SMOG….This is of no interest to anyone outside California, and probably not even of interest to very many people in California, but I got my car smog checked yesterday (it was the first time, since you don’t have to do it for the first six years) and I was amazed at the results:

My car is actually something of a gas guzzler, and I assume the smog equipment is just standard stuff. But it didn’t register above 2% of the legal maximum in any of the tests. 2%! Am I the only one who didn’t know that modern smog equipment is that good?
