                                       State of California
                                   AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                                   EXECUTIVE ORDER D—543

               Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code

                                          Fuelmiser, Inc.

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, Fuelmiser, Inc. of 460 2"" Avenue, Sulite 11A, New York, New York 10016, has
applied to the ARB for exemption from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and
38391 for its Fuelmiser magnet device, for installation on gasoline and diesel vehicles as shown

Vehicle Model—Year              Fuelmiser Model                   Engine Displacement
2002 and older                  SD                                3. 5L or smaller
2002 and older                  XL                                All sizes

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—02—003, the ARB finds that:

1.    The Fuelmiser is a magnetic device attached to the upstream side of the fuel line closest
      to the carburetor or fuel injection, but not installed in the fuel line, and therefore, the
      device does not have any contact with the fuel.

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

3.    The Fuelmiser is intended for use with a required pollution control system of any vehicle
      and fuel system except vehicles powered by electricity.

4.    By being installed on the fuel line, the Fuelmiser constitutes a modification to the original
      configuration of the fuel line.

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

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


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

      The Fuelmiser 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 Fuelmiser, Inc. for the Fuelmiser does not
      recommend or endorse in any way the magnet device for emissions reduction, fuel
      economy, or any other purpose.

IT 18 HEREBY RESOLVED that the Fuelmiser is exempt from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code
Section 27156 for installation on 2002 and older model—year vehicles subject to the following

1.    No changes are permitted to the device as described in the application for exemption.
      Any changes to the Fuelmiser or any of their component, or other factors addressed in
      this order must be evaluated and approved by the ARB prior to marketing in California.

      Marketing of the Fuelmiser without a permanent label showing the Executive Order
      number or marketing of the Fuelmiser for an application other than the one stated in this
      Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the ARB.
      Exemption of the product shall not be construed as an exemption to sell, offer for sale, or
      advertise any components of the Fuelmiser as an individual device.

      Any oral or written references to this Executive Order or its content by Fuelmiser, Inc. its
      principals, agents, employees, distributors, dealers, or other representatives must include
      the disclaimer that the Executive Order and the exemption it provides are not an
      endorsement or approval of any emissions reduction claims for the Fuelmiser, and is only
      a finding that the device 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 communication.
