If it aint a CAT itsa DOG
MN just got a 3 mil grant from the EPA to outfit trucks with DPF's, APU's, etc... This is NOT manditory, but its a step closer to making it mandatory. These c*** suckers!!!!!!! Who in their right mind is going to elect to put this crap on their truck?? They will pay 50% of the cost of a DPF or an APU if you put one on your truck. I can see putting on an APU on a big rig cause they will save idle time and fuel, but who in the hell will put on a DPF if they don't have to. See i think this is going to flop. The only ones that will outfit their trucks are the state, county, and local municipalities so that they don't loose their funding. I guarantee you that if you choose not to update your engines with this stuff you will loose your federal or state funding for your municipality. Also once they see that private fleets don't want DPF's on their trucks they will mandate it. This is just like COMIFORNIA! Sorry for the rant, this just p***es me right off!
