                               EXECUTIVE ORDER D-753

                             Relating to Exemptions under
                           Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code

                               UltraCarz International, Inc.
                                   Series26a Dual Cell

  The hydrogen generator device described herein does not qualify as a potential
compliance option for the California Air Resources Board's in-use diesel fleet rules.

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-14-012;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That installation of the Series26a Dual Cell device,
manufactured by UltraCarz International, Inc. (330 East Warm Springs Road , Suite 69 ,
Las Vegas, Nevada 89119), has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the
applicable vehicle pollution control systems, and therefore, the Series26a Dual Cell
device is exempt from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for all
1960-2009 model year light/medium/heavy heavy-duty on-road diesel engines between
11 .9 liters to 15.6 liters.

The Series26a Dual Cell device consists of a 1-gallon water reservoir, a dual cell
electrolysis generator, various electrical components, electrical wiring and connectors,
an electrolyte, and plastic supply hose for the hydrogen gas.

This Executive Order is based on emission test results using Heavy-Duty Federal Test
Procedure Transient Cycle test, Euro Ill European Stationary Cycle test, and
"Not-to-Exceed" test submitted by UltraCarz International, Inc. with the
Series26a Dual Cell device.

If evidence provides the Air Resources Board with reasons to suspect that the
Series26a Dual Cell device will affect the durability of the emission control system,
UltraCarz International, Inc. shall be requ ired to submit durability data to show that the
durability of the vehicle emission control system is not, in fact, affected and/or that the
add-on or modified parts demonstrate adequate durability.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the Series26a
Dual Cell 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 Series26a Dual Cell 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.


                                             3.


Marketing of the Series26a Dual Cell 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 Series26a Dual Cell 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 Series26a Dual Cell 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
Series26a Dual Cell 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 ULTRACARZ
INTERNATIONAL, INC.‘S SERIES26A DUAL CELL 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.

                                     EVALUATION SUMMARY

Manufacturer Name: UltraCarz International, Inc.

Name of Device: Series26a Dual Cell

Background:
       UltraCarz International, Inc. of 330 East Warm Springs Road, Suite 69 , Las
Vegas, Nevada 89119 has applied for exemption from the prohibitions in Section 27156
of the California Vehicle Code for its Series26a Dual Cell device. The device is
designed for all 1960-2009 model year (MY) light/medium/heavy heavy-duty on-road
diesel engines between 11.9 liters to 15.6 liters.

Recommendation:
      Grant exemption to UltraCarz International, Inc. as requested and issue
Executive Order D-753.

Device Description:
        The Series26a Dual Cell device produces hydrogen through an electrolysis
process by supplying water from a reservoir containing distilled water and an activator
(food grade phosphoric acid and acetic acid mixture) to electrolysis dry cells containing
stainless steel plates that are supplied electricity from the vehicle's battery. The device
consists of a 1-gallon water reservoir, a dual cell electrolysis generator (which contain
the positive, negative, and neutral metal plates), various electrical components,
electrical wiring and connectors, and reinforced PVC supply hose for the hydrogen gas.
The device has a primary circuit (which powers the electrolysis generator) and a
secondary circuit (which controls the primary circuit through the ignition switch) so that
hydrogen gas is only produced when the engine is operating.

Discussion/Basis for the Recommendation :
      This exemption is based on the following emission tests conducted on two
heavy-duty diesel engines with UltraCarz International, Inc.'s Series26a Dual Cell
device installed:
       1.   FTP transient cycle test on a 1999 MY Mack E7 Series 11 .9 liter diesel
            engine.
      2. FTP transient cycle, Euro Ill ESC 13-mode steady-state, and NTE tests on a
            2007 MY Caterpillar C 15 Series 15.1 liter diesel engine.
The emission test results are shown below:

        2. All testing was conducted at Olson-Ecol ogic Engine Testing Laboratories in
           Fullerton , California

 FTP transient cycle testing on the 1999 MY Mack E7 Series engine and 2007 MY
 Caterpillar C15 Series engine modified with the Series26a Dual Cell device did not
 cause emissions to exceed baseline by more than the allowed limits of 10 percent for


                                           3

HC, NMHC, and NOx and 15 percent on CO and PM which is acceptable for exemption.
Euro Ill ESC and NTE emission testing on the 2007 MY Caterpillar C15 Series engine
modified with the Series26a Dual Cell device showed that the modified engine met the
exhaust emission standards. Similar results are expected when UltraCarz International ,
Inc.'s Series26a Dual Cell device is used on the 1960-2009 MY light/medium/heavy
heavy-duty on-road diesel engines between 11 .9 liters to 15.6 liters as stated in this
application.
