                              AIR RESOURCES BOARD


                          ._ EXECUTIVE ORDER D—472—2
                     Relating to Exemption Under Section 27156
                                  of the Vehicle Code


                              CLEAN AIR FLOW, INC.
                            CLEAN AIR 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 Operations 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 po!IUtion
                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 is 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
                emissions or an increase in fuel economy.


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



                        It has not been determined what effect the 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 1995 and older
        model—year gasoline powered vehicles, excluding those vehicles certified to Low—
        Emission Vehicle (LEV) or Transitional Low—Emission Vehicle {TLEV) standards,
        or vehicles certified to Enhanced Evaporative Emission Standards. This
        exemption is subject to the following conditions:

                1.      No changes are permitted to the device as described in the application
                        for exemption. Any changes to the device, applicable model year, or
a=m,




                        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 advemse 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 respectto the action taken in any advertising or
                         other oral or written communication.


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


      This exemption is issued based on previous testing of similar devices with the same
      operating principle which showed that the device when installed on the vehicle did not
      have any adverse effect on exhaust emissions.

      Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this order.
      The order may be revoked only after a ten—day written notice of intention to revoke the
      order, in 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 after
      hearing that grounds for revocation exist.

      The Bureau of Automotive Repair will be notified by copy of this order.

      Executed at El Monte, California, this 272‘    day of May 2000
