Re: Nitrous now prohibited in Ontario
Okay that law makes no sense. Well to run through #1 it basically says that the fuel system hookup has to be visible from the outside of the car and the bottle can be inside the passenger compartment. Sounds easy to me, take the hood off and mount the bottle in the trunk.
Oh and then it goes on to say in part 2 that you also have to have the hookup disconnect, have that disconnect visible and also can't be able to reconnect it in the passenger cabin.
#2 more or less contradicts #1. So seriously, either it is legal or it isn't to even have the hookup present. It makes it fairly plain it is illegal to drive with nitrous on your vehicle, but it doesn't make it clear if you can really drive on public roads with a system present on the car. That makes the burden of the law pretty brutal if you can't drive a vehicle with a hookup present unless it is clearly visible (basically means either you are driving a tractor or with no/clear hood on your car). Sucks mighty ass.
I can see banning it on public roads, but this law basically stats a hookup is illegal for all intents and purposes which means you couldn't drive your car to a track, hook the bottle up and run.
