Test vehicles shall be subjected to a test run of a minimum 2500 and a
maximum 10000 km.

In case that several tyres of different specifications are available for the vehicle type, the tyre having the maximum rolling resistance shall be selected for test. Prior to the test, the tyres shall be inflated to the pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer according to the tyres?€? maximum test load and maximum test speed.
The tyres shall have a tread depth within 90 % and 50 % of the initial tread depth, alternatively new tyres that have been run-in with the test vehicle may be used.
5.2 Determination of running resistance

5.3.1.2 Measuring system shall be designed as to measure the fuel
consumptions under urban, highway and expressway cycles of C-WTVC Cycle respectively. See Annex F for the data of C-WTVC Cycle.
5.3.1.3 The relevant metering devices shall meet the following accuracy 5.4 Test procedure
5.4.1 The vehicle shall be arranged according to C.2.2.1 and connected with the testing equipment such as fuel flowmeter and emission sampling system to confirm that the fuel pipes exhibit no leakage and evacuated adequately. 5.4.2 Adjust chassis dynamometer according to C.2.2 or C.3.2.
5.4.3 During the test, the vehicle shall be so loaded as to ensure the vehicle is absent from any slipping. For towing vehicles, vertical load shall be applied on saddle position. If the testing organization can demonstrate that no slipping phenomenon that may have significant influence on measuring results would occur, load may not be applied with the agreement of the vehicle manufacturer. 5.4.4 Set the chassis dynamometer as road resistance simulation mode, and well connect with data collection system and driver assistant system.
5.4.5 During the test, simultaneously operate the relevant equipment for road simulation such as cooling fan, speedometer and time recorder. Prior to the formal test, it?€?s appropriate to run one or two complete C-WTVC cycles or use other methods to enable the test vehicle and chassis dynamometer fully
warmed up.
5.4.6 During the test, select the appropriate gears depending on the vehicle characteristics. The gear-shift strategy shall be determined by both vehicle manufacturer and testing organization. When the vehicle fails to reach the speed specified by C-WTVC cycle at a higher gear and the speed deviation exceeds the specified value in 5.5.1, it shall be possible to shift to a lower gear to continue the test, and then re-shift to the higher gear after the vehicle accesses the constant speed that a higher gear applies. Gear shift shall be rapid and stable during the test.
5.4.7 When the vehicle decelerates, it shall be necessary to fully release the accelerator pedal and keep the clutch engaged, and then disengage clutch, down shift or park until the test vehicle speed is reduced to the minimum stable speed of such gear. Where necessary, vehicle brake and auxiliary brake device may be used.
5.4.8 The test vehicle shall run on three complete C-WTVC cycle and record test result at the end of each C-WTVC cycle respectively. If the weighting coefficient of characteristic mileage distribution of any one part is 0, it shall be possible to skip over this part and proceed to the subsequent part.
