Make America Guzzle Again!?
 
Don't have the energy to discuss politics but the national hangover, no...sentence begins...
Trump Threatens To Repeal Fuel Economy And Emissions Regulations

Frank Lee 11-09-2016 01:45 PM

Well, we can't, really... here.

But I'm planning on makin' me a dual-engine 2x 400 V8 pickup.

VW diesels, you're welcome again...

My next car's apparently going to be coal fired.

With baby harp seal upholstery.

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

I have a feeling that people will die- But from the stupid end
:/

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I rather see gray market laws repealed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? :confused: That's right, we will save more fuel :eek: but fill the atmosphere with carcinogenic soot particles and eye-searing oxides of nitrogen. Self interest and no idea about the real big picture.
