    Honestly I think it's easier than an automatic. With a manual, if the traffic is really heavy, I will put the car in neutral and relax my body entirely. With an automatic I end up leaving the car in...

    Basically they had code in the car that looked for very specific driving habits that would identify if it was driving an EPA cycle. If it did, then it ran the engine a certain way to meet emissions...

    Exactly. From a racing standpoint (which EPA doesn't care about), the octane is so high that it can be really useful if tuned properly. However, the emissions generated for the drive cycles we use...

    you're upset that a federal worker won't give you quotes for a paper against the EV lobby?!?! Is anybody home up there?

    Modern engines are tuned for EGR.

    I really couldn't speak to secondary cats and what not. I just test the vehicles as they are built. It's up to the manufacturers to figure out how to meet the...

    That's one I have no idea about. I get the impression that ethanol in fuel is purely an economic issue. The corn lobby fought for farmers on that one. I can tell you we haven't tested a car on E85...

    Testing is done in Ann Arbor, MI. No I don't. In fact, don't even mention anything about circumventing emissions equipment. The government investigates that kind of stuff.
