End-of-year compliance deadlines in the California Air Resources Board’s Statewide Truck and Bus rule loom for owner-operators of 1996-2006 model-year engines, according to our sister site, Overdrive

Owner-operators and fleets upgrading their trucks this year via truck/engine-replacement or retrofit have until Monday to make their purchase to take advantage of an extension if manufacturer delivery or installation is delayed, Overdrive reported. 

The delay extension includes purchases of  engines and vehicles “originally equipped with a PM filter,” according to CARB, in addition to retrofit DPFs.
