                                      EXECUTIVE ORDER D—531

                                      Relating to Exemptions under
                                   Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code

                                   GF Technology Development, Inc.
                                              GENX2

  WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Section 27156 and Title 13, California Code of Regulations
  (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
  CodeSection 27156;

— WHEREAS, GF Technology Development, Inc. of 298—1199 West Pender Street,
  Vancouver, British Columbia V6E 2R1 has applied to the ARB for exemption from the
  prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for the GENX2 for use on 2002 and older
  model—year gasoline and diesel vehicles equipped with a metal fuel line;

  WHEREAS, pursuant to the authority vested in the Executive Officer by the Health and
  Safety Code Section 39515 and in the Chief of the Mobile Source Operations Division
  by the Health and Safety Code Section 39516 and Executive Order G—45—9, the ARB
  finds that;

       1.       The GENX2 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 GENX2 is intended for use with a required motor vehicle pollution control.
                system.

       4.       The GENX2 by being installed in the fuel line alters the original design of a
                motor vehicle pollution control system.

        5.      The GENX2 is a device subject to the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section
                27156 and an add—on part as defined by 13 CCR Section 1900(b)(1).

     — 6.       The GENX2 does not reduce the effectiveness of any required motor vehicle
                pollution control system.

        7.      The ARB, in the exercise of technical judgement, is aware of no basis on
                which the GENX2 will provide either a decrease in emissions or an increase
                in fuel economy.                            |


                                              7.


            \It has not been determined what effect the use of the GENX2 may have on
             any warranty, either expressed or implied, by the manufacturer of a motor
             vehicle on which the device is installed.

            The GENX2 is not a certified motor vehicle pollution control device pursuant
            to the Health and Safety Code Section 43644.

       10. The ARB by granting an exemption to GF Technology Development, Inc. for
           the GENX2 does not recommend or endorse in any way the GENX2 for
           emission reduction, fuel economy, or any other purpose.

_ IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the GENX2 is exempt from the prohibitions of Vehicle
  Code Section 27156 for installation on 2002 and older model—year gasoline and diesel
  vehicles that are equipped with a metal fuel line:

       1.   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 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 Executive 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 the Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prlor approval is
            obtained from the ARB.

            Exemption of the device shall not be construed as an exemption to sell, offer
            for sale, or advertise any components of the device as individual devices.

            Any oral or written references to this Executive Order or its content by GF
            Technology Development, 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 emission reduction or fuel economy claims for the GENX2
            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 herein in any advertising or other
            oral or written communication.
