The Ford sign said "Diesel smogs here"

Did I miss something or is California gonna require diesels to have a yearly smog check???

I have been expecting our dumb ass politicians to start something like this but never heard anything about it. I wish I could load em all up on a plane, fly over an island, and push em out. Whether I would supply a parachute Sorry for the rant...I live in California.

No, I imagine it isn't.

So that's how they're going to balance the state's budget. Introduce more and more "bills".

That sucks. That was a big justification for a diesel - at least for me.

There are a bunch of modified diesels that aren't going to pass. Not unlike my hotrodded RoadRunner when smog tests began in San Diego.

Re: The Ford sign said "Diesel smogs here"

We have annual diesel smogs here and biannual gas, so I only have to get my Jeep done ever other year. The diesel places charge more too.

I see guys in pickups with 16" dual stacks coming up the bed and I wonder how in the world they even get checked, although I asked a guy at a gas station once and he said his buddy owns a diesel shop and takes care of it... so likely the guys with the tricked out polluters skate the system somehow and the rest of us get shafted.

I am surprised that California is behind Colorado on this however...

How do I get my GVWR changed to 14,001 pounds?

This does indeed suck.

Another good link is:

Which is a glossy overview of what the tests involve.
