"Bad Diesel"• https://www.ericpetersautos.com, By eric
We have the obvious example of the "pandemic" that it created (in the lab) and then used – to "solve" the problem of people laboring under the idea that their freedom to leave their homes and go about their business was conditional upon government allowing them to.
The government has made diesel engines – which used to be simple, rugged engines that could burn almost any combustible oil – into delicate and finicky engines that do not work well unless fed a strict diet of highly refined diesel, a fuel that also used to be simple (and inexpensive for that reason) before government got around to "regulating" it.
Mix the two together and – voila! – you have a problem that government is getting ready to solve.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Office of Defects Administration is "probing" reports of Bosch-made high-pressure fuel pumps used in a number of diesel-powered vehicles, including Ram 2500/3500 trucks with the Cummins 6.7 liter turbodiesel six as well as diesel-powered Ram 1500s, Jeep Gladiators and Cherokees and older (2014-2018) diesel-powered BMWs such as the 3 and 5 Series sedans and the X3 crossover (none of the latter BMWs are still available with diesel engines in the United States, because the government has made it all-but-impossible to offer diesel engines in anything except vehicles classified as trucks).
