Seems like someone made a mistake in legislation
and now DMV tells me that I have to smog my Honda GX...
Yet 14,000 lbs CNG vehicle are still exempted.
Or get some kind of paper from Bureau of Automotive Repair (BAR in Sacramento) saying that my car is exempt.
I did call BAR (1800 952 5210) and “expert” Glen explained that
14,000 lbs is a bus and if we divided emission produced between 80 passengers…. and so on, but today I’ve seen a garbage CNG truck without 80 passengers on board….
He also compared burning temperature of NG and LPG!? (NG burn.temp. twice as lower)
At the end he gave me phone number to schedule a smog check because not all smog check stations are equipped to test my car!... (1800 622 7733)
I filed a complaint here http://dca.ca.gov/ (tel. 1866 799 3811)
Meanwhile getting deeper in the subject I found this:
My car produced 10% of any Hybrids emission
I have NG stove inside of my house as many others, this is safe and clean energy.
And I’m not an idiot!
