It's not just CA but half of the East Coast as well. As to ****** themselves, it won't work. The EPA and CARB only mandate what is possible to achieve and I believe it's negotiated with the auto industry. I have no problem with them requiring cleaner emissions. What they should have done is require ULSD sooner so that diesels didn't have to lag behind as much. I'd like them to do one more thing: raise the minimum cetane & lubricity requirements. It'd be nice if I didn't have to additize the cat pee that they sell at the pumps.
