                            CLEAN AIR FLOW CATALYST

WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Section 27156 and Title 13 California Code of

WHEREAS, Clean Air Flow, Inc. of 525 Great Southwest Parkway, Arlington, Texas

Code Section 27156 for the Clean Air Flow Catalyst.

Health and Safety Code Section 39516 and Executive Order G—45—9,     the ARB
finds:

         1.    The Clean Air Flow 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 Clean Air Floļ¬ Catalyst is intended for use with a required
               pollution control system.

         4.    The Clean Air Flow Cafalyst by being installed on the fuel line
               alters the original dMesign of a motor vehicle pollution control
               system.

         5.    The Clean Air Flow Catalyst is a device subject to the
               prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 and an add—on part
               as defined by Title 13, CCR Section 1900(b)(1).

         6.    The Clean Air Flow Catalyst 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 Clean Air Flow Catalyst will provide either
               a decrease in emission or an increase in fuel economy.

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

         9.    The Clean Air Flow Catalyst is not a certified motor vehicle
               pollution control device pursuant to Health and Safety Code
               Section 43644.

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