Lighter Vehicle Requirements
If any of your vehicles are lighter duty (14,000 - 26,000 lbs. GVWR), below
are the requirements:
• CARB reporting is not necessary. Record-keeping
• The deadline to retrofit with a particulate filter has passed as of 1/1/2014.
• Lighter duty vehicles must be replaced with
a 2010 model year engine as follows:
|Engine Model Year
||Replace with 2010
|1995 & older
||By January 1, 2015
||By January 1, 2016
||By January 1, 2017
||By January 1, 2018
||By January 1, 2019
||By January 1, 2020
||By January 1, 2021
||By January 1, 2023
filter retrofits cannot be used to comply with this option;
however, owners that installed a PM filter retrofit on a lighter truck by January 1, 2014 and reported by January 31, 2014 can
continue to operate the vehicle until January 1, 2023.
Identifying Lighter Vehicles
Identify your lighter vehicles by looking at the GVWR. This rating is usually on your truck's door. See example.
The weight use for this regulation is not the registered weight rating or the gross combined weight rating only the Gross Vehicle Weigt Rating may be used.
