I do hope that this might convince this darn state that our clean diesel emissions are more than up to par (to get rid of that bogus 'smog inspection' that they impose on us). Also, the $2000 compensation do tempt me to participate, but I don't know if its worth letting them have my d.
Hey Clippernation,

Did you end up giving your car for testing? How did it go? I received a letter asking for my car. They are paying me less than what they offered but keeping the car only for 7 days. Providing a loaner with fuel, pick up and delivery, tank full of diesel e.t.c. I know a journalist who has seen the facility; he said that they seem to take meticulous care of the cars there. I'm tempted to loan them the car (without letting them wash it). At the very least, it will pay for my license fees!
