There are such things as cat wraps you can buy that keep some heat for as much as 24 hours...I don't EOC anymore...I also haven't leaned the car out at all. This is just for general emissions, but yeah.
I'm looking to move up to a prius or hchI or even civic when I graduate. I won't log too many miles until then anyway (and I hope an EV will go in the works).
For the average person though, I think vehicle switching is the only really efficient thing...
Any links to this kinda of stuff? I would be more than interested.
I say NOx first. However, there is very little that makes the elimination of NOx and GHGs mutually exclusive.
I think that the efforts to reduce them should be kept seperate...that way each group can keep pushing their own agenda. *shrug*
NOx is my big worry. I know that with my EFIE gizmo, I can create a lean-burn mode (which should lower CO2), but I don't want to compromise my emissions.
My goal is to maintain a lean-burn that still allows me to comply with California emission standards. I intend to "just barely comply" and then try to figure out ways I can lower the NOx while maintaining lean burn.
When was the last time you saw a gasoline pump nozzle that actually sealed with the tank orifice, so all the VOC-laden air that has to be displaced from the fuel tank does NOT vent to the atmosphere, and went into the vapour recovery canister instead? I've NEVER seen one.
Here they don't make a tight seal, BUT they suck in way more vapors than the liquid they are pumping displaces. Can't even smell gasoline while you are pumping. Very nice, really. BUT those controls are only mandated in our "non-attainment" areas, which probably represent about 30% of the gasoline sold in the US.
