                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—568
                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                   Of the Vehicle Code

                                 Global Fuel Systems, Inc.
                                     "TurboFuelTech"


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, Global Fuel Systems, Inc. of 11450 Elks Circle, Unit A, Rancho Cordova,
California 95742, has applied to the ARB for exemption from the prohibitions in Vehicle
Code Sections 27156 and 38391 for the TurboFuelTech manufactured for use on 2003
model year and older Class 8 diesel trucks.

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 TurboFuelTech is an add—on device installed in the fuel line in a motor
        vehicle.

2.      The TurboFuelTech is intended for use with a required motor vehicle pollution _
        control system.

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

4.      The TurboFuelTech 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 TurboFuelTech does not reduce the effectiveness of any required motor
        vehicle pollution control system.

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


                                                «2.

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

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

             The ARB by granting an exemption to Global Fuel Systems, Inc. for the
             TurboFuelTech does not recommend or endorse in any way the TurboFuelTech
             for emissions reduction, fuel economy, or any other purpose.

       IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the TurboFuelTech is exempt from the prohibitions of
       Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on 2003 model year and older Class 8
       diesel trucks subject to the following conditions:

       1.    No changes are permitted to the TurboFuelTech device as described in the
             application for exemption. Any changes to the TurboFuelTech 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 TurboFuelTech without a permanent label showing the
             Executive Order number or marketing of the TurboFuelTech 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 TurboFuelTech as an individual device.

             exemption it provides is not an endorsement or approval of any emissions
             reduction claims for the TurboFuelTech and is only a finding that the
             TurboFuelTech 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.

       AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING
       ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OF THE TURBOFUELTECH.
