Ain't that the truth

EPA Hits Two More Diesel Tuners With $10 Million Fine For Defeat Devices

The EPA's crackdown on diesel emissions defeat devices has come to Michigan.

Two Michigan-based diesel tuning companies have just been hit with $10 million worth of civil penalties for their role in the manufacture, sale, and distribution of diesel emissions defeat devices...

Lucas Bell has written another article on the subject.

This Story has an Odd Twist

.
.
TX - Waller County EMS Ambulances Found with Emissions Defeat Devices

Public Funds paid for emissions equipment removal and costly fix is underway. ($105,000 + addt'l labor)
Click2Houston.com/Investigates/12-01-22/Waller-County-EMS-Ambulances-Found-with-Emissions-Defeat-Devices

"The ambulances are owned by Waller-Harris Emergency Services District 200, a taxing authority, that collected about $12 million in 2022 from both property and sales taxes within its 608 sq. mile territory.

Unconventionally, the person who alerted the US EPA about the issue is the same person who is ultimately responsible for the ambulances, Tim Gibson, Director of ESD 200. Gibson did not authorize the changes, which were made before his tenure as Director."

Odd indeed.

The director self reported the issue. Which was authorized by the constable.

I can't really fault the constable, he did what was best for the service, as the emissions devices made the ambulances unrealiable, and that's not a good thing when a life is on the line. Could you imagine an ambulance on a hot run getting limited to 5mph due to an emissions issue?

Thought police/fire/government vehicles are exempt for emission laws.

Common Misconception

In June 2012, the EPA announced the granting of relief for fire trucks and ambulances. This relief came through two methods of rule making:
a direct final rule (DFR) and a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

The announcement of this relief has generated misconceptions and questions for many individuals involved in the emergency vehicle community.

The biggest misconception with both the DFR and NPRM is that emergency vehicles are now exempt from having to meet current emissions standards. This may be a result of a regulatory announcement that carried a misleading title.

Contrary to the general perception, 2007 and 2010 emissions components such as diesel particulate filters (DPFs) and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) components cannot (legally) be removed. Although the EPA is committed to allowing engine manufacturers some flexibility, emergency vehicles are still required to meet the emissions standards in place at the time the engine was produced.

Military and motorsports is/was the only exemption last I heard. There's a push to restrict motorsports, even if it is off-road. Not sure who's gonna win the epa vs sema battle, though.

I don't think restricting the military is even a thought.

I could see fire/ems as an acceptable exemption, but it's not for whatever reason.
