EPA question

i was reading on one of the forume that in california they now have to retrofit current emissions equipment to older vehicles. also the epa has planned to make california regs the standard nation wide. so will all states be forced into smog testing to get licenses. if so i have some thinking to do. i dont plan on removing and reinstalling dpf every time i renew registration.

Come on now,don't you trust our: know-it-all, trust us we Know whats best for everyone our great CARB (Ca. Air Resources Board)bsflagbsflag:throw up

Anyway to your question, CARB is forcing us to either retrofit, replace, or retire older medium/heavy duty trucks in a phase out timeline. Even our diesel pump engines will meet the same fate. If you want to replace an engine with some gov grant cost share, the old block must be physically destroyed so it can never be used again. It is total BS that we are able to buy, at the time, trucks/engines that were 100% smog legal at purchase and then later on bureaucrats say opps, we were wrong and you can no longer use it. Sorry but it is on your dime.

I could keep but we would be here all night. These are the same simple minded people that once suggested that we should pull water tanks with our discs so we can spray water over the disc to stop dust.

isnt this covered by the "expost facto" law. you cant make a law that makes something already done illegal. thats the gest of it as i remember from constitution study in school. like you cant see someone do an act, and make it illegal the next day and arrest him because it wasnt illegal when he did it.
