  • (2) Evaporative emission credits, expressed in units of vehicle-grams per mile, shall be calculated using the following formula, rounding the result to the nearest whole number:

    (A – B) × C

    where

    A
    is the fleet average evaporative emission standard;
    B
    is the average evaporative emission value in respect of the fleet; and
    C
    is the total number of vehicles in the fleet.
  • (3) The evaporative emission credits for a specific model year are credited on the last day of the model year in question.
