Insight Anecdote

I took my Insight for its MoT Test (annual Government inspection) today, the first one I have had to do since I bought it. New legislation means that the tests are thorough but my Insight passed with flying colours.

People waiting at the garage soon took notice of my "digital" car and paid it lots of attention (probably helped by their boredom and the "My car sips petrol, Yours sucks!" logo on the back).

Anyway I thought I'd share with you that the exhaust emissions test machine could not read any emissions from my tailpipe. :D The mechanics had to resort to revving the engine to about 5,000 rpm to get a reading and even then the readings were near zero. As I was leaving, the mechanic said "There is just fresh air coming out of the back of that thing!".....once again there are now a few more people better informed.

wonder if the CVT would get better or the same results. The only reason the 5spd is rated for ULEV instead of SULEV is due to lean burn right?

California requires low sulfur fuel as well. However, I don't know how it compares to UK gasoline though.
