Update Your Truck to a CARB-Compliant Tractor-Secure Port Entry & Statewide Emission Certification-
Fuel Efficiency Is A Reason to Upgrade Your Equipment, Starting with a Diesel Engine
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) keeps changing the requirements for statewide emission compliance to enter the Port of Los Angeles and other ports around the state with older equipment. An advanced clean truck does not have to be brand new; used equipment like a used truck can meet the California CARB certification standards for years. You can pair your choice of a heavy-duty tractor from Peterbilt or Kenworth, along with a used engine, like a Paccar MX-13. ( See Video review on MX-13 Engine) Besides regulations to enter California ports, watch for regulations from California and other states across the United States on emissions like the ones coming out of the California Air Resources Board. Be on the lookout for regulation on emission standards, idle time, or fuel consumption at the Federal and State levels, you can always just my review here.
Maybe, soon as 2023, your vehicle will not pass inspection for California registration. The California DMV is getting stricter for consumer motor vehicles and commercial vehicles of all types, from forklifts to refers. This CARB regulation might stop you from diving in the State of California. Wherever you pick up or deliver, the Environmental Protection Agency may also mandate new regulation for greenhouse gas emissions.
A newer engine and Low Rolling Resistance (LRR) tires can be part of your goal to meet the new emission standards for diesel trucks and gain diesel fuel economy. Stay on the road with a newer truck and engine. Update that older truckand non-compliant trucks. Keep ahead of regulation to stay on the highways.
Large and small fleets of heavy-duty tractors will need to meet CARB certification to get a motor vehicle registration from the California Department of Motor Vehicles (CA DMV).
Consider looking into the EPA Smartway program to help carriers and others in the supply chain prove sustainability and critical factors, such as diesel fuel efficiency. EPA Smartway provides software, tools, data, and standards — at no cost — for measuring, benchmarking, and improving environmental performance.
