william.rodqers@vw.com 


Hello Jim, 

I submitted new FEDV tests and the decision information to Verify for the VID: VW462_8-0062_08 
Configuration 2. A manufacturer retest is required for the Highway test due to High Fuel Economy for the 
ETW. 


These new tests and VID configuration are being used for the 2013 Volkswagen CC 2.0 TFSI manual 6- 
speed which was recently certified in the carryover test group DVWXJ02.03UA. The new data is due to a 
transmission final drive gearing change effective at the start of 2013 production. It was initially expected 
that this change would happen later in the year, but instead it will be in place for the entire production 
run. A revised Initial Application has been uploaded to Verify to reflect the change. 


A similar notice is forthcoming for the Bin 3 / PZEV version of this model in test group DVWXV02.03PA.

Hello Jim, 

I submitted the last decision information today and the revised application is forthcoming related to the 
change described below in my previous message. This submission is for the Volkswagen VID 464_00042, 
configuration 1. A manufacturer retest is required for the Highway test due to High Fuel Economy for the 
ETW. 


These tests are being used to represent the T2B3/ SULEV2 version of the 2013 Volkswagen CC 2.0 TFSI 
manual 6-speed. The same final drive ratio change applies as described below. Please provide your 
decision for both at your earliest convenience.

8,500 GVWR standards). I will update Verify to reflect the correct LDT (6,000 GVWR and under) 
standards. It also looks like I need to correct the curb weight in Section 12 of the application so I will 
include that in the revised application. Thanks for the feedback.

Hi Jim, 

We have confirmed that the test data is acceptable, please release the vehicle for pick-up. 


My message below regarding the standards in Verify is incorrect. After further investigation, I found that 
the Evap standards in the Verify system test group information were corrected on October 13, 2011 to 
reflect the LDT (6,000 GVWR and under) standards. At that time we submitted a revised Initial 
Application with new Sec. 7 CSI named CBI_CADXT02.0HUB_APP_INI_R01.PDF. It appears the erroneous 
information you have is based on the initial submission. 


Thanks,

Let Ben Haynes know when you decide when you will pick it up. 734-214-4261 

It still shows the wrong limit in at least some parts of Verify. I 'll have to look around and see where it 
wasn't updated.

Okay Bob, no problem. Thanks for incorporating it into the calculator. 


I realize that you are a busy guy, sorry to keep pestering you. On another related subject, were you able 
to make any progress to the Volkswagen Group 2011 CAFE file like the file you sent me last year for the 
final 2010 CAFE? See attached e-mail. 


I have a colleague working on gathering all the final sales numbers to prepare the 2011 VWGoA final CAFE 
report and I want to begin working on that as soon as possible and before I have to begin calculating 2013 
fuel economy labels. Our IT people are working vigorously to create a system to support the new 2013 
fuel economy labels.

Subject: CAFE and the custom data 


Hello Bob; 

Earlier this year you provided me with a data file that you configured to put all the general label index files 
together for the 2010 final CAFE. I could open it in Verify and change the volumes to add the final numbers and 
also eliminate tests numbers not needed for the CAFE (i.e.: Cold Co, SC03, US06). This was a great time saver as 
you know and I wondered if this is something that you will perform for us again next year when we prepare the 
2011 model year Final CAFE Reports? 

Please let me know your thoughts, as we have finished testing release 9 in house, without any major difficulties. 
This one point came up in loading only a few indexes into the CAFE section. 

If not, then I must have our guys here put together a program to perform this task on the label indexes. 

Thanks,

Michael, 

Please provide OBD threshold test results from the new 2013 OBD system. Since this is a carry-over 
system, and you have removed the secondary air system, which can significantly reduce the tailpipe 
emission levels, the emission and OBD threshold data generated for the 2012 system is no longer valid. 

Please provide documentation showing that new OBD threshold data was generated for each of the major 
monitors without the secondary air system and that the MIL set for those monitors at or below the 1.5x 
threshold. Provide detailed test data including test vehicle IDs, test numbers and test dates that the OBD 
data was generated. (This can be in table form, doesn't have to be actual dyno data). 

Once you can show me that all new OBD threshold testing data was generated for this new system, I 
won't have any issues approving this OBD system.

Hi, Sebastian. 

We are having a difficult time identifying vehicles for class R104. We received positive responses from 
owners of these vehicles but I'm having a hard time determining the tets group to which these vehicles 
belong. Would you please let me know the test groups for these vehicles? 

Thank you,

Hello Jim, 

I submitted the T2B5/ULEV VW CC tests and Decision Information we discussed this morning regarding a 
test data resubmission as 2013 model year, intended to replace the 2008 model year data you previously 
waived. The new Vehicle ID is: VW462 8-0062/13_Configuration 0. Please waive the confirmatory testing 
so I can enter the manufacturer confirmatory HWY test we did. 


There will be another similar resubmission coming for the corresponding T2B3/SULEV version of this car.

Dear Mr. Giles, 

Thank you for the ORVR application below. I have a few questions before 
I forward the application to my team members: there are several 
references to Bugatti in the application. Is this family identical to a 
Bugatti family? Items 3 and 4 specifically mention Bugatti. What is 
the connection with Bugatti and this VW evap family?

Hello Jim, 

Mike Giles is out today so I am forwarding this information in reply to your questions regarding the 
Lamborghini Aventador with Start&Stop technology, test group DNLXV06.5L83. 


We have confirmed the following: 


1) Production vehicles will have a button to deactivate/activate the Start&Stop operation on the driver 
command. 


2) The strategy is DEFAULT ON (i.e. every time you start the engine, the Start&Stop system is enabled, 
independently on the status at key off). 


3) The test vehicle is a pre-production unit and does not have the button installed, it is instead 
programmed to remain in Start&Stop ON mode. This is based on the expectation that tests are to be 
performed in that mode, if you chose to confirm this vehicle, please let us know if it is vital that a driver 
activated switch be installed in the test vehicle?

Subject: SUBJECT: Evaporative durability aging fuel for gasoline vehicles 


Dr. Kohnen, 

Background: As you know, for evaporative durability programs, the provisions of 40 CFR 86.1824-08, 
require that the service accumulation fuel "contains ethanol in, at least, the highest concentration 
permissible in gasoline under federal law and that is commercially available in any state in the United 
States. Unless otherwise approved by the Administrator, the manufacturer must determine the 
appropriate ethanol concentration by selecting the highest legal concentration commercially available 
during the calendar year before the one in which the manufacturer begins its mileage accumulation." 

This requirement applies mostly to whole vehicle evaporative durability programs. For evaporative bench 
aging programs, aging procedures are required to be "designed using good engineering judgment, to 
evaluate the emission deterioration of evaporative control systems" including any deterioration caused by 
the effects of in-use fuels (including ethanol content) on the evaporative system; ref. 40 CFR 86.1824- 
08(d) and (e). 

Status of E15 in-use fuel: As of November 15, 2011, E15 has been approved by EPA, but has not yet been 
registered with EPA (and therefore was not yet legal for distribution or for sale as a transportation fuel at 
that time). See http://www.epa.gov/otaq/regs/fuels/additive/el5/. 

Manufacturer's evaporative durability programs: I'm thinking that most manufacturers will be proactive 
regarding the ethanol content of their evaporative service accumulation/bench aging fuel. For example, 
I'm thinking that some manufacturers may have already have begun using E15 (or higher) evaporative 
durability fuel or will soon begin using it, especially for new evaporative families which are expected to be 
carried over for several years. [Note: I'm referring to the evaporative service accumulation/bench aging 
fuel only, not the evaporative test fuel.] 

Questions: When you get a chance, please email us the following information: 

1. Please describe what type of evaporative durability program(s) you are using for 2013 

evaporative families, e.g. whole vehicle, bench aging, or both. If both, please provide the approximate 

1 


VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 002995 



percentage of each. 

2. Please describe your plans to phase in the use of E15 (or higher) for evaporative durability programs. If 
possible, please provide the ethanol content you intend to use for 2013, 2014 and 2015 model year evaporative 
durability programs. 

For example, your response could indicate that "For the 2013 model year we will use bench aging evaporative 
durability programs, only. For the 2013 model year, we expect to have 5 evaporative/refueling families, of which 4 
are carryover and will simulate the evaporative durability effects of E10 and one will simulate the evaporative 
durability effects of E15" with similar statements for 2014 and 2015 model year. 

Thanks

Since the default is enabled, it resets to enabled, and its a low volume Lamborghini, I don't see a need to 
test with it disabled. If this was a more typical volume vehicle I would first require more info on the 
enablement parameters and that you to bring a sample vehicle for us to evaluate (like the Audis). 

I would still like a list from them of the parameters and settings that enable/disable the feature.

Since the default is enabled, it resets to enabled, and its a low volume Lamborghini, I don't see a need to 
test with it disabled. Ifthiswasa more typical volume vehicle I would first require more info on the 
enablement parameters and that you to bring a sample vehicle for us to evaluate (like the Audis). 

I would still like a list from them of the parameters and settings that enable/disable the feature.

Hello Jim, 

Mike Giles is out today so I am forwarding this information in reply to your questions regarding the

VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 002999 



Lamborghini Aventador with Start&Stop technology, test group DNLXV06.5L83. 


We have confirmed the following: 

1) Production vehicles will have a button to deactivate/activate the Start&Stop operation on the driver command. 

2) The strategy is DEFAULT ON (i.e. every time you start the engine, the Start&Stop system is enabled, 
independently on the status at key off). 

3) The test vehicle is a pre-production unit and does not have the button installed, it is instead programmed to 
remain in Start&Stop ON mode. This is based on the expectation that tests are to be performed in that mode. If 
you chose to confirm this vehicle, please let us know if it is vital that a driver activated switch be installed in the 
test vehicle?

william.rodqers@ vw.com 


Hello Jim, 

I've submitted 8 Certificate Requests covering the (4) 2013 Volkswagen 2.5L test groups listed below. 
There is no rush on these considering the market introduction date is June. 


These requests are all carryovers based on 2012 test groups with no new tests or technical changes. The 
only difference from 2012 is that we chose to separate them into 4 (transmission specific) test groups for 
2013 , i.e., 2 for automatic models and 2 for manual models. This was done for (MSAT) Cold NMHC 
Standard purposes. See below:

Hello Jim / Steve, 


Regarding the confirmatory test for the Lamborghini Aventador (vehicle /Config. LB83-DSSCD / 0), the 
original availability date supplied in the D.l. request was March 14th. However, we were just informed 
that this date would need to be pushed back approximately 2 weeks. 


I should have a firm date soon but wanted to let you know in case scheduling was underway. If it makes 
sense at this stage to correct this date in the Dl, let me know. 


Thanks, 

Mike

Hello Lynn, 

Thank you very much. 

I checked the values and the test looks pretty good to me. It passed the federal and California standards. 
Let me know if you have any questions. 

Thank you very much.

Hello Jim, 

I've submitted 8 Certificate Requests covering the (4) 2013 Volkswagen 2.5L test groups listed below. 
There is no rush on these considering the market introduction date is June. 

These requests are all carryovers based on 2012 test groups with no new tests or technical changes. The 
only difference from 2012 is that we chose to separate them into 4 (transmission specific) test groups for 
2013 , i.e., 2 for automatic models and 2 for manual models. This was done for (MSAT) Cold NMHC 
Standard purposes. See below:

It happens to be a 2009 VW Eos test vehicle that's been around a while that we recently tested to

Subject: RE: SUBJECT: Evaporative durability aging fuel for gasoline vehicles 

Hello Dave: 

Dr. kohnen asked me to look into your questions regarding evaporative emission durability aging for 
gasoline engines. I have contacted the factories. The response that I received is provided on behalf of the 
entire Volkswagen Group. I have repeated your questions for clarity. 

1. Please describe what type of evaporative durability program(s) you are using for 2013 evaporative 
families, e.g. whole vehicle, bench aging, or both. If both, please provide the approximate percentage of 
each. 

Response: The Volkswagen Group uses both, bench aging and whole vehicle durability procedure. 40 
percent of the ORVR families are using whole-vehicle aging plus bench-aging and 60 percent have been 
bench-aged only. 

2. Please describe your plans to phase in the use of E15 (or higher) for evaporative durability programs. If 
possible, please provide the ethanol content you intend to use for 2013, 2014 and 2015 model year 
evaporative durability programs. 

Response: For model year 2013, Volkswagen will continue using a combination of bench-aging only and 
whole vehicle durability procedures plus bench testing. Volkswagen, as a group, is using commercial fuel 
for the aging procedures, which contains E10. Certification test fuels for the SHED and refueling test are 
according the current fuel specification regulations (EO). Volkswagen will carry-over 23 evaporative 
emission/ORVR families to model year 2013 and certify two new evaporative emission/ORVR families for 
model year 2013. New evaporative emission/ORVR families to be certified in 2014 and subsequent model 
years will continue to use commercial fuel according to the field specification in effect (e.g., E15). For the 
carry-over families in model year 2013 and for later model years, Volkswagen conducted an engineering 
evaluation to determine the effect on aging if an ethanol content higher than E10 is used for the aging 
procedures, to cover ethanol content up to E15 in the market. The engineering results show that ethanol 
has no impact on the gradient of aging over time and therefore has no impact on the deterioration 
factors. 

