That's my point for this thread branch, yes. Not only isn't it worth
it, the code is none of teh EPA's damn business.
What I don't understand is that the code, apparently, allowed *more*
fuel to the engine (to cool the combustion chamber) which lowered NOx
So, fixing the problem should result in *less* fuel to the engine, if
that's the case.
When they reflash the ecu, wouldn't that lowering of fuel *increase* gas
mileage *and* bring NOx emissions back down to where they said they were?
Have you actually seen any factual data that they were providing more
fuel? From the little bit of decent info I've seen it looked more
like they were trying to extend the life of some "filter" by turning
the filter "off" and just letting the stuff fly out the tailpipe.
some info here..
