Re: [DML] Emissions



Hey Marc...

Good question....I don't know.  It doesn't appear to be on my report.

I just called the emissions dept and asked why NOx wasn't on my
report.  To give you a background, our state recently had a major
overhaul of our emission testing facilities.  It was costing too much
money for the state run emissions facilities and keep them up to date.
 So they recently privatized it.  The nice thing about the
privatization is that the facilities are cleaner, it's cheaper to get
an emissions test done, they have newer better equipment that checks
for more chemicals, and they are able to use OBDII.  But as the state
was making the transition, the budget was cut and they were not able
to include NOx and other chemicals they wanted to check for.  He said,
and please understand that I am just relaying what he said, that the
state only had enough resources to check a specific # of chemicals and
not all of them.  NOx was one of the chemicals not included because
there was no measurable figure on which to base what NOx emissions
should be.  So it was tabled....for now.  He said that it will be
included in the future, but he couldn't give me any type of time table.

Thanks!
Dave Jacobs
