Back from Italy

I just came back from Italy and I'm really glad we mostly have gassers here.

Even though the new diesels are clean, the vast majority of the cars I've seen in Italy are not. The smell was pretty bad on busy roads.

It was so bad in fact that I elected to install a brand new cat on my TDI (the 200k miles one is shot), and never run it in a way that emits black soot anymore.
