Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39515 and Section 39516 of
the Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G-45-9;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the SS 11 Fuel Saver,
manufactured and marketed by Stainlesssteel 11, Inc., 3135 La Clede Ave., Los Angeles,
California 90039 has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle
pollution control system and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of Section 271 56 of the
Vehicle Code for selected 2007 and older fuel-injected vehicles with circular air intake hoses
(see device manufacturer catalog).

The SS 11 Fuel Saver is a one-piece metal device installed in the intake air ducting between
the air cleaner and the throttlebody. No emission contrbl components are removed or
relocated with the installation of the SS 11 Fuel Saver.

This Executive Order is valid provided the installation instructions for the SS 11 Fuel Saver will
not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of the vehicle
manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operatkg conditions of the SS 11 Fuel Saver, as exempt by
the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicle's pollution
control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Executive Order or marketing of the SS 11 Fuel Saver for an application other than those
listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air

sell, offer for sale, or advertise any component of the kit as an individual device.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the SS 11
Fuel Saver may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle
manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on an engineering evaluation which determined that the
SS 11 Fuel Saver will have no adverse impact on exhaust emissions if tested in accordance
with the Cold-Start CVS-75 Federal Test Procedure. Furthermore, On-Board Diagnostic II


(OBD 11) testing, using a 2007 model-year Ford Focus, a 2005 model-year Honda Element,
and a 2004 model-year'Mercedes 230, showed that the SS 11 Fuel Saver did not affect the
vehicle's ability to perform its OBD II monitoring functions.

provided herein to assure that the.exempted add-on or modified part continues to meet the
standards and procedures of Title 13, California Code of Regulations, Section 2222, et seq.
