Thanks for trying, freebird
With all sorts of browser windows open, that are relaying from one fed site to another, I'm not sure how to track back to where I started...
But I found an update table that showed 49USC 32901 had an update, which was:
Amended by Public Law 110-140 sec. 103 121 stat. 1501
I found that Public Laws in the range of 110-140 were enacted by the first session of the 110 Congress, so Thomas.gov could find it in Public Laws.
They re-arranged item numbers while adding new info. So now a(17) reads:
'non-passenger automobile' means an automobile that is not a passenger automobile or a work truck"; and ()by adding at the end of the following:
(19) 'work truck' means a vehicle that -
"(A) is rated at between 8,500 and 10,000 pounds gross vehicle weight; and etc.etc.
Then the previous definition of "passenger automobile", which was (16), was re-labeled as (18).
All I'm trying to do is to find out if a small SUV is considered a "category 1 truck', where cat 1 truck was further clarifed as a "non-passenger automobile".
So now it's back to understanding their definition of "non-passenger automobile".
Why am I doing all this? If the new 'category 1 truck' gets 5 or more Combined MPG greater than the old eligible vehicle's Combined MPG that is being turned in, then it's $4500 instead of $3500.
If a 'passenger automobile" is the new vehicle, then the new car has to get 10 Combined MPG or better than the old vehicle to get $4,500.
