MOVES (Motor Vehicle Emission Simulator) - Frequent Questions
How can I reduce the long time needed to run the Nonroad emission factor post-processing scripts?
Can N2O (nitrous oxide) emissions be estimated in the MOVES Nonroad model?
How do I get carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) results for Nonroad equipment?
Does MOVES2010a incorporate anticipated improvements in VOC emission factors resulting from improved fuel economy?
What is the difference between extended idling and normal idling? Is it possible to get distinct idling emission output for any vehicle type? Can this be done in the emission rate mode, or only inventory mode?
Why is it that when the brakewear and tirewear components of PM are written out using the "Inventory" calculation method, there is no associated VMT/activity data written to the "movesactivityoutput" table along with it for the SCCs pertaining to brakewea

What does MOVES assume for future year fleet fuel efficiency?
Why doesn't my output VMT match my input VMT?
Why in my nonroad results do I have a fuelTypeID not listed in the FuelType table?
How do I get emission factors or inventory totals for Nonroad equipment aggregated by the various categories used by MOVES?
How do I output the population of each of the 13 MOVES sourcetypes sub-classified based on the fuel type?
When I click on Produce Summary Report following an Emission Rates run, why do I get an error message that says "Database error occurred trying to produce report header table"?
If I uncheck the "Refueling Displacement Vapor Loss" and the "Refueling Spillage Loss" boxes in the pollutants and processes pane, then the Stage II inputs in the CountyYear table are not used and no further adjustment is necessary. Is that correct? This
