Of course it's worth repairing! It clearly has a crabon fliber hood!

You're not already driving/co-piloting? Bringing your Insight?

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?

Yes it's a used hood [as I'm sure you know]. I have to scuff it down and paint it white. I worked on the car all day yesterday and there seems to be hope for it. The plan is to enter it in this event. I sincerely hope you can get someone to navigate for you, as we missed not having you at last year's event.

Jeff feels that Team Swift is planning on a more serious effort this year. I hope we can keep the Ecomodders in front once again.

Did you know that the diesel Smarts are only .8 liter!

Yes, but there's the issue of their automated-manual gearboxes, making it harder to wring max efficiency out of them vs. if they had a 100% manual. (I could be mistaken, that's my understanding anyway.)

It would be cool to see those Smarts ecomodded ! Then again, it would be harder to beat them..

We will use the same honour system as in the past - as long as you fill up at the same pump and with the same system, we'll count those results.

If you feel that the refueling is inaccurate, we can defer to your computer reading. No problems!