Please let me know if you have any further questions. 

Best regards,

provisions of 40 CFR 86.1824-08, require that the service accumulation 
fuel "contains ethanol in, at least, the highest concentration 
permissible in gasoline under federal law and that is commercially 
available in any state in the United States. Unless otherwise approved 
by the Administrator, the manufacturer must determine the appropriate 
ethanol concentration by selecting the highest legal concentration 
commercially available during the calendar year before the one in which 
the manufacturer begins its mileage accumulation." This requirement 
applies mostly to whole vehicle evaporative durability programs. For 
evaporative bench aging programs, aging procedures are required to be 
"designed using good engineering judgment, to evaluate the emission 
deterioration of evaporative control systems" including any 
deterioration caused by the effects of in-use fuels (including ethanol 
content) on the evaporative system; ref. 40 CFR 86.1824-08(d) and (e).

Status of E15 in-use fuel: As of November 15, 2011, E15 has been 
approved by EPA, but has not yet been registered with EPA (and therefore 
was not yet legal for distribution or for sale as a transportation fuel 
at that time). See http://www.epa.gov/otaq/regs/fuels/additive/el5/. 


Manufacturer's evaporative durability programs: I'm thinking that most 
manufacturers will be proactive regarding the ethanol content of their 
evaporative service accumulation/bench aging fuel. For example, I'm 
thinking that some manufacturers may have already have begun using E15 
(or higher) evaporative durability fuel or will soon begin using it, 
especially for new evaporative families which are expected to be carried 
over for several years. [Note: I'm referring to the evaporative service 
accumulation/bench aging fuel only, not the evaporative test fuel.] 


Questions: When you get a chance, please email us the following 
information: 


1. Please describe what type of evaporative durability program(s) 

you are using for 2013 evaporative families, e.g. whole vehicle, 
bench aging, or both. If both, please provide the approximate 
percentage of each. 


2. Please describe your plans to phase in the use of E15 (or higher) 
for evaporative durability programs. If possible, please provide 
the ethanol content you intend to use for 2013, 2014 and 2015 
model year evaporative durability programs. 


For example, your response could indicate that "For the 2013 model 
year we will use bench aging evaporative durability programs, only. 
For the 2013 model year, we expect to have 5 evaporative/refueling 
families, of which 4 are carryover and will simulate the evaporative 
durability effects of E10 and one will simulate the evaporative 
durability effects of E15" with similar statements for 2014 and 2015 
model year. 


Thanks

Dear Mr. Giles, 

Thank you for the ORVR application below. I have a few questions before I forward the application to my 
team members: there are several references to Bugatti in the application. Is this family identical to a 
Bugatti family? Items 3 and 4 specifically mention Bugatti. What is the connection with Bugatti and this 
VW evap family? 

Thanks for your answers.

Hello Lynn, 
hello Bernd, 
hello Vince, 


I just wanted to let you know that we took care of the label issue you found on the test vehicles of EPA's 
Surveillance Program 9ADXV03.23LC - 3.21 AVS MY 2009. 

Attached you will find the official defect report we submitted through Verify. 


We went through all of our emission labels for MY2009 and also found a second incorrect label, which we 
will correct with the same program. 

The next step is that we will contact the customers and call the vehicles in to our dealer to make sure that 
the label will be attached to the vehicles instead of sending out the label to the customer without 
knowing if it will end up on the car. 

So that issue will be solved soon. 


Also today we inspected together with Vince the vehicle that failed NMOG in the FTP. 


R104RXX-0077 (2009/A5) - VIN# 


Ex. 6 


Audi A5 Quattro manual 


We really couldn't find anything obvious when we looked at it. There was no active fault code, only one 
from a month ago. 

Since we do not really know what caused the problem, we would be interested in analyzing the vehicle.

Is there a chance to get the customer data from you? 


For tomorrow we scheduled a meeting which I have to cancel. I am very sorry for that, but I will try to call Lynn 
tomorrow morning to go through all of that. 

I believe we have everything so far and have to wait to see what the last vehicle looks like. 


Please let me know if you have any questions. 


Thank you very much. 


Best regards.

Hi Jim, 


We received a EPA test date for this vehicle of 3/21. As I mentioned in my voice message today, Is it 
possible to bump this back a week? I left a message last week requesting a change to our originally 
available date last week if possible. 


Just to clarify Lamborghini requested a change in earliest delivery date to 3/22. Please let me know if 
there is a problem with changing date so I can follow up. 


Sorry for the confusion.

Hello Jim, 

The Verify System is down, so if necessary, I will submit this through it when the system is working again. 

The attachment is a request for approval of an alternate cooling fan for emission testing of the MY 2013 
Lamborghini Aventador. Please see the attachment.

Hi Jim, 

We received a EPA test date for this vehicle of 3/21. As I mentioned in my voice message today. Is it 
possible to bump this back a week? I left a message last week requesting a change to our originally 
available date last week if possible. 

Just to clarify Lamborghini requested a change in earliest delivery date to 3/22. Please let me know if 
there is a problem with changing date so I can follow up. 

Sorry for the confusion. 

Regards 

Mike

Hi, Sebastian. 

I got permission to contact the vehicle owner to ask him/her if I can give their phone number to Audi to 
follow upon their vehicle. I haven't called the owner yet because I wasn't sure if you were going to wait 
until you got back from Germany. Would you prefer to get their info soon or would you like to wait until 
you return?

Subject: RE: 2011 LT CAFE Processing (Submission 253) 

Hi Bob; 

Thanks for the instructions, but I need a couple things clarified. We made the first section changes logged 
on as Audi now, so step one and two are completed. Now as I log on as Volkswagen and you said to re¬ 
submit with division code=l, am I to assume that this will be a new label entry, which means I have to 
create a new label index number, correct? I cannot delete index 40, 41 and 42 as an Audi index so is that 
something that you can tag later on when your CAFE audit program finds a label that is not used? 

We are have a great deal of difficulty when it comes to manufacture code and division numbers. When I 
enter a label and go back to it later in time, I have no indication of how I logged, Volkswagen or Audi. Can 
we have a discussion regards this issue? 

Is it possible to create a Volkswagen Group manufacturer code with division codes for the brands 
Volkswagen, Audi, Bentley, Lamborghini and Bugatti? If something were to be created like that, how 
much can be accomplished by Verify and how much work would it be for us? Presently, it is twice as 
much work to make all this work with the granting of permissions and such. Additionally, the Verify help 
line instructed me to enter footprint information for all car lines for the CAFE as Volkswagen (VWX). I 
think that the next problem will be agreeing with the reformed CAFE standard that EPA calculates versus 
our calculation. 

Thanks, 

Richard 248 754-4213

Hello Jim; 

Please find attached, the cover letter with spreadsheet printouts of the EPA NOx fleet average template 
as well as the Excel spreadsheet file. As it was stated in the letter the spreadsheet does not include the 
HLDT volumes, but it is of little consequence because all models are certified to the 0.07 g/mi NOx 
standard or better. None of the HLDT are certified better than 0.07 NOx. The total number of 2011 
Volkswagen Group LDV/LLDT and HLDT is 333,336 units. If you see anything that needs to be corrected 
please let me know. I will attempt to place the pdf file into Verify, if you can tell me where it goes.

Dave 


Hello!! 


I am Dale Harris Certification Specialist reporting to Len Kata at VWGoA. I am preparing the GHG Early 
Credit Report for submission and need clarity/direction on a couple of issues. 


1. I am using the 'Banking & Trading Summary Table' provided via the EPA GHG site for the Early Credit 
Report. Is this the appropriate template?? 

2. I have modified the template to include multiple car and truck rows to enable pathway 3 
calculations to appear appropriately. Is it ok to modify the template?? 


In addition I have attached a draft version of the report that will enable you to provide responses to the 
questions above. Thanks!!!

Hello Lynn, 


Please find attached a revised document with improved diagrams to describe the Jetta Hybrid ORVR 
system. 


In addition, I have attached answers to some of the questions we discussed. If you have any further 
questions, please let me know. If needed I can try set up a conference call to resolve any details.

Q1 Page 2, Filling Ventilation: 

a) Arrow direction seems wrong in the connection between DMTL to canister, (corrected in new file) 

b) Please clarify in drawing, (corrected in new file) 

Q2 If engine is off, there are arrows from Canister and fuel tank to the engine - please confirm / 
clarify if these connections are present (open) during the fill, (corrected in new file)

b) Does the tank de-pressurization occur during this step, or somewhere other step? Yes! 

c) What is vapor path during de-pressurization? (When the red/black broken line is red) 

d) When does de-pressurization occur (if not in this step)? No, look at c) 

e) Please update diagram for example shows gasoline going into the tank should be removed(corrected in new 
file) 

f) A detailed text description of the regeneration the would help, with some details of when it occurs, engine 
on or off or both, what causes it (button push?), etc. (corrected in new file) 


Q5: Please describe all situations where DMTL would have reverse flow, and add this to diagrams 

Only in case of refueling, preparation for refueling and after diagnostic a reverse flow over DMTL would be activ. 


Q6: For the diagrams, please describe the yellow, black and mixed lines in the keys (for example in 

Regeneration, the line between FTIR and Carbon canister).(add for the broken line in new file)

Richard, 

Here you go. I didn't bother to double check for errors and double check the errors that the macro 
found. 

Let me know if you need any other model years. 

Also as a heads up—the May 11, 2012 Verify release (Release 10) will have a new transmission type 
"AMS" for Selectable Automated Manual (e.g. Automated Manual with paddles). Verify will then 
determine the Transmission as listed in the FE Guide from the number of forward gears. For example, an 
AMS trans with 6 forward gears will be listed as "Auto (AM-S6)." 

You may want to start using it for your 2013 model year vehicles. 

Regards

Hello!! 


I am Dale Harris Certification Specialist reporting to Len Kata at VWGoA. I am preparing the GHG Early Credit 
Report for submission and need clarity/direction on a couple of issues. 


1. I am using the 'Banking & Trading Summary Table' provided via the EPA GHG site for the Early Credit Report. 
Is this the appropriate template?? 

2. I have modified the template to include multiple car and truck rows to enable pathway 3 calculations to 
appear appropriately. Is it ok to modify the template?? 


In addition I have attached a draft version of the report that will enable you to provide responses to the questions 
above. Thanks!!!

Subject: VW Group: Investigation into Possible Manufacturer Profile Changes in Verify 


Hello Sandra, 

The Volkswagen Group is investigating the possibility of some changes in how it is listed in the Verify 
System. 

Bob Peavyhouse made a suggestion to Richard Thomas that has the potential to considerably simplify the 
our submission processing for CAFE and GHG. 

This is only a preliminary investigation and we are not sure that we can even do it for reasons we have yet 
to discover. 

Currently the Volkswagen Group consists of Volkswagen, Audi, Bentley, Lamborghini and Bugatti. 

Each of these manufacturers exist in Verify as a separate manufacturer with it's own login. 

We are investigating the possibility of combining some or ail of the five manufacturers under one entity - 
similar to other manufacturers (GM, Ford, Toyota, etc.) with more than one make. 

This would, in theory, reduce the magnitude of permissions we have to set up and any number of other 
things in Verify in order to share data between all five manufacturers. 

We need to know if it is possible to set up a single manufacturer group in Verify using manufacturers that 
already exist in Verify as individual manufacturers. 

We also need to know what the ramifications of doing that would be. Would that, for instance, change 
the manufacturer name on the certificates of conformity? 

Is it possible to keep the individual manufacturer names on the related certificates of conformity? Any 
other things to consider?

If this is even possible, we will have to get agreement from each of the affected manufacturers before we can 
move ahead with it. 

For now we are trying to get answers to the questions we know they will ask. 

Any insight that you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Subject: VW Group: Transmission Lockup Choices in Verify 

robert.hart@vw.com

(embedded image) 

Bob H, 

Bob, Peavyhouse says that the transmission lockup data entry for Test Group, Vl„ FE Label and CAFE 
transmission fields must be consistent. We are not aware of any business rules which require a "yes" or 
"no" in the Transmission lockup fields for a certain type of transmission,. 

Also, as we discussed today, the EPA Verify "automated manual" transmission type is meant to include 
the VW dual-clutch transmission and the VW type of automated manual transmission which doesn't have 
dual clutches. As a "heads up," the May 11, 2012 Verify release (Release 10) we will have a new 
transmission type "AMS" for Selectable Automated Manual transmissions (e.g. Automated Manual with 
paddles or with a tiptronic gear selector). Verify will then determine the "Transmission as listed in the FE 
Guide" field from the transmission type (AMS) and the number of forward gears. For example, an AMS 
trans with 6 forward gears will be listed in the FE Guide as "Auto (AM-S6)." 


