                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D-634

                             Relating to Exemptions under
                           Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code

                                     H2XOP, Inc.
                               Hydrogen lnjection Device

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board by Section 27156 of the
Vehicle Code; and

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Sections 39515 and 39516 of the
Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G-02-003;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That installation of the Hydrogen Injection Device,
manufactured by H2XOP, Inc. (17211 Valley View Ave., Cerritos, California 90703), has
been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle pollution control
systems, and therefore, the Hydrogen Injection Device (HES 210) is exempt from the
prohibitions in Section 27 156 of the Vehicle Code for installation on 1984-2004 model
year Caterpillar, Cummins, Detroit Diesel, and International heavy-duty diesel engines
from 7.2 liters to 16.2 liters.

The HES 21Obdevice consists of a metal case containing a 3-gallon ABS water
reservoir, various electrical components, electrical wiring and connectors, and a rubber
supply hose for the hydrogen gas.

This Executive Order is based on Heavy-Duty Federal Test Procedure (FTP) Transient
Cycle tests, Euro Ill European Stationary Cycle (ESC) test, and "Not-to-Exceed" (NTE)
test conducted by H2XOP, Inc. with the HES 210 device.

If evidence provides the Air Resources Board with reasons to suspect that the HES 210
device will affect the durability of the emission control system, H2XOP shall be required
to submit durability data to show that the durabilityd the vehicle emission control
system is not, in fact, affected andlor that the add-on or modified parts demonstrate
adequate durability.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the HES 210
device do not recommend tuning the vehicles to specifications different from those of
the vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the HES 210 device, as exempt
by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicle's
emission control system, shall invalidate this Executive Order.


Marketing of the HES 210 device using identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or for an application other than that listed in this Executive-Order shall
be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.

Exemption of the HES 210 device shall not be construed as exemption to sell, offer for           -

sale, or advertise any component of the kit as an individual device. -



This Executive Order shall not apply to any HES 210 device advertised, offered for sale,
sold with, or installed on a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an
ultimate purchaser.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the
HES 21 0 device may have on any wdrtanty either expressed or implied by the vehicle
manufacturer.

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.

In addition to the foregoing, the Air Resources Board reserves the-right in the future to    -       -   -


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

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION,
ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE
AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING
ANTI-POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF HZXOP, INC.'S
HES 210 DEVICE.

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this Executive
Order. The Executive Order may be revoked only after a ten day written notice of
intention to revoke the Executive Order, in which period the holder of the Executive
Order may request in writing a hearing to contest the proposed revocation. If a hearing
is requested, it shall be held within ten days of receipt of the request, and the Executive
Order may not be revoked until a determination is made after the hearing that grounds
for revocation exist.

                                          EVALUA'TION SUMMARY

Manufacturer Name: HZXOP, Inc.

Name of Device: Hydrogen Generator Device (HES 210)

Background:
        H2XOP, Inc. of 17211 Valley View Ave., Cerritos, California 90703 has applied for
exemption from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the Califorr~iaVehicle Code for its HES 210
device. The device are designed for use on 1984-2004 model year (MY) Caterpillar, Cummins,
Detroit Diesel, and International heavy-duty diesel engines between 7.2 liters and 16.2 liters.

Recommendation:
     Grant exemption to H2XOP as requested and issue Executive Order D-634.

Device Description:
 -      The HES 210 device produces hydrogen through an electrolysis process by supplying
electricity from the vehicle's battery to stainless steel metal plates submerged in a reservoir
containing distilled water and an activator (potassium hydroxide). The device consists of a
metal case containing a 3-gallon ABS water reservoir (which contains the metal plates), a
solid-state solenoid and circuit breaker, electrical wiring and connectors, and a rubber supply
hose for the hydrogen gas.

 DiscussionlBasis for the Recommendation:
        This exemption is based on the following emission tests conducted on two heavy-duty
diesel engines with H2XOP's HES 210 device installed:
        1.    FTP transient cycle test on a 1991 MY Detroit Diesel Series 60 1 12.7 liter diesel
              engine.
        2.    FTP transient cycle, Euro Ill ESC 13-mode steady-state, and NTE tests on a 2000
              MY Cummins ISM 10.8 liter diesel engine.
