I have read from a few different sources about the "carbon footprint" from a 2 cycle engine and Im having a hard time believing that an engine that gets such high mpg could actually pollute as much as a vehicle getting 20 mpg. I have a Ford 7.3l Diesel that gets 14 mpg on a good day. If fitted with a C. Converter is the output as bad as they say ? Does anyone have concrete numbers besides some study in Sweden that is often mentioned but no real numbers given other than " it is worse that a passenger vehicle" Im really having a hard time buying that. I have operated my bike for 300 miles and used less than 2 gallons of mixed fuel - how could that pollute more than the average of vehicles on the road when you factor in trucks like mine and Joe Bob's 1981 Ford pick up ?? How much pollution could be produced from two gallons of fuel ? Im not buying it . Anyone got any real numbers ?