For automated manual transmissions, I'd recommend that after May 11, 2012, VW begin using this new 
field for 2013 model year vehicles and enter "yes" for transmission lock-up for those transmissions. The 
transmission lock-up field was not meant to mean lockup torque converter (as may have been the case in 
some of the old CFEIS instructions). See Bob Peavyhouse's attached email. Verify data elements field VI- 
38 is correct—the description for that field doesn't mention the torque converter. Verify data elements 
fields GL-69 and TG-309 need to be corrected—the description for those fields mentions a locking torque 
converter. 

The good news is that the Verify front-end data input headings are correct—they don't mention "torque 
converter." See Bob P's email, below.

Subject: VW Group: Transmission Choices in Verify 


Hello Sandra, 

The Volkswagen Group uses a variety of automatic transmission types. Most are covered by the available 
selections in the Verify System. 

One type is not. We have a "double clutch" automatic transmission that uses two clutches instead of a torque 
converter. 

Because our vehicles have a driver selectable "Tiptronic" (manual shift) mode in addition to the fully automatic 
mode, we use the semi-automatic designation in Verify for these transmissions. 

This transmission, not having a torque converter, does not use lock-up because much like a manual transmission, it 
is locked up all of the time. 

This transmission does not fit into the automated manual transmission designation. We have automated manual 
transmissions and they are a considerably different configuration. 

3 


VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 003162 





Historically, we have been entering these "double clutch" transmissions as semi-automatic with no lock-up 
because there is no torque converter to lock up. 

Since the more recent business rules have been in place, when a transmission is designated as an automatic or 
semi-automatic, Verify requires the torque converter lock-up option to be set to yes. 

With the current business rules in Verify, we now have to go back and reset the torque converter lock-up option to 
yes for all of these transmissions, even though they do not have it. 

We were instructed to do that by Bob Peavyhouse in order to pass all of the business rules for the CAFE / GHG 
submissions. 

If possible, we would like to have a new lock-up option choice* added in Verify of "not applicable" for these 
transmissions and the business rules changed to allow that choice for automatic and semi-automatic 
transmissions. 

We are not the only manufacturer using double clutch transmissions. 

Please contact me if you need any more information. Any feedback you can give me will be greatly appreciated. If 
you reply to this e-mail, please reply to all.

Dale, 

Thanks for the reminder—sorry it took me so long to reply. 

1. Yes It's OK to modify the templates if you need to. Please keep track of the modifications and 
document them somewhere in your early credit report. For example, the report could indicate that VW 
used the EPA template "Averaging, Banking and Trading Summary Table" provided at 
http://www.epa.gov/otaq/regs/ld-hwy/greenhouse/ld-ghg.htm, except we modified it as follows: XXX; 
YYYY; and ZZZZ. Note that we didn't anticipate that manufacturers would use the "Pre-Model Year Report 
Projected CREE Compliance Level" template for early credit reports because it is based on model type 
data instead of subconfiguration data (like CAFE calculations). 

2. Your modifications look OK to me—to track Federal and Calif/177 State compliance separately for 
Pathway 3 early credits. However, as you know VW can only use one pathway for early credits—so I'd 
recommend that you revise your description in the Comments column from"Credits Pathways 2 & 4" to 
"Pathway 3 Federal production" and "Pathway 3 Calif/177 State Production" (or something to that 
effect).

Hello!! 

I am Dale Harris Certification Specialist reporting to Len Kata at VWGoA. I am preparing the GHG Early 
Credit Report for submission and need clarity/direction on a couple of issues. 

1. I am using the 'Banking & Trading Summary Table' provided via the EPA GHG site for the Early Credit 
Report, is this the appropriate template?? 

2. I have modified the template to include multiple car and truck rows to enable pathway 3 
calculations to appear appropriately. Is it ok to modify the template??

Subject: Transmission Lock-Up Definitions in Verify 

robert.hart@vw.com 


Hello Bob, 


I had a discussion with Dave Good regarding automated manual transmissions and double clutch 
automatic transmissions. 

I believe we finally have the lock-up definition that has been plaguing Richard Thomas with the CAFE and 
GHG submissions nearly corrected in our system. 


To recap: 

Automated manual and double clutch (DSG) transmissions with a manual shift mode (by paddles or shift 
lever) will come under the new designation: "AMS" with Verify Release 10. 

Lock-up refers to "transmission lock-up", not torque converter lock-up, for these transmissions and the 
answer is: "Y" (yes). 

For MY 2012 and prior model years we will leave the DSG transmissions designated as Semi-Automatic 
(SA) and set the lock-up to "Y". 


For our automated manual (AM) transmissions, the transmission lock-up is currently set to "N" (no). 
Should it be set to "Y"? 

Currently, transmission lock-up for our CVT transmissions is set to "N". 

Based on my understanding of the definition of "transmission lock-up", the answer for our CVT 
transmissions (no torque converter used) should be "Y". Is this true? 


Let me know if the above is correct. 

We will correct whatever is necessary based on your response. 

I think, with these answers, this will finally end the confusion with this issue for us.

For flex luel, you only need to do the E10 evap tests. 

ForOCREE, I guess you need to put something higher in the methane and N20 limits. Either equal to 
your methane w/DF, or just 9999. I'll ask the Verify staff what they are typically recommending but they 
are in a meeting this afternoon.

Note, we (VW Group) are using opt-CREE. Our understanding is that methane (and N20) standards only apply if

Subject: Investigation into possible changes for VW Group in the Verify System 

robert.hart@vw.com 


Hello Jim, 


I need to have a brief discussion with you regarding the topic in an e-mail that I sent to Sandra Somoza 
that she forwarded to you. 

We are investigating the possibility of reconfiguring the Volkswagen Group in the Verify System. 


We are looking at consolidating some or all five of our manufacturers under one group to simplify our 
interaction with the Verify System. 

We need to know any negative aspects of making this change. 

This will require "buy in" from Audi, VW, Bentley, Lamborghini and Bugatti because the test group names 
will all have the same identifier and, unless I am wrong, the certificates will all come under the same 
group name. For instance, if a Volkswagen Group was created to contain all five manufacturers, then all 
certificates would come back as Volkswagen Group certificates. 

This is the type of question that I need answers for. If it proves beneficial to do this, in order to "sell" it, I 
will need the answers to all of the questions that I know the group will ask. 


I have not had any luck catching you at your desk. I have been trying to call you several times over the last 
few days without success. I did not leave any messages. 


Please call me or let me know when it would be a good time for me to call you to discuss this.

Bob, 

From my standpoint (processing labels and CAFE), it doesn't really matter unless you have multiple 
models and the only difference is that one of them has lockup=yes, and the other lockup=no. The only 
thing that matters to the processing of the data is that you are consistent throughout the certification and 
labeling process. 

Flowever, Dave Good deals more with the fuel economy guide, and he does have a preferred way to keep 
things consistent between manufacturers. So I will defer to Dave to give you guidance on this issue. 

The biggest problem I see is when a manufacturer lists a certified model in their test group one way, and 
then changes it when labeling. CAFE uses all of the data already entered in Label, so it really isn't a 
problem for CAFE other than this is where the inconsistency is currently flagged. We have a business rule 
in the works to keep this from happening in future labels, but it won't be in place until May 11th. 

But as I mentioned, it doesn't matter to the processing as long as you are consistent.

Subject: Transmission Lock-Up Definitions in Verify 


Hello Bob, 

I had a discussion with Dave Good regarding automated manual transmissions and double clutch 
automatic transmissions. 

I believe we finally have the lock-up definition that has been plaguing Richard Thomas with the CAFE and 
GHG submissions nearly corrected in our system.

To recap: 

Automated manual and double clutch (DSG) transmissions with a manual shift mode (by paddles or shift lever) will 
come under the new designation: "AMS" with Verify Release 10. 

Lock-up refers to "transmission lock-up", not torque converter lock-up, for these transmissions and the answer is: 
"Y" (yes). 

For MY 2012 and prior model years we will leave the DSG transmissions designated as Semi-Automatic (SA) and set 
the lock-up to "Y". 

For our automated manual (AM) transmissions, the transmission lock-up is currently set to "N" (no). Should it be 
set to "Y"? 

Currently, transmission lock-up for our CVT transmissions is set to "N". 

Based on my understanding of the definition of "transmission lock-up", the answer for our CVT transmissions (no 
torque converter used) should be "Y". Is this true? 

Let me know if the above is correct. 

We will correct whatever is necessary based on your response. 

I think, with these answers, this will finally end the confusion with this issue for us.

Bob H, 

Regarding your question about what should be entered for the lock-up field for CVT transmissions, for 
about 60% of the CVT transmissions in Verify, manufacturers have entered No (and about 40 % they 
entered Yes), for 2011-2013 data in Verify. 

Use your own judgment on what to enter in VW/Audi's case-but as Bob P said, please be consistent 

from Test group info to FE Label to CAFE data entry.

Hi, Michael. 

Thank you for the new illustrations. They were very helpful. As I understand the operation, the 
"Regeneration" stage is actually the purge phase where vapors get drawn by vacuum though the canister 
and into the engine. Air is drawn through the DMTL to take the place of the vapors. 

It also helps to know that, for the most part the FTIV is closed except in the case of refueling, for 
diagnostic purposes or in the event of critical pressure in the fuel tank. With that understanding, 
however, I wonder whether the same section of vent line shown as hashed in the "Regeneration" figure 
should also be hashed in the "Operation Mode" 
figure. I think the same conditions would apply. 

In the answer to Q4, b) in your e-mail, you asked whether tank de-pressurization occurs during the 
Regeneration phase. The answer is "Yes!" but this contradicts the description of the regeneration phase. 
According to the write-up, depressurization takes part during the "Filling Ventilation" phase. Is this 

1

correct? 


In none of the diagrams is gasoline shown entering the fuel tank. I would suggest adding an arrow indicating fuel 
going into the fuel tank in the "Filling Ventilation" figure. 

Let me know if you have any questions, Michael.

Description and Schematic of the Jetta Hybrid 1.41 ORVR System 
Model Year 2013 

The fuel tank system is designed to load the canister with hydrocarbons only when 
refueling and is therefore a non-integrated ORVR-System . 

The Fuel Tank Isolation Valve (FTIV) is opened only in case of refueling, for 
diagnostic purposes and in case of the fuel tank pressure reaching a critical 
threshold. During soak the tank is sealed and therefore no vapor can escape to 
ambient. 

For safety purposes and to avoid damage to the system during soak time, the FTIV is 
equipped with mechanical bypass valves, which open below -100 mbar or over +300 
mbar difference between fuel tank and ambient pressure. 

When the engine is running, the fuel tank pressure is controlled by a purge strategy 
comparable to conventional vehicle concepts. 

Before refueling is possible, the fuel tank is vented stepwise by the FTIV to the 
canister. 

The components and assemblies which are involved in these operations are: 

1. Fill pipe 

2. Expansion volume 

3. Fuel Tank Isolation Valve (FTIV) 

4. Fuel tank (high pressure) 

5. Fuel Delivery Modul (FDM) 

6. Fuel Tank Pressure Sensor 

7. Fuel Level Venting Valve (FLW) 

8. Roll-Over Valve (ROV) 

9. Main Vent line (inside fuel tank) 

10. Vent line (connection between fuel tank, filler and expansion volume) used for leak 
check too 

11. Vent line (connection between ROV and carbon canister) 

12. Carbon Canister (Honey-Comb) 

13. Vent line (connection between carbon canister and DMTL) (not pictured) 

14. Diagnosis Module Tank Leakage (DMTL) (not pictured)

Attachment 1 


Filling Ventilation: 



For refueling, the fuel-tank-button inside the car must first be pushed in order to vent 
the fuel tank. The fuel tank is then vented stepwise by the FTIV to the carbon 
canister. The next step of the refueling operation is to remove the filler cap. 

The flow of fuel through the filler neck tube into the fuel tank provides a liquid seal. 
This prevents fuel vapor from escaping to the atmosphere. 

The fuel vapor is channeled through the fuel level venting valve (FLVV) to the carbon 
canister via the main vent line, expansion volume and through the pressure-holding- 
valve and outside vent line (multilayer). The hydrocarbons are stored in the carbon 
canister. 

When the tank fuel level reaches the fuel level venting valve (FLVV), its float 
mechanism closes the pathway for vapor and causes a fuel nozzle shut off. 

The refueling operation ends with securing the filler cap. 

Only in case of refueling, preparation for refueling and for diagnostic purposes a 
reverse flow over DMTL would be active.

