I live in California and am a licensed emissions inspector. You rant that CARB fines manufacturers for non-complient cans that are found in the state. Truth is ONLY if being sold new. And the reason you connot find any is that the Fed EPA decided that CA had a good idea and copied the regulation http://lawncare.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/a/PFC_regs.htm
By the way, I don't like the new design and will keep my old ones as long as they work.
Then you go on to repeat something your uncle told you without researching as you later suggest. California is NOT requiring Amonia injection. Many Desiel manufacturers use Selective Catylist Reduction (SCR) tecnology. A diluted Urea fluid is injected into the Exaust (NOT the engine) just begore the SCR catylist. Heat converts Urea to Amonia which reacts with the SCR to eliminate NOX (Oxides of nitrogen).
"As I mentioned above this will decrease the life of diesel engines by up to 70-80% and increase maintenance costs by approximately 10x"
I call BS, unless you can show me prof, not opinion.
