Yes, in fact Kenworth and ALL the new big trucks have less-polluting engines now (Sorry, couldn't resist...)

BOT: John, I don't know if you're old enough to remember them, but back in the 1960's, the USPS ran three-wheeled mail carts that looked like an overgrown Vespa with a big box on the back. I can't remember at the moment who made them (Cushman?) But, as they were retired in the early '70s, kids would snap 'em up because they could be driven at age 15 without a regular driver's license.
