                               EXECUTIVE ORDER D—472—1
                         Relating to Exemption Under Section 27156
                                      of the Vehicle Code


                                  CLEAN AR FLOW, INC.
                                CLEAN AR FLOW CATALYST

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, Clean Air Flow, Inc. of 525 Great Southwest Parkway, Arlington, Texas 76011 has
applied to the ARB for exemption from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for the
Clean Air Flow Catalyst.

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 finds:

         1.      The Clean Air Flow Catalyst is an add—on device that is attached to the fuel line
                 in a motor vehicle.

                 The fuel line is part of the required motor vehicle pollution control system.

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

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

                 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).

                 The Clean Air Flow Catalyst does not reduce the effectiveness of any required
                 motor vehicle pollution control device.

                 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.


CLEAN AR FLOW, INC.                                                EXECUTIVE ORDER D—472—1
CLEAN AIR FLOW CATALYST                                            (Page 2 of 3)




                  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.                           |

                  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.

IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the Clean Air Flow Catalyst is exempt from the prohibitions of
Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on 1999 and older model—year diesel powered
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.

                  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 order must be evaluated and approved by the ARB prior to
                  marketing in California.

                  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 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 component of the product
                  as an individual device.

                  Any oral or written references to this Executive Order or its content by Clean
                  Air Flow, 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 fuel economy
                  or emissions reduction claims for the Clean Air Flow Catalyst and is only a
                  finding that the device is exempt from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code
                  Section 27156.

                  No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by the Air Resources Board" may be
                  made with respect to the action taken in any advertising or other oral or written
                  communication.
