Perhaps then the industry would be ending the year on a happier note.</p><p>Cameron Diaz filmed onboard a skid steer loader may have made a positive contribution, Dustin Hoffman with a tun-nel boring machine, or how about Mick-ey Rooney extolling the benefits of Se-lective Catalytic Reduction technology? Maybe Hulk Hogan discussing the mer-its of variable geometry turbochargers.</p><p>Such support from Tinseltown would sweep away the blues.</p><p>Its easy to generalize, but 2012 has probably been slightly worse than an-ticipated for most of the construction/agricultural equipment manufacturers and engine makers.</p><p>This has been the result of a cocktail with nasty ingredients. There are weak economies pretty much everywhere, not least in Europe, where the end of the financial difficulties seems very dis-tant; prospects in the Middle East are fragile and even in once-supercharged China the economy has cooled. There does, though, seem to be demand from Russia (With Love).</p><p>Even in Brazil, a star-performing country recently, one truck maker high-lighted that the market has been at a lower level in 2012 compared to the pre-vious 12 months because of the transi-tion to Euro 5 and a flatter economy.</p><p>Adding to the woes is that in many parts of the world, manufacturers costs have been rising steadily.</p><p>No one seems to be expecting a sudden, rapid upturn in fortunes, but the grim prospect of another reces-sion is (hopefully) slim. Theres plenty of hope for the future and, thankfully, there remains admirable resilience as we end 2012.</p><p>As they enter 2013, executives will be feeling shaken, not stirred. dpi</p><p>While it might reflect a level of personal naivet, I believe most reg-ulatory bodies have noble intentions when it comes to the standards they establish. The problem most often seems to be that regulators dont really grasp how things work in the real world.</p><p>The latest example involves E15, the fuel blend of 15% ethanol and 85% gasoline (petrol) that has been ap-proved by the Environmental Protec-tion Agency and is just beginning to be sold in the U.S.A. E15 contains 5% more ethanol than the E10 blend that has been sold for more than a decade.</p><p>When used in model year 2001 or newer motor vehicles, E15 is fine. When its used in anything else particularly the millions of small en-gine products used around the coun-try its actually illegal and will result in significant engine damage.</p><p>So whats going to prevent people from buying the wrong fuel? Accord-ing to the EPA, a warning label on the fuel dispensing pumps ought to do it. The agency has also proposed mini-mum E15 fuel purchases of 15 L at a single transaction the logic be-ing that such a restriction will prevent people from filling the smaller contain-ers that are typically used to refuel small equipment.</p><p>Seeing as E15 is also generally less expensive than E10 or other blends, its likely that the price is going to distract a lot of people from seeing any label. And as its the first time ever that they cant use the same fuel in their small engines that they use in their car, people are go-ing to make mistakes.</p><p>Which leaves the small engine and equipment manufacturers in a tough spot. Do they take a hard line against misfueling, thereby gaining the enmity of their customers? Or do they eat the costs, shrinking their bottom lines?</p><p>No one has any answers yet. dpi</p><p>Diesel Progress International Edition</p><p>Editorial &amp; SalESMichael J.

Production at Volvo Buses </p><p>plant in Sffle, Sweden will stop at the end of June 2013, provided the nec-essary union negotiations are com-pleted. About 330 permanent employ-ees and about 60 consultants will be affected by the closure.</p><p>Volvo Buses will retain its aftermar-ket function and technical support in Sffle, securing support for the com-panys Nordic customers and offering local employment. The operation will be developed to cover about 50 jobs.</p><p>The demand for new buses in Eu-rope has dropped steadily over the past few years, paralleled by consid-erable pressure on prices, particularly </p><p>in the Nordic markets, said Hkan Karlsson, president, Volvo Bus Corp. By concentrating the production of complete buses in one single plant, we can reduce our costs and thus re-verse our negative profitability trend.</p><p>Volvo Buses has reported it has considerable excess capacity in its European complete bus plants, even though its market position has improved over the past year. The company expects volume growth in Europe to remain low in the coming years and that price pressure will con-tinue. By focusing all its production in the much larger plant in Poland, Volvo Buses said it expects to achieve the economies of scale essential to tackle the increasingly tough competition in the market. The plant in Poland has </p><p>VolVo MoVes Bus Production to Poland</p><p>Diesel Progress international 4 november-December 2012</p><p>industrY neWs</p><p>As the demand for new buses in Europe has dropped steadi-ly over the past few years, Volvo Buses has concentrated its production to one plant in Poland to reduce costs.</p><p>four times the capacity of the one in Sweden.</p><p>Together with the staff in Sffle and Poland we have invested in new city bus models and improved efficiency, but unfortunately the negative devel-opment of the European market none-theless forces us to take this decision regarding our employees in Sffle, Karlsson said.</p><p>Volvo Buses in Sffle will now be-gin trade union negotiations on the relocation of production. At the same time we will examine opportunities for finding similar employment within the Volvo Group, Karlsson said. dpi</p><p>For More inForMationwww.volvobuses.com</p><p>DPI484.indd 1 11/7/12 11:11 AM</p></li><li><p>A match for every challenge.</p><p>ENTARON XD maximum performance in compact form</p><p>When the going gets tough you need not only performance but also flexibility </p><p>and endurance.
