Always fun to pop into the service department every once in awhile to see what's being worked on.

Fabulous! Basjoos does not post often on EM anymore, but I was just looking this car up because this car qualifies for...

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.

That photo was taken by one of the mechanics at the local Honda dealership (an hour's drive from home) where they were repairing a fuel line leak under the gas tank. It was a bit beyond what I could handle myself. I had to remove the underpaneling to access the fuel line. Driving around without the under panel has dropped my mileage by about 6 mpg. Also had to repair the damage done by the mechanics to that front wheel well cover.

Well, that explains why the wrench wasn't permitted to drive the Evora.

Six mpg for a belly pan, now that is something else.

I may have just become a fan of the pan.

Great to see you and the aerocivic still truckin'!

YKYAEM when you have to take your car in for service and you spend twice as much time removing your mods that they do repairing your vehicle.
