hi peter
yes very interesting
just another attemp at covering up a major bungle by the so called powers to be and not admit the seriousness of the mistake
they'll never do that
surprise -surprise not at all its just par for the course of destiny
just as well someone reads through all these rules and can pick an error

Hi Oldtrack

This rule was about stopping exhaust gas getting into vehicles and particularly carbon monoxide. Quite a few deaths from faulty boot seals, tailgate seals etc in the old days.

I know I queried the exhaust coming out just past the drivers door on new motorhomes a few years back and was told they were allowed to do it because the body was sealed and they claimed the windows weren't open when the vehicle was driving.

Question now is how much of a problem is it with modern vehicles and particularly with diesels. maybe that is why they are changing the requirements.

Does anyone know of any instances of exhaust gas poisoning in recent times, because its very hard to change the bureaucrats minds without evidence of a problem.
