Re: EPA Settles with EDGE Over Tuners Allowing DPF Delete

The most important part though to us the consumer is the following.

Quote:
"This settlement holds Edge Products accountable for selling devices that allow consumers to disable the emission controls on their vehicles by requiring the company to pay a penalty, buy back the devices, and perform a project to offset the air pollution resulting from the Clean Air Act violations.”

“Although Edge stopped selling the illegal devices in mid-2011, the consent decree requires Edge to offer to buy back the devices from anyone who possesses one. In order to sell the device back to Edge, the truck from which the device came must be returned to its original factory programming. Edge is also required to spend at least $157,600 to implement an emission mitigation project to offset the excess PM emissions that it caused. Edge will use the additional funds to offer rebates to individuals who own old wood-burning stoves and who wish to replace them with cleaner burning appliances such as new pellet stoves or EPA-certified wood stoves."
Which is pretty much inline with what has happened in the past. And what we can expect to happen to SCT, H&S and eventually Spartan.

Yup. I'll be selling my truck very soon. End up getting a gasser and using the 2012 for towing the heavy stuff. All this bs between the crap going on with guns and the EPA nonsense. I'm not sure which one makes me more irritated.

how will they buy back the programmers though? I mean that is asking way to much there. I hope they don't think that will happen.

I'm hanging tight... I'm watching this and other political things reach a boiling point, just like all of you are. We're heading toward a standoff at the very least, imHo.. the thing about that is there will be a result.. the result may be that we're all issued an allowance of fuel and vehicle that matches our talents, the other result is what I think will happen: most this crap about guns, taxes, epa nazis, over spending and political correctness will join hoffa.. this country has never been as divided since the war of northern aggression.. .. something has gotta give, or something Is going to break.. its really that simple.

Actually, they do think it will happen. As I said, this isn't the first time they have forced a company to do a buy back. Can't remember who did the O2 sensor that the EPA went after, and another time they went after Dodge.

So why the heck are they doing this? Are they going to stop sell racing slicks because people do burnouts before doing a 1/4 mile resulting in "harmful" **** in the air? Why doesn't the EPA do something more effective and fine tobacco company for every cig they sell? I'd rather them do that then ban tuners. Why doesn't the EPA all ride bicycles every where or take public transit to meetings to their solar powered offices with no petroleum based products. They can go **** themselves shove it up their *** and let Obama suck it off for them to.
