Re: [DML] Re: Failed CA Emissions UPDATE (still bad)


Do they have different standards for different engines? That would be 
strange. I've have never heard of that.... As far as I know (I might be 
wrong) the standard is the same regardless of engine size and number of 
cylinders. When I used to live in FL I went to get my emissions tested and I 
asked them what the max numbers are. They were all the same for all cars. I 
can still remember those numbers :) NOx: 220ppm, CO: 1.20%. Here in Poland 
when I went to get the DeLorean tested they told me that the allowed limits 
are NOx:100 and CO: 0.50%. And I was pretty surprised when we tested the 
car. I got remarkable results. Even the guys at the testing station were 
surprised. When I did the test it was snowing outside with the temperature 
just below freezing. I drove the car only about 3 miles and it was NOT fully 
warm. I've got NOx: 4 and CO: 0.00% This is what everyone should be getting. 
The DeLorean is a VERY clean running car... if everything is working right.
