It snowed sideways in Weed today. Then the snow quit and the wind stayed and blew all the snow away...

My Weed, Ca poem:

It is a dark dismal place,
Here it snow sideways.

If bakersfield is the butt of California,
Weed must be something simila?

Idk, poetry isnt my thing. Point being, Weed is awful.

Question More Regulations?

Okay, Guys ... I have a question about what might be a ... rumor ...

Is the State of California gonna require additional smog-fighting (what-ever) equipment on diesel vehicles, starting next year (2015)? Or, when, - if at all?

I'm "jonesin'" for a diesel P/U in the next year (or so) and, depending on what Big Sister-California-Gummint makes me deal with, may or may-not buy one here.
I couldn't find an actual "discussion" about this on here, so maybe I'm either looking in the wrong place, or there isn't one - OR (hopefully! ) it's nothing more than a big rumor.
Whaddya-all have to say?

Thanks --- D4Tom Hook 'em!

I'm not aware of any new legislation for light duty truck emissions. I highly doubt if they did required stricter standards they would force people to retrofit their rigs anyway. Maybe in the medium duty market, but not the light duty.

Many Thanks, FI ... I'm gonna have to go back to hunting for a good P/U then! Kinda slacked-off my search, because I couldn't find the "official" word ...
I appreciate the information!

That is/was one of my concerns - retrofitting - I think it would be a real hassle, and a bureaucratic nightmare ... But, that's just me.

I'm no expert but I spend a lot of time online, so dont take my word as fact. But retrofitting isnt something I would expect to see happen. It would be huge issue just implementing it, let alone enforcing it.

Up here we dont have emissions testing, but I dont think they put sniffers on any diesels, even in the Bay. It's just a visual inspection to make sure stuff that is there is supposed to be there, and to make sure the truck doesnt smoke excessively.

California has universal testing, but it's dependent on your county rating. Up here we only have to smog test once, when you initially register the vehicle. Some counties have to do it every other year, and the strict ones are yearly.

Diesel rigs 98+ and gassers 75+ (I think).

Our county is every other year. Thankfully the Bronco and F350 were done last year.
