Thumbs down Doh

Just so you all know Juicy failed again once again for Nox. My readings were as follows

Carbon Monoxide:My score 0.2 grams per km the standard is 24.2 so I passed that one easy & to give you an idea of just how clean it is that is less then 1/10ths of what a new car is allowed

Hydrocarbons: My score 0.66grams per km the limit is 2.1 grams per km so once again passed easily

Oxides of Nitrogen: My score 3.84g/km limit 1.9g/km so fail by EPA standards the RTAs standards are actually far more lenient & I would have passed easily but it is an EPA defect not an RTA one unfortunately

So what do I do next. Pretty simple really. Richen her up I passed the first 2 so easily that I can afford to run heaps more fuel & more fuel will lower Nox.

Only problem is there is only 2 testing stations in the state & they are both booked for a month (as usual) so I have to wait until then to take it down for my next go. Which has been my main problem right along every time I test it I have to wait several months before they'll let me try again which has really drawn things out but hey I'm definately getting there so shouldn't be too much longer.

Re: Doh

You should make a couple of bookings so if you fail you can back the next day

Re: Doh

I made 2 bookings a week apart from each other actually. I'm abit annoyed at myself that I didn't do that this time but I thought I'd pass so I didn't bother but I made sure I would be safe next time.

Re: Doh

Can you find a mechanic who has an exhaust gas analyser so you know you'll pass before you go in?
