Default Re: End of an Era?

Oh yes they have, it's just like when they started messing with the truckers diesel rigs in the 90's over dreaded NOx. Their implementation of devices to limit the said pollutant did reduce emissions but also the overall miles per gallon they could travel with the new system, to the tune of almost 2mpg! Now think about how many diesel trucks we rely on to keep this economy moving... and then you see 1-2mpg worse gas consumption across the nations largest mobile shipping infrastructure trumps the emissions debate hands down. This agency is senseless and completely blind to the havoc and collateral damage they cause. All in the name conservation though!
