    I’ll include a picture - to clarify.

    Empty, the unit tractor and trailer is 80,000.

    Potentially, when fully loaded with product - hydrogen - another 2,000lbs (?)

    Though the trailer appears as 4 separate units, the entire unit is plumbed together as one, multiple cylinders in each pod - lines fixed , interconnected with shut offs and permanently affixed to trailer.

    Can I permit to 80-85k if needed as a single piece non divisible?

    Follow up question - I have an APU.

    Does this allow 80,400? Or just 34,400 on drives?

    New England,except CT and New York you can.....

    I thought hydrogen is lighter than air.... shouldn’t your loaded weight be less than empty weight.....?

    That’s kinda what I thought. It apparently does have a weight when compressed.

    My tiny mind brought up images of the Hindenburg . . .

    Are you answering the single piece or the APU question?
