So for example if you own truck with 1996 model year that truck would have to meet 2010 engine emission standards by Jan 1, 2016. However, if you installed diesel particulate filter (DPF) on that truck by Jan 1, 2014 you could run that truck until Jan 1, 2023 at which time it would have to meet the 2010 engine standards.