Attachment 1 


Regeneration: 

The tank is at atmospheric pressure or pressurized. Carbon canister venting with 
fresh air over DMTL. (Regular venting/Diagnostic mode) 



This line can be active or inactive: The Fuel Tank Isolation Valve (FTIV) is opened only in 
case of refueling, for diagnostic purposes and in case of the fuel tank pressure reaching a 
critical threshold. During soak the tank is sealed and therefore no vapor can escape to 
ambient. 

To prevent fuel evaporation to the atmosphere, a charcoal canister is installed 
between the tank and the atmosphere, which absorbs evaporating hydrocarbons. 

As the charcoal canister has a limited storage capacity, it has to be discharged at a 
sufficient rate. This is realized by opening a connection between the charcoal 
canister and the intake manifold - the purge valve. After the canister purge valve is 
opened, ambient air is drawn in through the charcoal canister due to the vacuum in 
the intake manifold. The stored hydrocarbons are discharged and enter the 
combustion chamber together with the ambient air. The additional air and fuel 
charges during the canister purge phases lead to a fuel mixture deviation, which is 
compensated by the ECM's lambda control. 

For diagnostic purposes the pressure in the tank will be completely equalized. But 
under normal driving conditions without extreme atmospheric conditions the FTIV will 
not open below 50hPa pressure. So normally we have no de-pressurization of the 
tank during this step.

Subject: Re: VW Group - Jetta 1.4L ORVR Revision 
Hi, Michael. 

Thank you for the new illustrations. They were very helpful. As I understand the operation, the "Regeneration" 
stage is actually the purge phase where vapors get drawn by vacuum though the canister and into the engine. Air is 
drawn through the DMTL to take the place of the vapors. 

It also helps to know that, for the most part the FTIV is closed except in the case of refueling, for diagnostic 
purposes or in the event of critical pressure in the fuel tank. With that understanding, however, I wonder whether 
the same section of vent line shown as hashed in the "Regeneration" figure should also be hashed in the 
"Operation Mode" 

figure. I think the same conditions would apply. 

In the answer to Q4, b) in your e-mail, you asked whether tank de-pressurization occurs during the Regeneration 
phase. The answer is "Yes!" but this contradicts the description of the regeneration phase.

According to the write-up, depressurization takes part during the "Filling Ventilation" phase. Is this correct? 


In none of the diagrams is gasoline shown entering the fuel tank. I would suggest adding an arrow indicating fuel 
going into the fuel tank in the "Filling Ventilation" figure. 

Let me know if you have any questions, Michael.

Hello Lynn, 

Please find attached a revised document with improved diagrams to describe the Jetta Hybrid ORVR system. 

In addition, I have attached answers to some of the questions we discussed. If you have any further questions, 
please let me know. If needed I can try set up a conference call to resolve any details. 


Regards, 

Mike 


Q1 Page 2, Filling Ventilation: 

a) Arrow direction seems wrong in the connection between 
DMTLto canister, (corrected in new file) 

b) Please clarify in drawing, (corrected in new file) 

Q2 If engine is off, there are arrows from Canister and fuel 

tank to the engine - please confirm / clarify if these connections are present (open) during the fill, (corrected in 
new file) 

Q3: Operation Ventilation Diagram (pg 3) 
a) Shows fuel into tank during this phase, which is 
incorrect, (corrected in new file) 

Q4: EPA Requests some specifics details about the Regeneration 
Phase 

a) Is the engine on/off during this phase? On! 

b) Does the tank de-pressurization occur during this step, 


3 


VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 003219 



or somewhere other step? Yes! 

c) What is vapor path during de-pressurization? (When the 
red/black broken line is red) 

d) When does de-pressurization occur (if not in this 
step)? No, look at c) 

e) Please update diagram for example shows gasoline going 
into the tank should be removed (corrected in new file) 

f) A detailed text description of the regeneration the 

would help, with some details of when it occurs, engine on or 
off or both, what causes it (button push?), etc. (corrected in 
new file) 

Q5: Please describe all situations where DMTL would have reverse 
flow, and add this to diagrams 

Only in case of refueling, preparation for refueling and after diagnostic a reverse flow over DMTL would be activ. 
Q6: For the diagrams, please describe the yellow, black and 

mixed lines in the keys (for example in Regeneration, the line between FTIR and Carbon canister), (add for the 
broken line in new file)

Hello Jim, 

I Have uploaded a Decision Information to Verify for the following test group and VID. This is for the 2013 
Audi A8L equipped with our VW-designed W12 engine. 

The tests represent an increased ETW to 5,250, from 5,000 in 2012, due to the addition of rear A/C in the 
passenger compartment. The final drive was also changed to optimize MPG but no new technology is 
included.

Hello Jim, 

I have submitted the following Decision Information to Verify for your consideration. This test vehicle was 
tested in both Start-stop modes; Stop-start activated (VID Config-0) and deactivated (VID Config-1). As 
the result, we plan to average the tests for fuel economy. The Configuration-0 represents the worst case 
EDV for the test group, Audi A8 3.0L V6 (supercharged) with Stop-start activated. 

Evaporative testing was also performed on Configuration-0 as the result of a new Evap. Family which now 
uses a small in-line bleed canister. 

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Hello Jim, 


Could you confirm that for the new EPA assigned ADF's (CD-12-07), that we should still use the listed 
NMOG values as DF's for NMHC and methane? 


On a related note, I understand that starting with MY14 we will no longer be able to use NMOG DF's for 
methane. If so, would carryover test groups be exempt from this requirement? 


Thanks

Hello Jim, 


Today we submitted our certification request for Bugatti Test Group DBGTV08.0V16. This is a carryover 
test group, with EPA assigned DF's. Please note, these values were changed to the new additive values 
per EPA's latest guidance letter CD-12-07. So the certification values on the CSI will be slightly different. 


Please let me know if any questions arise on review of this request.

Subject: VW Group - Wednesday testing information 


Hi Jim, 


Just a follow up to my voice message: 


As you know we have two vehicles scheduled to begin testing at EPA on Wednesday (a Volkswagen and a 
Lamborghini.). 


I am planning to be there Wednesday to witness the start of both tests if possible. For the VW test, we 
also have an engineer from Germany (Tobias Glas) who is planning to be there. For Lamborghini, there 
are 4 other engineers. I understand that there are usually limits to the number of witnesses, but would 
like to see if that is a hard rule in the case of the Lamborghini as they have requested I be there if possible. 


Some other information about the Lamborghini: During the testing over the last week, there was some 
wheel slip which occurred during the US06 test, making it difficult to maintain the trace. We think this 
may have something to do with the rollers, because they did not seem to have this issue at their dyno. 
We just want to let you know about this in case the same thing happens at EPA. 


Also, would it be possible for us to meet briefly, and possible get a small tour of the testing facilities? 


Lastly, if you could forward a testing schedule when it is available, it would be appreciated. 


Please call me if you have any questions. 


Thanks, 

Mike

Mike, I forgot to give you Vince Mazaitis 1 phone number. He supports all our group's lab testing that 
we do. He starts early so you should ask for him when you and the others get here Wednesday. He's at 
214-4864. 

Also, I assume they showed Ben how to start and drive the car when they dropped it off, but they didn't 
mention to him about the start/stop feature. I assume this is transparent to the driver?

Hello Jim, 


Just to follow up on a couple open points. 


For the production vehicles, there will be a button to disable start-stop. But for the test vehicle, we do 
not have this button since it was decided that we were only doing confirmatory testing in active mode. 


Also, there is in fact brake pressure activation. However we are told it is "minimal". So, it might not be 
apparent to the driver compared to an Audi system. 

Hope this helps,

Subject: Message on GHG early credit reports 

Early Credits Report Due March 30, 2012 

We wish to remind manufacturers that reports that detail participation in the optional early C02 credit 
programs under EPA's light-duty vehicle greenhouse gas regulations are due no later than 90 days after 
the end of the 2011 model year (see 40 CFR 86.1867-12(e)). For most manufacturers, this means that the 
required reports must be submitted to EPA by Friday, March 30, 2012. See 40 CFR 86.1867-12(e) for the 
specific reporting requirements, but please note that the general stated requirement is that the report 
contain "all information necessary for the calculation of the manufacturer's early credits in each of the 
2009 through 2011 model years." This requirement is especially important because our Verify system is 
neither receiving detailed values nor making or verifying any of the calculations. Thus, EPA intends to 
carefully review these reports to ensure consistency and equity across manufacturers, and we will be able 
to ensure a level playing field only if the reports clearly show how the early credits were determined. If 
you have any questions, you may direct them to your EPA certification representative, or to Rob French at 
734-214-4380, or french.roberts@epa.gov. Please submit your reports through Verify and send a copy to 
Rob French.

Hi Bob; 


Verify has finally accepted the 2011 VWGoA Import Passenger Car CAFE. For your information, we had to 
create the 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo model indexes, 52, 53, and 54 as new under the Audi sign on, and 
they are now Audi labels 152,153 and 154. 


The Audi label 58 for the Volkswagen Eos was created under Volkswagen, and is now label index 158. 


I will look forward to your audit of the PC CAFE. 


Beginning with model year 2013,1 will create all Volkswagen Group brand fuel economy labels under 
Volkswagen. The only exception is the Bentley GT and GTC equipped with the Audi certified 4.0L V8 
engine for which I had already labeled for 2013. We are hoping this will eliminate some of these 
permission trials we have to establish when it comes time for the CAFE and GHG reporting.

Thanks Jim, 


Lamborghini is reviewing the data, if they feel it is necessary we might call to discuss. 


Could you double check that the lab guys have kept the fuel drain hose with the vehicle? I think we just 
put it on the seat for the transport. 


Thanks

Hello Jim, 

We would like to schedule time at your facility on Tuesday afternoon May 8th to allow you and EPA staff 
to test drive a 2013 Audi A8 4.0L V8 equipped with Start-Stop and Cylinder Deactivation technologies. We 
plan to have Audi Engineers available during the time of the test drives to answer any questions that you 
or other staff may have. Please let us know if this date is acceptable and what block of time will work 
best for you. As you know, Audi representatives will already be at EPA for confirmatory testing the 
morning of May 8 and 9th so either afternoon is acceptable for us. An alternative might be Monday May 
7th after we deliver the test vehicle but the fore mentioned dates are preferred.

We would like to schedule time at your facility on Tuesday afternoon May 8th to allow you and ERA staff to test 
drive a 2013 Audi A8 4.0L V8 equipped with Start-Stop and Cylinder Deactivation technologies. We plan to have 
Audi Engineers available during the time of the test drives to answer any questions that you or other staff may 
have. Please let us know if this date is acceptable and what block of time will work best for you. As you know, 
Audi representatives will already be at EPA for confirmatory testing the morning of May 8 and 9th so either 
afternoon is acceptable for us. An alternative might be Monday May 7th after we deliver the test vehicle but the 
fore mentioned dates are preferred.

Mr. Dennis Reineke

Auburn Hills, Michigan 48326 

Dear Mr. Reineke, 

The Environmental Protection Agency will test a 2010 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 three 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, highway cycle and 
US06 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 an evaporative test 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

Hi Jim, 

Is there any possibility to get the certificates requested on April 5th for test group DADXV02.03UB by early next 
week? 


We've got a small dealer demo fleet that the Sales Dept, wants to release to dealers earlier than expected. 

Thanks,

While EPA does have light-duty OBD regulations, nearly all light-duty OBD systems in the US are built to 
comply with the California OBDII regulations. Those can be found here:

If you really do want the EPA regulations, you can find them in 40 CFR 86.1806-05, to which I have

Hello Jim, 

Thanks for pushing these Audi 2.0L certificates through on short notice. 

To answer your phone message question regarding why they were requested as conditional, I requested 
them as conditional only because we have not yet completed the Manufacturer Confirmatory tests, 
required due to high fuel economy for the ETW. After I thought about it, perhaps a conditional certificate 
is not necessary since we are only confirming fuel economy and not emissions. What is correct on that? 

Bill

Hello Jim: 


Hope all is well with you. 


I was speaking with my Audi colleagues on Wednesday and they asked about the Audi start-stop demo 
drive that we have scheduled with EPA for early May. They asked if EPA has any particular topics or 
questions that they should be prepared to address. My understanding was that EPA staff mainly wanted a 
chance to drive the car. I suggested that they have a 2-3 slide overview just as a refresher. 


Just so we can be appropriately prepared, are you expecting any more detailed discussion?

Subject: Re: Audi Start-Stop Demo 

Hi Len, I looked through my file on previous S/S presentations and I don't see any technical info on how 
it works and the control conditons. We always ask for a list of inputs and parameters that enable / 
disable the S/S feature. Not just the parameter but the threshold constants ( such as coolant temp 
<40deg.). We want to make sure it is active under reasonable operating conditions. Also describe any 
special driving situations (like stop and go or panic stop) that will turn off the feature. Maybe you already 
presented some of this but I didn't find it in my notes. 

