CARB's Kirk Rosenkranz admits that their measures use more gasoline

...and adds to pollution.

Air Pollution Specialist Kirk Rosenkranz is paid $85,672.55/year to send letters telling us that you must increase pollution in order to reduce pollution.   CARB really does attract the cream of the crop, don't they?

Mr. XXXXXXXXXX,

Thank you very much for the information you’ve provided.  That fills in most of the blanks and we really appreciate that.

We would like a little more information about the John Deere 6068T on the XXXXX.  What’s the model year, serial number, and displacement of that engine?

As far as the increase in fuel use goes, I’m not certain but I think what you’re seeing is one of the issues we see quite a bit when it comes to trying to reduce emissions of one pollutant or another.  Usually, if you try and reduce one, you’re probably going to see an increase in another.  I think the increase in fuel use by the John Deere is related to the emissions control technologies used to reduce emissions.  Also, you’ve increased the power potential of the engine by 25 percent (from 80 kW to 100kW) and there may be additional fuel consumption related to that increase.

Thanks again for your help updating our CHC data base.

Mr. XXXXXXXXXX,

This is to follow-up my voice mail message from earlier today.  The Air Resources Board is in the process of updating the commercial harbor craft data base.  We would appreciate it if you’d take a few minutes and provide us with the following information about XXXXXX Inc. vessels XXXXX, XXXXX and XXXXX.

The information we need submitted for these vessels includes the following:

1)       for the excursion vessel XXXXX, the model year and displacement of the main engines (one has a serial number XXXXXXXX and we would appreciate it if you could provide the serial number for the second main engine), and  

The mains are  beleived to be 1943 grey marine blocks that was an inline 12 cylinder that was separated into 2 inline 671's that's why there is a 12A stamp on 1 and nothing on the other .(12A3065 The 12 is the # of cylinders)

The Displacement is 426 cubic inches.

2)       the model number and serial number for the Mitsubishi auxiliary engine.

I have looked everywhere on the motor and can't find either number the only number I can find is the family # XXXXXXXX.

3)       for the excursion vessel XXXXX, the model year and displacement of the main engines (serial numbers xxxxx, xxxxx and xxxxx), and

The 12V series are 1977 we believe and they are 852 cubic inches or 13.97 cubic liters. 

4)       the model year and displacement of the auxiliary engines (one has a serial number of xxxxx and we would appreciate it if you could provide the serial number for the second Detroit Diesel auxiliary engine).

The 3A87157 has been removed from the vessel and a John Deere 6068T tier 2 engine is in it's place. As for the other engine it is a Detriot Diesel 471, where the serial number is supose to be it isn't, but on the other side there is a raised number D117-113. The displacement for a inline 471 is 284 cubic inches.

5)       for the excursion vessel XXXXX, the model year and displacement of the main engines (serial numbers xxxxx, xxxxx, xxxxx and xxxxx), and

The 12V series are 1980 we believe and they are 852 cubic inches or 13.97 cubic liters

6)       the model year and displacement of the auxiliary engines (serial numbers xxxxx and xxxxx)

The 471 series are  1980 we believe and they are 284 cubic inches.

 

 

Now that I have answered your questions answer one for me on the Athena with my 2 auxiliary's running burning about 4 gallons per hour combined making 80KW , I replaced 1 gen set with a tier 2 John Deere 100KW burning 7.1 GPH If you are claiming to clean up the Exhuaste by 35% how can I do that by burning 80% more fuel. So who's ahead besides the people who sold us the engine?.

 

7)       for the excursion vessel XXXXX, the displacement of the main engines (serial numbers xxxxx and xxxxx), and

The main engine serial #'s are xxxxx and xxxxx and the displacement for 3408 CAT is 1099 cubic inches or 18 cubic liters.

8)       the displacement of the auxiliary engine (serial number xxxxx).

The auxiliary serial #'s are xxxxx and xxxxx and the displacement for 3306 is 638 cubic inches or 10.5 cubic liters. 

If you have any questions, please call me at (916) 327-7843 or write me at krosenkr@arb.ca.gov.

We appreciate your time and your assistance in updating the commercial harbor craft regulatory reporting data base.

Thank you.
