Just like we don't take the emissions of the oil refinery that produces the gasonline nor the emissions of the transportation system that delivers it to the fueling stations into account when determining whether a car meets LEV, ULEV, SULEV, etc. standards, we should similarly not do so when determining whether a particular vehicle is considered a ZEV.

Double standard? Yes, absolutley unquestionably. Justifiable? Only if you are a hypocrite with an agenda.
