Whats a CAT,DPF,and EGR? LOL sound like a abreviation for junk.
There abbreviations for items that will help your kids and there kids to breath cleaner fresher air. My "junk" is doing its job to help keep this world a better cleaner place.
If the rest of the"WORLD" was doing the same I would agree but guess what they aint, so do you really think its gonna make a difference I dont. We are in my opinion wasting our money for a dream thats not gonna happen. Good luck to you on your crusade. Now, when they have these things working properly and not causing premature engine falure which leads to more pollution to produce and ship more parts and causes premature oil breakdown which means more pollution to produce more oil and ship more oil then Ill agree with you. They dont have the bugs worked out of these systems yet. Thats my thoughts on the matter. Have a good day.
All can do is what I can do. I have no power over the rest of the world or even my neighbor but I know my truck runs clean and I know that as long as I keep my oil changed it SHOULD go for many hundreds of thousands of miles. If everyone did as you and waited for everyone else to make a change then nothing would ever change and that's my thought on the matter.
