*notice them hubcaps*

...that Metro is running! *wink*

I think I am a little closer to getting me some of them...

I would like to find a place that has some sort of warranty on them....but if not, I'll just get them and if they don't increase my mpg's they will be offered up on eBay, ya know?

There it is again... that

There it is again... that damn tractor engine powering a car. If I need to do anything it's get me one of those.

now I'm starting to wonder why I didn't get a Geo Metro instead of a Honda.

Oh yeah, that's it. Maybe I can find another Honda n600 and throw one of these tractor engines in it. 1200 pounds and a 3 cylinder diesel engine would be my daily driver for sure.

(never mind, i'm getting used to it. i didn't buy it for the love.)

in fact, in trying to figure out what the uber-efficient metro "XFi" stands for on the swift forum, the best we could come up with was "Xtinguishes Female interest".

Haha, I have nothing but

Haha, I have nothing but love for the metro, but gee whiz, it's not very cute. It is wicked light though. But still, honda has some better technology.

Viscon

Did anybody notice at the bottom of the article it said:
"Fuel efficiency of the 20 percent biodiesel/diesel mixture was enhanced by the additive “Viscon,” which is the chemical polyisobutylene." Another vote for PIB.

Spiro exhaust

I can't find anything on Google about the Spiro exhaust they mention in the article. Could this be the same thing?
