The rollback/elimination of regulations and enforcers will be a dream come true. Just think- no more pesky speed limits or stop lights; just go for it. /s

If it means that I can tinker with my vehicle without fear of it being impounded because "emission controls were tampered with," then I'm all for it.

Especially when the current definition of "tampering with emissions controls" includes engine changes without swapping out every last bit of OEM electronics needed for the replacement engine to run. Or adding EGR to an existing engine.

If I had a choice between the 2 keep the economy requirements

One affects overall pollution more than the other

Kubota v2 here I come

I rather see gray market laws repealed

If you crash just leave your car there on fire, no need for police or insurance

What is the use of good fuel economy if nobody can breathe or see where they are going? That's right, we will save more fuel but fill the atmosphere with carcinogenic soot particles and eye-searing oxides of nitrogen. Self interest and no idea about the real big picture.
