Angry Stuff like this makes my blood boil

I read an article on Yahoo on diesel emmisions, and I came across this post by some guy who hates Mercedes Diesels, and his reasoning is bad. It takes alot to make my blood boil, and this does it. This makes my blood boil almost as much as racist insults do.

Took a glance at the discussion forum regarding that article. Seems to be a bunch of blathering idiots spewing worthless babble.

I see what you mean. That message board has now turned into an anti-Clinton, anti-Bush, anti-EPA, anti-Mexican, anti-big rig, anti- obese people thread within ten minutes. This is what happens when a bunch of incoherent babbling morons get a yahoo account and locate the keyboard and send button. (sigh)

Keep Your Car Well-Maintained

I use Howes additive in my diesel fuel, regularly perform Diesel Purge to keep the injectors clean and adjust valves every 30k km. The result: hardly any smoke. IMHO, it's a neighbourly thing to do.

I try to avoid following smokey diesel vehicles and I believe everyone here does the same thing. Less smoke = cleaner air, period.
