Do the regs still exempt pickup trucks?

Speaking of gas, I have to buy a new furnace for the house. It's not nearly as much fun as buying a truck or a trailer.

Hi gbaglo... Agreed!!! We bought a Trane Hi Efficiency furnace before they were taken over by American Standard. It has already paid for itself in gas savings. Our budget billing went from $160X10 mos. to $75. Wish I could do that with a "Tug"!!! Alf

I am not certain on the exact details but I do know that the standards for light duty diesel trucks has changed alot thus why we have DEF fluid in the newer diesels and particulate filters in the exhaust. All to reduce emissions from the tail pipe. I can't remember if they count towards the cafe rating though.

Heck that's not even broke in yet.you might consider trading it in at about 200k. It's a keeper. The last Toyota I traded up had 240,000k and was 13 years old. I still got $6,200 for it. But it had a timing belt that need changed every 100k. that was a drag. The Tacoma I got has a chain it's a 06 and just turned 100k. Will trade it up after our Yukon trip next June. A year before retirement.
