                           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 2012 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 andin 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 judgment, is aware of no
      basis on which the Rentar Fuel Catalyst will provide either a decrease in
      emissions or an increase in fuel economy.


                                            _7

      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 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 IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the Rentar Fuel Catalyst is exempt from the
prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on 2012 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

      No changes are permitted to the device as described in the application for

      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.                                              >