I already reserved the lobby room so they can review how the feature works for say 20 minutes before 
we drive.

Hi Jim: 


Just to keep you informed, Audi is coming to the May 8 meeting prepared to provide a review of the 
system and respond to the points that you mentioned to me (i.e., enable conditions, operation during 
reasonable drive conditions, panic stop, stop-and-go traffic, etc). 


As you know, we have some Audi confirmatory testing going on at EPA so the Audi personal already there

Hi Jim: 

Just to keep you informed, Audi is coming to the May 8 meeting prepared to provide a review of the 
system and respond to the points that you mentioned to me (i.e., enable conditions, operation during 
reasonable drive conditions, panic stop, stop-and-go traffic, etc). 

As you know, we have some Audi confirmatory testing going on at EPA so the Audi personal already there 
will attend the meeting and be able to respond to any questions. Participants from our side include: 

Karlheinz Kissling (Audi AG) 

Carsten Stang (Audi AG) 

Andy Kramer (Audi AG) 

Mark Banzer (Audi AG) 

Oliver Schmidt (VWGoA - General Manager EEO) 

Leonard Kata (VWGoA) 

William Rodgers (VWGoA) (tentative) 

Mr. Schmidt is my current Manager and successor to Christoph Kohnen. He would appreciate the 
opportunity to meet EPA staff involved in emission certification and policy at this meeting. 

Let me know if you have any further questions.

Hello Jim: 

Last week, I reported the names of the participants for the Audi Start-Stop system meeting and demo 
drive. Unfortunately, Mr. Kissling will not be attending in person. If possible, we would like to connect 
with some of our colleagues in Germany by telephone. 

Therefore, I have arranged a conference call-in number. I would appreciate it if there is a speaker 
telephone available in the conference room. 

This invitation is merely to set up the call-in number.

Hello all: 

Prior to the May 8, 2012 demonstration of the Audi vehicle with cylinder deactivation and start-stop 
feature, we will provide a brief presentation. 

I have attached a copy of the slides for your preview. The slides address the features of these systems 
and address questions previously raised by EPA such as: 

How the systems works (including control conditions) 

Parameters that enable the start-stop feature (including threshold constants) 

Assurance that the start-stop system is active under reasonable driving conditions 
A description of special driving situations that will turn off the system (e.g., stop-and-go traffic, panic 
stops, etc). 

The presentation includes an animation which will be shown during our meeting but is not included here 
due the large file size. 

We look forward to the meeting and demo drive. 

Best regards, 

Len

Hello Jim, 

I see that the cert is in for signature for the 4.2L RS5. Thanks for the fast turnaround on this (!) 


Just to double check, can you confirm you have the following cert requests in your workflow (just to make 
sure our requests made it through). 

1) DADXV05.2LR8 / evaporative family DADXR0130R8A submitted April 18 

2) DADXV02.53UK / evaporative family DADXR0110238 

Just as a heads up, there will be more coming by in the next days. 


Thanks

Subject: RE: VW Dual Fuel Calculation 

Hello Bob; 

Sorry I didn't get a chance to track you down yesterday, I ran out of time. Thanks for the calculation 
sample. As far as I can see my numbers and calculation are the same. I understand now that the baseline 
calculated average is our fleet where FFV Bentley Continental models are with gasoline fuel and the AMFA 
calculation is the where the Continental models are included with the E85 bonus. I assume TPA means 
test procedure adjustment. So, the baseline calculated fleet average is with the FFV Continental models 
using gasoline only and the AMFA fleet average with the calculated bonus we get for the FFV models? 
What does the acronym AMFA mean, adjusted manufacturer fleet average? I originally submitted only 
the AMFA values. I have submitted another version with the baseline values into Verify. I think we are in 
agreement now. 

I wanted to show you the Audi A8L 4.0L bi turbo demonstration vehicle yesterday. The vehicle is there 
today with my German colleagues. If you would like to test drive it, let me know and I can have the 
German guys contact you. This vehicle is equipped with cylinder deactivation and a start/stop system for 
improved real world, fuel economy. 

Thanks, 

Richard 248 754 4213

Hello Jim, 


I left a voice message, but to clarify: 


The Audi cert team still has the 4.0L demo car in Ann Arbor, with a correction for the start/stop 
mode setting problem after key-off. Please let us know if you would like to have a look at this; It uses the 
same SW as the 3.0L and this software is not emissions related as it is part of a body control unit (not 
ECM). 


Please let us know if there are any issues with respect to the validation of the 3.0L test results 
because of the above issue.

As part of the 2003 model year product line, Volkswagen intends to offer a version of the 
2.0-liter Volkswagen Jetta certified to the California Partial Zero Emission Vehicle 
(PZEV) requirements. Therefore, this concept will be required to comply with the 
California Super-Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle (SULEV) exhaust emission standards and 
zero-evaporative emission standards. 


To ensure emission stabilization prior to emission testing, Volkswagen requests, in 
accordance with the provisions of 40 CFR 86.132-96(d), that additional preconditioning 
be allowed when testing the 2.0-liter Volkswagen Jetta PZEV concept. The entire 
preconditioning process would consist of the prescribed Urban Dynamometer Driving 
Schedule (UDDS) with the addition of one complete Highway Fuel Economy Test 
(HWFET) cycle. 


The additio nal preconditio ning would be preformed whenever an emission test is 
conducted^ - new vehicle cenincanoiy r in-use emission testing.

Hi all, 

We are scheduled to have a J2951 meeting this Thursday. Since we are trying to wrap-up J1634 this 
month, it might make sense to cancel this meeting and focus on the J1634 ballot prep. Please let me know 
if you have any issues that need to be discussed this month, otherwise we'll cancel and reconvene in June. 

Thanks, 

Jeff

Fuel drain for vehicle preconditioning 


Vehicle preparation (for example: gasoline) ->diesel see page 7 

1. Close the fuel line, mount a crimb pincer (yellow), see page 4. 

2. Disconnect the fuel line from rail in the engine compartment. 

3. Connect the T-piece between rail and fuel line with clips, see page 5. 

Attention: Carefully check all clips in the fuel line before you start the engine 
or pump! 

4. Open the fuel line, remove the crimb pincer. 

Description of fuel drain (gasoline and diesel) 

1. Change the original against a external prepared connector on the fuel pump. 

2. Connect a drain line with a male connector at the quickconnector (QC). 

3. Switch on the pump with external DC power supply (Voltage: 12V/Current:20A). 

4. After the fuel drain switch off the power supply. 

5. Disconnect the drain line from the selfsealing female QC and close the QC with 
plug.

Hello Lynn, 

We are right now at the car with URS personnel and check the vehicle in. 

The traction control needs to be deactivated after every keycycle or start by press and hold the traction 
control button by the gear selector. 

Mark will leave a note in the car for the lab. 

We make sure he knows the system.

Hi, Sebastian. 

Once the traction control is deactivated, will it remain deactivated throughout the testing or will the 
testers need to deactivate the traction control every time the vehicle is started?

Hi, Sebastian. 

Please bring written instructions as well as planning on talking to URS at the time of maintenance. Our lab people 
will also need to know how to start the car so written directions will need to be placed into the vehicle.

Hello Lynn, 

Attached you will find the data for the Jetta 2.51. 

Since this is a SULEV(PZEV)/Bin3 concept, we asked for an additional preconditioning cycle (HWY) during the 
certification phase for in-use vehicles. (See attached pdf) 

Please perform a HWY after the regular FTP72 to precondition the vehicle. 

Thank you very much. See you tomorrow.

Hi Jim, 


You are correct, the heavier Q7 is tighter against the Touareg standard. That is the reason for the split

Jim, 

There will be one configuration (#6500 only) for the Mulsanne. This means using substitute data from the 
previous model year which had different ETW/RLHP. Only one set test of data will represent the entire 
test group for emissions and fuel economy.

I just spoke to Bentley. I think I was successful in persuading them to just present a complete set of new

Jim, 

I just spoke to Bentley. I think I was successful in persuading them to just present a complete set of new 
test data instead of burning up valuable hours trying to justifying the comparability of the two vehicles. 
Thanks for your help.

Bill, was this primarily for EDV or was B hoping to carryover Fuel economy too? I can consider EDV 
carryover but I think it will be hard to not have a new configuration for FEDV.

Bill, I was checking the CFR and a coworker pointed to a more recent section with regard to test vehicle selection. 
86.1828-01 is more general in the criteria for worse case. Part e and f of 1828 along with 86.1839-01 
(carryover) allow for criteria beyond test weight/RLHP/NV to determine worse case. Bentley needs to submit 
data explaining why they think the previous configuration is worse for emission than the new one. Emissions data 
or catalyst temperature comparisons are best but see what they have.

Hello Bob; 

Before Verify release 10 was came out, I successfully entered an Audi allroad quattro label signed on as 
Volkswagen (VWX). I am entering more models within the same Audi test group and with Audi carline 
names and received the following error messages. 

Transaction Status Details 
Transaction Status Identifier: REJECTED 

Transaction Message Text: LD-FE-GL-BR202 - If the Manufacturer Code of the owner of the 
Representative Test Group (GL-13.5) is different than the Submitter's Manufacturer Code (in Submission 
Author Details), then permission must be granted by the Owner Manufacturer for the Submitting 
Manufacturer to use the Test Group. (Test Group = DADXV02.03UB) 

Transaction Message Text: LD-FE-GL-BR003 - The Submitter's Manufacturer Code (in Submission Author 
Details) must match the Carline Manufacturer Code (GL-10). 

We then gave Volkswagen (VWX), permission to use the Audi test group DADXV02.03UB and one message 
went away but the BR003 message remains. We don't want to create Audi carlines in VWX and ask if it 
would be possible for the label program to ignore the AD and VW in the test group and carline? 

I wanted to enter everything under the VWX sign-on so that when it comes time to do CAFE and GHG 
fleets it doesn't take six months to process the reports. What do you suggest? 

I need to resolve this soon because, I have several Audi models in this 2.0L test group that will be released 
from the ports next week. 

I will be back after lunch, if you can touch base with me this afternoon it will help me a lot, I'm sure. 
Thanks, 

Richard 248 754 4213

Hi Dave; 

I got your message but because we have a new crap phone system I am unable to call. I agree with what 
you said about the name on a certificate. Bentley would, for example, hold a certificate with their name 
on it and not VW. I will proceed with using the Audi sign on to do my 2013 Audi labels, unless I hear of 
some other solution from Bob. 

Thanks, 

Richard.

Richard, 

You are correct. According to the Data Elements, the mfr code field in the FE Label module (GL-2) is 
assigned by Verify—it is derived by Verify from the users' CDX account. 

Attached is the VW/Audi data in Verify just prior to deploying Release 10.

Hi Dave; 


So the first ten labels on your list will need to be entered again by the brand they represent if I 
understand you correctly. Please call me when you can so we might discuss the issue.

Richard, 

You are correct. According to the Data Elements, the mfr code field in the FE Label module (GL-2) is 
assigned by Verify—it is derived by Verify from the users' CDX account. 

Attached is the VW/Audi data in Verify just prior to deploying Release 10.

Ex. 6 


I have another issue with regard to 2013 fuel economy labels and have already discussed this with Dave 
Good at EPA. I have entered a number of 2013 labels signed on as Volkswagen because these models are 
contained within a Volkswagen test group or I original planned to enter everything for the Volkswagen 
Group signed on as Volkswagen. The models are actually Audi models. The basis for the QR code is VWX 
and therefore the Verify system generates a QR code based upon the VWX manufacturer code and cannot 
direct the customer to the proper label information when our system created the QR Code based upon an 
ADX manufacturer code. 

It is not possible to change our system design to create the codes as a Volkswagen code so the solution 
was to enter these labels signed on as Audi and enter the model type fuel economy again thereby making 
the original labels inactive. 

Would you please make the following labels inactive or delete them so I may enter them again as Audi: 
VWX Index #: 009, 028, 029, and 034 

Please delete or make the following indexes inactive for these Volkswagen indexes for these Bentley 
models: 

VWX index #: 010, Oil, 012, and 013 

Please delete or make the following indexes inactive for these Audi indexes for these Bentley models: 

ADX index#: 007 and 008 

If you have any questions, please contact me directly.

Hello i EX. 6 


I have another issue with regard to 2013 fuel economy labels and have already 
discussed this with Dave Good at EPA. I have entered a number of 2013 labels signed 
on as Volkswagen because these models are contained within a Volkswagen test group 
or I original planned to enter everything for the Volkswagen Group signed on as 
Volkswagen. The models are actually Audi models. The basis for the QR code is VWX 
and therefore the Verify system generates a QR code based upon the VWX 
manufacturer code and cannot direct the customer to the proper label information when 
our system created the QR Code based upon an ADX manufacturer code. 


It is not possible to change our system design to create the codes as a Volkswagen 
code so the solution was to enter these labels signed on as Audi and enter the model 
type fuel economy again thereby making the original labels inactive. 


