On again ...off again..on again
We have a VET (Vehicle Emissions Test) requirement on all vehicles in KY until last year when the state government ruled that since they were not finding any significant emissions problems from KY cars it was not improving our compliance with EPA guidlines so they shuttered all of the testing centers.
That was a good day.
Then, a local environmental group lobbied the federal government who rules that since this was an EPA program the state government could not abolish it. So it's in court now to determine if it should start up again.
In any case commercial vehicles and motorhomes over 18,000 lbs are exempt (mine is about 15,000). You can also petition for an exemption if your vehicle is out of state more than 50% of the time, or its too old, or it would cost too much to repair, or...
So I'm not sure what they are doing. I can tell you that I had my VW tested with a bad O2 sensor and a hole in the muffler smelling like sulfur....and it passed.
KY is not nearly as strict as CA so I'm going with the theory that if the MH fails I'll go for an exemption since it's out of state 80% of the time, its old, it would cost too much to repair and if the modifications improve fuel economy thats a good thing - right?
