All Mercedes heavy trucks in Europe started using urea tanks earlier this year. Cummins is right behind them. Guess they must be using different petrol stations than the ones you used.

We have been a hostage to EPA and CARB for ever and every time they get near to bringing in the diesels they raise the restrictions higher. I spent months back in 2000 trying to figure out how to import a new 730d and even the EPA man in Ann Arbor couldn't tell me what the regs were at that time. A women at EPA said they just hadn't agreed to accept Euro Regs even though they were identical at that time except for some slight difference in time duation in the drive cycle. The US enviro lobby doesn't want diesels no matter how good they are!!

Starting 2007 EPA and Euro regulations will be similar with Euro regulations being about one year behind. In 2010 there will be another emissions regualtions after which diesels will have to become almost as clean as gasoline engines.

Comparing EPA and Euro emissions is a little inaccurate because they both place different emphasis on CO and NOx.
