                               EXECUTIVE ORDER D-669

                             Relating to Exemptions under
                           Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code

                              Green Fuel Laboratory, Inc.
                          GFL 110 Hydrogen Generator System

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 GFL 110 Hydrogen
Generator System, manufactured by Green Fuel Laboratory, Inc. (8938 Monte Vista
Ave., Montclair, California 91763), has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the
applicable vehicle pollution control systems, and therefore, the GFL 110 Hydrogen
Generator System (GFL-110) is exempt from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the
Vehicle Code for installation on 1910-2009 model year passenger cars and
lightlmedium-dutyvehicles, up to 14,000 pounds Gross Vehicle Weight Rating,
equipped with gasoline or diesel engines with an engine displacement up to 8.2 liters.

The GFL 110 device consists of a polypropylene water reservoir, stainless steel
electrode tubes, various electrical components, electrical wiring and connectors, and
polyethylene supply tubing for the hydrogen gas.

This Executive Order is based on Cold-Start CVS-75 Federal Test Procedure tests,
Supplemental Federal Test Procedure tests, and On-Board Diagnostic II System tests
conducted by Green Fuel Laboratory, Inc. with the GFL 110 Hydrogen Generator
System.

If evidence provides the Air Resources Board with reasons to suspect that the GFL 110
device will affect the durability of the emission control system, Green Fuel Laboratory,
Inc. shall be required to submit durability data to show that the durability of 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 GFL 110
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 GFL 110 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 GFL 110 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 GFL 110 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 GFL 110 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
GFL 110 device may have on any warranty 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 GREEN FUEL
LABORATORY, INC.'S GFL 110 HYDROGEN GENERATOR SYSTEM.

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.

Executed at El Monte, California, this     20day of October 2009.

                                    EVALUATION SUMMARY

Manufacturer Name: Green Fuel Laboratory, Inc.

Name of Device: GFL 110 Hydrogen Generator System

Background:
       Green Fuel Laboratory, Inc. of 8938 Monte Vista Ave., Montclair, California 91763 has
applied for exemption from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the California Vehicle Code for
its GFL 110 Hydrogen Generator System (GFL 110). The device is designed for use on
1910-2009 model year (MY) passenger cars and lightlmedium-duty vehicles, up to 14,000
pounds Gross Vehicle Weight Rating, equipped with gasoline or diesel engines with an engine
displacement up to 8.2 liters.

Recommendation:
       Grant exemption to Green Fuel Laboratory, Inc. as requested and issue Executive Order
D-669.

Device Description:
         The GFL 110 device produces hydrogen through an electrolysis process by supplying
electricity from the vehicle's battery to stainless steel tubes submerged in a reservoir containing
distilled water. The device is connected to the vehicle's battery through an Electronics Box so
that hydrogen gas is only produced when the engine is operating. The device consists of a
polypropylene water reservoir (which contains the stainless steel tubes), an Electronics Box,
electrical wiring and connectors, and polyethylene supply hoses for the hydrogen gas.

Discussion/Basis for the Recommendation:
       This exemption is based on: FTP, SFTP, and OBD II System tests conducted on a 2008
model year 1.8 liter Honda Civic LX coupe LEV II ULEV, a 2009 model year 3.6 liter Cadillac
CTS LEV II LEV, and a 2008 model year 5.7 liter Dodge Ram 3500 truck LEV II LEV to evaluate
the impact of the GFL 110 Hydrogen Generator System on emissions. Testing was conducted
on these vehicles modified with Green Fuel Laboratory, Inc.'s GFL 110 device. Results are
shown below:

Notes:

1. Honda Civic coupe test vehicle - Test group 8HNXV01.8LKR (LEV II ULEV); evaporative family
  8HNXR0106BBY (LEV II evap.); odometer reading 25,589 miles.
  Cadillac CTS test vehicle - Test group 9GMXV03.6053 (LEV II LEV); evaporative family
  9GMXR0133810 (LEV II evap.); odometer reading 9,366 miles.
  Dodge Ram 3500 test vehicle - Test group 8CRXK05.7TXO (LEV II LEV); evaporative family
  8CRXE0283GWH (LEV II evap.); odometer reading 5,125 miles.
2. Tes,ting laboratory - Automotive Testing and Development Services, Inc. (ATDS) in Ontario, California.
3. Honda Civic OBD II System Results - One additional drive sequence was required to su~cessfully
  complete EVAP monitor testing.
4. Cadillac CTS OBD II System Results - A GM EVAP Service Bay Procedure was required to
  successfully complete EVAP monitor testing.


FTP and SFTP emission results showed that the niodified vehicles meet the exhaust emission
standards. Testing also showed that the modification does not have any adverse impact on the
vehicle's OBD II System. Similar results are expected when Green Fuel Laboratory, I n c h
GFL 110 Hydrogen Generator System is used on the 1910-2009 model year passenger cars
listed in this application.
