                                 EXECUTIVE ORDER D—456
                       Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                   of the Vehicle Code


                         INTERNATIONAL ENGINE TECHNOLOGIES,     LTD
                               "FUEL HOMOGENIZER—CHARGER"

WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391, 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
aftermarket devices from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156.

WHEREAS,   International Technologies,   Ltd.   of 115 West Avenua,   Suite 201,
Jenkingtown, Pennsylvania 19046, has applied to the ARB for exemption from the
prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391 for their Fuel Homogenizer—
Charger for installation on 1998 and older model—year vehicles powered by a diesel
engine utilizing liquid coolant.

WHEREAS, pursuant to the authority vested in the Executive Officer by Health and
Safety Code Section 39515 and in the Chief, Mobile Source Operations Division by
Health and Safety Code Section 39516 and Executive Order G—45—9, the ARB finds that
the above add—on device complies with the California Vehicle Code Section 27156 and
Title 13, California Code of Requlations.  It was determined through engineering
evaluation that the device will not reduce the effectiveness of the pollution °
control system of applicable vehicles.  However, the ARB has found no evidence,
based on sound engineering principles, that the Fuel Homogenizer—Charger can produce
significant emission benefits.

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

IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the above Fuel Homogenizer—Charger is exempt from the
prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on the approved
application vehicles subject to the following conditions:

1.   No changes are permitted to the Fuel Homogenizer—Charger System as described in
     the application for exemption, which includes use of appropriate temperature
     control to maintain fuel at engine manufacturer‘s recommended operating
     temperature.   Any changes to the Fuel Homogenizer—Charger or any of its
     components, and other factors addressed in this order must be evaluated and
     approved by the ARB prior to marketing in California.

2.   Marketing of the Fuel Homogenizer—Charger using identifications other than
     those shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the Fuel Homogenizer—
     Charger for application other than the one listed in this 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 components of the Fuel Homogenizer—Charger device as individual
     devices.

3.   Any oral or written references to this Executive Order or its content by
     International Engine Technologies, Ltd., 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 claims for the Fuel Homogenizer—Charger and
     is only a finding that the Fuel Homogenizer—Charger is exempt from the
     prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156.


"FUEL HOMOGENIZER—CHARGER"                                (Page 2 of 2)



     4.   Should the installation of the Fuel Homogenizer—Charger on applicable
          vehicles be determined to result in unacceptable emission increase or
          cause adverse effect on pollution control systems of the vehicles, the ARB
          may require Fuel Homogenizer—Charger to conduct specific tests in order to
          determine the levels of emissions increase.  Should such tests show
          excessive emission increase,        International Engine Technologies, Ltd. may
          be required to cease and desist from marketing the device in California,
          and this exemption may be rescinded, in accordance with established
          procedures.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION, ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL,
OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF ANY CLAIMS OF THE
APPLICANT CONCERNING ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF THE FUEL
HOMOGENIZER—CHARGER.

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this
order.  The order may be revoked only after ten day written notice of intention to
revoke it, during which period the holder of the order may request in writing a
hearing to contest the proposed revocation.    If a hearing is requested, it shall be
held within ten days of receipt of the request, and the order may not be revoked
until a determination is made, after the hearj    , that grounds for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte,   California,    this          ay of June 1998.




                                      R.B. Summerfield, Chief
                                      Mobile Source Operations Division
