There are special parking spots at my school that are reserved for low emission vehicles and I was wondering if a s2k goes into that category?

Nope, but you can park in the spot reserved for LTV's












low torque vehicles.

When it is parked and off the emissions are virtually nil.

Page 18 of Honda's brochure says that it is CARB rated at LEV-2

http://automobiles.honda.com/images/...0-brochure.pdf


These articles in Honda's News page says that the engine is LEV qualified.

Another quote from Honda:
******************
The 2004 S2000 engine has been re-designed and displacement increased by 0.2 liters through lengthening the stroke of piston travel. Improvements to the engine result in available torque and horsepower increasing between 4- and 10-percent among 1000 rpm and 8000 rpm, which helps to boost acceleration at lower rpms. The 2.2-liter, DOHC VTEC 4-cylinder engine meets California's strict Low-Emission Vehicle (LEV) standards. Honda's innovative VTEC advanced variable valve-timing system, operates the S2000 engine's 16 valves (4 per cylinder) in both intake and exhaust modes. This system is compact and tailored to the high-output, high-rpm operating characteristics of the S2000 engine.

What's the world coming to? Sports car with a LEV rated engine.




Oops, I just remembered my Miata is EPA rated 27 city and 36 hwy mpg.

It's all relative, right? Compared to a diesel truck or a Hemi Road Runner, the S2000 most certainly is a "low emissions vehicle".

Old thread, but I'd park it there and not think twice.
