Manufacturers have yet to include fuel & emissions cleaning in their maintenance schedules. However, a vehicle can lose up to 15% of its original efficiency after only 30,000 miles due to carbon buildup. For optimum performance and minimum emissions, most manufacturers of fuel and emissions system cleaners recommend the service be performed at least once a year, with a booster treatment used at every oil change.
Based on our analysis of the EU Emissions Trading System, EDF has identified six major lessons from the EU ETS, and developed policy recommendations to strengthen or establish strong emissions trading systems in countries, regions and states around the world.
The PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve and breather element work together in the vehicle's emissions control system. The PCV valve regulates the flow of gases to the intake manifold. The breather element, or crankcase breather, keeps foreign particles from entering the crankcase. They work together to keep gases and vapors from being expelled through the exhaust, reducing vehicle emissions. The PCV valve and breather element keep your vehicle running cleaner and help reduce sludge and contaminant buildup. During the service the PCV valve and breather element are removed and inspected. If the mileage interval and/or condition indicates replacement, new components are installed.
It's not practical to load the wiring diagrams here for reference, but here is the Emission Control System diagram from the Owner's Handbook that is referred to in column F.

Meeting the Most Stringent Emissions Standards is as Easy as 1 - 2 - 3!
Tecogen ultra-low emissions retrofit kits deliver simple, cost-effective and robust solutions for meeting even the most stringent emissions standards. The patented "Ultera" system is available for installation on select rich-burn natural gas engines. The patented "Ultera" system provides peace of mind by widening the air-fuel control window by nearly four times and can lower NOx and CO (criteria pollutants) to near-zero levels without the need for complex additional controls or frequent maintenance.
Tecogen originally developed and patented the Ultera-low emission control technology for its own CHP products and has since decided to make the technology available for retrofit on non-Tecogen applications.
Engine emissions systems - how they work and why - Allpar
A number of design flaws have limited the effectiveness of scheme (Jones ., 2007, p. 64). In the initial 2005-07 period, emission caps were not tight enough to drive a significant reduction in emissions (CCC, 2008, p. 149). The total allocation of allowances turned out to exceed actual emissions. This drove the carbon price down to zero in 2007. This oversupply was caused because the allocation of allowances by the EU was based on emissions data from the European Environmental Agency in Copenhagen, which uses a horizontal activity-based emissions definition similar to the United Nations, the EU ETS Transaction log in Brussels, but a vertical installation-based emissions measurement system. This caused an oversupply of 200 million tonnes (10% of market) in the EU ETS in the first phase and collapsing prices.
In the United States, the ""-related emission trading system was principally conceived by , a administration attorney. Gray worked with the (EDF), who worked with the EPA to write the bill that became law as part of the Clean Air Act of 1990. The new emissions cap on NOx and gases took effect in 1995, and according to magazine, those acid rain emissions dropped 3 million tons that year. In 1997, the CoP agreed, in what has been described as a watershed in international environmental treaty making, the Kyoto Protocol where 38 developed countries(Annex 1 countries.) committed themselves to targets and timetables for the reduction of GHGs. These targets for developed countries are often referred to as Assigned Amounts.
