diesel emissions

With are the strict emission requirements for new diesel engines that are acceptable in all states I have one question, do these rules apply to pick up trucks or they are strictly for passenger automobiles.

I'd assume it's any diesel vehicle that is meant to be driven on the road. Not including tractors and that type of vehicle.

I believe the same standard now applies to all light-duty pickups, SUV's and cars. Heavy-duty trucks above a certain weight probably still use a different standard, but those are getting cleaner too.

He was talking about new diesel vehicles. Of course completely different rules apply to old ones, and those depend on the state. In urban NV all light-duty vehicles, gas or diesel, that are between 2 and 40 years old must have annual emission checks. But they're pretty hard to fail unless there's something horribly wrong with your car.

That all depends on what state you are in. I had to have my 300TD tested when I lived in Boise, ID. And any newer (can't remeber the cut-off) cars have to be tested in Portland, OR.

You will, Kalifornia will soon polute the rest of the country .

when we had the 55mph speed limit, if the states didn`t comply, the feds would hold back funds until they did. sounds like black mail. OH it`s the govt. it`s ok .

It will eventually come to that with the Diesel emissions. these enviro whackos will come up with the idea, cars over a certain age won`t be able to register them. will have to be crushed.

LOL, there was a news report last week about taxing the farmers something like $100.00 a head for ea cow, because of the methane gas emitted..

Give the Govt. more money should fix the problem.

That's one reason why eating beef is bad for the environment. Too bad they can't harvest all the methane and put it to good use, like heating homes.

I have no problem with emission testing. In fact I think all cars, regardless of age or place of residence, should be tested to make sure they comply with the emission standards that were in effect when those cars were new. But requiring cars to meet emission standards that didn't exist at the time of their manufacture is unreasonable.

What he said. I hardly think someone is going to come around and get our cars for the crusher.
