    I put a battery in the Mirage and started it today - it definitely did not idle smoothly at first. Lumpy. Well, lumpier than usual . It smoothed out within 5 seconds.

    Now that you mention it, I experienced the same problem with a "non-ready" OBD system a few years ago when I took my Metro out of storage (batt had been disconnected) and it needed an emissions test.

    Thanks for the replies.

    What made me ask was exactly anecdotes like those.

    You'd think that engine control related adjustments would be written in non-volatile memory, but it sounds like...

    Ha! Fake account. You'd think that spammers joining to covertly post links on the forum would try to fly a little more under the radar than that!
  13. Effects of long-term disconnected car battery?

    Aside from losing obvious things like radio presets and clock, are there any other effects from disconnecting the battery in a modern car?

  14. On the road again... soon!

    The Even Fancier Metro is going back on the road this weekend!

    Summer's over - the turdbucket Miata is going back into hibernation.

    I love driving both of these cars for very different reasons.

    I don't think I've gone past 75 MPH in a Mirage... so can't answer either question. :D

    Ironically, the one time I went 75 / 120 km/h was to document the fuel economy of a G4 that I borrowed from...

    Not a fan of the red plastic trim in the interior, though! Reminds me of 16 year-old kids who "customize" their 15 year-old Civics. :D

    They actually redesigned the front end (face) of the standard Prius... so much negative feedback on the initial design! But it was so out-there, I actually like it. And the back of the car reminds...

    30 MPG? Oh. I was just pulling a number out of my... hat. I really have next to zero interest/knowledge of CUV's. Honestly, the SUV/CUV craze is slowly extinguishing my life-long interest in cars.

    But going by everything else (pics, odometer, location, timing), I'd bet my crapcan Miata it's the same car.