Would you please make the following labels inactive or delete them so I may enter them 
again as Audi: 


VWX Index #: 009, 028, 029, and 034 


Please delete or make the following indexes inactive for these Volkswagen indexes for 
these Bentley models: 


VWX index#: 010, 011, 012, and 013 


Please delete or make the following indexes inactive for these Audi indexes for these 
Bentley models: 


ADX index#: 007 and 008

Subject: Testing Strategy Approval Request - Audi Start/Stop Systems 

winmail.dat 


Hello Dave; 

After our visit with the demonstration 4.0L V8 Audi A8 on May 8th and equipped with cylinder 
deactivation and start/stop strategy, we reviewed our testing strategy and have the following request. 

The 3.0L V6 engine equipped Audi A8 emission data vehicle tested on May 2nd and May 8th at the EPA 
facility, was tested in two configurations. That is: complete five cycle tests with start/stop active and a 
complete second set of tests with start/stop system inactive at our facility in Ingolstadt. EPA confirmed 
the city tests in both configurations, start/stop active and inactive. Under the start/stop enable 
conditions you saw during the presentation, it is clear that the engine does not stop during three of the 5- 
cycle tests. There is no engine shut down in Highway, SC03 and Cold CO test cycles and only marginal 
engine stop in the US06 test cycle. The current start/stop strategy would yield on minor fuel economy 
improvement in the FTP and US06 cycle and therefore we would prefer to test only the FTP and US06 
harmonically average the two sets of test configurations together at the 50/50 rate. 

The high cost testing burden at our facility would be lessened and testing capacity could improve. Until 
which time there are some operational start/stop system strategy changes, we would propose to test only 
the FTP and US06 with start/stop active and inactive and average these tests at the 50/50 rate. 

If you have any questions, please contact me directly. 

Best regards.

We have submitted the application for Lamborghini but are having strange issues with VERIFY related to 
submitting a request for certificate. 

In the meantime if you can let me know if you have any questions about this, please let me know. 

This is a carryover test group with same Exhaust and Evaporative tests, but the exhaust uses the new EPA 
assigned additive DF's. Also, we are adding two stop/start configurations for MY 2013 (in addition to the 
two existing non-stop/start configurations). 

Thanks,

Hello r~"E x . e"”l 

The GHG report was already submitted through Mfr. VWX. To confirm this, see attached error message 
when we tried to re-submit the file through NLX. 

Why doesn't the system accept our "Y" answer that the GHG report was submitted, as it did in the past? 
It appears that this field is broken or has become non-functional, whereas it would be the best solution 
for us with multiple Mfr codes. 

Can you help point us in the right direction here as we need to understand the process changes. 

Thanks,

Hello Lynn, 


We inspected the two vehicles yesterday and I added the missing weight to the paperwork and signed it 
together with Vince. 


Attached you will find my update. All three vehicles have the same parameters. 


Let me know if you need anything.

Hello Lynn, 

Attached you will find the two parameter sheets for the vehicles we will get next week. 
They are all identical due to the parameters. 

Whenever I get a call from URS, we will come down to Ann Arbor and check the Jetta's in.

Subject: Audi Test Group - Lamborghini Gallardo Models 

winmail.dat 


Hello Bob; 

I need your input in order to label 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo models that are contained in a 2013 Audi 
Test group. I attempted to enter index # 030 signed on as NLX (Lamborghini) and received the following 
error messages from Verify; 

Transaction Status Details 
Transaction Status Identifier: REJECTED 

Transaction Message Text: LD-FE-GL-BR202 - If the Manufacturer Code of the owner of the 
Representative Test Group (GL-13.5) is different than the Submitter's Manufacturer Code (in Submission 
Author Details), then permission must be granted by the Owner Manufacturer for the Submitting 
Manufacturer to use the Test Group. (Test Group = DADXV05.2LR8) 

Transaction Message Text: LD-FE-GL-BR003 - The Submitter's Manufacturer Code (in Submission Author 
Details) must match the Carline Manufacturer Code (GL-10). 

Transaction Message Text: LD-FE-GL-BR154 - Test Groups listed in the Unique Carline/Subconfiguration 
Test Groups (GL-207) must have one Certified Model Carline the same as the Carline of the Model Type 
for this FE Label. (Subconfiguration Test Group = DADXV05.2LR8) 

There is a work around for BR154 that I don't want to use now, because I can wait till after the next 
release 10 deployment on June 1. 

Previously we removed a couple of error messages by allowing Audi to use Lamborghini as an alternate 
manufacture by test group and carline. We have only two carlines 406 Gallardo Coupe and 426 Gallardo 
Spyder created as Audi division 3 in test group DADXV05.2LR8. I know you mentioned to me that we 
should not create more than one carline for a model name. 

In an attempt to remove BR202 and BR003 we tried to sign on as Lamborghini and allow Audi as an 
alternative manufacture but got error processing messages: BR8, BR11, and BRIO. 

If you can tell me what the latest thinking is regarding the Volkswagen Group situation and manufacture 
codes, carline and division numbers, I would appreciate it. Perhaps I should enter this as an Audi label 
and error BR003 will go away. If you feel that the Verify help people are up to speed and should handle 
this problem, please let me know and I will direct this to them.

Subject: RE: VW and EPA Meeting - MPI/FSI Fuel Injection System 


Hello all: 


Unfortunately, not all participants were able to join the originally scheduled conference call and it was 
rescheduled for 0900 Detroit time today. I have a meeting conflict at 0900 that I thought I could change, 
but this is not possible. Therefore, we need to reschedule this conference call/web conference for later 
today. 1000 or later would be preferable. 


Please let me know if this is possible.

Manufacturer retests are required for FTP and HWY cycles due to High Fuel Economy for the ETW. 

No new technology is used.

winmaii.dat 


Richard, 

Background: In a May 8, 2012 meeting, VW/Audi staff presented EPA with a description of the stop/start 
system and cylinder deactivation system for these 2013 Audi A8 vehicles. The vehicle is equipped with 
what you called "Last-mode functionality," where the last stop/start setting (enable/disable mode) is 
restored after stopping and restarting the vehicle. In other words, the stop/start button is "latched" when 
stopping and restarting the vehicle. Although I had a conflict on May 8, 2012 and didn't get to drive the 
vehicle, it's my understanding that the May 8, 2012 drive was acceptable to all EPA engineers who drove 
it (including both the stop/start feature and the cylinder deactivation feature of the vehicle). 

Regarding your current request to perform one test for the Highway, SC03 and Cold FTP cycle (and two 
sets of FTP and US06 tests-—with and without the stop/start system enabled), we believe that your 
request sounds reasonable to us, and it is hereby approved. 

Please call or email me if you have questions about this email.

Hello Dave;

VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 003565 



After our visit with the demonstration 4.0L V8 Audi A8 on May 8th and equipped with cylinder deactivation and 
start/stop strategy, we reviewed our testing strategy and have the following request. 


The 3.0L V6 engine equipped Audi A8 emission data vehicle tested on May 2nd and May 8th at the EPA facility, was 
tested in two configurations. That is: complete five cycle tests with start/stop active and a complete second set of 
tests with start/stop system inactive at our facility in Ingolstadt. EPA confirmed the city tests in both 
configurations, start/stop active and inactive. Under the start/stop enable conditions you saw during the 
presentation, it is clear that the engine does not stop during three of the 5-cycle tests. There is no engine shut 
down in Highway, SC03 and Cold CO test cycles and only marginal engine stop in the US06 test cycle. The current 
start/stop strategy would yield on minor fuel economy improvement in the FTP and US06 cycle and therefore we 
would prefer to test only the FTP and US06 harmonically average the two sets of test configurations together at 
the 50/50 rate. 

The high cost testing burden at our facility would be lessened and testing capacity could improve. Until which time 
there are some operational start/stop system strategy changes, we would propose to test only the FTP and US06 
with start/stop active and inactive and average these tests at the 50/50 rate. 

If you have any questions, please contact me directly. 

Best regards, 

Richard

Hi 


Ex. 6 


Please call me when you are available to talk a minute. Bill tried to enter this VWX division 1 carline 211

carline. The manufacturer code has to be Audi to add a carline to this Audi test group. This is the same

I must enter this Volkswagen model as a Volkswagen in order to create a Volkswagen label because the 
QR code is created as a Volkswagen VWX for Volkswagen models. If I signed on as Audi I am sure the label 
will run but the label will be created as Audi and then the QR code created will be wrong. 

Now I have several model indexes with the same situation, Lamborghini within an Audi Test group. Audi 
models within a Volkswagen test group and Bentley models within an Audi test group.

Hello Mr. Thomas, 


You newly created carline code 211 has to exist in Verify as a certified model. In order to certify this 
carline you will need to unlock your test group and then add this carline to your test group in the Certified 
Models section on the Evap/Stnds/Models tab (see screen shot below). 

To unlock your test group navigate to MyCDX > Verify: Light Duty > Request Certificate and select Process 
Code "U=Unlock Request." 

After you have unlocked your test group and added this carline to the test group you will need to request 
another certificate and have your cert rep issue it. 

Please note that the information that you enter in your general label submission will have to match what 
you enter in the Certified Models section in your test group submission (i.e. Transmission Type, 
Transmission Lockup, Transition Creeper Gear, Total Number of Transition Gears, and Drive System). 


Please let me know if you have any further questions.

GTI index 022 


Hello; Ex. 6 


We created carline 211 under VWX division 1 for the Volkswagen GTI and ran the label (index 022) again and got 
the following business rule messages. 

To remind you, this model is certified in two Audi test groups. The information I put on the label input and at the 
Subconfiguration level are using ADX division 2 and the Audi test group names with associated sales numbers. If 
you would like to discuss please feel free to call me at, 248

Hello Mr. Thomas, 


Business rule TG-BR67 was returned for this submission because the owner of 
the carline VWX is different than the submitter's manufacturer code ADX. 
Because this is the case VWX must grant ADX permission to use a VWX 
carline. 


For the VWX owner to grant permission for ADX to use its carline the VWX 
submitter must navigate to the Alternate Manufacturer tab of the Maintain 
Manufacturer Information module and make a submission granting ADX 
permission to do so. 

Business rule TG-BR89 indicates that this Carline 212 is not in the system. 
Please check to be sure that an accepted carline submission was made for 
Carline 212. 

After your test group submission is accepted a lock request should be made 
and the 'Yes' radio button should be selected for the 'Revised Certificate 
Needed' question. A comment can be added in the comment field about the 
'Revised Certificate Needed' question indicating that a revised certificate 
is needed to certify VWX carlines for your general label submission. 

I will also call you to discuss.

Please call me when you are available to talk a minute. Bill tried to 
enter this VWX division 1 carline 211 signed on as Audi, because it's an 
Audi test group, and it would not allow us to add this Volkswagen carline. 
The manufacturer code has to be Audi to add a carline to this Audi test 
group. This is the same type problem we have with the general label. 


I must enter this Volkswagen model as a Volkswagen in order to create a 
Volkswagen label because the QR code is created as a Volkswagen VWX for 
Volkswagen models. If I signed on as Audi I am sure the label will run but 
the label will be created as Audi and then the QR code created will be 
wrong. 


Now I have several model indexes with the same situation, Lamborghini 
within an Audi Test group. Audi models within a Volkswagen test group and 
Bentley models within an Audi test group. 


Thanks,

Hello Mr. Thomas, 

You newly created carline code 211 has to exist in Verify as a certified 
model. In order to certify this carline you will need to unlock your test 
group and then add this carline to your test group in the Certified Models 
section on the Evap/Stnds/Models tab (see screen shot below). 

To unlock your test group navigate to MyCDX > Verify: Light Duty > Request 
Certificate and select Process Code "U=Unlock Request." 

After you have unlocked your test group and added this carline to the test

GTI index 022 


Hello [1x76 ] 

We created carline 211 under VWX division 1 for the Volkswagen GTI and ran 
the label (index 022) again and got the following business rule messages. 

To remind you, this model is certified in two Audi test groups. The 
information I put on the label input and at the Subconfiguration level are 
using ADX division 2 and the Audi test group names with associated sales 
numbers. If you would like to discuss please feel free to call me at, 248 
754 4213. 

Thanks, 

Richard

Hello Mr. Thomas, 


Business rule TG-BR67 was returned for this submission because the owner of the carline VWX is different 
than the submitter's manufacturer code ADX. 

Because this is the case VWX must grant ADX permission to use a VWX carline. 

For the VWX owner to grant permission for ADX to use its carline the VWX submitter must navigate to the 
Alternate Manufacturer tab of the Maintain Manufacturer Information module and make a submission 
granting ADX permission to do so. 

Business rule TG-BR89 indicates that this Carline 212 is not in the system. 

Please check to be sure that an accepted carline submission was made for Carline 212. 

