Calif small gas engine ban?
« on: May 01, 2021, 10:01:24 AM »
There is no limit to the stupidity in California.
It seems that the other small off-road engines part is the real concern. Will chainsaws, motorcycles, ATV's, generators, gas engine driven compressors, outboard motors, fire dept. rescue saws and many others be banned?

California would ban the sale of new gas-powered leaf-blowers, lawnmowers and other “small off-road engines” as soon as 2024, under a bill being considered by state lawmakers.
If approved, the ban would go into effect on Jan. 1, 2024, or as soon as the California Air Resources Board determines it is feasible.

Yep

If you can’t fix it with a hammer, it must be electrical.

The problem is that Commiefornia starts this BS and it affects many of the states. Can you buy a vented gas can with a regular pour spout in your state anymore? Engine makers have to make special engines just to be able to sell them in Calif due to emissions BS. So glad we got out of that place.

Retailers are starting to get wise to this. Yes I can buy a vented gas can with a regular spout, its called a "utility" jug and is sold in red/yellow/clear. But we all know its a gas can. They sell like hot cakes.

Maybe a small engine ban in commie land would be a blessing for the rest of us. Now we can have engines that dont have the carb bull shit and a lower cost.

I just bought one of those jugs at TSC myself. I treat my old vented 5 gal plastic cans like gold and they are still fine after 30 years.

Lots of states will follow suit.
