So now we know why Cummins-engine-using Volvo Trucks and the EPA Deep Staters (DEEPA?) in its Michigan emissions lab didn’t want to test Cummins engines against glider engines…
BOTTOM LINE: Volvo Trucks, Cummins Inc. and the rest of the new truck industry conspired with EPA Deep Staters to destroy the glider truck industry. In addition to killing off a competitor (albeit a small one as gliders are only about 1 percent of the market for trucks), the new truck industry is desperate to contain the fraud it and EPA have perpetrated on the public — ever tighter (but ever more pointless) emissions standards driving ever more expensive truck engines and higher profits.