After your test group submission is accepted a lock request should be made and the 'Yes' radio button 
should be selected for the 'Revised Certificate Needed' question. A comment can be added in the 
comment field about the 'Revised Certificate Needed' question indicating that a revised certificate is 
needed to certify VWX carlines for your general label submission. 


I will also call you to discuss.

Hi 11x76] 

L_i 

Please call me when you are available to talk a minute. Bill tried to enter this VWX division 1 carline 211 signed on 
as Audi, because it's an Audi test group, and it would not allow us to add this Volkswagen carline. 

The manufacturer code has to be Audi to add a carline to this Audi test group. This is the same type problem we 
have with the general label. 

I must enter this Volkswagen model as a Volkswagen in order to create a Volkswagen label because the QR code is 
created as a Volkswagen VWX for Volkswagen models. If I signed on as Audi I am sure the label will run but the 
label will be created as Audi and then the QR code created will be wrong. 

Now I have several model indexes with the same situation, Lamborghini within an Audi Test group. Audi models 
within a Volkswagen test group and Bentley models within an Audi test group. 

Thanks, 

Richard (248 754 4213)

After you have unlocked your test group and added this carline to the test 
group you will need to request another certificate and have your cert rep 
issue it. 


Please note that the information that you enter in your general label 
submission will have to match what you enter in the Certified Models 
section in your test group submission (i.e. Transmission Type, Transmission 
Lockup, Transition Creeper Gear, Total Number of Transition Gears, and 
Drive System). 

Please let me know if you have any further questions.

We created carline 211 under VWX division 1 for the Volkswagen GTI and ran 
the label (index 022) again and got the following business rule messages. 

To remind you, this model is certified in two Audi test groups. The 
information I put on the label input and at the Subconfiguration level are 
using ADX division 2 and the Audi test group names with associated sales 
numbers. If you would like to discuss please feel free to call me at, 248 
754 4213.

Hello Jim, 


I have recently submitted decision information requests for 2 vehicles (A6 and A7) for Audi test group 
DADXJ03.03UF. 


Some details: 

These vehicles are FEDV's and will support a running change letter which is on the way. 

The vehicles have stop/start as you should recall. We submitted tests under 4 configurations (see 
table below) 

Configuration 2 also has aevaporative tests which support a new evaporative family. This new 
family with "B" suffix is similar to the existing "A" suffix but with a 5 gram bleed canister. 

The vehicles all had high FE and will require mfr. re-tests if they are not selected by EPA.

I will try to get the letter to you by tomorrow morning. 


The main difference is that the vehicles now have start/stop. Comparing to MY2012, there is also a new 
engine code, which likely reflects a software change. I will ask though and forward a more detailed 
answer. 


Regarding fuel economy: 

For the A6: Compared to MY 2012, My 2013 was slightly worse for city, and 1 mpg better on highway. 
For the A7: Compared to MY 2012, the MY2013 is slightly worse for both city and highway. 


Also, per our recent agreement with Dave Good, we plan to average start / stop results only for the FTP 
and US06 tests. For the other tests (Flwy, SC03, Cold CO) we will use inactive configurations only for FE 
because Start-Stop mode has no effect. 


Thanks

Hi Jim, 


We did get a note through Richard Thomas (email from Dave). Thanks for the quick reply. 


On another topic, I uploaded another application today and tried to request a certificate for the Eos. This 
is a carryover test group (DVWXV02.03SA). You should see the request soon, unless it failed because of 
the GHG rule (I'm leaving before I find out it whether it passed VERFIY validation). 


Thanks

Hello Jim, 


FYII sent a request for certificate today for this test group (DADXJ03.03UF) with new evaporative family 
DADXR0140C7B. For this running change, I also submitted a revised initial application with the running 
change letters and other data (CSI, etc.) updated. 


Please review and let us know if you have questions to issue the certificate. 


Note - please cc Bill on any messages tomorrow as I will be out of the office Friday. 


Thanks, 

Mike

I will try to get the letter to you by tomorrow morning. 

The main difference is that the vehicles now have start/stop. Comparing to MY2012, there is also a new engine 
code, which likely reflects a software change. I will ask though and forward a more detailed answer. 

Regarding fuel economy: 

For the A6: Compared to MY 2012, My 2013 was slightly worse for city, and 1 mpg better on highway. 

For the A7: Compared to MY 2012, the MY2013 is slightly worse for both city and highway. 

Also, per our recent agreement with Dave Good, we plan to average start / stop results only for the FTP and US06 
tests. For the other tests (Flwy, SC03, Cold CO) we will use inactive configurations only for FE because Start-Stop 
mode has no effect. 

Thanks 

Mike

Hello Jim, 

I have recently submitted decision information requests for 2 vehicles (A6 and A7) for Audi test group 
DADXJ03.03UF. 

Some details: 

These vehicles are FEDV's and will support a running change letter which is on the way. 

The vehicles have stop/start as you should recall. We submitted tests under 4 configurations (see table 
below) 

Configuration 2 also has aevaporative tests which support a new evaporative family. This new family with 
"B" suffix is similar to the existing "A" suffix but with a 5 gram bleed canister. 

The vehicles all had high FE and will require mfr. re-tests if they are not selected by EPA.

Oliver & Len, 


I have some questions about Volkswagen's 2013 GHG Pre-Model year Report. 

First of all, thanks for using the EPA templates. It makes it easy for me to review your Pre-MY report 
information. 


1. Potential error in your fleet average calculations: Using the projected CREE fleet average estimates 
and CREE standards listed in your (attached) 2013 Pre-MY report spreadsheet, I come up with slightly 
different results for the total "Model Year Credits (Debits)" fields for car and trucks for 2012-2015 model 
years. For example, my calculations for 2013-2015 model year result in the following credit (Megagram) 
values: 


Category D.Good CREE Calcs 

2013 Pass Car (730,335) 

2013 Light Truck 87,527 

2014 Pass Car (79,674) 

2014 Light Truck (16,902) 

2015 Pass Car (424,806) 

2015 Light Truck (272,380) 


VW CREE values Comments 
(778,903) 

87,527 agrees with VW 

(91,543) 

(17,244) 

(395,074) 

(275,812) 


My calculations, for example, for 2013 cars are [(258 - 269)(550,837)(195,264)/1,000,000)] - 404,242 (A/C 
credits) = 778,903 credits. It looks like your calculations are not rounding the CREE standards and fleet 
average CREE values to the nearest whole gram/mile, as required by EPA regulations. 


Please advise.

3. Bugatti: Bugati models appear to be missing in your 2013-2015 templates. 


Please advise 

4. Three AB&T Spreadsheets: Your report contains three AB&T spreadsheets. None of them include projections 
for 2014 or 2015 model year credits. Please combine the three spreadsheets into one AB&T spreadsheet which 
includes a listing for 2014 and 2015 credits. 

Please advise. 

5. A/C Leakage and Efficiency Credits: Your 2013 Pre-MY report doesn't contain any details of how the A/C credits 
were generated for each model. Please provide a little more detail about how the A/C leakage and A/C efficiency 
credits will be generated for 2012 and 2013 model year vehicles, and (if possible) 2014 and 2015 model year 
vehicles—similar to the level of detail provided in the EPA templates available at http://www.epa.gov/otaq/regs/ld- 
hwy/greenhouse/ld-ghg.htm. 

Please advise. 

6. Possible Merger of VW and Porsche: Over the past year, there have been some articles in the press about a 
potential merger of VW & Porsche. If possible, please provide a brief summary of the status of that possible 
merger and any potential effects on VW's 2013 GHG compliance plans. 

In summary, please email us the answers to my questions and send us a corrected 2013 PreMY Report (if needed) 
as soon as practicable. If you like, we will be glad to schedule a conference call at your convenience to discuss 
these questions and the potential errors. 

Note: I encrypted the attached files using the same password as I used last year when I sent Richard Thomas for 
the 2013 FE label spreadsheets. I'll call you with the password, just in case you need it.

Ex. 4 - CBI 


3. Bugatti: Bugati models appear to be missing in your 2013-2015 templates. 

Please advise 

4. Three AB&T Spreadsheets: Your report contains three AB&T spreadsheets. None of them include projections 
for 2014 or 2015 model year credits. Please combine the three spreadsheets into one AB&T spreadsheet which 
includes a listing for 2014 and 2015 credits. 

Please advise. 

5. A/C Leakage and Efficiency Credits: Your 2013 Pre-MY report doesn't contain any details of how the A/C credits 
were generated for each model. Please provide a little more detail about how the A/C leakage and A/C efficiency 
credits will be generated for 2012 and 2013 model year vehicles, and (if possible) 2014 and 2015 model year 
vehicles—similar to the level of detail provided in the EPA templates available at http://www.epa.gov/otaq/regs/ld- 
hwy/greenhouse/ld-ghg.htm. 

Please advise. 

6. Possible Merger of VW and Porsche: Over the past year, there have been some articles in the press about a 
potential merger of VW & Porsche. If possible, please provide a brief summary of the status of that possible 
merger and any potential effects on VW's 2013 GHG compliance plans. 

In summary, please email us the answers to my questions and send us a corrected 2013 PreMY Report (if needed) 
as soon as practicable. If you like, we will be glad to schedule a conference call at your convenience to discuss 
these questions and the potential errors. 

Note: I encrypted the attached files using the same password as I used last year when I sent Richard Thomas for 
the 2013 FE label spreadsheets. I'll call you with the password, just in case you need it. 

Thanks

Hi Jim, 

I have processed Revised Test Group and Certificate Requests for the following TG/Evap combinations: 

Changes to the Manufacturer Codes and Division numbers were required to comply with Verify Fuel

Hi Jim, 


As a follow up to my voice message, I am trying to make a minor correction to the test group data for the 
above test group (evap DF's need correction). 


However, I get a rejection message indicating a possible open cert request. I ran a report for open cert 
requests which shows one item for this test group (below). 


I think perhaps you could reject this and I will re-submit, or let me know if you need more info or have any 
suggestions. 


Thanks, 

Mike

Hello Jim, 


As a follow up for our running change for test group (DADXJ03.03UF) with new evaporative family 
DADXR0140C7B: 


It was necessary to correct the application to correct some minor errors in deterioration factors. So, that 
was done and submitted today. Due to the VERIFY locking issues I have requested another certificate. 


Please note that the running change letter is in the application. Let us know if you need anything further 
from us to process the new certificate. 


Thanks, 

Mike

FYII sent a request for certificate today for this test group (DADXJ03.03UF) with new evaporative family 
DADXR0140C7B. For this running change, I also submitted a revised initial application with the running change 
letters and other data (CSI, etc.) updated. 


Please review and let us know if you have questions to issue the certificate. 


Note - please cc Bill on any messages tomorrow as I will be out of the office Friday.

The main difference is that the vehicles now have start/stop. Comparing to MY2012, there is also a new engine 
code, which likely reflects a software change. I will ask though and forward a more detailed answer. 


Regarding fuel economy: 

For the A6: Compared to MY 2012, My 2013 was slightly worse for city, and 1 mpg better on highway. 

For the A7: Compared to MY 2012, the MY2013 is slightly worse for both city and highway. 

Also, per our recent agreement with Dave Good, we plan to average start / stop results only for the FTP and US06 
tests. For the other tests (Flwy, SC03, Cold CO) we will use inactive configurations only for FE because Start-Stop 
mode has no effect. 

Thanks 

Mike

Hello Jim, 

I have recently submitted decision information requests for 2 vehicles (A6 and A7) for Audi test group 
DADXJ03.03UF. 

Some details: 

These vehicles are FEDV's and will support a running change letter which is on the way.

The vehicles have stop/start as you should recall. We submitted tests under 4 configurations (see table 
below) 

Configuration 2 also has aevaporative tests which support a new evaporative family. This new family with 
"B" suffix is similar to the existing "A" suffix but with a 5 gram bleed canister. 

The vehicles all had high FE and will require mfr. re-tests if they are not selected by EPA.

Hello Jim, 


Today we submitted the application and request for certificate for Volkswagen carryover test group 
DVWXV02.0U5N. This test group is the one featuring the 2.0L TDI without SCR (Jetta, Audi A3, 
SportWagen). 


This test group is carryover but includes two new models introduced as FEDV's (Beetle, Beetle 
Convertible). 


We would like to request that this be high priority for VW group due to sales volume and timing. Please 
let me know if you have any questions. 


Thanks,

Hello Mr. Ball, 

We are about to finish our MY2007 high mileage program and we find one big problem to procure the 75% of the 
useful life vehicle.

20229 vehicles sold 

3.6L/VR6 (FSI) 276hp/280hp 

LEVI I/Bin5 

75% useful life: 90.000mi 

The vehicle should have 90.000mi or more. The closest vehicle we can find in Michigan and/or California is 
85.000mi though 400 letters to customers. 

I would like to bring the vehicle in this week, in order to stay in the time schedule. 

