    WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391, and Title 13, California Code of                   T
    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, North Marketing, Inc. of 1290 Lawrence Station Road, B—7, Sunnyvale, California

    Safety Code Section 39516 and Executive Order G—02—003, the ARB finds that:

6   1.    The MaxMile consists of ceramic catalytic balls in a polypropylene sac deposited ih
          gasoline/diesel vehicle fuel tank through the opening for the fuel gage.

    2.    The fuel tank is part of the required motor vehicle pollution control system; however,
          the materials of the MaxMile will not react adversely with fuel or gas tank material.

          an add—on part as defined by Title 13, CCR Section 1900 (b)(1).

    6.    The MaxMile 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               ‘.
          MaxMile will provide either a decrease in emission or an increase in fuel economy.

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