I wonder if they will be imported into the US, and if so, would the EPA test emissions on the main fuel or the auxiliary (starting) fuel?

The EPA doesn't care what else you may run in your engine, they will only test on diesel fuel.

Oh yes The Mining Act. On private property this applies pretty well.¬† The wording goes something like, "Go mind your own business, this is mine!"  Or how about, "Try mining your own f'ing business!"

Because Cat is earning profits on a reputation they built 30+ years ago.  They are now building their machines out of parts from the same places we buy Listeroids and Changfas from.  Bye Bye American Pie.............
