Before everyone gets too carried away, you also ought to look
at actual 'in use' emissions of vehicles.    Remember that
Michigan does not have a vehicle inspection and maintenance
program to ensure that cars that are gross emitters get repaired.

Comparisons of non-mobile source engine emissions should
be compared with "in use" emission patterns and the predominance
of gross emitters and not with the statutory vehicle emission requirements
in order to get the true perspective on relative emission comparisons.

Michigan also does not have gasoline station pump vapor recovery,
probably because of the influence of John Engler's oil industry buddies.
This means tens of tons per day in additional emissions in a large
metro area like SE Michigan.
