Emissions Tests Performed at Wiygul Automotive Clinic for your Fairfax Station, Va Vehicle

Some hybrid vehicles are exempt from a biennial emissions test and inspection requirement in Fairfax Station, VA. According to the Code of Virginia (§46.2-1178.B.1.), a "qualified hybrid motor vehicle" is exempted from the vehicle emissions inspection requirement if it obtains a rating from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency of at least 50 miles per gallon during city fuel economy tests unless observations from the On-Road Emissions program indicates that the hybrid vehicle may not meet current emissions standards.

According to the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), a "qualified hybrid motor vehicle" is a motor vehicle that meets applicable regulatory requirements, meets or exceeds federal motor vehicle standards for gasoline powered passenger cars, and can draw propulsion energy both from gasoline or diesel fuel and a rechargeable energy storage system.

The Virginia DEQ "On-Road Emissions Program" consists of equipment that directs an infrared and ultra violet beam across one lane of traffic to measure exhaust pollutants of vehicles as they drive by. Pollutants that are measured are hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, and nitric oxide. As the vehicle passes the equipment, a camera takes a picture of the vehicle’s license plate while the measurements are taken of the vehicle’s exhaust. This process allows a large number of vehicles to be observed with little or no inconvenience to the vehicle operator.

Got questions or concerns about an emissions test on your hybrid in Fairfax Station, VA? Please contact the experts on the emissions test for hybrids in Fairfax Station, VA – Wiygul Automotive Clinic.
