What a waste. Makes me think of the cash for clunkers videos where they drained the oil, added some nasty silicate stuff, and ran the engine until it seized. Some of those clunkers were quite nice.

It makes me sick looking at this stuff. We as a nation are all sorts of screwed up.

We have roughly 7 million Semi Trucks, probably 90% of which are pre Emissions era so those 15L engines are spewing all sorts of crap in the atmosphere but oh no, we decide to go after the guys with the 2L engines because they produced slightly higher amounts of NOx... SHAKES HEAD!!!

Now these vehicles like you said already produced polution to be produced, now they will produce even more polution to be destroyed and who wins in the end? I guess a TDI owner because they get to go buy another VW or XX brand... IDK none of this makes sence to me.

Certainly scares me to think that my JSW will end up in a pile like this.

Some of those look newer than 09s for sure. Perhaps they were high milers?

And some complained about people taking radios out before turn in...

It's probably the other way around, actually. The vast majority of semi trucks I see on the road have DEF tanks.

And California requires current emissions compliance for a semi to enter the state, AFAIK - even if it was originally certified to older standards. (Part of this is because of the glider loophole, I suspect, where an old engine can go into a new chassis.)

Good question. Are we sure we are not looking at a pile of VW's being crush after they were totaled in accidents. I smell some fake news here.

Fake?

With respects

Since when did the crushers segregate VW (wrecked) cars from the others.
