I had to smog test my S4 when I "imported" it to CA
after buying it new in VA (50-state certified, why
should it need testing because I brought it into
the state instead of AoA??)  Anyhow, it blew all
<<Why VA?  My choices were a 6-month waiting list or
$5k over MSRP in CA.  The exact car I wanted was
sitting on a lot in VA and the dealer eagerly sold it
for MSRP.  $1100 for shipping VA to CA>>

I see 22-23 on the computer around town.  Freeway is
more like 26-27.  Measured matches computer pretty
closely... reset it when you fill the tank and check
it on the next fillup.
