Tim, I think you answered your own questioning by saying you practically emptied the fuel tank of the old gasoline and added a new tankful with a little bottle of Lucas - next to nothing. Oxygenated fuel has a real short shelf life so keeping the gas fresh is important. Really glad you got the job done, finally, and won't have to repeat the situation for another two years. I wonder how much stricter the regulations will be by then?

Well I still have holes and dents in the exhaust, still have rattles, I still may want to route that pipe over the frame. But at least now I don't have to get it all done by next weekend.

After all the hassle I had getting my old 60 to pass some years ago, I still get a racing heartbeat and sweaty palms whenever I take a vehicle in to test. I think your new numbers show how sloppy the diagnostic equipment is - lower CO should mean higher CO2. Anyhow, glad to hear it passed. I do wonder what the heck she was staring at under there - maybe she's a jeep owner and was shocked by the stout drive line?

Congrats on getting it through...Next year I'm up on both the 80 and LX...I can hardly wait

Kevin the irony is if we lived 20 minutes north we wouldn't have to do this.. it's just because we're in the metro area. Same for Corbet out in Durango, they don't have to deal with this either.

Jeff I don't think she typed in numbers, but she clearly had to buy-off on some type of visual inspection. Maybe I was a special case because it's a re-test?

Bruce I know what you're saying about CO2 vs. CO, should be an inverse relationship right? Been a while since I balanced an equation, but I still get the principle.. how can they both go down

Did you say Roller Girl? If that is the case they can bring the testing station down here.

So I got stickers today.. since I was 3 months late had to pay a 3 month penalty of $25/month.. so $177 was my total bill for registration. The only good part of the late fee is my new renewal month is now March, not November.. so I do get a full year starting now. Had they back dated this to November and still stuck me with a fee I'd have been a little torqued off.
