I wish they would do the same here but it is a free for all, do what you like, no repercussions.

Ag guys have been watching this a bunch. Many have mod'ed their equipment to eliminate DPF. Now they worry that EPA will go after them - especially the big Ag guys.

There is a company in the UK that would be right at the top of my list. My thoughts on removing, mainly Diesel, emissions devices is why we have ended up facing an ICE ban as the power that be look at the results on paper and see the plan isn't working only not realising it is because of illegal tampering. I think we should all use EV public transport


or electric scooters

You know, this is a classic case of "you brought this onto yourself" with assholes rolling coal on people and thinking it is a laugh. It was never an isolated incident and here we are.

Eric... you have any thoughts on this? :D

You mean one of these! Yes, that's right, her head is stuck in what must be at least a six inch diameter tail pipe!

We have been here before when Diesel was going to “save the planet” and we will be there again when the woke wakes up to the realisation that EV’s won’t “save the planet” but instead will make things worse and kill a great many people in an utterly appalling way until the powers that be go “ohh shit, that didn’t work” but by that time western cars makers will have forgotten how to build ICE vehicles but the Chinese will have kept both irons in the fire and be ready to respond either way. This is the white middle class elitist left at work, “we want change”

I sorta, kinda do. Or at least, I find this pretty funny:

However, I've also been stuck behind trucks like that on occasion and found it quite obnoxious.

I watch Wham Bam Tesla cam and there are numerous video of Tesla's being coaled, one part of me finds it amusing as I despise EV's and hybrids with a passion and the other half of me is infuriated as this action gives the lefty wokist anti ICE (establishment) lobby ammunition, the young white middle class woky leftist econutters scream "say no to oil" OK, so that's no to most pharmaceuticals, fertilisers, man made fabric, Thermal insulation, Fungicides, mobile phones (YEH!), herbicides, asphalt, tyres, brake fluid, computers etc etc... "we want change" ok, what to? "we want change" yes but to what? "WE WANT CHANGE!"... FFS :banghead:
