Hi Bob, I saw Vince. I was holding off on those Certs because you warned me the fees weren't recorded 
yet. I looked and they are in the system now so I'm reviewing the requests now.

Subject: VW Group: Another Cert Request 


Hello Jim, 


Welcome to the New Year! I hope your shoulder is OK. 


I just submitted another model year 2012 certificate request-Test Group CADXJ02.03UA. The cert fees 
for this one have been paid for a while already.

Richard, 

You should have received an automated email a few days ago saying that ERA had received payment for 
the Subject families at $33,974 each. When we received the forms we charged them against the ACH 
payment for $69,992 received from VW on 12/17/2010. (The forms for the remainder of that payment 
were filed from Germany). All that appears to be in order. 

However, we noticed that the applications for these two families were filed in Calendar Year 2010. The 
fee is determined by the calendar year of the application (as stated at the top of the form), which, for 
applications received in calendar 2010, is $34,849. Consequently, these two families have been 
designated as Short, On Hold, until the $875 each has been received, upon which they will be listed as 
paid and cleared for certification review. 

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi Jim, 


When I originally asked you to delay issue of the certificates for the two test groups until 2011,1 thought 
that the cert fees were based on the issue date of the certificate. 

Due to this situation, I now understand that they are based on the application submission date. Had I 
known this earlier, I would have waited to submit the applications. 


Best regards.

Hello Bill; 

Please find the Miscellaneous Payment Due forms for the two Volkswagen 
Test Groups where they were submitted during calendar year 2010 (last 
week in 2010) for which we paid the 2011 calendar year fee. It was 
originally anticipated that these two test groups would be submitted in 
calendar year 2011, not 2010. The payment of $1,750 for these two test 
groups was electronically paid today. 

We respectfully request that the work continue for the issuance of the 
Certificates of Conformity for these two test groups.

Hello Lynn, 

Thank you for keeping me updated. 

I have received you questions concerning our 3.11 confirmatory programs. 
We are now working to get the answers to you. 

The problem is, that our factory is shut down till January, 10th and 
most of the people are already on vacation. 

My colleges will start working on the questions as soon as everybody is 
back in the office. 

So 1 hope it is sufficient for you, that you will get the answers during 
the first half of January. 

I will be back in Michigan at January 3rd and try to get everything done 
as soon as possible. 

Thank you very much. 

Best regards.

Hi, Sebastian. 

I mentioned in my last e-mail that we were suspending confirmatory 
testing at this time and wanted to focus on how the change in fueling 
affected the emissions. Given that 4 out of 5 of the surveillance Audi 
A6 in-use vehicles failed emissions before revising the fuel drain 
procedure and none of the confirmatory vehicles failed after using the 
revised drain procedure that avoids altering the fuel factor, we would 
like to better understand how It works. 

We would like an explanation of this fuel feature. When is it 
active? What triggers it? What does the feature affect or adjust? 

What are the inputs and outputs? What do you call this feature? The 
answers to these questions will help us assess the results of the 
surveillance and confirmatory tests. 

Please try to get the answers to us by the first week In January. 
However, if that is not possible, please let me know when you expect to 
get the answers to us. 

Thanks you!

Richard, 

Attached are Excel Spreadsheet(s) with the data that I sent to DOE on Jan 19, 2011 to update 
www.fueleconomy.gov (except that any model types highlighted in green filler were not sent to DOE). 
DOE anticipates updating the web the week of Jan 24th. 

The attached spreadsheet(s) contain all the 2011 FE label data from EPA's Verify data base as of January 
10, 2010. Please review the spreadsheet(s) and confirm for your records that the data are correct. Any 
corrections should be made directly in the EPA Verify database. 

If there are any model types highlighted in green filler in the attached spreadsheet(s)—please correct the 
data in Verify and let me know that the corrections have been made (so I can forward the data to DOE for 
web posting). 

As usual, please let me know if you find any other problems or errors in the data. 

Thanks

Hello Jim, 

I have submitted the necessary fuel economy retests and Applications for the 2012 Audi test group 
CADXV03.03UF. You will also find submitted Certificate Requests for the two related EVAP groups. 

This is a carryover test group with the addition of a new model, Audi A7 quattro, and EVAP family 
CADXR0140C7A. Note, the CSI sheet that Verify generated for this new EVAP family is not in the usua 
test order somehow. 

Please let me know if you see something that needs attention. 


Best regards.

Hi Jim, 

Just for clarification, in the Certificate Request for the new EVAP family CADXR0140C7AI indicated that 
the ORVR had not been EPA approved. In fact, it was previously reviewed and approved for the 2011 Audi 
AS EVAP family BADXR0155D4Q as noted in the ORVR Safety Application in Section 15 of the Certification 
Application. Please Let me know if I need to revise the Certificate request. 

Thanks,

Hi Jim, 

Thanks for your help in denying the previous certificate requests this morning. 1 have resubmitted the 
two requests and the revised Applications for Audi test group CADXV03.03UF, EVAP families 
CADXR014088Qand CADXR0140C7A. 

The CSI for EVAP family CADXR0140C7A was revised to reflect corrected dyno coefficients.

Recent Submission RE: SCR and AECD 


Hello Jim: 


Just a heads-up. I have submitted a document through VERIFY that is a request for approval of a diesel 
SCR system and description of AECDs. This document applies to the 2.0LTD1 diesel that will be in the new 
Passat for 2012MY. You may recall that the 2,0LTDI in the Golf/Jetta uses a NOx storage catalyst (w/o 
SCR) and the 3.0L V6 TDI in the VW Touareg and Audi Q7, uses SCR. So, this is our first 2.0LTDI using an 
SCR system. 


Please let me know if there are any questions. We will have some folks from Germany in the US next 
week if we need to discuss this topic. 


Best regards, 



Volkswagen Group of America, Inc.

Dear Mr. Reineke, 

The Environmental Protection Agency will test a 2005 model-year Volkswagen test- 
group in our surveillance test-program. The group shown in Enclosure 1 will be tested at the 
National Vehicle and Fuel Emissions Laboratory in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Test results which 
exceed applicable standards may lead to confirmatory testing. 

A sample of two or more vehicles will be procured. Maintenance will consist of an under¬ 
hood inspection and review of on-board computer codes. The federal test procedure and 
highway cycle will follow a single LA-4 preconditioning cycle. If this test-group contains 
models which are equipped with 4WD or AWD, the vehicles may be tested in either of these 
modes. 


One vehicle may be subjected to evaporative testing and a US06 is usually run per elass. 
Additionally, fault conditions may be introduced on one or more of the vehicles to test the 
response of the On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) system. If you are aware of OBD enabling criteria 
which would limit our ability to evaluate these systems, please inform me. Copies of the OBD 
enabling criteria which were approved during certification should be provided if there are such 
limitations. 

We invite your representatives to be present as observers during the test program. If you 
have any questions concerning this investigation please contact me. 

Sincerely,

Hi Jim, 

We submitted today two Decision Information data sets for test group CVWXV02.03PA. These are related 
to a forthcoming Running Change to add the Jetta model to this existing Bin 3/ SULEV (PZEV) test group. 

No new technology is included with this model. The manual transmission configuration does require a 
HWY retest do to high fuel economy for the ETW.

There is one item I need to clarify - the running change that will be submitted is because of the addition 
of a new carline (Beetle). I just wanted to clarify that detail since the Jetta GLl will remain in the Jetta 
carline as a carryover. I had misunderstood this Friday when we talked.

Evaluation for Exhaust Emission Adjustment Factors 

Dear Mr. Wehrly and! Ex. 7 | 

Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (“Volkswagen") herewith submits for your review, a 
request for approval of an engineering evaluation for the development of exhaust 
emission adjustment factors. These adjustment factors would apply for certification and 
OBD demonstration for the 2.0L Turbocharged Direct Injection (TDI) Common Rail Diesel 

(Test Group: CVWXV02.0U4S}.^ 


This vehicle concept represented by tliis test group employs a diesel particulate filter 

(DPF) that experiences periodic regeneration. As such, adjustment factors have been 
determined to account for the regeneration of the DPF, if such an event does not occur 
during the course of an emission test (upward adjustment factor, or UAF) and when the 
regeneration of the DPF occurs during an emission test (dovmward adjustment factor, or 
OAF), 

We look forward to your response.

The information regarding SCR is prepared and submitted in accordance with the 

provisions of United States Environmental Protection Agency Guidance Document CISD-

Q7 models, equipped with the 3.0L TDl diesel engine, have been certified with an SCR 
emission control system. The basic function, including the driver inducement strategy, for 
this 2.0L TD! application, parallels the previously-approved system. 

In addition to the SCR description, Volkswagen is providing for your review, preliminary 
pages from the application for ceriification of the subject test group, which identify and 
describe AECDs, including emission increasing AECDs (EI-AECD).

Mike, I have looked at the application some more. Looks in order overall but 1 don't recall noticing 
before the continued use of the config with 5th and 6th cats in the previous Part 1. For clarification, can 
you find out what is the difference between the L539 and L539A -besides the cats? Are they planning to 
even build the L539? Or maybe they built a few before the running change? 

The emissions data in the part 1 and the cert application were run at the end of 2010 (except a test dated 
1/12/2010, a typo?) but the Config lists the "1539" engine. See if you can find out if the data is from the 
L539 or L539A. It should be worst case emissions. 

I'll be back monday.

2) New catalyst configuration (there will now be both 4 and 6 catalysts configurations). 

Thanks for your help, please call me if you have any questions. 

Thanks, 

Mike

2.0LTDI - Volkswagen Requests for Approve 


Hello Jim and 


Ex. 7 


Just a heads-up. I have submitted a request for approval of the upward and downward DPF regeneration 
adjustment factors for the 2012 model year 2.0LTDI test group CVWXV02.0U4S. The request was submitted to 
EPA and ARB through VERIFY and DMS respectively. These factors are determined as we have done so in the past 
for our DPF-equipped diesels. 


Your attention to this matter would be appreciated. I would also appreciate an update on the status of the review 
of the SCR/AECD submittal for this test group. 

Best regards, 



Volkswagen Group of America, Inc.

Hello Lynn, 
hello Bernd, 

Attached you will find the updated parameter sheet for In-use vehicle P121RXX-0014 (2005 VW Touareg). 
I added the set coefficients for you. 

«ln-Use Parameters Form_P121RXX-0014_V2.pdf» 

I also have attached our proposal for a procedure to adapt the car after the fault code erase. 

«Touareg adaptation procedure surveillance.pdf» 

If possible we would like to assist during the procedure. 

Another open point was the tires on the vehicle. VW has no concerns about the tires for emissions tests 
only, as far as EPA has no safety concerns about off road tires on dynos. 

The tires are within the specs for that car, but were not used for certification and fuel economy tests. 

In this case the tires on the vehicle are alright for an in-use test. 

Please let me know if you have any questions. 

Thank you very much.

Hello Jim, 


Yesterday we submitted a revised application and running change for test group CVWXV02.5259. This 
running change is for the following; 


1) A name change to replace New Midsized Sedan (NMS) with Passat for evaporative family 
CVWXR0125P46 

2) Add model Beetle to the test group for evaporative family CVWXR0110237. 


Revised EPA certificates are needed. We submitted new certification requests this morning in Verify. 


Please let me know if you need any other information on your end to proceed. 


Thanks, 

Mike

Hello Jim and Arvon: 


I am available between 11 AM and 3 PM today. Do you have specific questions regarding he Lamborghini 
submission? If so I can try to tie in the Lamborghini folks. You may recall that they volunteered to have a 
conference call. 


Regarding the durability procedures used for MY 2011 and 2012, there are charts in Section 4 of the 
Common Section that identify the durability procedure used for each test group. For these model years, 
the general breakdown is essentially the same and is described below: 


1. The majority of the test groups use the Volkswagen Alternate Durability Procedure (VWADP), which 
is a whole-vehicle, accelerated durability procedure that has been used for a number of years. 

2. The Diesel test groups (2.0LTD1 and 3.0LTD1), use the Standard Road Cycle. 

3. EPA assigned DFs are use for three limited production concepts; namely the Bentley 63/4L 
Mulsanne, the Lamborghini V-12 Aventador, and the Bugatti. 


Lamborghini is requesting approval of a bench cycle for use with a forthcoming 2012 test group. 


At one point, we presented a Volkswagen Bench Cycle; however, this procedure is not used at the 
moment. There Is a reference to this procedure in the Lamborghini Bench Cycle request, for comparison 
purposes. In addition, we have presented a Bench Cycle for diesels, but again, we are not there yet. 


If you would like a list summarizing the application of the procedures, please let me know. 


Best regards.

Hi Jim, 

I submitted tests and decision information for the new 2012 Audi test group CADXV02.53UK. This is for a 
performance variant of the Audi TT with 360 horsepower. There is no new technology involved, however, 
it represents the first combination of exist (VW) 5-cylinder in-line engine with all-wheel drive and direct

ABT Report Template 1 5 2Q11xi$x

Richard, 

Here's the new AB&T template—although Mitsubishi found an error in the new template . As we 
discussed today, detailed fleet average calculations (using the template) are not needed if all of the 
manufacturer's vehicles are certified at or below the fleet average NOx standard—and the mfr doesn't 
want to bank credits, etc. See 86.1860-04(c)(2) and 86.1862-04(b)(2). 

Ted Trimble is the ERA lead on AB&T issues—so please work with him if the template needs corrections. 

Mitsubishi found the following error In the new template: "In the "current MY credit calculation" tab, 
when we enter "150k" useful life in column F, and "NO" in column G, we still get a incorrect value of 0.85 
in column L. The correct value in column L should be 1. Any advise or fix?" 

There may be other errors. I'm not sure if any manufacturers have sent their AB&T calculations to ERA 
using the revised template or not—Ted might know.

For 2010 and beyond, Mary's group has reworked the template for recording ABT reports. The old 
template did not accept a letter as the first character in the engine family, the new one does.

Hello Lynn, 

Thank you very much for the information. 

We certified the MY2005 Touareg test group 5VWXT03.2225 as a LEVII/LEV Bin5 testgroup.

