                                     EXECUTIVE ORDER D—394—2
                               Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                            of the Vehicle Code

                           RENTAR ENVIRONMENTAL SOLUTIONS, INC.
                                  RENTAR FUEL CATALYST


     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, Rentar Environmental Solutions, Inc. has applied to the ARB for exemption from
     the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for the Rentar Fuel Catalyst for use on 1999 and
     older model—year heavy—duty diesel vehicles;

     WHEREAS, pursuant to the authority vested in the Executive Officer by the Health and Safety
°m




     Code Section 39515 and in the Chief, Mobile Source Operations Division by the Health and
     Safety Code Section 39516 and Executive Order G—45—9, the ARB finds that;

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

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

         5.   The Rentar Fuel Catalyst 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 Rentar Fuel Catalyst 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 Catalyst will provide either a decrease in emissions or an increase in fuel
              economy.


           RENTAR ENVIRONMENTAL SOLUTIONS, INC.                            EXECUTIVE ORDER D—394—2
           RENTAR FUEL CATALYST                                            (Page 2 of 3)

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

                     The Rentar Fuel Catalyst is not a certified motor vehicle pollution control device
                     pursuant to the Health and Safety Code Section 43644.

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

           IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the Rentar Fuel Catalyst as described and patented under the
           United States Patent number 5,871,000, dated February 16, 1999, is exempt from the
           prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on 1999 and older model—year
           heavy—duty diesel 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
                     Executive 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 Rentar
                     Environmental Solutions, Inc., 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 emissions reduction or
                     fuel economy claims for the Rentar Fuel Catalyst 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 written
                      communication.
