Dont the PC certificate that you have, have the same type of coloumn or something?
Well don't have any PC for my Storm as its still 7 months old . The Manufacturer's non-polluting vehicle sticker is valid for first year after that you need to get PUC.

K Value actually denotes how dark the exhaust smoke is in terms of visibility , So less the value of K better it is .

I sometimes feel that Pollution standards are too lineant , My CBZ motorcycle used to exceed the norms and strangely it does so still 8 years afterward by huge margin so is my Maruti 800 and Safari.

There is always a huge gap between mandated value and actual output so sometimes wonder how come someone ever falter on PUC.

TMT is running fine, around 500 km was travelled within the city till today after the engine+turbo transplant. The real test and whether all the secondary issues are resolved starts tomorrow itself.

Any long drives yet?
This is what starts tomorrow at 6 am - Tour of Western Arunachal [Tawang, Zemithang, Lumla, Bumla, Dirang, Bomdilla, Eagle Nest, and Orang]

Any issues that have not been resolved thoroughly or any thing that should be a problem, would come up in this absolutely gruelling tour.

Here we go and what we have out at the back

1. 2 Suitcases

2. 4 Bags.

3. 1 bundled wrap blankets [white misshaped cloth covered one at the top]

4. 1 Folding Camp bed

5. 1 Stove

6. 1 Portable Fireplace

7. 20 L Mineral Water jar

8. Towing rope and battery jump start cables.

9. Oversized umbrella

10. A sack of few utensils, and rice and dal ration if emergency stuck situations/days.

11. Small items like hand bags, flask, etc.

Thats the power of a Safari's back. It gobbles everything up.
Tata Safari Dicor 2.2 LX VTT-TMT [The Magnificient Tourer] - the first 2.2 on T-Bhp-img_4731.jpg

BF Goodrich Tyres A/T were put on, per tyre cost around 1k more than the Yokohamas A/T. North sikkim is where I found almost all [Sumos to Boleros] running on this tyre, jagged rocks what it is prone to as they say - immense side wall strength. So when the locals prefer and say good words, that is to be heeded.

Late already to start, but then should be at Siliguri by around 10 pm for a early morning start to Tezpur [will be catching up with AP2AP around in that route or may be later].

Bye then for now, lets see how the VTT performs with this new engine.

Thats a "booty boot" and the beauty being thats space without even the rear seats being folded.

Isn't your rear view blocked due to this? Loosing my hindsight while driving, makes me highly uncomfortable.

A true truck driver doesn't need the IRVM as it is always blocked with luggage and manages fine with his helper and both the ORVMs

Around Delhi, the Yoko AT costs around 700 more than BFG A/T. Looks like in your part of the woods, the opposite is true!
Anwyays, congrats on the car running again and all the best for your trip

That is absolutely strange, think I heard it correctly when they said Yoko A/T costs something 5700 and BFG A/T around 6300. Of course the main reason of deciding being the massive tread design of the BFG A/T. Of course highway tyre noise is a just a bit nosier than the Bridgestone stock H/T tyres.

Other than that BFG A/T performed fantastic, no side wall cut and plus could get out of the ditches, two times, may be just because of these tyres.
