l wonder why all manufacturers don't do this? wonder how it would do were i pulled through an emissions test now?
stombaugh85 said:You answered your own question. Volkswagon make a diesel engine, ( blue motion) that gets 70 mpg in europe. That engine is made here in the USA but not allowed to be sold here because of emmisions burned per/gallon is higher. They dont take into effect that the mileage is far superior thou... Insane!!!! Had a buddy buy a new truck from the dealership but there was a mixup at the plant. The truck he bought was supposed to go to Australian . That truck got 8 miles to the gallon but here it was supposed to get 15 mpg. Australia had no regulation at the time. Oil companies are in bed with auto makers. Regulations are different everywhere. Same engines but drastically different fuel mileage. Technology is there but not applied .
That 70 mpg is prob measured in the imperial gallon though. Still good mpg but will get about 1/4th less here.

It can also be a problem with the EPA regarding emissions. When it comes to large amounts of money they are careful about warranty work. When there is a dispute over warranty work they don't just fix it and give it back to you without paying. You either pay for it and work it out later ( most likely suing them ) or they keep your vehicle until it is settled. And if you sue them they don't pay your fees either. You know just enough to make yourself dangerous
