen is a device subject to the prohibitions of Vehicle
          Code Section 27156 and an add—on part as defined by 13 CCR Section

     6.   The Econogreen 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 Econogreen will provide either a decrease in
          emission or an increase in fuel economy.

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

    9.    The Econogreen is not a certified motor vehicle pollution control
          device pursuant to Health and Safety Code Section 43644.

ECONOGREEN                                             (Page 2 of 3)

     10.   The ARB by granting an exemption to The Enviro Group, Inc. for the
           Econogreen does not recommend or endorse in any way the Econogreen
           for emissions reduction, fuel economy, or any other purpose.

IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the Econogreen is exempt from the prohibitions of
Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on 1993 and older model—year
gasoline and diesel powered vehicles 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

           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 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

           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 Econogreen 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.

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
