40 CFR 86.130-00 - Test sequence; general requirements.
Applicability.Section 86.130-96 (a) through (d) is applicable to vehicles tested for the FTP test. Paragraph (e) of this section is applicable to vehicles tested for the SFTP supplemental tests of air conditioning (SC03) and aggressive driving (US06). Paragraph (f) of this section is applicable to all emission testing. Section 86.130-00 includes text that specifies requirements that differ from § 86.130-96. Where a paragraph in § 86.130-96 is identical and applicable to § 86.130-00, this may be indicated by specifying the corresponding paragraph and the statement “[Reserved]. For guidance see § 86.130-96.”
(a) -(d) [Reserved]. For guidance see § 86.130-96.
(e) The supplemental tests for exhaust emissions related to aggressive driving (US06) and air conditioning (SC03) use are conducted as stand-alone tests as described in §§ 86.158-00, 86.159-00, and 86.160-00. These tests may be performed in any sequence that maintains the appropriate preconditioning requirements for these tests as specified in § 86.132-00.
(f) If tests are invalidated after collection of emission data from previous test segments, the test may be repeated to collect only those data points needed to complete emission measurements. Compliance with emission standards may be determined by combining emission measurements from different test runs. If any emission measurements are repeated, the new measurements supersede previous values.
