Strange deals to meet emission standards aren't limited to GM. Dodge uses the heat in the exhaust to cremate the particulates. Last summer I was in the shop twice with the check engine light until they explained how it works. We were working for the COE and so the truck just moved around the park and seldom went over idle speed causing the equipment to gum up and turn the light on. They told me it was a big problem around here because the farmers using trucks to feed cattle never got the system hot enough and so they failed often. Having to take the truck out on the road several times a week would be a real PITA if I didn't spend most of my time in the boonies.
