In Topic: Can someone explain CAFE standards

22 May 2015 - 08:30 AM

Your EPA guy is full of it on a lot of levels.  CAFE has nothing to do with the gas cans.  The can requirements started out as CARB compliant in CA.  In theory they reduce evaporative emissions and spillage.  EPA picked the regs up under the Clean Air Act.  In practice as everyone knows they suck.
Secondly, he doesn't have any authority to confiscate a gas can.  Tell him to go piss up a rope.
Thirdly, do what I did for putting diesel in the tractor, go get some of these "utility jugs" that "aren't intended for fuel" ;)

I got the 1.5" OD filler hose and can slam 5 gallons in the tractor in <30 seconds.
As far as CAFE goes, it's a wierd formula that dictates the minimum fuel economy of an OEMs fleet. I won't dare to try and explain something I don't understand completely so Wiki is your friend if you care.
As far as the regular shortbed pickup goes, it's probably OEMs gaming the system.  The standards are based on the "footprint" of a vehicle which is the wheelbase times the average track width in ft^2.   A single cab shortbed probably fits the 41ft^2 footprint which has a 36mpg standard in 2017, compared to the larger truck footprint of 75ft^2 which is 24.5.  Things you don't build don't count against you....

Howland just traded SG Dunlap for PF Holman.  I'll take that upgrade.

@UK4Life   I know it's not last years games.  Till the schedule is out that's my only basis to speculate though

@AUskip07 Truck smaller than what you're probably thinking, even though it's a long bed.  Trucks have grown in size over the last 15 years till mine isn't even as big as new 1/2 tons.  Park mine next to a new Dodge or Chevy 1500 and it's apparent, much less a new 2500.

We were 13-19 and lost 6 non-con games.  With decent coaching at least 4 of those should have been gimmes putting us at 17-15.

Going to Conference games, I count another 5 I think we could have easily won with decent coaching.  TAMU, UGA, both OM games Bama and USCe.  That puts us at 22-10.  Thats at least on the bubble, bare minimum.

Add in MK and I think you get the other 2 non-con games and one of LSU and Vandy, so 25-7.  That's a tourney trip I think.
If the schedule is similar in 15-16, I think a tourney trip is a definite possibility.
