Question about re-fueling methods, Jeff:

The Honda Insight is known to flood the evaporative emissions system when filled "to the brim" - meaning, you can see the fuel level in the filler neck, then it slowly drops. You can send several "extra" liters of fuel into the evap system if you keep filling & pausing like this.

Since this presents a potential problem (both for the vehicle, and potentially incorrect fuel consumption calcs) would you be willing to take the car's on-board fuel consumption computer reading for this event?
