The decision appears delayed by resistance from multiple states with enormous power in the market declaring they will not cooperate. That sets up a legal battle with constitutional implications. This EPA has been quite inept in court and in rule framing, so I imagine their delay might be prudent. Try to get an argument together that can sustain scrutiny on both science and legal grounds.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
