They cost about the same as a single repair.

If everything you need is available and you're committed then I suggest you get it while it's still for sale.

The comment on that web site that the kit is for “For Off-Road Use Only” is to cover their butts from violation fines. But the EPA has been seeing through those shame statements.

Buyer beware.

LOL! Yeah, that warning didn't do squat for Performance Diesel. $1,100,000 fine.

Frankly, I'm neither hysterical nor agitated, just speaking factually, you should try it sometime. Pollution is a well defined and objective term that means undesirable contaminate of a public property. Pollution chemically degrades or is scrubbed and removed through natural processes. Dilution would be ineffective if not for the this fact.

Even if this were true (it's not, especially after including road dust), it is a logical fallacy. You're committing a category error by comparing particulates to the noxious aerosols I was speaking of, emitted by internal combustion engines.

Finally, many might find your post displays a certain lack of concern for those affected by localized smog in non-attainment areas.
