Triple B

As in black bug butt as my kids call it!
Bought this while researching a fuel sipper for replacement of my VW TDI.

Thoughts after a week:
1) Loud in cabin on highways.
2) Smooth over bumps, but rough over dips and holes.
3) Ultra comfy seats, perfect amount of support and squshyness
4) Easy for everyone to get in and out
5) Stereo sucks
6) MPG so far is about what I expected, around 35.

Why better than diesel?

In what way is our HR-V better on the environment than a TDI that uses anywhere from 35% to 50% less fuel? Love my HR-V but it is a fuel guzzler compared to the Jetta TDI I owned.

Without the corrected firmwares, "cheater diesels" are pretty bad on nitrous oxides. It also takes more raw oil to make a gallon of fuel, but that's offset by the increased energy density (and resulting mileage). Some say the energy required to make a diesel engine is also greater because they're more complicated.

There are arguments going both ways, what's worse, CO2 or NOx? Kind of interesting to read about

Volkswagen TDI diesel cars will likely be phased out - Autoweek

http://autoweek.com/article/vw-diese...k-away-diesels


Their diesel engines were spewing up to 40 times the allowable level of pollutants in actual road use.


I remember from university automotive engineering class, the particulates you breath in (the funny smell of a diesel) never leave your body, they just slowly accumulate.


The HR-V is Tier 2 Bin 5, meets all modern standards
