         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, International Imperial Trading Co., Inc. of 5202 Beeman Avenue, North
         Hollywood, California 91607, has applied to the ARB for exemption from the
         prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for the Petromizer.

         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—9,      the ARB

                1.        The Petromizer 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.       j

                3.        The Petromizser is intended for use with a required pollution
                          control system.

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

                5.        The Petromizer is a device subject to the prohibitions of

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

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

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

                10.       The ARB by granting an exemption to International Imperial
                          Trading Co., Inc. for the Petromizer does not recommend or
                          endorse in any way the Petromizer for emissions reduction,     fuel
                          economy, or any other purpose.

                        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.

                 4.     Any oral or written references to this Executive Order or its
