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 and its Executive Officer to exempt add-on and modified aftermarket devices
from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156.

WHEREAS, Tadger Group International of 45 Kingspoint Circle, Stoney Creek, ON,
Canada L8E 6E6, has applied to the Air Resources Board for exemption from the
prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391 for the "Mini Diesel" and

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 that:

        fuel line in a motor vehicle. The devices' housings are made of brass and
        contain two aluminum baffles perpendicular to one another.

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

3.      The "Mini Diesel" and "Diesel" Tadgers are intended for use with a required
        motor vehicle pollution control system.

4.      The "Mini Diesel" and "Diesel" Tadgers by being installed around the fuel line
        alter the original design of a motor vehicle pollution control system.

5.      The "Mini Diesel" and "Diesel" Tadgers are devices subject to the prohibitions of
        Vehicle Code Section 27156 and add-on parts as defined by Title 13, CCR,

6.     The "Mini Diesel" and "Diesel" Tadgers do not reduce the effectiveness of any
       required motor vehicle pollution control system.

7.     The Air Resources Board, in exercising technical judgment, is aware of no basis
       on which the "Mini Diesel" and "Diesel" Tadgers will provide either a decrease in
       emissions or an increase in fuel economy.

8.     The Air Resources Board has not determined what effect the use of the "Mini
       Diesel" and "Diesel" Tadgers may have on any warranty; either expressed or
       implied, by the manufacturer of a motor vehicle on which the device is installed.

9.     The "Mini Diesel" and "Diesel" Tadgers are not certified motor vehicle pollution
       control devices pursuant to Health and Safety Code Section 43644.

10.    The Air Resources Board by granting an exemption to Tadger Group
       International for the "Mini Diesel" and "Diesel" Tadgers does not recommend or
       endorse in any way the "Mini Diesel" and "Diesel" Tadgers for emissions
       reduction, fuel economy, or any other purpose.

the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on 2007 model year and

       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 "Mini Diesel"
       and "Diesel" Tadgers as an individual device.

3.     Any oral or written references to this Executive Order or its content by Tadger
       Group International, its principals, agents, employees, distl-ibutors, dealers, or
