DEF doesn’t have anything to do with reducing that puff of smoke. DEF is used to reduce NOx emissions which are completely invisible but still harmful to the atmosphere. The factories that make the stuff are also highly regulated and monitored for their emissions to the land, water, and atmosphere as are the trucks that haul it. So no, using DEF does not increase overall pollution. It may, and probably does increase overall energy usage.

There's no such thing as a free lunch and there's no such thing as a carbon/pollution free factory and supply chain.

God I’m glad I don’t live in some of these liberal cesspool areas and am lucky enough to be where people mind their business (for the most part).

There’s a reason some government diesel vehicles (military for example) are exempt from this emissions garbage. Anybody wanna guess why?

I have extensive history and experience with diesels in various forms and usages, and can tell you for certain that it’s not a matter of when you will have emission issues, it’s just a matter of when.

Even though I don’t agree with it, it was stupid of this guy to delete the vehicle and then advertise it as such where he was located.

You never know how it will turn out when you decide you are so special the rules don't apply. This bubba got caught but I'm sure plenty skate. Roll of the dice.

And sometimes ya can't be so ignorant to stand your ground when the ground is a melting block of ice on a summer day (figuratively but in the spirit of the enviro discussion).
Guy had 2 other choices since he somehow pissed off the roll coal police.
1. put it back to stock (not that hard)
2. Go sell it somewhere else. (great option considering how much deleted diesels go for...)

Bet (would hope) that VIN is in a data base, would be flagged if somebody registered it in US.

Do you think he could get thousands of people to send him millions of $ to keep him out of jail?