I will proceed that way unless instructed otherwise from you. 

Thank you very much.

Hi Jim, 


Thanks for the notice, some issues caused my original cert request to be rejected (see below). 


As it turns out, I was forced to make minor corrections to the DF values in the CSI. These values are now 
identical to previous years (a data communication error caused the wrong values in the original version). 

I have submitted the corrected application (R01) and received an cert request (accepted by verify, so you 
should also have it) / 


Just a reminder this is rather high priority for us, so any assistance you can provide on this one would be 
appreciated.

Mike

Attached are updated documents that address the issues identified within you most recent email. In 
addition I have included responses to the each of the identified issues in red below. Furthermore a 
statement has been included that address the uncertainty associated with Porsche. Please let me know if 
there are any additional questions. Thanks! 

1. Potential error in your fleet average calculations: Using the 
projected CREE fleet average estimates and CREE standards listed in your 
(attached) 2013 Pre-MY report spreadsheet, I come up with slightly 
different results for the total "Model Year Credits (Debits)" fields 
for car and trucks for 2012-2015 model years. For example, my 
calculations for 2013-2015 model year result in the following credit 
(Megagram) values: 


Category 

D.Good CREE Calcs 

VW CREE values Comments 

2013 Pass Car 

(730,335) 

(778,903) 

2013 Light Truck 
agrees with VW 

87,527 

87,527 

2014 Pass Car 

(79,674) 

(91,543) 

2014 Light Truck 

(16,902) 

(17,244) 

2015 Pass Car 

(424,806) 

(395,074) 

2015 Light Truck 

(272,380) 

(275,812) 


My calculations, for example, for 2013 cars are [(258 - 
269)(550,837)(195,264)/1,000,000)] -404,242 (A/C credits) = 778,903 
credits. It looks like your calculations are not rounding the CREE 
standards and fleet average CREE values to the nearest whole gram/mile, 
as required by EPA regulations. 

Please advise. 

Attached are updated documents where CREE Fleet Average estimates have been corrected by using the 
appropriate rounding technique. 

2. Standards Calculator - Potential error in projected production 
volume: The projected production volume values listed in the 2013-2015 
Standards calculator spreadsheets don't agree with the projected 
production volume listed in the 2013-2015 fleet average spreadsheets. 

For example the 2013 car production volume is listed as 565,654 in the 
2013 car standards calculator but 550,837 in the 2013 car fleet average 
spreadsheet. Also, please note that a standards calculator spreadsheet 
was not included in your Pre-MY report for 2013 model year trucks.

VW FOIA, EPA

2017-FFP 003666 












Please advise. 

EPA Calculator documents have been updated to correct errors in projected planning volumes. Planning volumes 
are now aligned throughout the report MY 2013 - 2015. 


3. Bugatti: Bugati models appear to be missing in your 2013-2015 
templates. 

Please advise 

Bugatti planning volumes not available. 

4. Three AB&T Spreadsheets: Your report contains three AB&T 
spreadsheets. None of them include projections for 2014 or 2015 model 
year credits. Please combine the three spreadsheets into one AB&T 
spreadsheet which includes a listing for 2014 and 2015 credits. 

Please advise. 

AB&T spreadsheet has been updated with MY 2013 - 2015 appearing on 1 spreadsheet as requested. 

5. A/C Leakage and Efficiency Credits: Your 2013 Pre-MY report doesn't 
contain any details of how the A/C credits were generated for each 
model. Please provide a little more detail about how the A/C leakage 
and A/C efficiency credits will be generated for 2012 and 2013 model 
year vehicles, and (if possible) 2014 and 2015 model year 

vehicles—similar to the level of detail provided in the EPA templates 
available at http://www.epa.gov/otaq/regs/ld-hwy/greenhouse/ld-ghg.htm. 

Please advise. 

Support documentation has been provided that demonstrates how credits were generated for each model. 

6. Possible Merger of VW and Porsche: Over the past year, there have 
been some articles in the press about a potential merger of VW & 

Porsche. If possible, please provide a brief summary of the status of 
that possible merger and any potential effects on VW's 2013 GHG 
compliance plans. 

"On September 8, 2011, Volkswagen AG announced that the planned merger with Porsche Automobile Holding SE 
(Porsche SE) cannot be implemented within the time frame laid down in the Comprehensive Agreement. The 
decision was reached by the Board of Management of Volkswagen AG following discussions with Porsche SE. 
Nevertheless, all parties remain committed to the goal of creating an integrated automotive group with Porsche 
and are convinced that they will succeed in doing so. 

The existing legal hurdles, and particularly those resulting from the ongoing proceedings and actions against 
Porsche SE in Germany and the USA due to alleged market manipulation, made it impossible from Volkswagen's 
perspective to quantify the economic risks and hence to arrive at a valuation for Porsche SE that could be used to 
determine the exchange ratio. 

Over the past months, Volkswagen AG and Porsche SE have conducted in-depth examinations of whether there are 
other possibilities, in addition to the put/call options contained in the Comprehensive Agreement, that can be 
implemented by all parties involved in order to achieve the goal of creating the integrated automotive group with 
Porsche [AG, the operating business,] on economically feasible terms [earlier than 2014], These examinations are 
still ongoing."

Verify Question 

Jim, 



I revised the Initial Application for the test group DVWXJ02.03UA to reflect new tests we submitted 
representing new calibration for Start of Production on the worst case vehicle (Tiguan 4Motion 
automatic). My question is, do we need a revised Certificate if we already have one based on carryover 
data from 2012 model year? the Carline already exists on the Certificate and the tests were all waived.

Thanks Jim. 

That was my thought as well, just making sure. Yes, the Application was revised with the new worst case 
data in the CSI.

If the new data was waived and the Part 1 was revised with the new CSI emission data then I think you 
are done since the certificate is unchanged.

I revised the Initial Application for the test group DVWXJ02.03UA to reflect new tests we submitted representing 
new calibration for Start of Production on the worst case vehicle (Tiguan 4Motion automatic). My question is, do 
we need a revised Certificate if we already have one based on carryover data from 2012 model year? the Carline 
already exists on the Certificate and the tests were all waived. 

Thanks

2013 PreMY report questions & potential errors 


[attachment "winmail.dat" deleted by David Good/AA/USEPA/US] 

[attachment "message_body.rtf" deleted by David Good/AA/USEPA/US] 
[attachment "2013 Pre MY Report.pdf" deleted by David Good/AA/USEPA/US]

Attached are updated documents that address the issues identified within you most recent email. In 
addition I have included responses to the each of the identified issues in red below. Furthermore a 
statement has been included that address the uncertainty associated with Porsche. Please let me know if 
there are any additional questions. Thanks! 

1. Potential error in your fleet average calculations: Using the 
projected CREE fleet average estimates and CREE standards listed in your 
(attached) 2013 Pre-MY report spreadsheet, I come up with slightly 
different results for the total "Model Year Credits (Debits)" fields 
for car and trucks for 2012-2015 model years. For example, my 
calculations for 2013-2015 model year result in the following credit 
(Megagram) values: 


Category 

D.Good CREE Calcs 

VW CREE values Comments 

2013 Pass Car 

(730,335) 

(778,903) 

2013 Light Truck 

87,527 

87,527 

agrees with VW 
2014 Pass Car 

(79,674) 

(91,543) 

2014 Light Truck 

(16,902) 

(17,244) 

2015 Pass Car 

(424,806) 

(395,074) 

2015 Light Truck 

(272,380) 

(275,812) 


My calculations, for example, for 2013 cars are [(258 - 
269)(550,837)(195,264)/1,000,000)] -404,242 (A/C credits) = 778,903 
credits. It looks like your calculations are not rounding the CREE 
standards and fleet average CREE values to the nearest whole gram/mile, 
as required by EPA regulations. 

Please advise. 

Attached are updated documents where CREE Fleet Average estimates have been corrected by using the 
appropriate rounding technique. 

2. Standards Calculator - Potential error in projected production 
volume: The projected production volume values listed in the 2013-2015 
Standards calculator spreadsheets don't agree with the projected 
production volume listed in the 2013-2015 fleet average spreadsheets. 

For example the 2013 car production volume is listed as 565,654 in the 
2013 car standards calculator but 550,837 in the 2013 car fleet average 
spreadsheet. Also, please note that a standards calculator spreadsheet

VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 003675 











was not included in your Pre-MY report for 2013 model year trucks. 


Please advise. 

EPA Calculator documents have been updated to correct errors in projected planning volumes. Planning volumes 
are now aligned throughout the report MY 2013 - 2015. 

3. Bugatti: Bugati models appear to be missing in your 2013-2015 
templates. 

Please advise 

Bugatti planning volumes not available. 

4. Three AB&T Spreadsheets: Your report contains three AB&T 
spreadsheets. None of them include projections for 2014 or 2015 model 
year credits. Please combine the three spreadsheets into one AB&T 
spreadsheet which includes a listing for 2014 and 2015 credits. 

Please advise. 

AB&T spreadsheet has been updated with MY 2013 - 2015 appearing on 1 spreadsheet as requested. 

5. A/C Leakage and Efficiency Credits: Your 2013 Pre-MY report doesn't 
contain any details of how the A/C credits were generated for each 
model. Please provide a little more detail about how the A/C leakage 
and A/C efficiency credits will be generated for 2012 and 2013 model 
year vehicles, and (if possible) 2014 and 2015 model year 

vehicles—similar to the level of detail provided in the EPA templates 
available at http://www.epa.gov/otaq/regs/ld-hwy/greenhouse/ld-ghg.htm. 

Please advise. 

Support documentation has been provided that demonstrates how credits were generated for each model. 

6. Possible Merger of VW and Porsche: Over the past year, there have 
been some articles in the press about a potential merger of VW & 

Porsche. If possible, please provide a brief summary of the status of 
that possible merger and any potential effects on VW's 2013 GHG 
compliance plans. 

"On September 8, 2011, Volkswagen AG announced that the planned merger with Porsche Automobile Holding SE 
(Porsche SE) cannot be implemented within the time frame laid down in the Comprehensive Agreement. The 
decision was reached by the Board of Management of Volkswagen AG following discussions with Porsche SE. 
Nevertheless, all parties remain committed to the goal of creating an integrated automotive group with Porsche 
and are convinced that they will succeed in doing so. 

The existing legal hurdles, and particularly those resulting from the ongoing proceedings and actions against 
Porsche SE in Germany and the USA due to alleged market manipulation, made it impossible from Volkswagen's 
perspective to quantify the economic risks and hence to arrive at a valuation for Porsche SE that could be used to 
determine the exchange ratio. 

Over the past months, Volkswagen AG and Porsche SE have conducted in-depth examinations of whether there are 
other possibilities, in addition to the put/call options contained in the Comprehensive Agreement, that can be 
implemented by all parties involved in order to achieve the goal of creating the integrated automotive group with 
Porsche [AG, the operating business,] on economically feasible terms [earlier than 2014], These examinations are 
still ongoing."

Hi Jim, 


I just checked our copy of the MY 2013 pre-certification document, and did not see any mention of plug in 
(looking at the table of page 10 ). The vehicle is clearly described a standard HEV in our data set we 
received. 


If you do have a plug in described, can you tell me where so we can resolve or correct if necessary? 


Thanks

On page 2 and page 6 it mentions a 1.4LTFSI plug-in hybrid Jetta. It doesn't specify the test group # on 
those pages but I see no other on the chart.

Hi Jim, 

I just checked our copy of the MY 2013 pre-certification document, and did not see any mention of plug in 
(looking at the table of page 10 ). The vehicle is clearly described a standard HEV in our data set we 
received. 

If you do have a plug in described, can you tell me where so we can resolve or correct if necessary? 

Thanks

Hello Jim, 

I just submitted a decision request for the new 1.4L Jetta Hybrid (1.4L), for test group DVXXV01.4PHE. 

This vehicle has new technology all around (engine, evaporative family, OBD system, ORVR system). Our 
understanding is that EPA will most likely want to do confirmatory tests.

Sorry for the confusion guys. The Certification Preview cover letter (I created) did describe it as a plug-in 
hybrid as originally planned, however those plans have been delayed. The 2013 model year vehicle is not 
a plug in.

Okay, I suspected it was something like that but wanted to find out if they were more than one version 
coming. 

What about the evaporative tests? I don't see any. Is there another EDV coming?

Hi Jim, 


The decision information for the Jetta Hybrid has been corrected to include the evaporative tests, as well 
as 3 additional supporting FTP tests. 


Sorry about the omission, I was under the idea that the d.i. was relevant only for exhaust tests.

Richard, 

Attached is a spreadsheet with all the 2013 FE Label data in Verify as of 6/15/2012. 

The data highlighted in green have errors. Please correct the errors when you get a chance. 

Note that I'm still sending releasable error-free data to DOE for posting on www.fueleconomy.gov on the 
1st and 15th of the month. 

Thanks