For SFTP we have the following standards; 

NMHC + NOx Composite: 1.41 g/mi (0.35*FTP result + 0.28*US06 result + 0.37* SC03 result) 
CO; 19.3 g/mi 

As far as I reviewed the results from In-use vehicle P121-0064, it passed quite good. 

Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Thursdays ago. 


ril have to make sure my replacements are using an application checklist to make sure they get it right the 
first time. 


Sorry for the confusion.

Notwithstanding, ERA had not received this form on April 7 or any other date. 

ERA has one unobligated ACH payment from Volkswagen, processed on April 15, for $135,896 = 4 x 
$33,974 LDV certification fees. 1 will take this family out of that payment. We have not received forms

Richard, 


Attached are Excel Spreadsheets for each manufacturer which you are handling. 

The spreadsheet(s) are encrypted & password protected. I'll call you with the password—or you can call 
me at 734-214-4450 to get the password. 

The spreadsheet(s) contain all the 2012 FE label data from EPA's Verify data base as of April 26, 2011. 
Please review the attached data for errors (including my comments in the first column) and make the 
appropriate corrections in Verify. Please double check any new FE Labels which you input Into Verify (not 
listed in this spreadsheet) to make sure they are error free. Any corrections should be made directly in 
the EPA Verify database. [Do not correct the spreadsheet and send it back.] I am forwarding the schedule 
for the May, 2011 release and some "reminders" for your convenience. 

The models highlighted in green fill (if any) contain errors and will not be sent to DOE for web posting 
unless the errors are corrected. 

The last date to make changes for the web posting is May 11, 2011. EPA will review the data on May 12 
and forward it to DOE on (or before) May 18 for posting on the web on May 23, 2011. 

Please let me know when you have made all corrections, entered any new labels into Verify and 
everything is "good to go." 

Thanks

Since EPA's contractor will be deploying Verify Release 3 changes on May 13, 2011, the revised schedule will make 
it easier for manufacturers to enter data and make corrections to Verify. It will also make It easier for EPA review 
the 2012 FE Guide data in Verify. The new schedule makes the following changes: 

The last day for manufacturers to make corrections will now by May 11 (instead of May 16); 

EPA will perform the FE Guide Verify query (for EPA review) on May 12 (instead of May 17). 

The revised schedule Is as follows; 


Date 

Apr 26 (Tues) 
Apr 27 (Wed) 
DOE 

Apr 28-May 11 
May 11 (Wed) 
May 12 (Thur) 
May 18 (Wed) 
May 23 (Mon) 


Action 

EPA Verify staff performs 2012 FE Guide Verify query (separated by mfr, etc) for EPA review 
EPA sends FE Guide data to manufacturers for review & corrections; also sends prelim data to 

Mfrs review & make corrections 

Last day for manufacturers to make corrections and add new data 
EPA Verify staff performs 2012 FE Guide Verify query for EPA review 
EPA sends final data to DOE

Reminders; 

FE Labels with errors won't be posted on the web: FE Labels with errors (which are not corrected in EPA's Verify 
data base by May 11, 2011) will not be sent to DOE for posting on www.fueleconomy.gov. For example, FE Labels 
will not be sent to DOE for posting on www.fueleconomy.gov. if they contain errors in the unadjusted combined 
fuel economy value; errors in the adjusted city, highway or combined fuel economy value; missing interior 
volume/cargo volume information (required for passenger cars only—except not required for 2-seater vehicles); 
duplicate entries, etc. 

Release date for 2011 Labels; Please be sure that the release date is correct in EPA's Verify data base. For the May 
release, we will post FE Labels on the web which have a release date of May 23, 2011 and earlier. 

2WD SUV Classification; As outlined on page 6 of EPA guidance letter ClSD-10-14, Aug 5, 2010, when labeling 2WD 
SUVs, please continue to use the same vehicle classification category as in past model years (even though 2WD 
SUVs equal to or less than 6000 lbs GVWR will be included in 2011 and 2012 passenger car CAFEs). Similar to EPA 
policy for 2011 model year vehicles, EPA will require 2012 and later model year 2WD SUVs to continue to be 
included in the 2WD SUV comparable class for fuel economy labeling purposes, based on the provisions of 40 CFR 
600.315-08(a)(l) and 600.315-08(a)(2) as revised in 74 FR 61537, November 25, 2009. 

Fuel Costs; New 2012 fuel costs will be provided to manufacturers in a future EPA guidance letter. Until the 2012 
model year fuel costs are provided, manufacturers should continue to use the 2011 model year fuel costs provided 
in EPA guidance letter CISD-10-14. Please contact Bob Peavyhouse (734-214-4814 or by email) or me if you need a 
fuel cost for LPG or Hydrogen. 

Range of comparable vehicles; Until the 2012 ranges (for the various classes of vehicles) are provided in a future 
EPA guidance letter, manufacturers should continue to use the 2011 model year ranges provided in ClSD-10-19, 
Sept 13, 2010 (except if a model exceeds the 2011 range values, the manufacturer should extend the range 
appropriately); ref 40 CFR 600.306-08(b)(l).

Hello Bob; 


I understand that Davei Ex. 6 ithis week, however he said that you may be able to process the 

L_! 

query program so that any fixes I did and any new labels would be added to the first edition of the web 
site fuel economy guide. 


After Dave's report from late Friday, I fixed problems with model index VWX026, 027 and 028 this 
morning and added new Volkswagen indexes VWX022, 023, 024, 025, 44, 45, 46 and two Audi indexes 
ADX040and041. 


If you have any questions, or if I should direct this to someone else, please ca

Sebastian.berenz@vwxom 


Hello Mr. Ba 


Like recently discussed, 1 have problems to find one specific car out of one of our test groups in the high 
mileage program for MY2006 with the right mileage requirement. 


Test group: 

6ADXV04. 

Emission standard: 

LEV 1 - LEV 

Engine: 

4.2L/V8 

Carlines: 

Audi 54/ 

A8L/Audi S4 Cabriolet 


Sold cars for test group: 

10175 


2345 

/ InT2 - Bin 9 
335 hp 

54 Avant/Audi A6 quattro/VW Phaeton/Audi AS / 


The problem is that we have two EVAP families in this test group. One of them is for the VW Phaeton and 
we only sold 118 cars all over the US. 

The only car that I can find has 42.000 mi on it and the requirement is 50.000 mi. 


It would be great if you can approve this car for our program. 


If you have any questions please let me know. 
Thank you very much. 


Best regards

Hello Jim, 


The Verify Helpdesk said to inform you of this so that someone at the EPA can give them permission to 
check/correct this issue. 


When we submit either HWFET or SC03 tests to the Verify System we get the following business rule as an 
error message for the submission. 


Transaction Message Text: LD-CTD-TI-BR049a - If Test Results with Test Result/Emission Name (TI-19) 
equal to 'FE BAG 1' (Bag 1 Fuel Economy) is submitted then Test Results with Test Result/Emission Name

Both the HWFET or SC03 tests are one bag tests. The business rule is asking for the TE BAG 2' results. 
There are no BAG 2 results to submit for either of these tests. 

Based on this and some of the other problems we are having, I would have to say that someone pulled 
the trigger to launch this new module before it was fully tested. 


I would have liked to participate in the testing, but my login for the test environment was messed up and 
was not fixed by the time the testing ended.

Subject: Re: Fw: Problem with Verify that requires EPA permission to correct. 

Bob / Verify Help, 

The fuel economy results for the entire "Test” belong in a test result field named "MFR FE". Volkswagen 
has previously put them in the "FE BAG 1" results (incorrectly). Over the last year I have had Richard 
Thomas go back and resubmit several tests to move them to the "MFR FE" field. As you mentioned, this 
applies to both highway and SC03 tests. 

"FE BAG 1" should only be used in cases where there are multiple bags, so "FE BAG 1" will not be accepted 
unless "FE BAG 2" is also present. 

Likewise, "FE BAGS" will only be accepted if both "FE BAG 1" and "FE BAG2" are present, etc. 

In the case where there are multiple bags, the fuel economy for the entire "Test" should also be present 
in"MFRFE". 


To help Richard out on several occasions in the past, I have made special provisions in the fuel economy 
calculations (specific for VW) to pull the fuel economy out of that field if "MFR FE" was left blank and BAG 
2 was left blank. This was only to avoid him having to go back and resubmit all of the highway and SC03 
tests. I am trying to avoid having to do custom fixes whenever possible. Our contractor will be 
implementing the fuel economy calculations in the near future, and this business rule is intended to avoid 
them having to implement similar provisions when they perform the calculations. 

The business rule is working as intended. Please enter the "Test" fuel economy results in "MFR FE". 

Additional note; The litmus calculations are now performed by Verify. They require that "Verify 
Calculated Rounded Adjusted Fuel Economy" be calculated and stored for the FTP (75 degree), highway, 
and SC03 tests. They have always been calculated for the FTP and highway. Any SC03 test submitted 
before this deployment of the database may have to be resubmitted in order to get Verify to calculate this 
result. So you may need to resubmit some of your SC03 tests anyway. (Only the ones referenced as the 
"Official SC03 Test Number" in your test group submission)

Request for Stakeholder input - EV-HEV 18-05-11-FinaLpdf 

FYl -- You mentioned yesterday that Margo wants test procedures for EV/PHEVs. The Euro Commission is 
just starting on developing what they would like done within the World Harmonized Light-duty Test 
Procedure (WLTP) global technical regulation. Note that the WLTP is meant to be a worldwide test 
procedure - only the US as of now Is not actively participating in It's development (although Mike Olechiw 
was the Chair of the test procedure group until 6 months ago or so). But, while we're not actively 
engaged, we are attempting to follow its development and weigh-in where we think we should. To 
reiterate, the attached is a call for public input to the Commission to help them develop their proposal to 
the world harmonizing group (my point is that the end result is not a European reg that we don't care 
about, it's a world reg that we'll be pressured to recognize and accept from here to eternity). Something 
useful to us may well come out of this process, especially if we provide input and attempt to shape it. 
Also, remember that Karl heads the US delegation, so he has an interest in what this group does.

Subject: Stakeholder Input Briefing 


Dear all, 

On 11 May 2011, the kick-off meeting of the Commission study on type approval test 
procedures for electric (EV) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) took place in Brussels. 
The purpose of the Commission study is to support the revision of specific type approval 
test procedures related to emissions and the environmental utility of EV and HEV, e.g. 
criteria pollutant/COi emissions, electric consumption, electric range, battery 
charging/durability,... with a view to the ongoing work for the new WLTC and/or 
European complementary legislation. 

All further documents of the study, including the terms of reference of the study and the 
draft agenda of its kick-off meeting, are distributed via the folder "Meetings/ 110511 - 
EV-HEV test procedures" of the Circa group "New light duty test procedures...", see 
http://circa.europa.eu/Members/irc/enterprise/wltD/librarv . 

During the stakeholder kick-off meeting we concluded to opt for more time in order for 
stakeholders to provide input in two areas. 

All stakeholders (in particular but not only consumer related): 

First, regarding consumer requirements we would like to collect opinions and views on 
(environmental) utility parameters that could be standardised in type approval test 
procedures. We would like to investigate what type of information consumers would 
wish to have (e.g. effective range, electricity consumption, impact of ancillary systems 
like heater aircon, etc) and how they expect to use this information (e.g. in comparison 
conventional or other electric vehicles, to derive running costs). Where appropriate, 
please specify where a distinction should be made between different types of vehicles 
(e.g plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, range extended electric vehicles, full electric 
vehicles). 

Stakeholder input is requested before: 27 June 2011 
Automotive industry (e.g. vehicle manufacturers, suppliers): 

Second, we want to obtain the automotive industry’s opinions and views on potentially 
important technological developments (e.g. special types of hybrids) and other 
considerations, which should be considered when revising and complementing EV/HEV 
test procedures. In this context we are interested in the industry’s thoughts about 
potential technologies so that we do not exclude anything inadvertently through the test 
regime that is proposed.

In addition, we would like to know about EV/HEV related tests procedures, e.g. related 
to durability or battery parameters, industry applies on a non-regulatory basis for 
customer information and which could be a basis for respective harmonised test 
procedures at type approval. 

Stakeholder input is requested before: 14 June 2011 


It would be highly appreciated if you sent your input before the abovementioned dates to: 

□ stakeholderinput_PHEV_EV@ecorys.com and in copy to 
nikolaus.steininger@ec.europa.eu and tbarlow@trl.co.uk 

□ or through CIRCA.

verifvhelp@csc.com 


Richard, 


The attached 2012 FE Label data for the nnanufacturer(s) which you are handling were forwarded to DOE 
on May 17, 2010 for posting on the web at www.fuelecononny.gov. [Only releasable, non-confidential 
data were forwarded to DOE.] The attached spreadsheet(s) are encrypted & password protected using 
the same password which I gave you previously. 

The attached spreadsheet(s) include all 2012 FE Label data in EPA's Verify data base as of May 13, 2011 
approximately 2 hours before Verify Release 8 was deployed. Note that the attached spreadsheet(s) also 
include data which were not forwarded to DOE because the data contains errors or the release date was 
after May 24, 2010. 

Releasable data will be posted on the web this week (the week of May 16, 2011). The models highlighted 
in green fill (if any) contain errors and were not sent to DOE for web posting. If the release date was prior 
to May 24, 2011 for these models. I'll be glad to send the corrected data to DOE for web posting after the 
errors have been corrected in Verify. 

Please review the data and correct Verify if any errors still exist. Please contact me if you find any errors 
in the releasable data which was sent to DOE for web posting. 


For your convenience, here are 1) EPA's May 18, 2011 list server message (explaining how to make 
corrections to data already in Verify before the May 13, 2011 deployment of Verify Release 8); and 2) my 
FE Label "reminders" which I sent to manufacturers in previous email messages: 

EPA Verify List Server message, as sent to manufacturers on May 18, 2011: 

Updated XML schemas, XML schema change log, data requirements and business rules are now available 
on the Verify website in support of the recent Light-Duty Greenhouse Gas and Fuel Economy updates 
(Release 8). [Available at http://www.epa.gov/otaq/verify; then click on "Publications," then click on 
"Light-Duty Vehicle (LDV)."] 

If you have any questions or comments please contact the Verify Help Desk at (888) 890-1995 or via email 
at verlfyhelp@csc.com. 

As a reminder, in order to make any changes to datasets that were already in Verify prior to the Release 8 
updates, you will need to: 

1) select the "Request Database Report" in order to receive a newly formatted XML file for that dataset in 
your CDX in-box; 

2) save that XML file on your workstation; 

3) select the "Open Existing Dataset" option and select the XML file saved in step 2; 

4) make any changes to the dataset using the Verify web forms;

VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 002271 



5) submit the modified dataset. 


FE Label Reminders; 

FE Labels with errors won't be posted on the web: FE Labels with errors (which are not corrected in EPA's Verify 
data base by May 11 , 2011) will not be sent to DOE for posting on www.fueleconomy.gov. For example, FE Labels 
will not be sent to DOE for posting on www.fueleconomy.gov. if they contain errors in the unadjusted combined 
fuel economy value; errors in the adjusted city, highway or combined fuel economy value; missing interior 
volume/cargo volume information (required for passenger cars only--except not required for 2-seater vehicles); 
duplicate entries, etc. 

Release date for 2011 Labels; Please be sure that the release date is correct in EPA's Verify data base. For the May 
release, we will post FE Labels on the web which have a release date of May 23, 2011 and earlier. 

2WD SUV Classification; As outlined on page 6 of EPA guidance letter ClSD-10-14, Aug 5, 2010, when labeling 2WD 
SUVs, please continue to use the same vehicle classification category as in past model years (even though 2WD 
SUVs equal to or less than 6000 lbs GVWR will be included in 2011 and 2012 passenger car CAFEs). Similar to EPA 
policy for 2011 model year vehicles, EPA will require 2012 and later model year 2WD SUVs to continue to be 
included in the 2WD SUV comparable class for fuel economy labeling purposes, based on the provisions of 40 CFR 
600.315-08(a)(l) and 600.315-08(a)(2) as revised in 74 FR 61537, November 25, 2009. 

Fuel Costs: New 2012 fuel costs will be provided to manufacturers in a future EPA guidance letter. Until the 2012 
model year fuel costs are provided, manufacturers should continue to use the 2011 model year fuel costs provided 
in EPA guidance letter CISD-10-14. Please contact Bob Peavyhouse (734-214-4814 or by email) or me if you need a 
fuel cost for LPG or Hydrogen. 

Range of comparable vehicles; Until the 2012 ranges (for the various classes of vehicles) are provided in a future 
EPA guidance letter, manufacturers should continue to use the 2011 model year ranges provided in CISD-10-19, 
Sept 13, 2010 (except if a model exceeds the 2011 range values, the manufacturer should extend the range 
appropriately); ref 40 CFR 600.306-08(b)(l). 

If you have any questions, feel free to give your team member or me a call or send us an email message. I'm at 
734-214-4450.

Thanks for the heads up. Latest word from the lab is that they can test Diesels starting Thursday so prep would 
be Wednesday. I don't yet have confirmation that they are planning to run both diesels that day.

Hi, Sebasitan. 

I am sending you a copy of this letter that I just sent to Dennis. The test group that I'd originally selected 
has been changed to a different test group. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Mr. Dennis Reineke

Auburn Hills, Michigan 48326 

Dear Mr. Reineke: 


OFFICE OF 
AIR AND RADIATION 


The Environmental Protection Agency will test a 2009 model-year Volkswagen 
test-group in our surveillance test-program. This class will replace the test group that was 
originally designated in my April 1 letter to you. The group shown in Enclosure 1 will be tested 
at the National Vehicle and Fuel Emissions Laboratory in Ami Arbor, Michigan. Test results 
which exceed applicable standards may lead to confirmatory testing. 

A sample of two or more vehicles will be procured. Maintenance will consist of an 
under-hood inspection and review of on-board computer codes. The federal test procedure and 
highway cycle will follow a single LA-4 preconditioning cycle. If this test-group contains 
models which are equipped with 4 WD or AWD, the vehicles may be tested in either of these 
modes. 


One vehicle may be subjected to evaporative testing and a US06 is usually run per class. 

Additionally, fault conditions may be introduced on one or more of the vehicles to test the 
response of the On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) system. If you are aware of OBD enabling 
criteria which would limit our ability to evaluate these systems, please inform me. Copies of 
the OBD enabling criteria which were approved during certification should be provided if there 
are such limitations. 


We invite your representatives to be present as observers during the test program . If you 

have any questions concerning this investigation please contact me. 


Sincerely, 



Lynn Sohacki 

Compliance and Innovative Strategies Division

HellofEx. 4-CBli 

L_ • 


The attached scan has the Verify error report for this Lamborghini 
Gallardo index #65. It was not accepted because the highway test has 
bag 1 values and they should not be there. We cannot change this data 
because it was an EPA confirmatory test. Who is responsible for 
correcting this old 2009 EPA test? I am sure there are a number of 
other EPA tests that must be corrected.

Hi Bill, The FTP city is failing NMOG and will be retested. 

The US06 and Highway are more than 3% low on FE so let me know if VW accepts the data or requests a 
retest.

Hello Jim, 


Today we submitted a request for certificate for test group CVWXV02.0U36 (VW Jetta). This test group is 
a carryover from BVWXVOZ.OMPi. 


We experienced some delay before getting the OBD approval, so our timing is rather tight. Any help 
you could provide from your end is greatly appreciated.

Hello Jim; 

As you can see from the mail below and the Verify help desk response, 
the ERA will have to repair the ERA confirmatory test to eliminate the 
bag 1 results from the test (#9ADX09010216). This new rule, that has 
affected most of our SC03 and Highway tests, does not permit a value to 
be entered in Bag 1. We had to fix several manufacture tests in order 
for the 2012 labels to be accepted Into Verify. We are unable or 
permitted to change the data In an ERA test. Could you please 
investigate and let me know the outcome? 

Thanks,

The rule is new since last Friday's deployment. You will have to refer a 
different test or discuss this with your ERA cert.

correcting this old 2009 EPA test? I am sure there are a number of 
other EPA tests that must be corrected.

Here's the Diesel Passat data. The FTP data was voided due to CH4 span check and will have to be rerun. 
Let me if VW accepts the US06 and Hwy. 

I haven't seen any of the recent tests in Verify yet but hopefully we will later this morning.

That's good but I think we should wait until the data appears in Verify first. I heard they fixed a bug that 
was holding up transfers.

Hello Dave; 


Sorry about all the fuss about this Lamborghini model and the 
communication that ERA got from the Lamborghini agency. As you know 
our office labeled the Aventador Coupe and Aventador Roadster (carline 
476) back in January with a release date of February 28th. This was 
all good at that time. Today we learned that the Aventador Roadster 
will most likely not be built during the 2012 production year, but more 
likely as the 2013 model year starts production. Since this 2012 
Roadster model will most likely not be available, we request that it be 
suppressed or removed from the online fuel economy guide. 


Once we get the litmus test issues from Verify resolved, as we are 
having trouble to enter new labels and correct already issued labels 
into Verify, I will change the release date of the Lamborghini Aventador 
Roadster, label index 06. 


If you have any questions, please call me. 


Best regards.

Thanks for the call Friday. It was great to touch base and compare notes 
a little bit. And I apologize for the delay in my follow-up. (In fact, 
hopefully the issue has started to blow over by now...!) 

As promised, pasted below is a distillation of what transpired from our 
program experts .It has been reviewed and approved by Line and Karl, who 
green-lighted my sharing it with you directly (as you can tell this is 
all a little outside my lane). The language could be helpful facts and 
fodder to draw from, in the unlikely event we have to field any 
questions regarding EPA "leaking" Information. Also, any responses would 
be filtered through the agency's broader press office 

As we discussed last week, please reply w/your PR contact, and let us 
know If in your view there's any inaccuracies and if you're able to

share any language you've prepared or whether you'll riff from this. 

Thanks much! I think it will be helpful to everyone to be on the same 
page. 

Through websites like www.fueleconomy.gov, EPA is committed to providing 
consumers with the best fuel economy and environmental Information 
possible to help consumers comparison shop for a new vehicle. EPA 
periodically updates fuel economy information into www.fueleconomy.gov 
as it becomes available from the manufacturers. The manufacturers 
provide EPA with a date, known as the release date, when the 
information has been cleared to be released to the public. EPA only 
updates the website with fuel economy Information after the release date 
has passed. For the latest fuel economy information update, 
VW/Lamborghini provided Feb. 28, 2011 as the public release date for 
such information regarding its model year (MY) 2012 Lamborghini 
Aventador Roadster. Based on this release date, EPA provided the 
appropriate information for posting on www.fueleconomy.gov in our 
initial release of MY 2012 data. This is in keeping with the agency's 
standard operating procedure for all cars and light trucks 
VW/Lamborghini recently decided that the launch of the vehicle in 
question will be delayed for this model year. As such, on June 2, 2011, 
they asked EPA to pull that particular model from www.fueleconomy.gov, 
which we did. Thus in both cases, EPA acted based on specific requests 
from the manufacturer.

Hello Jim; 

As you can see from the mail below and the Verify help desk response, 
the EPA will have to repair the EPA confirmatory test to eliminate the 
bag 1 results from the test (#9ADX09010216). This new rule, that has 
affected most of our SC03 and Highway tests, does not permit a value to 
be entered in Bag 1. We had to fix several manufacture tests in order 
for the 2012 labels to be accepted into Verify. We are unable or 
permitted to change the data in an EPA test. Could you please 
investigate and let me know the outcome? 

Thanks,

Hello Vince; 

The attached scan has the Verify error report for this Lamborghini 
Gallardo index #65. It was not accepted because the highway test has 
bag 1 values and they should not be there. We cannot change this data 
because it was an EPA confirmatory test. Who is responsible for 
correcting this old 2009 EPA test? I am sure there are a number of 
other EPA tests that must be corrected.

Okay, I finally remembered to delete the requests this morning. You can re-submit them and they 
should be fine. 

The same problem that kept the STP composite calculated values from showing also effected the CSI 
data printouts in the Part One Application pdf files of the VW and 2 Audi applications that just denied. 
Those Part One pdf files will need to be revised with new CSI summaries printouts. I don't think you 
need to wait on re-submitting the Cert request over revising the pdf if you are running tight on the

After some internal discussions with our colleagues from Lamborghini we came to the conclusion that we

If press will call Lamborghini the answer will match this enclosed statement. 

For Lamborghini the press contact is Kevin Fisher [Kevin.Fisher@centigrade.com]. If customers call in and 
ask for more details your statement may be that they should contact the local/next Lamborghini dealer to 
get more updates.

fuel economy and environmental information possible to help consumers comparison shop for a new vehicle. EPA 
periodically updates fuel economy Information into www.fueleconomy.gov as it becomes available from the 
manufacturers. The manufacturers provide EPA with a date, known as the release date, when the information has 
been cleared to be released to the public. EPA only updates the website with fuel economy information after the 
release date has passed. For the latest fuel economy information update, Lamborghini provided Feb. 28, 2011 as 
the public release date for such information regarding its model year (MY) 2012 Lamborghini Aventador Roadster. 
Based on this release date, EPA provided the appropriate information for posting on www.fueleconomy.gov in our 
Initial release of MY 2012 data. This Is In keeping with the agency's standard operating procedure for all cars and 
light trucks. LamborghInI's submission of this information was premature and they recently informed us that no 
final decision has been made on the production of an Aventador Roadster. As such, on June 2, 2011, they asked 
EPA to pull that particular model from www.fueleconomy.gov, which we did. Thus in both cases, EPA acted based 
on specific requests from the manufacturer. 

Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

Thanks for the call Friday. It was great to touch base and compare notes 
a little bit. And I apologize for the delay in my follow-up. (In fact, 
hopefully the issue has started to blow over by now...!) 

As promised, pasted below is a distillation of what transpired from our 
program experts .It has been reviewed and approved by Line and Karl, who 
green-lighted my sharing it with you directly (as you can tell this Is 
all a little outside my lane). The language could be helpful facts and 
fodder to draw from, in the unlikely event we have to field any 
questions regarding EPA "leaking" information. Also, any responses would 
be filtered through the agency's broader press office 

As we discussed last week, please reply w/your PR contact, and let us

Okay, I finally remembered to delete the requests this morning. You can re-submit them and they 
should be fine. 

The same problem that kept the STP composite calculated values from showing also effected the CSI 
data printouts in the Part One Application pdf files of the VW and 2 Audi applications that just denied. 
Those Part One pdf files will need to be revised with new CSI summaries printouts. I don't think you 
need to wait on re-submitting the Cert request over revising the pdf if you are running tight on the 
certificate timing.

Richard, 

Regarding base tires, see page 17, parag G. [I'm not sure what NHTSA does if they can't find a vehicle 
equipped with the base tires.]

Subject: Found yet another glitch in the new Verify System release. 

LiqhtDutvCertificationDataSubmission.xml 


Problem: For diesels the EPA performs two US06 tests (A one bag test as the Confirmatory Test for 
certification with PM measurement and one as a two bag test for fuel economy without PM 
measurement.). The PM is needed for the PM Comp calculation and the two bag test is needed for the 
Litmus Test for fuel economy. 

The problem is you get the error message below for the US06 test number entered in the Litmus Test 
section when the required two bag test (w/o PM measurement) number is entered. PM is not required for 
the Litmus Test, so this business rule should not apply to the Litmus test entries. 


I have submitted Test Group Info xml files with all combinations of the US06 test numbers. I get back 
either the error message below or the a CSI file with N/A in the Litmus Test fields. Neither is acceptable.

Subject: Split-Bag US06 PM Issue (HLP-1321) 

Bob, 

(Helpdesk: This is in response to help desk ticket HLP-1321) 

The core issue is that LOD (the EPA "Laboratory Operations Division") did not have a way of measuring PM 
for a split bag US06 test. To get around this problem they ran 2 tests, a single bag US06 for certification 
(measured PM), and a split bag US06 test for the fuel economy "Litmus" calculation. This causes an 
additional problem, because there can only be 1 "official" test ran and/or entered into Verify. 

LOD now has a way of measuring PM for a split bag US06 test, so this shouldn't be an issue in the future, 
so we do NOT need to modify or suspend any of the current business rules. 

I have talked to the certification representatives, and they have agreed to the following short-term work 
around for this problem: 

A "correction" of the split bag test will be submitted with all of the same test results, but we will transfer 
the PM results from the single bag test to it. We will add a test comment that describes how and why this 
test was modified, and reference this email. I will make the modification to the test XML file and have our 
helpdesk submit it as "LOD" so that we can use the LOD fuel properties already in Verify. 

The split bag US06 test is Verify test number CVWX91000952, but I do not have the test number for the 
single bag test. 

Please provide me with the test number of the single bag test that contains the PM results, so that I can 
proceed.

Hello Jim, 

I submitted four new Decision Information's to support a running change. This running change replaces 
the existing worst case vehicle in test group CADXJ02.03UA. 

The new test vehicle is a VW Tiquan 2.0 TFSI 4-motion with automatic transmission. It replaces the same 
model carried over to 2012 from 2011 model year. This new model represents 100% of 2012 model year 
Tiquan production. As the result of most changes aimed at improving fuel economy, all configuration 
require Manufacturer retests due to high FE for the ETW. 


The manual transmission tests are forthcoming but 1 do not have them yet. 

We are on a tight schedule with SOP so your decision on the automatics is requested at your earliest 
convenience.

Hi Bob; 


If you need test numbers for ERA lab tests and current 2012 model year 
problems I have regarding bag 1 data for highway ERA tests here is a 
current listing: 


Audi model index #70, city test # 9ADX09010296 (there is bag 4 data 
entered); highway test #9ADX09010297 (there is bag 1 data entered). I 
need this one soon because Audi of America has moved up the port release 
date. 


Lamborghini model index #65, highway test # 9ADX09010216 (there is bag 1 
data entered) 


Regarding another issue; I sent you an email with a problem with the 
correction to 2010 Lamborghini index #002 and the litmus check not being 
calculated because the US06 in 2010 was a one bag test and I believe the 
US06 for the litmus test must have two bags. Do you have a suggestion 
regarding these US06 two bags? 


The third issue for the Volkswagen Group is the rejection of the 2010 
CAFE, because we corrected an axle ratio on the Audi TTS model. I can 
correct the 2010 CAFE input, if I remember how. 


If you need anything or have any questions, please let me know. 


Thanks,

Richard, 

The write of the fuel economy values back to the production database 
should happen tonight. 

The initial attempt failed, but we figured out the issues, and it is 
scheduled to happen ASAP. 

I am in the process of getting access to submit tests as LOD, so if we 
have an EPA test that has fuel economy in for Bag 1 FE, then I will be 
able to fix this type of problem myself. It will probably take a couple 
of days to get my LOD permission, but If you still have a couple of 
these types of issues, I will be able to fix them.

Dear Mr. Sherwood, 


In regards to your recent email, we would like to make a suggestion in order for us to properly understand each 
other. 

There will be a meeting on PM Measurement between members of the Auto Alliance and the EPA on July 18th at 
10:30 am, and Dr. Ramacher and I will be present that Monday. 


We would like to arrange a meeting to clarify the idea behind this paper and to talk frankly about the two 
intentions of WLTP proposal, which are: 

1. Substituting the Dilution Factor (DF) calculation with a Dilution Ratio (DR) measurement 

2. Clarifying the different interpretations of the topic 'Intake air subtraction" 

Some possible examples to get the idea across: 

- a Hydrogen combustion engine can't oxidize intake CH4 during Lambda 1 operation and can't get rid of intake 
C02 (450ppm in a test cell, although it may in fact be 390ppm outside), which results in 1.5g/mi for a BMW 
Hydrogen vehicle 

- intake N20 (background is 320ppb) is not altered during cold start and results in about Img/mi just from intake 
air 


There may be an opportunity to discuss the intentions of the paper and to gather more understanding on both 
sides after the Alliance meeting on Monday or on Tuesday, the 19th. 


I look forward to hearing back from you. Thank you for your time. 


Best Regards, 


Wolfgang

Betreff: Re: WG: Re: subtraction of intake air pollution 


Dr. Ramacher, 

Unfortunately 1 am not able to attend meetings this week in Geneva. Karl Simon will represent the U.S. at the GRPE 
plenary meeting on Thursday. 

Please forgive the brevity and frankness of my response, but the US has not changed our position on the topic. We 
do not believe it is appropriate to subtract intake air pollutants from the exhaust determination. 

Below are some thoughts on this topic from a couple of our experts. I am pasting these into this message from 
internal U.S. EPA email threads so please read them that way - they are taken from email conversations and are 
not carefully drafted EPA positions. These internal conversations took place following my receipt of your ’’Reply 
EPA INTAKE AIR" document on 29 March 2011. 

Best regards, 

Todd Sherwood 

From Internal U.S. EPA email threads: 

A couple of notes, they cite 1065 and state that this test procedure does not mention intake air background. That 

7 


VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 002409 





is because it is governed by the standard setting part, part 86 here in the US, and that is why it is not in our new 
test procedures (part 1065). 

Their method does have an advantage in that you could determine real dilution ratio (similar to what is in 1065), 
but they are adding the complexity of measuring intake air flow rate. I am not sure that complexity of adding this is 
worth the supposed benefit. 

I can't argue against their explanation of the concept of net vehicle emissions. I guess in the end, according to their 
strategy, they are really just looking at the net, regardless of what happens to the background components during 
the combustion and post combustion catalytic treatment of the exhaust. This is fine, but has an adverse effect on 
the stringency of the standard, which gets to my next point. Their argument about counting intake air emissions in 
the total vehicle emission result will not adversely effect one type of combustion technology over another. The fact 
of the matter is that if they are allowed to subtract out the intake air background, this will make it easier for them 
to meet the standard, reducing the standard's effectiveness. Thus to keep things on the currently level playing 
field, we would be forced to reduce the level of the standard. Further, with respect to C02, we are talking about a 
background of 390 ppm on a vehicle that emits 50,000 ppm, the background contribution is negligible. 

In reference to the writer's reference with respect to lean burn engines being penalized under current regulation: 

In effect lean burn engines now get a break, in that the assumption of stoichiometric combustion for calculating 
dilution factor means that the background concentration of excess air passing through the engine is actually 
subtracted from the concentration of what is coming out of the tailpipe.

Dear Mr. Sherwood, 

I am contacting you again on behalf of the WLTP-DTP-LabProcICE group. 

Would you require any additional information on the proposal for subtraction of intake air pollution (Doc# 
LabProclCE-020)? (Should you attend this week's GRPE meeting in Geneva, a face-to-face discussion with Mr. Thie 
could be a good possibility)

Betreff: Re: WG; Re: subtraction of intake air pollution 


Dr. Ramacher, 

Unfortunately 1 am not able to attend meetings this week in Geneva. Karl Simon will represent the U.S. at the GRPE 
plenary meeting on Thursday. 

Please forgive the brevity and frankness of my response, but the US has not changed our position on the topic. We 
do not believe it is appropriate to subtract Intake air pollutants from the exhaust determination. 

Below are some thoughts on this topic from a couple of our experts. I am pasting these into this message from 
internal U.S. EPA email threads so please read them that way - they are taken from email conversations and are 
not carefully drafted EPA positions. These internal conversations took place following my receipt of your "Reply 
EPA INTAKE AIR" document on 29 March 2011. 

Best regards, 

Todd Sherwood 

From internal U.S. EPA email threads: 

A couple of notes, they cite 1065 and state that this test procedure does not mention intake air background. That 
is because it is governed by the standard setting part, part 86 here in the US, and that is why it Is not in our new 
test procedures (part 1065). 

Their method does have an advantage in that you could determine real dilution ratio (similar to what is in 1065), 
but they are adding the complexity of measuring intake air flow rate. I am not sure that complexity of adding this is 
worth the supposed benefit. 

I can't argue against their explanation of the concept of net vehicle emissions. I guess In the end, according to their 
strategy, they are really just looking at the net, regardless of what happens to the background components during 
the combustion and post combustion catalytic treatment of the exhaust. This is fine, but has an adverse effect on 
the stringency of the standard, which gets to my next point. Their argument about counting intake air emissions in 
the total vehicle emission result will not adversely effect one type of combustion technology over another. The fact 
of the matter is that If they are allowed to subtract out the intake air background, this will make it easier for them 
to meet the standard, reducing the standard's effectiveness. Thus to keep things on the currently level playing 
field, we would be forced to reduce the level of the standard. Further, with respect to C02, we are talking about a 
background of 390 ppm on a vehicle that emits 50,000 ppm, the background contribution is negligible. 

In reference to the writer's reference with respect to lean burn engines being penalized under current regulation: 

In effect lean burn engines now get a break, in that the assumption of stoichiometric combustion for calculating 
dilution factor means that the background concentration of excess air passing through the engine is actually 
subtracted from the concentration of what is coming out of the tailpipe.

Dear Mr. Sherwood, 

I am contacting you again on behalf of the WLTP-DTP-LabProcICE group. 

Would you require any additional information on the proposal for subtraction of intake air pollution (Doc# 
LabProclCE-020)? (Should you attend this week's GRPE meeting in Geneva, a face-to-face discussion with Mr. Thie 
could be a good possibility) 

Could you please let us know, whether EPA's opinion on this topic has changed? 

Thank you for looking into this! 

Kind Regards!

Subject: VW/Audi lUVP program MY2006 and MY2010 

sebastian.berenz@vw.com 


Hello Mr. Ba 


A few days ago we discussed VW's and Audi's lUVP program and the status on it in a phone ca 
I just want to give you a short summary on this. 


Like I already explained we are assuming that the iUVP program will not be finished by the end of July this 
year. 

Our assumption is that we will be finished by the end of September this year with high mileage program 
for MY2006 and low mileage program for MY2010. 

We will try to schedule everything as tight as we can to finish earlier, but it really depends on customer 
participation and our laboratory. 

One major reason for that delay is, that we have a hard time finding the right cars per test groups with the 
right mileage and getting the customers convinced to participate in our program. 

We are constantly trying to improve this as good as we can. 

Another disadvantage is, that we had some technical problems with our SHED chamber in our laboratory 
in Westlake Village, CA. 

Like i already told you, we are capable of measuring only one SHED vehicle per week. This bottleneck 
decelerates our MY2006s and MY2010s program tremendously when technical problems occur. 


The status so far: 

For MY2006 there are only six cars left to be tested. MY2010 will be started in the next few weeks. 
I will give you an update on all our projects after the end of July. 

The test data will be submitted constantly as soon as I have received the results. 


I just wanted to inform you about this situation timely before any delay occurs.

VWqroup-2Q12 FE Guide-6-23-2Q11.zip 


Richard, 


Attached are Excel Spreadsheets for each manufacturer which you are handling. 

The spreadsheet(s) are encrypted & password protected—with the same password as for the May 
posting. If you didn't have any FE Label data in EPA's Verify data base for the May posting, I'll call you 
with the password—or you can call me at 734-214-4450 to get the password. You'll need WinZip 11 or 
later (or other similar software) to unzip the files. We have WinZip 14.0. 

The spreadsheet(s) contain all the 2012 FE label data from EPA's Verify data base as of June 23, 2011. 
Please review the attached data for errors (including my comments in the first column) and make the 
appropriate corrections in Verify. Please double check any new FE Labels which you input into Verify (not 
listed in this spreadsheet) to make sure they are error free. Any corrections should be made directly in 
the EPA Verify database. [Do not correct the spreadsheet and send it back.] I am forwarding the schedule 
for the July, 2011 release and some "reminders" for your convenience. 

The models highlighted in green fill (if any) contain errors and will not be sent to DOE for web posting 
unless the errors are corrected. 

The last date to make changes for the web posting is July 5, 2011. EPA will review the data on July 6 and 
forward it to DOE on (or before) July 7 for posting on the web on July 15, 2011. 

Here are two additional reminders: 

1. Model Type Descriptor: The new "model type descriptor" field in Verify release 8 (field GL-78.2 in the 
FE Label module) should normally be blank. This field should only be used to identify otherwise identical 
basic engines & model types—e.g. use a "4-valve" descriptor to delineate between otherwise identical 2- 
valve and 4-valve engines. Please enter "FFV" in the field if the vehicles are flexible fueled vehicles and 
"FFV" is not contained in the carline name. 

2. Engine Management System: An "Engine Management System" (field GL-75 in the FE Label module) is 
defined as an idle stop/start system in Advisory Circular 83A, paragraph IV. B. 2 8. (page 4) as follows: 

"IV. Definitions 
8. Transmission Class 

2. EPA will also distinguish transmission classes based on the presence of the following 
parameters: 

b. Engine Management System. Vehicles equipped with an engine management system (a

separate 


stop/start engine device such as Volkswagen's SNA system [in the early 1980s]) will be In 
transmission classes from those not equipped with an engine management system." 

Please don't enter "Yes" for that field unless the vehicle Is actually equipped with such a system. 

Please let me know when you have made all corrections, entered any new labels into Verify and everything is 
"good to go." 

Thanks

Subject: re: 2012 FE Label data in EPA data base as of July 6 , 2011 is attached for your review 

(including data sent to DOE for web posting) 

VW-qroup~2012 FE Guide-7-6-2Q11.zip 

Richard, 


The attached 2012 FE Label data for the nnanufacturer(s) which you are handling were forwarded to DOE 
on July 7, 2011 for posting on the web at www.fuelecononny.gov. [Only releasable, non-confidential data 
were forwarded to DOE.] The attached spreadsheet(s) are encrypted & password protected using the 
same password which I gave you previously. 

The attached spreadsheet(s) include all 2012 FE Label data in EPA's Verify data base as of July 6, 2011. 
Note that the attached spreadsheet(s) also include data which were not forwarded to DOE because the 
data contains errors or the release date was after July 15, 2011. 

Releasable data will be posted on the web on July 15, 2011. The models highlighted in green fill (if any) 
contain errors and were not sent to DOE for web posting. If the release date was prior to July 15, 2011 for 
these models. I'll be glad to send the corrected data to DOE for web posting after the errors have been 
corrected in Verify. 

Please review the data and correct Verify if any errors still exist. Please contact me if you find any errors 
in the releasable data which was sent to DOE for web posting. 

As we discussed yesterday, please let me know when the changes to oil viscosity, etc have been made in 
Verify and I'll send the data to DOE for posting on the web. 

Thanks 


Reminders: 

FE Labels with errors won't be posted on the web; FE Labels with errors will not be sent to DOE for 
posting on www.fueleconomy.gov. For example, FE Labels will not be sent to DOE for posting on 
www.fueleconomy.gov. if they contain errors in the unadjusted combined fuel economy value; errors In 
the adjusted city, highway or combined fuel economy value; missing interior volume/cargo volume 
information (required for passenger cars only--except not required for 2-seater vehicles); duplicate 
entries. Incorrect oil viscosity values, etc. 

Release date for 2011 Labels; Please be sure that the release date is correct in EPA's Verify data base. For 
the July release, we will post FE Labels on the web which have a release date of July 15, 2011 and earlier. 

2WD SUV Classification; As outlined on page 6 of EPA guidance letter ClSD-10-14, Aug 5, 2010, when 
labeling 2WD SUVs, please continue to use the same vehicle classification category as in past model years 


1 


VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 002440 



(even though 2WD SUVs equal to or less than 6000 lbs GVWR will be included in 2011 and 2012 passenger car 
CAFEs). Similar to ERA policy for 2011 model year vehicles, ERA will require 2012 and later model year 2WD SUVs 
to continue to be included in the 2WD SUV comparable class for fuel economy labeling purposes, based on the 
provisions of 40 CFR 600.315-08(a)(l) and 600.315-08(a)(2) as revised In 74 FR 61537, November 25, 2009. 

Fuel Costs: New 2012 fuel costs will be provided to manufacturers In a future ERA guidance letter. Until the 2012 
model year fuel costs are provided, manufacturers should continue to use the 2011 model year fuel costs provided 
in ERA guidance letter CISD-10-14. Rlease contact Bob Reavyhouse (734-214-4814 or by email) or me if you need a 
fuel cost for LRG or Hydrogen. 

Range of comparable vehicles: Until the 2012 ranges (for the various classes of vehicles) are provided in a future 
ERA guidance letter, manufacturers should continue to use the 2011 model year ranges provided in CISD-10-19, 
Sept 13, 2010 (except if a model exceeds the 2011 range values, the manufacturer should extend the range 
appropriately); ref 40 CFR 600.306-08(b)(l). 

Model Type Descriptor: The new "model type descriptor" field in Verify release 8 (field GL-78.2 in the FE Label 
module) should only be used to identify otherwise identical basic engines & model types—e.g. enter "4-valve" in 
the field to delineate between otherwise identical 2-valve and 4-valve engines; enter "FFV" in the field If "FFV" is 
not contained in the carline name, etc. Note that in some cases. Verify business rules will not allow the field to be 
blank. Thus, except to identify otherwise identical basic engines & model types, please enter "N/A" (not 
applicable) or the carline name in the field until the business rule can be revised. 

Engine Management System: An "Engine Management System" (field GL-75 in the FE Label module) is defined as 
an idle stop/start system in Advisory Circular 83A, paragraph IV. B. 2 B. (page 4) as follows: 

"IV. Definitions 
B. Transmission Class 

2. ERA will also distinguish transmission classes based on the presence of the following parameters: 
b. Engine Management System. Vehicles equipped with an engine management system (a stop/start 
engine device such as Volkswagen's SNA system [in the early 1980s]) will be in separate transmission 

classes from those not equipped with an engine management system." 

Rlease enter "Yes" for that field only If the vehicle is actually equipped with such a (stop/start) system. 

Questions: If you have any additional questions, feel free to give your team member or me a call or send us an 
email message. I'm at 734-214-4450.

Hi, Sebastian. 

Thank you for the parameters form. Unfortunately, the attachments that are referred to in the 
parameters form (canister load procedure, ABS disabling, and traction control disabling) did not come 
through the e-mail as attachments. Please send them so we can test the vehicles properly. 

Also, we noticed that this vehicle has a road leveler mechanism. Should this be on or off during the tests? 

Thanks in advance for your answers.

Hello Lynn, 

Thanks for letting me know. 

Attached you will find the parameter sheet and the drain procedure for the Touareg. We would like to 
come over on Tuesday and check the car in. 

Probably John white will let me know when he wants us around. 

Is there already any update on the 2.51 Jetta MY2009?

Sorry for that Lynn, 

That is not necessary. ABS can stay like it is. 

Even ESP does not need to be deactivated, because of the permanent all wheel drive and the use of an a 
wheel drive dyno.

Sorry for that Lynn, 

That is not necessary. ABS can stay like it is. 

Even ESP does not need to be deactivated, because of the permanent all wheel drive and the use of an a 
wheel drive dyno.

Thanks, Sebastian. 

There is also a mention on the parameter form of a document for A8S

Subject: VW Group Methane Deteroriation Factors 


Hello Jim, 


As a follow up to my voice message, I was curious about the separate DF's which seem to be required for 
City/Highway tests, as indicated in the regulations below. Note, we are using the fleet average option. 
For N20 we are using the standard (0.010) so I believe no DF applies. 


I would like to discuss briefly if you are available. 


Thanks, 

Mike

Title 40 § 86.1823-08(m)(2)(ii) and (iii) 

2) N 2 O and CH 4. (i) For manufacturers complying with the emission standards for N20 and CH4specified in 
§86.1818-12(f)(l), deterioration factors for N20 and CH4shall be determined according to the provisions of 
paragraphs (a) through (I) of this section. 

(ii) For manufacturers complying with the fleet averaging option for N20 and CH4as allowed under 
§86.1818-12(f)(2), separate deterioration factors shall be determined for the FTP and HFET test cycles. Therefore 
each FTP test performed on the durability data vehicle selected under §86.1822-01 of this part must also be 
accompanied by an HFET test. 

(ill) For the 2012 through 2014 model years only, manufacturers may use alternative deterioration factors. For 
N20, the alternative deterioration factor to be used to adjust FTP and HFET emissions is the deterioration factor 
determined for NOXemissions according to the provisions of this section. For CH4, the alternative deterioration 
factor to be used to adjust FTP and HFET emissions is the deterioration factor determined for NMOG or NMHC 
emissions according to the provisions of this section. 

(3) Other carbon-related exhaust emissions. Deterioration factors shall be determined according to the provisions 
of paragraphs (a) through (I) of this section. Optionally, in lieu of determining emission-specific FTP and HFET 
deterioration factors for CH30H (methanol), HCHO (formaldehyde), C2H50H (ethanol), and C2H40 (acetaldehyde), 
manufacturers may use the deterioration factor determined for NMOG or NMHC emissions according to the 
provisions of this section. 


§86.1818-12(f)(2) 

(f) Nitrous oxide (N 2 O) and methane (CH 4 ) exhaust emission standards for passenger automobiles and light 
trucks. Each manufacturer's fleet of combined passenger automobile and light trucks must comply with N20 and 
CH4standards using either the provisions of paragraph (f)(1) of this section or the provisions of paragraph (f)(2) of 
this section. The manufacturer may not use the provisions of both paragraphs (f)(1) and (f)(2) of this section in a 
model year. For example, a manufacturer may not use the provisions of paragraph (f)(1) of this section for their 
passenger automobile fleet and the provisions of paragraph (f)(2) for their light truck fleet in the same model year. 

(1) Standards applicable to each test group. 

(1) Exhaust emissions of nitrous oxide (N20) shall not exceed 0.010 grams per mile at full useful life, as measured 
according to the Federal Test Procedure (FTP) described in subpart 8 of this part. 

(ii) Exhaust emissions of methane (CH4) shall not exceed 0.030 grams per mile at full useful life, as measured 
according to the Federal Test Procedure (FTP) described in subpart B of this part. 

(2) Including N 2 O and CH 4 in fleet averaging program. Manufacturers may elect to not meet the emission 
standards in paragraph (f)(1) of this section. Manufacturers making this election shall include N20 and 
CH4emissions In the determination of their fleet average carbon-related exhaust emissions, as calculated in 
subpart F of part 600 of this chapter. Manufacturers using this option must include both N20 and CH4full useful 
life values in the fleet average calculations for passenger automobiles and light trucks. Use of this option will 
account for N20 and CH4emissions within the carbon-related exhaust emission value determined for each model 
type according to the provisions part 600 of this chapter. This option requires the determination of full useful life

Hello Jim, 

Just a heads up, I submitted a certification request and application for the Bentley test group 
CBEXV06.84LA. This is a carryover test group from 2011 with no changes. All of the Verify release 8 
changes in Section 7 of the application have been satisfied with no place holders necessary. 

We have been delayed getting this application submitted due to OBD discussions (see Sec.16 OBD 
approval letter) so scheduled SOP is rather soon. Any effort you can make to prioritize this Certificate 
would be appreciated. 


Please let me know if you have any questions.

Hello Jim, 

As a follow up to my voice message, I was curious about the separate DF's which seem to be required for 
City/Highway tests, as indicated in the regulations below. Note, we are using the fleet average option. 
For N20 we are using the standard (0.010) so I believe no DF applies. 

I would like to discuss briefly if you are available. 

Thanks,

(ii) For manufacturers complying with the fleet averaging option for N20 and CH4as allowed under 
§86.1818-12(f)(2), separate deterioration factors shall be determined for the FTP and HFET test cycles. Therefore 
each FTP test performed on the durability data vehicle selected under §86.1822-01 of this part must also be 
accompanied by an HFET test. 

(ili) For the 2012 through 2014 model years only, manufacturers may use alternative deterioration factors. For 
N20, the alternative deterioration factor to be used to adjust FTP and HFET emissions is the deterioration factor 
determined for NOXemissions according to the provisions of this section. For CH4, the alternative deterioration 
factor to be used to adjust FTP and HFET emissions Is the deterioration factor determined for NMOG or NMHC 
emissions according to the provisions of this section. 

(3) Other carbon-related exhaust emissions. Deterioration factors shall be determined according to the provisions 
of paragraphs (a) through (I) of this section. Optionally, in lieu of determining emission-specific FTP and HFET 
deterioration factors for CH30H (methanol), HCHO (formaldehyde), C2H50H (ethanol), and C2H40 (acetaldehyde), 
manufacturers may use the deterioration factor determined for NMOG or NMHC emissions according to the 
provisions of this section. 


§86.1818-12(f)(2) 

(f) Nitrous oxide (N 2 O) and methane (CH 4 ) exhaust emission standards for passenger automobiles and light 
trucks. Each manufacturer's fleet of combined passenger automobile and light trucks must comply with N20 and 
CH4standards using either the provisions of paragraph (f)(1) of this section or the provisions of paragraph (f)(2) of

Subject: Re: Fw: VW Group Methane Deteroriation Factors 

Jim, 

First Part of the Question: - N20 DF for assigned N20 value of 0.10 g/mi. 

Mike is correct, the manufacturer can use the N20 emission standard of .010 g/mi in the optional CREE 
calculation and they do not have to this value (they only have to apply the N20 & CH4 DF if they use an 
actual measured values). See the regulation reference below: 

§ 600.113 -12 Fuel economy and carbon-related exhaust emission calculations for FTP, HFET, US06, SC03 
and cold temperature FTP tests. 

600.113-12 (g), (2), (iv), (C) 

(iv) For manufacturers complying with the fleet averaging option for N20 and CH4 as allowed under § 
86.1818- 12(f)(2) of this chapter, N20 and CH4 emission values for use in the calculation of carbon- 
related exhaust emissions in this section shall be the values determined according to paragraph 
(g)(2)(iv)(A), (B), or (C) of this section. 

(iv) (C) For the 2012 through 2014 model years only, manufacturers may use an assigned value of 0.010 
g/mi for N20 FTP and HFET test values. This value is not required to be adjusted by a deterioration factor. 

Second Part of the Question - separate DF's which seem to be required for City/Highway tests? 

Separate City and Hwy DF's are required in the current (initial GHG regulations) however, there is a 
change being made to this provision as part of the Heavy Duty GHG final rule (which has been signed but 
Is not official until It is published in the federal register). 

Here is the new language (which can be found in the unofficial version on the OTAQ website) for 
manufacturers using the optional CREE method of complying with the N20 and CH4 cap standards:

§ 86.1823-08 Durability demonstration procedures for exhaust emissions. 

(m) Durability demonstration procedures for vehicles subject to the greenhouse gas exhaust emission standards 
specified in §86.1818. 

(m) (2) N20 and CH4. (i) For manufacturers complying with the FTP emission standards for N20 and CH4 specified 
in §86.1818-12(f)(l) or determined under §86.1818-12 (f)(3), FTP-based deterioration factors for N20 and CH4 
shall be determined according to the provisions of paragraphs (a) through (I) of this section. 

(ii) For manufacturers complying with the fleet averaging option for N20 and CH4 as allowed under 
§86.1818-12(f)(2), deterioration factors based on FTP testing shall be determined and may be used to determine 
full useful life emissions for the FTP and HFET tests. The manufacturer may at its option determine separate 
deterioration factors for the FTP and HFET test cycles, in which case each FTP test performed on the durability data 
vehicle selected under §86.1822 of this part must also be accompanied by an HFET test. 

(iii) For the 2012 through 2014 model years only, manufacturers may use alternative deterioration factors. For 
N20, the alternative deterioration factor to be used to adjust FTP and HFET emissions is the deterioration factor 
determined for NOX emissions according to the provisions of this section. For CH4, the alternative deterioration 
factor to be used to adjust FTP and HFET emissions is the deterioration factor determined for NMOG or NMHC 
emissions according to the provisions of this section.

First Part of the Question: - N20 DF for assigned N20 value of 0.10 g/mi. 

Mike is correct, the manufacturer can use the N20 emission standard of .010 g/mi in the optional CREE calculation 
and they do not have to this value (they only have to apply the N20 & CH4 DF if they use an actual measured 
values). See the regulation reference below: 

§ 600.113 -12 Fuel economy and carbon-related exhaust emission calculations for FTP, HFET, US06, SC03 and cold 
temperature FTP tests. 

600.113-12 (g), (2), (iv), (C) 

(iv) For manufacturers complying with the fleet averaging option for N20 and CH4 as allowed under § 86.1818- 
12(f)(2) of this chapter, N20 and CH4 emission values for use in the calculation of carbon-related exhaust 
emissions in this section shall be the values determined according to paragraph (g)(2)(iv)(A), (B), or (C) of this 
section. 

