                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—394—3

                              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
(CCR) Section 2222(e) authorize the California Air Resources Board and its Executive
Officer to exempt add—on and modified parts from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code
Section 27156;

WHEREAS, Rentar Environmental Solutions, Inc. has applied to the Air Resources
Board for exemption from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156 for the
Rentar Fuel Catalyst for use on 2005 and older model—year heavy—duty diesel vehicles;

WHEREAS, pursuant to the authority vested in the Executive Officer by Health and
Safety Code Section 39515 and in the Chief of the Mobile Source Operations Division
by Health and Safety Code Section 39516 and Executive Order G—02—003, the Air
Resources Board 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 1900(b)(1).

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

   7.   The Air Resources Board, 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.

   8.   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.


                                                   7.

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

          10. The Air Resources Board 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 emission reduction, fuel economy, or any
              other purpose.

       IT 18 HEREBY RESOLVED that the Rentar Fuel Catalyst is exempt from the
       prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on 2005 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.

          2.   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 Air
               Resources Board prior to marketing in California.

(-\       3.   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 Air Resources Board.

          4.    Exemption of the device shall not be construed as an exemption to sell, offer
               for sale, or advertise any component of the device as individual devices.

          5.   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 emission 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.

          6.   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.

       Executive Order. The Executive Order may be revoked only after a ten—day written
       notice of intention to revoke the Executive Order, in which period the holder of the
       Executive Order may request in writing a hearing to contest the proposed revocation.
