                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—585
                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                   Of the Vehicle Code

                           Fuel Management Technologies, Inc.
                                   "Fuel TurboRamJet"


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 Management Technologies, Inc. of 11821 North Lake Drive, Boynton
Beach, Florida 33436, has applied to ARB for exemption from the prohibitions in Vehicle
Code Sections 27156 and 38391 for the Fuel TurboRamJet manufactured for
installation on 2005 model year and older diesel vehicles as shown below.

      Model                              EngineVehicle Categories

      D—10 FT                            Heavy—duty diesel engines
      D—6 FT                    .        Medium—duty diese! engines
      D4 FT                              Light—duty 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, ARB finds that:

1.    The Fuel TurboRamJet is a metallic cylindrical device installed in the fuel fine.
      The internal components are made up of dissimilar metals with a turbine (vane)
      instalied in the fuel flow path.

2.    The fuel line is part of the required motor vehicle poliution control system.

3.    The Fuel TurboRamJet is intended for use with a required motor vehicle pollution
      control system.

4.    The Fuel TurboRamJet by being installed on the fuel line alters the original
      design of a motor vehicle pollution control system.

5.    The Fuel TurboRamJet is subject to the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section
      27156 and an add—on part as defined by Title 13, CCR Section 1900, (b){1).


                                           «2.

        The Fuel TurboRamJet does not reduce the effectiveness of any required motor
        vehicle pollution control system.

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

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

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

10.     ARB by granting an exemption to Fue! Management Technologies, Inc. for the
        Fuel TurboRamJet does not recommend or endorse in any way the Fuel
        TurboRamJet for emissions reduction, fuel economy, or any other purpose.

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

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

        Marketing of the Fuel TurboRamJet without a permanent label showing the
        Executive Order number, or marketing of the Fuel TurboRamJet under a different
        name or for an application other than the one stated in this Executive Order shall
        be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from ARB. Exemption of this
        product shall not be construed as an exemption to sell, offer for sale, or advertise
        any components of the Fuel TurboRamJet as an individual device.

        Any oral or written references to this Executive Order or its content by Fuel
        Management Technologies, 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 Fuel TurboRamJet and is only a finding that
        the Fuel TurboRamJet 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.

ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE
