    This seems to be a growing concept Im hearing more all the time. I was wondering what the smallest trucks are that are subject to less or no emissions junk or if there is a certain gvw class that exempts it.


    Has anyone gone through with this idea, what did you buy over what alternative?

    Anything out of a pickup truck class something like a Freightliner doesn't have as much emmission crap so your not going to get away from it totally.

    well new 1 1/2- 2 ton trucks have the new exhaust systems. The new NPR's are "clean diesel" and Ford 550's also.

    Even the largest trucks are subject to the 2010 emission requirements. The next fire engines we buy will either have DPF or urea injection.

    Isn't there something coming down about 5 minutes of idle and the diesel shuts off?

    The next round of all American diesels will most likely have both. Thus fuel economy will drop like a rock.

    I have a 2009 duramax that got ~13mpg stock. When it went into regen mode it dipped down to 8 at an extreme. I straight piped it and used EFI to delete the DPF coding and it gets 17.5 in town/20 hwy

    It's called clean idle. California jobsite regulations is what I've been told.
