                                EXECUTIVE ORDER D—579—1
                        Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                     Of the vehicle Code

                                 NORTH MARKETING, INC.

WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391, and Section 2222(e), Title 13,
California Code of Regulations, authorize the California Air Resources Board 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
94089, has applied to the Air Resources Board for exemption from the prohibitions in Vehicle
Code Sections 27156 and 38391 for Nippan Kenkyuujo CO., LTD‘s MaxMile device.

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 Air Resources Board finds

1.    The MaxMile consists of ceramic catalytic balls in a polypropylene sac deposited in
      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.

3.     The MaxMile is intended for use with a required pollution control system of any vehicle
       and fuel system except vehicles powered by electricity.

4.     The MaxMile by being installed in the fuel tank constitutes a modification of the original
       configuration of the fuel tank; however, the materials of the MaxMile will not react
       adversely with fuel or gas tank material.

5.     The MaxMile 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).

6.     The MaxMile does not reduce the effectiveness of any required motor vehicle pollution
       control system.

7.     The Air Resources Board, 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

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.


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

10.   The Air Resources Board by granting an exemption to North Marketing, Inc. for the
      MaxMile does not recommend or endorse in any way the MaxMile for emissions
       reduction, fuel economy, or any other purpose.

IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the MaxMile is exempt from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code
Section 27156 for installation on 2005 and older model—year gasoline and diesel vehicles
subject to the following conditions:

1.     No changes are permitted to the MaxMile device as described in the application for
       exemption. Any changes to the MaxMile or any of its component, or other factors
       addressed in this order must be evaluated and approved by the Air Resources Board
       prior to marketing in California.

2.     Marketing of the MaxMile without a permanent label showing the Executive Order
       number or marketing of the MaxMile for an application other than the one stated in this
       Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air
       Resources Board. Exemption of this product shall not be construed as an exemption
       to sell, offer for sale, or advertise any components of the MaxMile as an individual

3.     Any oral or written references to this Executive Order or its content by North
       Marketing, 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
       MaxMile and is only a finding that the MaxMile is exempt from the prohibitions of
       Vehicle Code Section 27156.

4.     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
