D-569 Document:

                                   State of California
                              AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—569
                     Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                  Of the Vehicle Code

                                 FreEnergy Group, 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, FreEnergy Group, Inc. of 214 South First Street, Rogers, Arkansas 72756,
has applied to the ARB for exemption from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections
27156 and 38391 for the EnergyCel manufactured for use on all 2003 model year and
older gasoline and diesel 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

1.    The EnergyCel is an add—on device installed around the fuel line in a motor

2.    The EnergyCel is intended for use with a required motor vehicle pollution control

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

4.    The EnergyCel 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 EnergyCel 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
       EnergyCel will provide either a decrease in emission or an increase in fuel


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

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

      The ARB by granting an exemption to FreEnergy Group, Inc. for the EnergyCel
      does not recommend or endorse in any way the EnergyCel for emissions
      reduction, fuel economy, or any other purpose.

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

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

      Any oral or written references to this Executive Order or its content by FreEnergy
      Group, 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 EnergyCel and is only a finding that the EnergyCel 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.


                   FREENERGY GROUP, INC.—ENERGYCEL—D—569

made, after the hearing, that grounds for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this   V/Z'”/   day of August 2003.
