I wonder if the the CARB states couldn't just tack a significant registration surcharge on vehicles with a lower mileage rating, and avoid the EPAs nonsense?

Under current law they can’t but they can tax the other way around which is very unfortunate and should be illegal.

The only way they can tax more is on something substitive like weight.

GM, Toyota, FCA back Trump on California emissions standoff
However, they still want the feds to strike a 'middle ground' with California

DOJ subpoenas automakers who sided with California against Trump

That's Ford, Honda, VW and BMW. GM, Toyota and FCA are on the Trump administration's side, for those who are keeping score/wish to vote with their wallets. And everybody will be heading to court for the next year at least, if not the next 5 years.

Those automakers should just ignore the subpoena. That's what the executive branch has been doing to Congress. So the subpoena must be optional.

How might one keep the atmosphere of a state from mixing with other state's atmosphere?

Maybe I wasn't clear. The people of the state of NM should be free to adopt more stringent standards than the federal laws require if they so choose. Piggybacking on stricter standards enacted by a coalition of other states is a practical approach, but hell they could decide to outlaw all wheeled vehicles if they want (although that would likely derail a lot of statehouse reelection bids)
