More data collected today. I drove 16 miles to a meeting, keeping the cat lit. It's a route I'd routinely get 55-60 mpg on. I got 38 mpg going out, and 43 mpg coming back.

I stopped at the smog test station coming into town. They wanted $50 to do a complete test with printout, but did a manual test for me for $20, with my car on the dyno rollers. See photos. My 900 mile drive to SoCal cleaned the cat. HC levels dropped below average for the most part. There's not much else that can be gathered from the data, since I don't know what rpms the car was running, what gear it was in, etc.