(iv) (C) For the 2012 through 2014 model years only, manufacturers may use an assigned value of 0.010 g/mi for 
N20 FTP and HFET test values. This value is not required to be adjusted by a deterioration factor. 


Second Part of the Question - separate DF's which seem to be required for City/Highway tests? 

Separate City and Hwy DF's are required in the current (initial GHG regulations) however, there is a change being 
made to this provision as part of the Heavy Duty GHG final rule (which has been signed but is not official until it is 
published in the federal register). 

Here is the new language (which can be found in the unofficial version on the OTAQ website) for manufacturers 
using the optional CREE method of complying with the N20 and CH4 cap standards: 


§ 86.1823-08 Durability demonstration procedures for exhaust emissions. 

(m) Durability demonstration procedures for vehicles subject to the greenhouse gas exhaust emission standards 
specified in §86.1818. 

(m) (2) N20 and CH4. (i) For manufacturers complying with the FTP emission standards for N20 and CH4 specified 
in §86.1818-12(f)(l) or determined under §86.1818-12 (f)(3), FTP-based deterioration factors for N20 and CH4 
shall be determined according to the provisions of paragraphs (a) through (I) of this section. 

(ii) For manufacturers complying with the fleet averaging option for N20 and CH4 as allowed under 
§86.1818-12(f)(2), deterioration factors based on FTP testing shall be determined and may be used to determine

full useful life emissions for the FTP and HFET tests. The manufacturer may at its option determine separate 
deterioration factors for the FTP and HFET test cycles, In which case each FTP test performed on the durability data 
vehicle selected under §86.1822 of this part must also be accompanied by an HFET test. 

(iii) For the 2012 through 2014 model years only, manufacturers may use alternative deterioration factors. For 
N20, the alternative deterioration factor to be used to adjust FTP and HFET emissions is the deterioration factor 
determined for NOX emissions according to the provisions of this section. For CH4, the alternative deterioration 
factor to be used to adjust FTP and HFET emissions is the deterioration factor determined for NMOG or NMHC 
emissions according to the provisions of this section.

Hello Jim, 


As a follow up to my voice message, 1 was curious about the separate DF's which seem to be required for 
City/Highway tests, as indicated in the regulations below. Note, we are using the fleet average option. For N20 
we are using the standard (0.010) so I believe no DF applies. 

I would like to discuss briefly if you are available. 

Thanks, 

Mike

manufacturers may use the deterioration factor determined for NMOG or NMHC emissions according to the 
provisions of this section. 


§86.1818-12(f)(2) 

(f) Nitrous oxide (N 2 O) and methane (CH 4 ) exhaust emission standards for passenger automobiles and light 
trucks. Each manufacturer's fleet of combined passenger automobile and light trucks must comply with N20 and 
CH4standards using either the provisions of paragraph (f)(1) of this section or the provisions of paragraph (f)(2) of 
this section. The manufacturer may not use the provisions of both paragraphs (f)(1) and (f)(2) of this section in a 
model year. For example, a manufacturer may not use the provisions of paragraph (f)(1) of this section for their 
passenger automobile fleet and the provisions of paragraph (f)(2) for their light truck fleet in the same model year. 

(1) Standards applicable to each test group. 

(1) Exhaust emissions of nitrous oxide (N20) shall not exceed 0.010 grams per mile at full useful life, as measured 
according to the Federal Test Procedure (FTP) described in subpart B of this part. 

(ii) Exhaust emissions of methane (CH4) shall not exceed 0.030 grams per mile at full useful life, as measured 
according to the Federal Test Procedure (FTP) described in subpart B of this part. 

(2) Including N 2 O and CH 4 in fleet averaging program. Manufacturers may elect to not meet the emission 
standards in paragraph (f)(1) of this section. Manufacturers making this election shall include N20 and 
CH4emissions in the determination of their fleet average carbon-related exhaust emissions, as calculated in 
subpart F of part 600 of this chapter. Manufacturers using this option must include both N20 and CH4full useful 
life values in the fleet average calculations for passenger automobiles and light trucks. Use of this option will 
account for N20 and CH4emissions within the carbon-related exhaust emission value determined for each model 
type according to the provisions part 600 of this chapter. This option requires the determination of full useful life 
emission values for both the Federal Test Procedure and the Highway Fuel Economy Test.

Hi Bill, I have to leave in minutes for a doctor's appointment but I've been looking through the cert app. 
Looks okay so far except that the fee payment isn't in our database yet. I see by the form that it was 
submitted 8/10 so its probably not thru the system yet. 

I'm off tomorrow but I'll leave a copy of the fee form with Bill in case they was a problem with the

Hello Jim, 

Just a heads up, I submitted a certification request and application for the Bentley test group 
CBEXV06.84LA. This is a carryover test group from 2011 with no changes. All of the Verify release 8 
changes in Section 7 of the application have been satisfied with no place holders necessary. 

We have been delayed getting this application submitted due to OBD discussions (see Sec.16 OBD

Jim, 

I found 42 instances between mid-2005 and the present where VW has submitted the forms for a family 
or group of families before the payment was received. I suspect that this is the case here as well. All 
payments we have received to date are already accounted for. If this is regarded as paid by VW, I need to 
know the date that the ACH payment was made and I'll do some more looking.

Hello Line and Jim: 


I am writing to inquire about the availability of EPA staff to meet with representatives from VW and Audi 
on Thursday, September 29, 2011. 


We have some folks visiting the US for a number of meetings, and would like to use the opportunity to 
discuss some topics with EPA. Our proposal is to meet with EPA staff in the morning of the 29th to discuss 
Tier 3 topics. These arrangements are being made separately. 


I am interested in setting up a meeting in the afternoon on the 29th to discuss PHEV fuel economy and 
labeling, and other certification/emission testing topics. We would like about 2 hours in the afternoon. 


Please let me know if this fits your schedules. I would appreciate it if your could suggest/invite other EPA 
staff as appropriate. 


Best regards.

okay so far except that the fee payment Isn't In our database yet. I see by the form that it was submitted 8/10

VW Group - Bentley Mulsanne Application 


Hello Jim, 

Just a heads up, I submitted a certification request and application for the Bentley test group CBEXV06.84LA. This 
is a carryover test group from 2011 with no changes. All of the Verify release 8 changes in Section 7 of the 
application have been satisfied with no place holders necessary. 

We have been delayed getting this application submitted due to OBD discussions (see Sec.16 OBD approval letter) 
so scheduled SOP Is rather soon. Any effort you can make to prioritize this Certificate would be appreciated. 

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Hello Jim, 

I submitted a decision information file to Verify for the 2012 Audi Q5 (gasoline/electric) Hybrid. Note that 
it is an AWD configuration tested on a 4-wheel drive dyno. 

I have marked it as new technology because it's the first 4-cylinder hybrid for the VW Group and there are 
some hardware and software differences between the Audi hybrid and the existing VW hybrid designs. 
The biggest difference being that Audi uses a integral electric drive unit in the transmission, while VW 
uses a separate drive unit sandwiched between the engine and transmission. Please let me know if you 
have any further question about the vehicle.

Hello Jim, 


Today we submitted a decision information request for the Golf R, which is a new carline being added to 
Audi test group CADXJ02.03UA and evap family CADXR0110238. 


Note, this vehicle Is AWD and will be sold with manual transmission only. There is no new technology 
being introduced with this carline. 


Note, we have also submitted a running change letter and revised initial application for this carline 
addition. We will need a revised certificate (the current certificate number is CADXJ02.03UA-002-R01).

Mr. Dennis Reineke 
Volkswagen of America 
3800 Hamlin Rd., 

Auburn Hills, Michigan 48326 

Dear Mr. Reineke, 

The Environmental Protection Agency will test a 2009 model-year Audi test-group in our 
surveillance test-program. The group shown in Enclosure 1 will be tested at the National 
Vehicle and Fuel Emissions Laboratory in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Test results which exceed 
applicable standards may lead to confirmatory testing. 

A sample of two or more vehicles will be procured. Maintenance will consist of an under¬ 
hood inspection and review of on-board computer codes. The federal test procedure and 
highway cycle will follow a single LA-4 preconditioning cycle. If this test-group contains 
models which are equipped with 4WD or AWD, the vehicles may be tested in either of these 
modes. 


One vehicle may be subjected to evaporative testing and a US06 is usually run per class. 
Additionally, fault conditions may be introduced on one or more of the vehicles to test the 
response of the On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) system. If you are aware of OBD enabling criteria 
which would limit our ability to evaluate these systems, please inform me. Copies of the OBD 
enabling criteria which were approved during certification should be provided if there are such 
limitations. 

We invite your representatives to be present as observers during the test program. If you 
have any questions concerning this investigation please contact me. 

Sincerely, 


Lynn Sohacki

Subject: VW Group - discussion feedback 


Hello Jim, 


Just a quick follow up on our discussion today regarding the number of test groups with similar concepts. 
I discussed this with our group and in general, the breakdowns are determined by the following factors: 


1) Factory or development group (VWX or ADX), subject to the negotiations between these groups. 

2) Emissions standard 

3) "Grouping Statistic" criteria 

4) Internal rational - for example whereas a PZEV Bin 3 might possibly be combined with a SULEV Bin 3, 
the factories could prefer distinct test groups for clarity. 


Finally, Bill Rodgers mentioned that he is in the process preparing the MY 13 certification list you asked 
about. 


Please let me know If you have any other questions.

Subject: Interpretation of In-Use GHG Provisions 

GHG In Use Test Provisions^pdf 


Hello Jim and Dave: 


This question may have come up before, but I am unable to find the answer and I have an urgent request 
for information. 


In ERA'S September 23, 2010 GHG presentation, there are a couple of slides that address in-use GHG 
requirements. I have attached these for reference. 


My basic question is, on Slide 65 what exactly is meant by the parenthetical note "full useful life only" 
following the bullets for In-use CREE standard and In-Use N20 & CH4 standards? 


Is this simply a reference that the CREE, N20 and CH4 standards are full useful life standards and vehicle 
results from lUVP testing are compared to the full useful life standards at the low-mileage and high- 
mileage test points? 


A simple explanation of the in-use test requirements for CREE, N20 and CH4 would be appreciated (i.e., 
what testing is required at each of the low-mileage and high-mileage test points and the applicable 
standard). 


Thanks, and best regards.

Hello everyone: 

I am looking forward to our meeting next week. I have been asked by one of my colleagues from 
Volkswagen AG about the possibility of extending the meeting by approximately 30 minutes. The meeting 
is currently scheduled for 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. on September 29, 2011. 

Volkswagen would like to take the opportunity to provide an introductory technical presentation on a 1.4L 
hybrid concept. The additional information would extend the meeting until 3:30 p.m. Participation by 
emission certification staff would be appreciated. 

Best regards, 

Len

These CAFE model year reports seem to be missing a few pages (when compared to the 2009 and earlier 
CAFE reports,). 

For example, they don't include: 

the data used in your calculations, ref 600.512-08(c)(l) to (c)(3); 

fuel economy for each model type (and a list of model types) included in your calculation, ref 600.512- 
08(c)(1) to (c)(3); 

Authenticity & accuracy of production data included in your calculation (signed by a vice-president or 
higher). 

For example, I can't determine what model Bentlys, Lamborghinis, & Bugattis were included in your 
calculations. 

When you get a chance, please revise your CAFE letters (adding the missing information), and email me 
copies of the revised letters and enter a pdf copies into Verify. 

I'll include the 2009 VW Truck CAFE letter as an example. 

Thanks

PHONE 248 7S4 5000 

Dear Mr. Wehrly; 

Enclosed is the manufacturer’s calculation for the 2010 final fuel economy average. This 
calculation is provided for the Volkswagen Import Passenger Car category and in 
accordance to the regulations contained in 40 CFR 600.610-93. The final CAFE value is 
based upon approved EPA fuel economy data and final production volumes for the 2010 
model year vehicles. The report has successfully been processed using the CFEIS 
system and submitted through Verify. The final Import Passenger Car CAFE value 
adjusted is 33.3 MPG. 

The attachments to this letter contain the domestic content calculation as requested in 
the EPA certification mail-out CD-92-06. The Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. 
procedure for this calculation follows the procedure outlined in 40 CFR 600.511-80. Our 
procedure is described as follows: 

• For vehicles produced outside of the NAFTA territory, the “declared value” of foreign 
components is basically, the ex factory value of each of the models which we have 
imported. The freight and insurance is added to this value and is labeled as 
“adjusted import value'. The value of U.S. components has not been excluded 
because this value is included in the declared value upon importation of the vehicles. 

The "cost of production” as defined in the regulations equates to our wholesale price 
to the dealer. 

• For vehicles produced within the NAFTA territory (Mexico), we followed the 
procedure established according to NAFTA Appendix 300-A.3, where Paragraph 1 
states: 

"For purposes of the Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975, 42 U.S.C. 

6201...the United States shall consider an automobile to be domestically 
manufactured in any model year if at least 75 percent of the cost to the manufacturer 
of such automobile is attributable to value added in Canada, Mexico or the United 


VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 002574 



States... Paragraph 1 shall apply beginning with the next model year after January 1, 
2004, where the enterprise subject to the fuel economy requirements for those 
automobiles under the CAFE Act, has not made an election under subparagraph a)." 

For purposes of paragraph 1, and according to 40 CFR 600.511-80, the ratio 
obtained in the domestic production determination was obtained from dividing the 
sum of the declared value {as defined in §600.602) of all of the imported 
components installed or included on automobiles produced within such a car line 
within a given model year plus the cost of transportation and insuring such 
components to the United States Port of entry, by the cost of production (as defined 
in §600.52) of all automobiles within such a car tine. 

The calculated results for each model are listed in the right column entitled CAFE Ratio. 

These values are clearly greater than the 0.25 ratio and therefore all Volkswagen Group 

models are determined to be in the Import category. 

If you have any questions or require additional information, please contact me or Mr. 

Richard Thomas at (248) 754-4213.

