                                    EXECUTIVE ORDER D—504
                            Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                         Of the vehicle Code

                                      ZEPPELIN PRODUCTS
                                        FUELSAVER 2000

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, Zeppelin Products of 24 Sixth Place #202, Long Beach, California 90802, has
applied to the ARB for exemption from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and
38391 for Fuelsaver 2000, manufactured by Success Fuels 2000 (Pty) Limited.

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:

1.   *_   The Fuelsaver 2000 is an add-oh device installed around the fuel line in a motor

2.        The Fuelsaver 2000 is intended for use with a required motor vehicle pollution control
          system.                                                               .

3.        The Fuelsaver 2000 by being installed around the fuel line alters the original design of
          a motor vehicle pollution control system.

4.        The Fuelsaver 2000 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).

5.        The Fuelsaver 2000 does not reduce the effectiveness of any required motor vehicle
          pollution control system.

6.        The ARB, in exercise of technical judgement, is aware of no basis on which the
          Fuelsaver 2000 will provide either a decrease in emission or an increase in fuel

7.        It has not been determined what effect the use of the Fuelsaver 2000 may have on
          any warranty; either expressed or implied, by the manufacturer of a motor vehicle on
          which the device is installed.

       The Fuelsaver 2000 is not a certified motor vehicle pollution control device pursuant to
       Health and Safety Code Section 43644.

       The ARB by granting an exemption to Zeppelin Products for the Fuelsaver 2000 does
       not recommend or endorse in any way the Fuelsaver 2000 for emissions reduction,
       fuel economy, or any other purpose.

IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the Fuelsaver 2000 is exempt from the prohibitions of
Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on 2000 and older model—year vehicles subject to
the following conditions:

1.     No changes are permitted to the Fuelsaver 2000 device as described in the application
       for exemption. Any changes to the Fuelsaver 2000, applicable model years, or other
       factors addressed in this order must be evaluated and approved by the ARB prior to
       marketing in California.

       Marketing of the Fuelsaver 2000 without a permanent label showing the Executive
       Order number or marketing of the Fuelsaver 2000 for an application other than that
       stated 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 Fuelsaver 2000 as an individual

       Any oral or written references to this Executive Order or its content by Zeppelin
       Products, 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
       Fuelsaver 2000 and is only a finding that the Fuelsaver 2000 is exempt from the
       prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156.

       This exemption shall not apply to any device, apparatus, or mechanism advertised,
       offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with
       transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

       No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by the Air Resources Board" may be made
       with respect to this Executive Order in any advertising or other oral or written
