                                EXECUTIVE ORDER D—612

                                Relating to Exemptions under
                             Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code

                                      The Energy Group
                                    Fossil Fuel Stabilizer

WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Section 27156 and Title 13, California Code of Regulations
{CCR) Section 2222(e) authorize the California Air Resources Board and its Executive
Officer to exempt add—on and modified parts from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code
Section 27156;

WHEREAS, The Energy Group has applied to the Air Resources Board for exemption
from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156 for the Fossil Fuel Stabilizer for use
on 1994 and older model—year gasoline vehicles and 2006 and older model—year diesel
and natural gas vehicles;

WHEREAS, pursuant to the authority vested in the Executive Officer by the Health and
Safety Code Section 39515 and in the Chief of the Mobile Source Operations Division
by the Health and Safety Code Section 39516 and Executive Order G—02—003, the Air
Resources Board finds that;

     1.   The Fossil Fuel Stabilizer is an add—on device that is attached to the fuel line
          in a motor vehicle.

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

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

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

     5.   The Fossil Fuel Stabilizer is a device subject to the prohibitions of Vehicle
          Code Section 27156 and an add—on part as defined by 13 CCR Section
          1900(b)(1).

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

     7.   The Air Resources Board, in the exercise of technical judgment, is aware of
          no basis on which the Fossil Fuel Stabilizer will provide either a decrease in
          emissions or an increase in fuel economy.


                                            «2.


          It has not been determined what effect the use of the Fossil Fuel Stabilizer
          may have on any warranty, either expressed or implied, by the manufacturer
          of a motor vehicle on which the device is instafled.

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

    10. The Air Resources Board by granting an exemption to The Energy Group for
        the Fossil Fuel Stabilizer does not recommend or endorse in any way the
        Fossil Fuel Stabilizer for emission reduction, fuel economy, or any other
        purpose.

IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the Fossil Fuel Stabilizer is exempt from the
prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on 1994 and older
model—year gasoline vehicles and 2006 and older model—year diesel and natural gas
vehicles subject to the following conditions:

     1.   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 changes are permitted to the device as described in the application for
          exemption. Any changes to the device, applicable model—year, or other
          factors addressed in this Executive Order must be evaluated and approved by
          the Air Resources Board prior to marketing in California.

          Marketing of this device using an identification other than that shown in this
          Executive Order or marketing of this device for an application other than
          those listed in the Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is
          obtained from the Air Resources Board.

          Exemption of the device shall not be construed as an exemption to sell, offer
          for sale, or advertise any components of the device as individual devices.

          Any oral or written references to this Executive Order or its content by The
          Energy Group, 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 emission
          reduction or fuel economy claims for the Fossil Fuel Stabilizer and is only a
          finding that the device is exempt from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code
          Section 27156.

          No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by the Air Resources Board," may
          be made with respect to the action taken herein in any advertising or other
          oral or written communication.