Sebastian.berenz@vwxom 


Hello Mr. Ba 


Like recently discussed, we are still In the process to finish up our high mileage program for MY2006 and 
low mileage program for MY2010. 

Since we are a little bit late, I just want to keep you informed about our activities. 


Status: 

For lUVP HM MY2006 we already tested 61 cars which are already submitted via verify. The high 
altitude part is finished and submitted too. We still have 5 more cars to do which are lined up. 

For lUVP LM MY2010 we already tested 12 cars which are also already submitted via verify. We sti 
have 10 more cars to do. 


We are working hard to get the last cars to our laboratory in Westlake Village, CA. The 10 cars for MY 
2010 will all be shipped from Michigan and some are already on the way. 


In order to be prepared for the next program, we are right now working on high mileage program 
MY2007. Customers will be contacted within the next few weeks. The plan is to get as much cars as 
possible from MY2007 by the end this year. Than we go on by the beginning of next year. 


If I don't hear anything back from you, I will proceed with the program to finish everything up. 
Please let me know if you have any questions to our activities. 


Thank you.

Just for clarity I need a little more information about the testing sequence. 


I believe that Flex-Fuel Evap tests are done with ElO and the exhaust tests with ESS. 


Is the Ethanol test sequence below correct? 


fuel change w/ElO - prep - soak / ElO FTP / ElO 2-Day Evap / fuel change w/E85 - prep - soak / ESS FTP / 
ESS Hwy/ESS US06 

Alternate (fuel change w/ESS - prep - soak / ESS FTP / ESS Hwy / ESS US06 / fuel change w/ElO - prep -

Subject: Invitation: EPA Meetings (Sep 29 09:00 AM EDT in Telephone Conference) 


To all: 


I have set up a call-in number for tomorrow's meetings with EPA, if you wish to join (I hit the send button 
too soon on the prior invitation). 

This does not require any action on the part of EPA staff other than to provide a speaker telephone. 1 
have included EPA staff for information. 


There are two meetings, starting at OSOOhr Detroit time and 1300hr Detroit time, with the call-in number 
open for the entire time (0900 - 1530hr Detroit time). 

Details: 


The following is a telephone call-in number for the EPA meetings tomorrow. 

You have been invited to attend a conference call. Please accept or reject. Details are below.

Hello Michael and Jim: 


I am not sure if our meetings tomorrow morning and afternoon will be in the same room; however, is it 
possible to have a speaker telephone in the room(s)? There are a couple of people from the VW Group in 
Germany that would like to join in the meeting. 


I will establish a conference call number and passcode 
need is a speaker phone. 


Ex. 7 


so the only 


We will also bring a portable projector, so no need to worry about that. 
Best regards.

Hello, Sebastian. 

I apologize for the mix-up. We sent out invitations to owners of the 3.2I test group and no owners of that 
vehicle responded. However, we did get responses from owners of vehicles in test group 9ADXV02.034B 
so we decided to test those instead. Unfortunately, I forgot to make a note to myself and I neglected to 
notify you. I'm sorry about that. The VIN Is correct and your dealer network is correct, it is a 2.0I

Again, I apologize for the error.

Hi, Sebastian. 

We got the car and discovered that the test group is actually 9ADXV02.03UB. Apparently, the customer 
read the label incorrectly. Sorry for the confusion.

Hello, Sebastian. 

I apologize for the mix-up. We sent out invitations to owners of the 3.2! test group and no owners of that 
vehicle responded. However, we did get responses from owners of vehicles in test group 9ADXV02.034B 
so we decided to test those instead. Unfortunately, I forgot to make a note to myself and I neglected to 
notify you. I'm sorry about that. The VIN is correct and your dealer network is correct, it is a 2.01 
vehicles. 

Again, I apologize for the error.

Hello Lynn, 

See attached the parameter sheet for the vehicle you bring in today. 

«parameters form.xlsx» 

Also I attached a fuel drain procedure. This is similar to the one we had with the 3.II confirmatory 
program. 

Since we have a start adaptation it is necessary to make sure that we are not influencing it in a negative 
way though a drain not matching strategy. 

«test procedure with fuel drain.pdf» 


Also I could see that this vehicle:! 


has an open service campaign on the Camshaft 


Ex. 6 

Adjuster. Just for your information, we take a look at the car anyways and I suggest we test it as it is and 
decide later. 


«http_eisaweb.vwoa.na.vwg_elsaweb_ctr_TPLdisplayContent_src_42_633026_al51124.pdf» 

We will be at your lab after lunch today and explain everything to the URS guys. 

Let me know if you have any questions. 

Thank you very much.

Originai pubiication 


This RVU has been proactively released to prevent the following condition from occurring in the vehicle: 

2.0 T Engine camshaft adjuster replacement. 

This Required Vehicle Update (RVU) is in effect until removed. 

Vehicle must meet all of the following criteria: 

• Procedure is valid only for vehicles that show the 15D6 code in the ElsaWeb Campaign/Action Information 
screen on the day of repair. 

• Vehicle must be within the Limited New Vehicle Warranty. 

• Procedure must be performed within the allotted time frame stated in this Technical Service Bulletin.

Hello Lynn, 

See attached the parameter sheet for the vehicle you bring in today. 

«parameters form.xlsx» 

Also I attached a fuel drain procedure. This is similar to the one we had with the 3.11 confirmatory 
program. 

Since we have a start adaptation It is necessary to make sure that we are not influencing it in a negative 
way though a drain not matching strategy. 

«test procedure with fuel dr^.in.njdf>_>-- 

Also I could see that this vehlc[ Ex . 6 jhas an open service campaign on the Camshaft 

Adjuster. Just for your Information, we take a look at the car anyways and I suggest we test it as it is and 
decide later. 

«http_elsaweb.vwoa.na.vwg_elsaweb_ctr_TPLdisplayContent_src_42_633026_al51124.pdf»

Hello, Sebastian. 

I apologize for the mix-up. We sent out invitations to owners of the 
3.21 test group and no owners of that vehicle responded. However, we 
did get responses from owners of vehicles in test group 9ADXV02.034B so 
we decided to test those instead. Unfortunately, I forgot to make a

Hello Lynn, 

Attached are all the information you needed. 

«parameters form.xlsx» 

One more thing regarding this vehicle. It has a Kessy-System, which is a keyless-go system to open up the 
car and start it when the key is in range. 

I told all that Marc. The problem is that all the ECUs for the different systems in the car are not shutting 
down when the key is in range. 

That has an impact on the battery. 

What you want to do is either put a battery charger on it while store it open or close the car and keep the 
key away from the vehicle. 

Marc know that already and I think he takes care of it. 

Let me know if you need any further Information.

We got the car and discovered that the test group is actually

Sorry for the confusion.

HellOj Sebastian. 


I apologize for the mix-up. We sent out invitations to owners of the 

3.21 test group and no owners of that vehicle responded. Howeverj we 

did get responses from owners of vehicles in test group 9ADXV02.034B 
so 


we decided to test those instead. Unfortunatelyj I forgot to make a 
note to myself and I neglected to notify you. I'm sorry about that. 
The VIN is correct and your dealer network is correct^ it is a 2.01

Hello LynOj 

I reviewed the data for the car you want to bring in tomorrow. 

As far as you informed uSj you wanted to test cars of the test group 


9ADXV03.23LC with a 3.21 engine MY2009. 


The vehicle with VIN: 



is a 2.01 Audi A4 MY2009 and 


wouldn^’t match into this test group. That is what our dealer network 


tells me. 


Please verify the VIN and let me know if I have wrong data. Let me 
know 


if you need anything from our side. 
Thank you very much. 

Best regards

Subject: VW Group Revised Evap Standard 

william.rodQers@vw.com 


Jim, 

I revised the evap. standards in Verify and in the Initial Application for the 2012 Audi Q5 Hybrid, test 
group CADXT02.02HUB. We inadvertently used the heavier weight LDT LEV2 evap. standards in the Initial 
Application . This vehicle is due to be confirmed on Nov 2nd , so Tm not sure if you might have to make a 
change on your end to reflect the correct standards as the result of our change. 


Also, can you tell me if the Nov 2nd confirmatory testing is expected to be completed in one week, 
considering the evap. test? 


Thanks, 


Bill Rodgers

Subject: Availability for Brief Conference Call 


Hello Jim and Steve: 


Audi will soon be delivering a hybrid vehicle for confirmatory testing at ERA. I left each of you a telephone 
message asking about your availability for a brief telephone conference with Audi to go over the test 
requirements. 


Jim -1 understand that you had a conversation with 
of this week. 


Ex. 7 I 


and that you are booked for the remainder 


As a starting point, I proposed that we have the conference call next Monday (October 24, 2011) at 0900 
hr. I think that 30 minutes will be sufficient. A morning time is preferable since participants in Germany 
are six hours ahead of us. 


Please suggest an alternative, if this does not fit your schedules. Once confirmed, I will set up a local ca 
in number. 


Best regards.

I have been in contact with Lothar Rech at Audi AG. The specific reason for the proposed conference call 
is to confirm; 1.) the understanding of the slides that were sent to you by [ Ex. 7 [copy attached for 
extra measure!), and 2.) that the hybrid vehicle, as described, can be tested on the dynamometer at ERA. 


If everything is clear and understandable, there may not be a need for the call. Audi has no further points 
to discuss at this time. 


Please let me know if there are any open questions from your side.

Hello Jim, 


Audi did have one other question. In order to plan the trip for the engineer who will accompany the test 
vehicle, Audi would like to know the order of the testing. 


When the evap test will be performed may influence how long the engineer must stay here. 


Based on the Wednesday test date, will the evap test be performed over the weekend or can all of the 
testing be accomplished by Friday? 


Best regards.

They will run the Evap test first. There is a good chance it could complete by friday if there are no 
problems. Its less likely that I will have the data results before monday though.

RE: EPA/Audi Meeting Report 


Hello Jim, 

Audi did have one other question. In order to plan the trip for the engineer who will accompany the test 
vehicle, Audi would like to know the order of the testing. 

When the evap test will be performed may influence how long the engineer must stay here. 

Based on the Wednesday test date, will the evap test be performed over the weekend or can all of the 
testing be accomplished by Friday? 

Best regards.

robert.hart@vw.com 


Hello Jim, 


Lamborghini's first flex-fuel car Is scheduled for MY 2013. They have some questions since they have no 
previous experience with flex-fuel vehicle confirmatory tests at the ERA. 

Due to the number of possible fuel changes - between gasoline, ElO and ESS fuels, Lamborghini would like 
to know the order tests are performed at the ERA when a flex-fuel car is tested with evap tests included. 


I think you told me that testing will start with whatever fuel type is in the flex-fuel vehicle when It arrives 
and it doesn't matter which one it is. Does it make the most sense to start with gasoline? 


Can Lamborghini request extra preconditioning between the switch from E10/E85 to gasoline to purge the 
ethanol from the fuel system? 


If evap test confirmation is included, will both gasoline and ElO tests be performed at the ERA? 


Ex. 6

had the chance to look at the following questions?

Subject: Question from Lamborghini 

Hello Jim, 

Lamborghini's first flex-fuel car is scheduled for MY 2013. They have some questions since they have no 
previous experience with flex-fuel vehicle confirmatory tests at the EPA. 

Due to the number of possible fuel changes - between gasoline, ElO and ESS fuels, Lamborghini would like 
to know the order tests are performed at the EPA when a flex-fuel car is tested with evap tests included. 

1) I think you told me that testing will start with whatever fuel type is in the flex-fuel vehicle when it 
arrives and it doesn't matter which one it is. Does it make the most sense to start with gasoline? i believe 
Ben Haynes in the lab has a practical preference for starting with gasoline first to minimize the ESS we 
have to drain and scrap. 

2) Can Lamborghini request extra preconditioning between the switch from E10/E85 to gasoline to 

1

2017-FFP 002710 



purge the ethanol from the fuel system? Yes. 

3) If evap test confirmation is included, will both gasoline and ElO tests be performed at the EPA? We currently 
don't Evap test with ElO but plan to In the future with the new shed. Definitely not in this round of testing if its in 
the next 3 months. 

I will be on vacation starting tomorrow. Please Cc Bill Rodgers (Wllllam.rodgers@vw.com) on your reply.

I looked at the handout and didn't have any questions. I forwarded it to the lab and they didn't either. 


My only concern is that the lab has a cell down for upgrading and scheduling nnay fall behind a bit. It 
may get pushed back a day.

Hello Bob; 


Ex. 6 


I just wanted to find out if you are nearing completion of an EPA C02 5-cycle label calculator. Do you 
have an estimate of when you might have something that you will share with manufacturers? 


We have to begin requesting bag C02 data from our factories for the 2013 new label and I want to be sure 
our 5-cycle calculations agree with the EPA's calculations. 


Best regards, 
Richard

Dennis Reineke will call you on this. It's clearly not a US car but he has the means to track it down. 

I think it's a "old-style" Beetle from Mexico but I'm not 100% sure. I've heard of these being imported in 
pieces and later titled as kit cars somehow.

Bill, Illinois'State I/M testing has a VW that appears to have no OBD2 results. ITs listed as a 1997 
Volkswagen. They say it is a Beetle, possibly imported from Mexico. Can you look up the VIN # and see 
what it is? Since its possbily from Mexico , I'm wondering if its a New or Old beetle.

RE: 

Hello Jim, 



TheVIN Illinois has provided describes a 1997 Classic Beetle (old). Mexican produced Beetles were never 
imported for sale by Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. This vehicles as produced in Mexico does not 
meet U.S. emissions or safety standard for the 197 model year. 


The VIN breaks down as follows: 


3 VW - WMI - Volkswagen de Mexico 

ZZZll - VDS - ZZZ are filler characters, 11 represents the model type = old, classic or air cooled Beetle 
V - MY - 1997 
M - Plant - Pueblo 


Please contact me or Bill Rodgers if you have additional questions.

Bill, Illinois'State I/M testing has a VW that appears to have no OBD2 results. ITs listed as a 1997 Volkswagen. 
They say it is a Beetle, possibly imported from Mexico. Can you look up the VIN # and see what it is? Since its 
possbily from Mexico , I'm wondering if its a New or Old beetle.

william.rodQers@vw.com 


Hello Jim, 

I have uploaded several running changes related to the addition of Beetle Convertible FEDVs to four 2012 
model year test groups (listed below). Certificate requests for each test group have also been submitted 
to allow the new carline to be added to the Certificates. 

