Those of you who’ve taunted me about my little car–eat my dust! Not only do I get great mileage and have a SULEV rating, an Insight won a road rally in November! And, this was done without compromising the car’s green footprint.

“This project would have less significance if we cheated with the emissions and vehicle efficiency,” he said. “It would be very easy to get more horsepower from the lightweight three cylinder Insight engine by running richer mixtures at higher revs and removing the catalytic converters, but this would destroy the CO2 emissions record of the car which are currently the lowest recorded by a UK market production car.

“We believe our car to be even below this figure when using the bioethanol fuel blend and we will be doing tests to prove this soon.”

Pardon me while I gloat. :)
