The Gubmint and your diesel

Just curious what the latest word is on EPA requirements for pleasure boats. I know new production boats must meet stringent requirements, but wondering about existing engines...

I have no idea what the regs are, but usually, the old stuff is not included in the new regs.

Well, cleaner requirements for diesels, trying to get e-15 in gas AND put ethanol in diesel fuel, upcoming requirements for sealed gasoline tank systems like cars have.
