Default EPA strikes again

I thought Trump was supposed to fix this EPA bullshit?
Especially when the air pollution map looks like this? I donít get why they are so hell bent on enforcing diesel trucks in North America.

When will the EPA mandate DEF and SCR on commercial airline jets?

I could just imagine the engines going into limp mode at 36k feet and reduced speed to 200mph.....lol

Old news. If I remember correctly, it never gained enough traction to amount to anything

Banks does tuning for the military, like the JLTV, with their secretive torque numbers.. And I worked at a local salt mine here (2,500ft deep), though I was not allowed down without weeks of training I was MSHAW certified to be above ground.. I seen so many pictures, they have thousands of gallons of waste oil, hydraulic oil, antifreeze siting down there in a huge pond.. Nothing ever comes back up.. I know the DEA,DEC,Osha or any other environmental/saftey are too scared to go down there. Nor would they be allowed without proper training, so they skip right over these state run companies. I don't get it either guys.

Banks does tuning on some military vehicles. The reason that isn't a reasonable statement for this is the government itself allows their vehicles to be non-compliant.

I work for USPS....... Vehicles are from 87 to 94 using gm 2.5 liter engines and 2.2 engines. They black smoke on every start up, only use one o2 sensor and they use aftermarket cats for replacement which is now illegal to do in new York.... Trust me fellas! It gets me fired up too!

It's ok for the government to break its own rules, just make sure YOU don't do it!

every state and federal vehicle i worked on while at DPS met federal emission requirement for the year the vehicle was built in. Military is different, i know that but civilian still meets the same requirements, they just dont get tested every year. In reality, they dont really need to on OBD2 vehicles as all AZ tests is for a MIL or emissions equipment coming back as "not ready". i was required to check these every time the vehicle came in anyhow.

AZ much more lack's than alot of these other states so i may be missing the point lol
