I passed smog today. My car did, that is. I went in a half-hour early, was first in line and subsequently had four vehicles behind mine by opening time. The owner said it's nonstop everyday.
My current fuel injection number passes more breezily than my former carb jobs ever did. I've had my share of gross-polluters ...
I learned that there are sting operations going on here (California). Some local agencies have been caught tampering with the results, but I haven't yet learned of the penalties.
Are all or any vehicles smogged where you live? I understand that diesel and gas powered vehicles 1973 and older are exempt in California. A customer told me he has a friend whose truck runs on Mazola (less than a dollar a gallon when he cannot get sufficient used oil from restaurants).
Nothing earth-shaking; merely the highlight of my day.
