That would have the impact of "creating confusion, encouraging renewed litigation, and driving up the cost of compliance to automobile manufacturers and consumers alike," Vincent wrote.
OH NO! THE SKY IS FALLING!!!
More government BS designed to frighten Americans into obedience to the totalitarian edicts of Obama et al.
It would save motorists $3,000 in fuel over the lifetime of the vehicles, but add an average of $1,300 to the purchase price of a new vehicle.
Notice the careful exclusion of the definition of the word "lifetime" (is it 3 years, 5 years, 10 years, 100 years, what?)
Also, the "$1,300 purchase price increase" is the usual government tool Shepardson lie. That is just the cost of the materials and does not include the cost of system development, production, labor and all the elements of the fully accounted cost increase imposed by these EPA driven, nonsensical regulations they claim will control a non-existing problem, i.e. "global warming".
The real number would be a purchase price increase of more like $3,900 or more, per vehicle.
This price increase would be imposed on us common folk as a political tax to solve a "problem" that doesn’t exist.
All Obama et al want to do is to make private transportation (i.e. cars) so expensive that people will not be able to afford them and will be forced into accepting the continuing efforts to jam economically unviable "mass transit" systems down our throats.
They also want private transportation eliminated to stop so-called "urban sprawl" and force us to live in crowded urban communities where we can be more easily controlled.
