The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) regulates CAFE standards and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) measures vehicle fuel efficiency. Congress specifies that CAFE standards must be set at the "maximum feasible level".

Is kind of a war between the NHTSA they want better fuel economy, can't even raise the AF ratio a tad, EPA primary concern is emissions. DOT primary responsibility is safety, not much difference between our may law enforcement agencies fighting over who has jurisdiction. One key reason why we had a 9/11.

Electronic stability control (ESC) is under the responsibility of the NHTSA and is a federal law, but broken by the compact spare to get a bit better, maybe, 0.0000001% better that kills ESC so have a NHTSA that is contradicting itself, and why is the DOT being so quiet on the issue?

Compact spare runs about 9% faster meaning a 9% greater pulse rate. To compensate, ABS, also law, has increased slippage up t 20%.

Ever get the idea we have a bunch of aholes running this country? Extremely hazardous to use on ice and snow. An a TMPS law that does not require all gas stations to provide free air, but sure can buy liquor and a case of beer there. Somebody is really smoking crack.

Been witness to various government agencies going to war in front of me, just told them we have a shed in back, go there and fight it out and agree on something, then let me know what you want.

No government agency is liable for anything, the manufacturers are, but they don't have a say.