Test Groups: 

CVWXV02.5259 

CVWXV02.5U35 

CVWXV02.03PA 

CADXJ02.03UA 


In one case, I was unable to process a new Test Group input file in Verify due to Verify release 9 issues 
related to EPA confirmed test results. A Verify help desk ticket has been opened to have EPA test results 
resubmitted with CREE/Opt-CREE values. As the result, the following Application revision was submitted 
without an updated Section 7 CSI to reflect the added Beetle Convertible. This application will be 
corrected in the Update coming soon, assuming the EPA test issues are resolved by that time. I hope this 
will not delay the approval of the revised certificate for this test group. Please let me know if you have 
any questions or concerns. 


Application to be revised:

Subject: Question from Lamborghini 

Hello Jim, 

Lamborghini's first flex-fuel car is scheduled for MY 2013. They have some questions since they have no previous 
experience with flex-fuel vehicle confirmatory tests at the ERA. 

Due to the number of possible fuel changes - between gasoline, ElO and ESS fuels, Lamborghini would like to know 
the order tests are performed at the ERA when a flex-fuel car is tested with evap tests included. 

1) I think you told me that testing will start with whatever fuel type is in the flex-fuel vehicle when it arrives and 
it doesn't matter which one it is. Does it make the most sense to start with gasoline? i believe Ben Haynes in the 
lab has a practical preference for starting with gasoline first to minimize the ESS we have to drain and scrap. 

2) Can Lamborghini request extra preconditioning between the switch from E10/ES5 to gasoline to purge the 
ethanol from the fuel system? Yes. 

3) If evap test confirmation is included, will both gasoline and ElO tests be performed at the ERA? We currently 
don't Evap test with ElO but plan to in the future with the new shed. Definitely not in this round of testing if its in 
the next 3 months.

I happened to talk to Ben about E85 testing and he said he prefers flex-fuel vehicles arrive with ESS first 
so they don't need as much eSS fuel to do the switchover.

OFFIGE: OF 
AIF? AND RAOIATION 


Dear Mr. Reineke 


The Environmental Protection Agency will test a 2009 model-year Audi test-group in our surveillance 
test-program. Tire group shown in Enclosure 1 will be tested at the National Vehicle and Fuel Emissions 
Laboratory in Ann Arbor, Michigan. 'Lest results wliich exceed applicable standards may lead to 
CO n fi nnatoi*y testing. 

A sample of three or more vehicles will be procured. Maintenance will consist of an iinder-hood-' 
inspection and review of on-board computer codes. The federal test procedure and highway cple will 
follow a single LA-4 preconditioning cycle. If this test-group contains models which are equipped with 
4WD or AWD, the vehicles may be tested in eitiier of these modes. 

One vehicle may be subjected to evaporative testing and a US06 is usually run per class, Additionally, 
fault conditions may be introduced on one or more of the vehicles to test the response of the On-Board 
Diagnostics (OBD) system. If you are aware of OBD enabling criteria which would limit our ability to 
evaluate these systems, please inform me. Copies of the OBD etiabling criteria which were approved

Bill I left you a voice mail but the answer to this issue is to call Bob Peavyhouse (X4814) or Karen 
Danzeisen (4444) and tell them you have a epa lab test that needs to be manually re-processed for CREE 
calculation.

Hello Lynn, 

Thank you very much for letting me know. 

Please inform me when the first car comes in and I will check the car in. 


I have another question concerning the 2.01 Audi test group you tested. 
I still haven't heard anything about the last car that you tested;

Hello Bob and Jim, 

1) The active Certification request for test group CVWXV02.5259 will have to be denied by EPA. It can 
wait until Monday if need be. 

Error: There cannot be a pending certificate request for this Test Group (CR-2) and Evaporative/Refueling 
Family (CR-3) in the system. The certificate must either be issued or denied before a new certificate 
request with CR-0.5 (Process Code) equal to 'N' (New) can be submitted. 


2) I've asked our Porsche contact to unlock their certificates you referenced below BPRXT03.0CHD and 
CPRXT03.0CHD. They use our VW Touareg Hybrid tests for their Cayenne Hybrid. We will let you know 
when that happens. 


3) CBEXV06.0501 has now been unlocked.

Hello Bob, 

We have been referred to you by Jim Snyder to help resolve a problem with certifying model year 2012 and 
carryover 2013 test groups. In order to correct the problem we are requesting that you to re-process the follow 
ERA confirmatory FTP and Hwy tests to include CREE and OPT-CREE calculated results in Verify. The two tests 
underlined below are of immediate importance and are holding up current certification.

Jim, 

I have uploaded the re-revised Application and submitted a certification request for the test group 
CVWXV02.5259. You should now be able to process a certificate to include the Beetle Convertible carline. 

Of interest is the newly calculated Opt-CREE does not appear in the Section 7 CSI after Bob Peavyhouse 
included it in the EPA tests mentioned below. Although not a show stopper for now, it would be a good 
reference to have for the future.

Hi Mike, 


The EDIRs are posted on http://www.regulations.gov The best way I found to locate them is to 
type EDIR into the keyword search bar (which will only pull up some of them) then click on the Open 
Docket Folder link on any one of them and that should take you to the "Light-Duty Vehicle Emission 
Defect Information Reports" folder.

Hi Jim, 

As we discussed earlier today, I recently discovered that whenjEx. zjeprocessed the EPA tests in order to 
get CREE calculations working we lost the cert levels and standards for each testgroup for which the test 
has been used. What we didn't realize was that when EPA staff performs a correction to an EPA test the 
Testgroup does *not* automatically get reprocessed as it does when a manufacturer submits a correction 
to their own tests. Therefore, we need to request VW to reprocess all the applicable testgroups shown in 
the chart next to the tests which we modified: 


In total there are 11 unique testgroups that need reprocessing. If you were to look at a CSI Report for any 
of these testgroups right now you would see that the standards/cert levels section are blank for the tests 
corresponding tests. I'm pretty sure this is an exhaustive list for VW, but if there are any other times that 
you recall where LOD may have submitted a correction to a test after the most recent version of the 
testgroup, then there might be a similar problem with it. 

Please note that the manufacturer will need to unlock the test in the Cert Request module before 
attempting to reprocess the Testgroups. Hopefully they have saved the most recent XML for each 
testgroup so that all they would need to do is change the process code from New to Correction (if 
necessary). Once they've reviewed the CSI reports after the testgroups have been reprocessed and 
confirmed that the tests once again have standards and cert levels they should go back to the Cert 
Request module and lock all the testgroups.

Let me know if you have any questions or would like me to work with the VW staff. Also, a couple of these tests 
are used for Porsche tests so I don't know If they are also processed by VW staff or If we need to contact Porsche 
as well.

and found that I left off testgroup CVWXV02.5259 from the original list (see attached) for tests 
BVWX91000666 and BVWX91000667. Here is the new list including that change. Everything else remains 
the same. 


Ideally VW could reprocess by Monday so that I could begin processing a complete update for the Green 
Vehicle Guide. It would be helpful to know if that's possible. If they have all the XML files for these 
testgroups and the available time, then it should be possible. 

Thanks, 

Karen

Hi Jim, 

As we discussed earlier today, I recently discovered that when Bob reprocessed the EPA tests in order to get 
CREE calculations working we lost the cert levels and standards for each testgroup for which the test has been 
used. What we didn't realize was that when EPA staff performs a correction to an EPA test the Testgroup does 
*not* automatically get reprocessed as it does when a manufacturer submits a correction to their own tests. 
Therefore, we need to request VW to reprocess all the applicable testgroups shown in the chart next to the tests 
which we modified: 


In total there are 11 unique testgroups that need reprocessing. If you were to look at a CSI Report for any of these 
testgroups right now you would see that the standards/cert levels section are blank for the tests corresponding 
tests. I'm pretty sure this is an exhaustive list for VW, but if there are any other times that you recall where LOD 
may have submitted a correction to a test after the most recent version of the testgroup, then there might be a 
similar problem with it. 

Please note that the manufacturer will need to unlock the test in the Cert Request module before attempting to 
reprocess the Testgroups. Hopefully they have saved the most recent XML for each testgroup so that all they 
would need to do is change the process code from New to Correction (if necessary). Once they've reviewed the 
CSI reports after the testgroups have been reprocessed and confirmed that the tests once again have standards 
and cert levels they should go back to the Cert Request module and lock all the testgroups. 

Let me know if you have any questions or would like me to work with the VW staff. Also, a couple of these tests 
are used for Porsche tests so I don't know if they are also processed by VW staffer if we need to contact Porsche 
as well.

Jim, 

This was already done, so perhaps there is another issue here. 

CVWXV02.5259 is the test group that started this issue because we needed to add a model and couldn't 
process a test group input without the LOD data present. The test group input was successfully 
reprocessed on Nov 28th after Bob made his changes to the tests. I will hold off reprocessing anything 
until we hear back on this.

Jim, 

This was already done, so perhaps there is another issue here. 

CVWXV02.5259 is the test group that started this issue because we needed to add a model and couldn't process a 
test group input without the LOD data present. The test group input was successfully reprocessed on Nov 28th 
after Bob made his changes to the tests. I will hold off reprocessing anything until we hear back on this.

Hi Jim, 

Just after you left I checked over a new and improved query result that 1 came up with this afternoon and found 
that I left off testgroup CVWXV02.5259 from the original list (see attached) for tests BVWX91000666 and 
BVWX91000667. Here Is the new list Including that change. Everything else remains the same. 


Ideally VW could reprocess by Monday so that I could begin processing a complete update for the Green Vehicle 
Guide. It would be helpful to know if that's possible. If they have all the XML files for these testgroups and the 
available time, then it should be possible. 

Thanks, 

Karen

Let me know if you have any questions or would like me to work with the VW staff. Also, a couple of these tests 
are used for Porsche tests so I don't know if they are also processed by VW staff or if we need to contact Porsche

You're right. This one appears to be ok. I was selecting these testgroups based on the submission date 
of the test information being greater than the last submission date of the testgroup. As it turns out, I 
should have used 'greater or equal to' because the dates are not stored to the hour and minute -- only the 
month, day and year. Even so, when I looked at the most recent CSI Report on our Verify portal the cert 
levels and standards weren't there, but that may just indicate a problem with our portal because the cert 
levels do appear when I look directly into our database. 

Sorry for the confusion on this one.

Re: Durability Procedure Carryover 


HijEx. yjl believe 1 mentioned in our last phone call that Arvon Mitcham has moved to a new position in 
the ASD division. Each Cert Rep is now responsible for approving any alternate durability procedures for 
their respective manufacturers. I read your letter requesting approval for 2013MY. It refers to a 
document describing the procedure from 2006. Since I'm starting on this rather fresh, I would like you 
to sent me the relevant documents, or latest version of them, that describe the cycle and its correlation to 
the SRC aging. 


Have you supplied us any data recently to support the accuracy of the process versus actual aging or the 
SRC, such as the in-use emissions data? I would like to see what you have. Let's talk about this and what 
you have before you start doing anything. I'm not necessarily expecting anything on this for Tuesday's 
meeting. 

IknowVW uses the SRC for Diesel test groups. I also know that some test groups (Lamborghini only?) 
use a Bench Cycle, Please clarify which groups use the VM_ADP and which the Bench Cycle. 


I won't be in Friday but I will be available next week. Look forward to seeing you Tuesday.

Hello Bob and Jim, 


I am having trouble re-processing the test group xml for Bentley CBEXV06.0501. I believe you that EPA 
will need to re-process tests BBEX91000698 and BBEX91000699 so that CREE can be calculated. 


I requested a verify report for the two above tests and there were no CREE tags. 


The message 1 receive after my attempt is as follows: 


Transaction Status Identifier: REJECTED 

Transaction Message Text: LD-CERT-TG-BR189 - If the Model Year (TG-6) is greater than or equal to 2012 
and if the Exhaust Test Number (TG-202.5) has a Test 5-Cycle Category (TI-45) of 'FTP75' or 'HWY', then 
that Exhaust Test Number (TG-202.5) must have a Rounded Adjusted CREE (TI-19.4) or Rounded Adjusted 
OPT-CREE (TI-19.8). The test number specified will need to be resubmitted to allow Verify to perform this 
calculation. (Test Number: BBEX91000699)

As we discussed earlier today, I recently discovered that when Bob reprocessed the ERA tests in order to get 
CREE calculations working we lost the cert levels and standards for each testgroup for which the test has been 
used. What we didn't realize was that when ERA staff performs a correction to an ERA test the Testgroup does 
*not* automatically get reprocessed as it does when a manufacturer submits a correction to their own tests. 
Therefore, we need to request VW to reprocess all the applicable testgroups shown in the chart next to the tests 
which we modified: 


In total there are 11 unique testgroups that need reprocessing. If you were to look at a CSI Report for any of these 
testgroups right now you would see that the standards/cert levels section are blank for the tests corresponding 
tests. I'm pretty sure this is an exhaustive list for VW, but if there are any other times that you recall where LOD 
may have submitted a correction to a test after the most recent version of the testgroup, then there might be a 
similar problem with it. 

Rlease note that the manufacturer will need to unlock the test in the Cert Request module before attempting to 
reprocess the Testgroups. Hopefully they have saved the most recent XML for each testgroup so that all they 
would need to do is change the process code from New to Correction (if necessary). Once they've reviewed the 
CSI reports after the testgroups have been reprocessed and confirmed that the tests once again have standards 
and cert levels they should go back to the Cert Request module and lock all the testgroups. 

Let me know if you have any questions or would like me to work with the VW staff. Also, a couple of these tests 
are used for Rorsche tests so I don't know if they are also processed by VW staffer if we need to contact Rorsche 
as well.

Hello Bill, 

I checked again after lunch and nothing yet. My guess is Monday. Hybrids still take longer. I'll keep on 
looking though and forward the data as soon as I get it. 

Best regards, 

Vince Mazaitis

Hello Vince, 

I saw the test results on Verify. Would you mind sending the lab results pages? They are much easier to 
digest.
