Yes, we can all do our part to reduce emissions but burning more fuel isn't the answer! Bare in mind that it is the single occupant GAS SUV that is killing us. If you are basing that on population percentage bring up the conversation of China with OP! Sorry, had to say it.
As far as the '07 not running my only insight into that is from OP himself (or his mule) but I do trust in his insight. That said, it is likely only a matter of time before someon out there builds a EPA approved work around on those sensors. I further believe that it isn't the exhaust system that is causing the problems but more the high RPM and the number of injection events on the new trucks. Maybe I'm wrong (it's happened) but that's my opinion.
I've been running ULSD in western canada now for a while with no concerns except a slight decrease in day to day mileage (5%).
I would also note that the 2007 and up trucks will need to keep this system intack somehow as the DPF system is not cheap to replace - rumours have it pegged at around $5000. Also, that they need to run on the ULSD because by putting more then the odd tank of LSD in there and the DPF will crap out and you will be out of pocket.
