Seems there is a need for more better data. How could I get access to a machine to test emissions? A 3 or 5 gas analyzer? What would it cost? Can I rent one? I see some very very expensive ones online to buy... but I wonder if I could get funding to rent one through a course I am organizing in January.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
