On another note: the car does not only look almost-new, but also gets 55 mpg! However with much less acceleration power compared to other VXs. The high mpg would suggest to me that the combustion cannot be that much off from specifications. But what do I know

P.S.: I get conflicting information from different mechanics whether the high HC means "lean" or "rich" combustion. All smog values are in range, except HC is 280 at 25mph. (That's many times the max allowed value!!) I'm not sure how mechanics who do this stuff day in and out for 30+ years can come to so different and conflicting conclusions ("lean" vs. "rich") of the high CO value?! I showed the exact same copy of the same smog result sheet to the mechanics!!
