    Ruling coming in December. Lots of support to do away with the 300 unit rule. They are saying if these ltl beverage & food service can run 20 year old trucks then gliders should be ok to do like before.

    Do you have a link I can read? All I can find is this article from August that kind of says the opposite of what you’re saying.

    Regs limiting glider kits score a win in EPA ruling

    Ok, because all I’m finding is the article I linked, as well as some that Tenn Tech has said that the study that Fitz paid them to do about how gliders are as clean burning as new trucks is flawed. So, if you could, please link here so I can read something that states otherwise because I’m not finding anything saying there will be a new ruling in December. Thank you.
     
    ??? and Intothesunset Thank this.
