Nope.  Just found out about the problem a couple of hours ago, and the
car's been in the hands of the inspection place ever since.

While that stuff might well make the car pass, I do want to "do the right
thing" and not be driving around in a car that kills otters.

My initial reaction to the guy saying I had a problem was to want the car
back, but I let him describe the situation a bit and it was clear that
he's actually very familiar with the K-Jetronic system, so I suspect he
does know what he's doing.  Guess I'll find out tomorrow.  :)

Thanks for the tip.  I'll bear this in mind.
