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

WHEREAS, pursuant to the authority vested in the Executive Officer by the
Health and Safety Code Section 39515 and in the Chief, Mobile Source
Division by the Health and Safety Code Section 39516 and Executive Order
G—45—9, the ARB finds that;

     1.   The Rentar Fuel Conditioner is an add—on device that is attached
          to the fuel line in a motor vehicle.

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

    3.    The Rentar Fuel Conditioner is intended for use with a required
          motor vehicle pollution control system.

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

    5.    The Rentar Fuel Conditioner is a device subject to the

          defined by 13 CCR Section 1900(b)(1).

    6.    The Rentar Fuel Conditioner does not reduce the effectiveness of
          any required motor vehicle pollution control system.

    7.    The ARB, in the exercise of technical judgement, is aware of no
          basis on which the Rentar Fuel Conditioner will provide either a
          decrease in emissions or an increase in fuel economy.

    8.    It has not been determined what effect the use of the Rentar Fuel
          Conditioner may have on any warranty, either expressed or implied,
          by th$]m3nufacturer of a motor vehicle on which the device is
          installed.

    9.    The Rentar Fuel Conditioner is not a certified motor vehicle

           Section 43644.

     10.   The ARB by granting an exemption to Rentar Company for the Rentar
           Fuel Conditioner does not recommend or endorse in any way the
           Rentar Fuel Conditioner for emissions reduction, fuel economy, or
           any other purpose.

IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the Rentar Fuel Conditioner is exempt from the
prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on 1996 and
older model—year heavy—duty diesel—powered vehicles subject to the
following conditions:

     1.    This exemption shall not apply to any device, apparatus, or

           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 devijce, applicable
           model—year, or other factors addressed in this Executive 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

           disclaimer that the Executive Order or the exemption it provides
           is not an endorsement or approval of any emissions reduction or
           fuel economy claims for the Rentar Fuel Conditioner 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
