I look forward to seeing your Sprinter in the classifieds tomorrow; perhaps trolling for a bicycle instead.

It will be really gratifying, for both of us.

Point conceded. Looks like I should have done my homework.

My point was that CARB did not tell manufacturers: your fleet needs to meet emissions target X, go use the free market to get there. Instead CARB set up a two tiered mandate: your regular fleet needs to meet emissions target X, while 2% increasing to 10% of your fleet need to meet the target of 0. The same emissions results would have been achieved had the full fleet emissions target been 0.9X. This was a defacto electric car mandate as that was the only technology at the time and GM spent loads of money on it. The same emissions reduction could have been far more easily achieved by having a lower single tiered emissions target and letting manufacturers decide how to get there.

The goal WAS electric cars, or perhaps we can compromise and say the goal was creating zero emissions vehicles. The goal was NOT reducing emissions of the fleet by free market means, as that would have resulted in NO electric cars (ZEVs).

This thread is closed.

There isn't any particular post which has prompted the action. The discussion has been quite acceptable. The thread should remain in Sprinter Talk.

The Green Diesel Engineering - Compliance Form- California pertinent information was revealed in the first few pages. That should remain available for Sprinter owners to access.

A new thread can be created for further discussion about emissions laws, air quality, regulatory agencies, politics, etc. if anyone is so inclined to do so.
