(1) The full life emission test results must be below the standards, and
(2) The deterioration line must be below the standard at the minimum test distance and the useful life, or all points used to generate the line, must be below the standard.
(e) If the vehicle is unable to complete the total distance due to engine mechanical failure, certification will be granted if:
(1) The mechanical failure was anticipated, § 86.428, and
(3) The results of the half life emission tests, when adjusted by the new deterioration factors, are below the standards.
