Is our government really telling Ford they can't sell higher MPG cars here?
I find that very hard to believe but if true, it really sucks. I thought Obama was a greenie.
It's not a matter of MPGs, it's about emissions. Diesels require urea injection systems in the aftertreatment to meet emissions requirements driven by folks on the west coast . Basically a chemical plant underneath the vehicle. Next time you are in a dealership take a peak undneath a Superduty w/ a diesel engine
