I bought a plug-in hybrid last year (a Volt), and I have used so little gas that it failed its emissions test, because the shops all depend on the on-board diagnostics now.

So to legally drive my car, I have to burn a bunch of petroleum in the next two weeks to prove that the engine is within emissions laws. Hilariously sad.
