i am thinking of getting a high mileage insight. When the battery pack does eventually die, can you drive the car without the ima, as a conventional gas car? Are there any mods that have to be done? Will the car pass inspection as a gas only car? What financial liabilities are there on this car as a gas only car that are not present on a conventional car? (i.e: ecu, pcm, special cat, etc.) Can you convert the car into a simpler, less prone to emissions/electronic failure car? That is the real question. I would like a modern crx hf, without all the gadgetry.
