Do those reports refer to specific areas?2007 diesel trucks class 6 and below will also be required to pass an annual emissions test as reported in "The Washington Report" in the "PMAA Journal" Spring 2005 publication.
why do you think their will be a reduction in power due to the lower sulfer in the fuel i dont think the sulfer in the fuel right know gives us anymore power right now or does it????There are other time lines in between but by December 2014, All diesel fuel must comply with the 15-ppm low sulfer standard. By then, we'll be lucky if our trucks will have a diesel engine in them capable of pulling their "OWN" weight much less anything hitched to them.
CRICKEYDOG so what you are saying is that you other post is just what you think and not facts, but what about the 2007 only able to run on the new low sulfer .01% is that a fact or what just wanted to know because i like the red diesel because it is free for me
I use to live in New Mexico. Every six months your car needed to pass a "safety" inspection. Without fail, your headlights were ALWAYS out of limit by some slightess imaginary fraction of a bubble. Unless you ponied up an extra $10 for the headlight adjustment you would fail the safety inspection. You could say I'll get it fixed and come back, but you had to pay the inspection fee all over again. Lets see, inspection fee $15, headlight adjustment $10. You got your headlights adjusted. It was a major scam run by the gas stations, they all did it, including the dealers. What a rip. I was happy to leave New Mexico. Wonder if they still have the same rip off going today.California currently has no safety inspections. CHP used to run occasional roadblocks where they ran the most basic checks... speedo calibration and headlight aiming, but that's all they have ever done on noncommercial vehicles. That stopped sometime during the 70s.
GROSS POLLUTER is what it's referred to in the California Vehicle Code.No... and as of now, Diesels are smog exempt anyways, so even if someone reports you, the DMV would see the license as belonging to a Diesel and ignore it.
I seem to recall that the law says something about smoke being heavy enough to obscure the license plate and create a hazard to drivers following, but I'm not positive.
Diesel soot tends to drop pretty quickly. What they're after is the guy with the '75 Impala with a holed piston and a cracked head blowing thick grey/blue/white smoke that hangs over the road for 10 minutes.
Given your last statement about weak diesels--if true, this would either increase demand for "old" diesels or work to effectively kill the market altogether (such as in the early days of GM's diesels).No. That's why we ordered a 2006. The 2007's will have even more emission junk on them and the 2007's will only burn the new diesel fuel yet to be produced later this year. 2007 diesel truck's class 6 and below will also be required to pass an annual emissions test as reported in "The Washington Report" in the "PMAA Journal" Spring 2005 publication. 2006 and older model diesel's will burn both diesel fuel's and will not require annual emission testing as of the published date of the report. If that's not a reason to buy a 2006 model diesel I don't know what is. What a debacle that's going to be. Pump labeling and fuel distribution begins in June 2006 reflecting the new diesel fuel required to be produced by the refineries. In Oct 2006, unless retailers plan to carry both grades of diesel fuel, and it's doubtful any will due to cost's, all inventory of today's existing diesel fuel must be turned over to avoid contamination of the new diesel fuel. There are other time lines in between but by December 2014, All diesel fuel must comply with the 15-ppm low sulfer standard. By then, we'll be lucky if our trucks will have a diesel engine in them capable of pulling their "OWN" weight much less anything hitched to them.
