A few of these have been started but what's the chances of them actually doing anything besides them knowing who has dpf delete. Not sure I would want my name on something like that.

biggest thing i see is, why did they regulate the small trucks, why havent i heard anything on the bigger trucks out on the road. i mean, our trucks i know for sure do not cause this greenhouse gases and global warming all on their own. why does the government have to control america, thats not what it was built on.

at least, thats what i thought.... o.O

All new Semi Trucks have DPF systems too!

My neighbor has a trucking business and he bought THREE new trucks last year... Two of them he parked in front of the dealers front door Cuz they broke on him every 500 miles

EGR cooler, EGR valve, Radiator, Bla, Bla, Bla

He spends THOUSANDS per trucks pretty much weekly... He only has one new truck left and recently just rebuilt a couple of his trustworthy 90's Kenworths

All new diesels suck with the new EPA requirements!

I still say that by signing that you are just letting the EPA know who to look for. I have been dipped multiple times but that is the far as it has gone and I would like to keep it that way. Just my

The new tractor trailers have it all. EGR, DPF, DEF all of it. Not all of them are bad. I have personally put over 100k on a brand new Mack and the only times it was back at the dealer was for service. Not one warranty claim in over 100k. It's really the "luck" of the draw with these new trucks and emissions systems. Also my Mack was averaging 5.9 mpg loaded and around 7 empty.

I think there's no issue with regulating the new vehicles that roll off the assembly lines for emissions, but for that small fraction of individuals, like us in this case, that would like to remove it for performance/reliability/longevity reasons, I think we should be able to do so freely. There are bigger fish to fry out there....and I look at this as just another way the government is trying to control small business.

Just my
