                                 EXECUTIVE ORDER D—559—1
                          Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                       Of the vehicle Code

                                THE MAGNUM GROUP
                   "DIESELCRAFT DIESEL FUEL PURIFIER/SEPARATOR"

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, The Magnum Group of 10500 Bluegrass Trail, P.O. Box 7670, Auburn, California
95604, has applied to the ARB for exemption from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections
27156 and 38391 for its Dieselcraft Diesel Fuel Purifier/Separator, Models 5—29—8SE and 30—
200—12SE. The Dieselcraft Diesel Fuel Purifier/Separator is for installation on 2004 and older
_ model—year vehicles powered by a diesel engine. Model 5—29—8SE is for diesel engines with
  fuel flow rate between 5 to 29 gallons per hour, and Model 30—200—12SE is for diesel engines
  with fuel flow rate of 30 to 200 gallons per hour.

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 Dieselcraft Diesel Fuel Purifier/Separator is an add—on device installed in the fuel
       line.

2.     The Dieselcraft Diesel Fuel Purifier/Separator is a centrifuge separator, which removes
       water and solid contaminants in diesel fuel. It is made up of cylindrical housing, with
       baffles installed at determined angles to create centrifugal motion of the flowing fuel.

3.     The fuel line is part of the required motor vehicle pollution control system. The
       Dieselcraft Diesel Fuel Purifier/Separator by being installed in the fuel line alters the
       original configuration of the fuel line.

4.     The Dieselcraft Diesel Fuel Purifier/Separator 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).
5.     The Dieselcraft Diesel Fuel Purifier/Separator 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 device
       will provide either a decrease in emission or an increase in fuel economy.

7.     The ARB has not determined what effect the use of the Dieselcraft Diesel Fuel
       Purifier/Separator may have on any warranty; either expressed or implied, by the
       manufacturer of a motor vehicle on which the device is installed.


                                                2.

       The Dieselcraft Diesel Fuel Purifier/Separator is not a certified motor vehicle pollution
       control device pursuant to Health and Safety Code Section 43644.

       The ARB by granting an exemption to The Magnum Group for the Dieselcraft Diesel
       Fuel Purifier/Separator does not recommend or endorse in any way the device for
       emissions reduction, fuel economy, or any other purpose.

IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the Dieselcraft Diesel Fuel Purifier/Separator is exempt from
the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on 2004 and older model—year
diesel vehicles subject to the following conditions:

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

       Marketing of the Dieselcraft Diesel Fuel Purifier/Separator without a permanent label
       showing the Executive Order number or marketing of the device 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 this product shall not be construed
       as an exemption to sell, offer for sale, or advertise any components of the Dieselcraft
       Diesel Fuel Purifier/Separator as an individual device.

       Any oral or written references to this Executive Order or its content by The Magnum
       Group, 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 Dieselcraft
       Diesel Fuel Purifier/Separator, 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.
