                               EXECUTIVE ORDER D—561—1
                  Relating to Exemptions Under Sections 27156 and 38391
                                    Of the Vehicle Code

                             Fuel Preporator International, Inc.
                                      Fuel Preporator


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, Fuel Preporator International, Inc. of 5400 Business 50 West, Suite 8,
Jefferson City, Missouri, 65109, has applied to the ARB for exemption from the
prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391 for the Fuel Preporator for
installation on 2003 and older model year diesel powered vehicles.

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 Fuel Preporator is an add—on device installed into the fuel line in a motor
        vehicle or motor vehicle engine.

2.      The Fuel Preporator is intended for use with a required motor vehicle or engine
        pollution control system.

3.      The Fuel Preporator by being installed into the fuel line alters the original design
        of a motor vehicle pollution control system.

4.      The Fuel Preporator 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 Fuel Preporator does not reduce the effectiveness of any required motor
        vehicle or engine pollution control system.


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

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

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

      The ARB by granting an exemption to Fue!l Preporator International, Inc. for the
      Fuel Preporator does not recommend or endorse in any way the Fuel Preporator
      for emissions reduction, fuel economy, or any other purpose.

IT I1S HEREBY RESOLVED that the Fuel Preporator is exempt from the prohibitions of
Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on 2003 and older model—year diesel—
powered vehicles and engines subject to the following conditions:

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

      Marketing of the Fuel Preporator without a permanent label showing the Executive
      Order number or marketing of the Fuel Preporator 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 Fuel
      Preporator as an individual device.

      Any oral or written references to this Executive Order or its content by Fuel
      Preporator International, 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
      emissions reduction claims for the Fuel Preporator and is only a finding that the
      Fuel Preporator 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.

5.    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.

ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE
AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING
ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OF FUEL PREPORATOR INTERNATIONAL, INCYS
FUEL PREPORATOR.

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this order.
