I really do think the truth is right in Oilhammer post!

Most people now days can't fix their own car, house, or anything else....

I used to just think they were lazy or busy. But most people can't figure out basic troubleshooting and are afraid to figure things out on their own.

And that plays right into the hands of manufacturers as they make cars more complex and build crummy home appliances that last five years if you are lucky....push more product out the door and fleece consumers.

This morning I received an email from one of our shipping companies which in part reads:

The maritime industry is facing great changes: Starting January 1, 2020, vessels will only be allowed to use fuel with a maximum sulphur content of 0.5 percent. The current standard is fuels with a sulphur cap of 3.5 percent. The new IMO2020 regulation is the first in a series of International Maritime Organization (IMO) measures to reduce marine pollution. Using low-sulphur fuel oil will be the key solution for the shipping industry.

My understanding is that ships are a huge, if not the largest, source of pollution of all types. Spend any time around the Los Angeles Port and you'll find a fine coating of soot on everything.

The rest of the letter describes how the company will be increasing prices to pay for the fuel. Rumor is this will increase over the road ULSD prices, too, because of increased demand of similar fuel for ships.

What does the TCE contribute to air pollution?

Their diesel engines have intact emissions control systems on them.

What is a "Nuclear engine" LMFAO! And how much soot and NOx do they produce when operated? doubleLMFAO!

So far as I know, "nuclear engine" is just a nuclear reactor making steam for various uses. A bit impractical for use in passenger cars / light trucks, but could be useful for OTR semi's (if you can shrink the reactor enough and still get a useful amount of power to move the load.). In this application, until it's time to refuel the reactor, you would have practically zero emissions.

I think nuclear reactor semi trucks are still a few years out . Much more sensible to have electric semi's charged from a stationary nuclear reactor plant. But nuclear power is on it's way out. Too expensive.

I know, I was making fun of the absurd statement I quoted.

Many ships have something like this... they bubble the exhaust through water.

I think "raid" is a strong term for EPA agents showing up and checking vehicles for hardware deletes and tunes. But since GDE was doing both I think the tunes got painted with the same brush. Also, they are contacting customers in CA that were tuned and offering to return them to stock. I think that's part of the settlement with the EPA, in addition to a fine.

Reading the threads on Ram1500diesel.com, it looks like part of the agreement with CARB was to not offer any tunes to Ca registered vehicles. Probably why GDE got off with a $50k fine versus others that forced bankruptcy.

I thought the regulation change was for fuel used only while in port. Or maybe that's what is in effect today. If all those supply ships change from bunker oil to ULSD, that will have a large effect on pump pricing. At least until the refineries get things balanced. Then all fuel prices should be up.

The letters have gone out to all GDE tuned owners in the US. The first posted copy was from someone in Florida.
