(i) In-use exhaust emissions from 1998 and later model year light-duty vehicles shall meet all standards in tables H98-1 and H98-2 in the rows designated with the applicable fuel type.
|1 The applicable useful life is 5 years or 50,000 miles, whichever first occurs.|
|1 The applicable useful life is 10 years or 100,000 miles, whichever first occurs, except that no enforcement testing will be done beyond 7 years or 75,000 miles, whichever first occurs.|

(B) A manufacturer cannot use one set of engine families to meet its in-use intermediate useful life standards and another to meet its in-use full useful life standards. The same families which are used to meet the intermediate useful life standards will be required without deviation to meet the corresponding full useful life standards.

The test weight basis for light-duty vehicles, for the purposes of determining equivalent test weight as prescribed in § 86.129-94, shall be loaded vehicle weight.
(3) The standards set forth in paragraph (a)(1)(iii) of this section refer to the exhaust emitted during the CST as set forth in subpart O of this part and measured and calculated in accordance with those provisions.
