The Japanese 10 mode, which I'm guessing is the equivalent of the US city cycle, has way more idling, but not as many abrupt stops and starts, while the 15 mode has a minute of idling, and a couple minutes of consistent driving at ~35mph. Now, supposedly, a 2005 Prius gets ~33km/L=~80mpg on the 10-15 cycle, but only ~55mpg on the EPA's cycle, so there's a pretty big difference between the two cycles. I suppose you could go look up a bunch of different cars, and find the average difference in mileage between the 10/15 and EPA cycles, but really, I don't think it matters much. Maybe Matt could put in an option for different cycles, gallons, and fuel economy measurements?
I like the "Emission sample collected in bag" statement in the picture. Sounds like they're getting a stool sample to take to the Veterinarian.

I would think that the Honda Beat club sites would have this info somewhere "in the bowels of their site", so to speak.

I'm currently wading through all the archives when time permits...over halfway through!

I got a small bit of flak when asking about the mileage of the car. Some members seemed to think driving FE consciously in this car goes against it's spirit. I must admit, it is fun to punch it up to 8,000 RPM!

I seriously wonder how they do that... It must be a real big bag, or permit everything except pollutants.

The easy way is in the garage on the "add garage entry" link look for the EPA's web page link. Once you navigate to your year and model. Click on the name of your car just above the picture and it will give you the combined total. If everyone does this it will add to the consistancy.
Just done that for my Yaris. Thanks!
