                                      "Fuel FX Model T—3 Reactor"

      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 FX International, Inc. of 12730 High Bluff, Suite 260, San Diego,
      California, 92130, has applied to the ARB for exemption from the prohibitions in Vehicle
      Code Sections 27156 and 38391 for the Fuel FX Model T—3 Reactor manufactured for
      use on 2005 model year and older diesel—powered vehicles.

      WHEREAS, pursuant to the authority vested in the Executive Officer by Health and
N     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 FX Model T—3 Reactor is an add—on device installed in the fuel line in a
               motor vehicle.

      2.      . The Fuel FX Model T—3 Reactor is intended for use with a required motor vehicle
                pollution control system.

      3.       The Fuel FX Model T—3 Reactor by being installed in or around the fuel line alters
               the original design of a motor vehicle pollution control system.

      4.       The Fuel FX Model T—3 Reactor 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 FX Model T—3 Reactor 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
               Fuel FX Model T—3 Reactor will provide either a decrease in emission or an
(-\            increase in fuel economy.


                                         «2.                                                 i

7.    The ARB has not determined what effect the use of the Fuel FX Model T—3
       Reactor may have on any warranty; either expressed or implied, by the
      manufacturer of a motor vehicle on which the device is installed.

8.    The Fuel FX Model T—3 Reactor is not a certified motor vehicle pollution control
      device pursuant to Health and Safety Code Section 43644.

9.    The ARB by granting an exemption to Fuel FX International, Inc. for the Fuel FX
      Model T—3 Reactor does not recommend or endorse in any way the Fuel FX
      Model T—3 Reactor for emissions reduction, fuel economy, or any other purpose.

prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on 2005 model year and

      in the application for exemption. Any changes to the Fuel FX Model T—3 Reactor

2.    Marketing of the Fuel FX Model T—3 Reactor without a permanent label showing
      the Executive Order number or marketing of the Fuel FX Model T—3 Reactor 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 Fuel FX Model T—3 Reactor as an individual device.

3.    Any oral or written references to this Executive Order or its content by Global
       Fuel Systems, Inc., its principals, agents, employees, distributors, dealers, or
