For a gas engine to run optimally, it needs a specific ratio of gas and oxygen. Too little air and there will be left-over, unburnt fuel causing the engine to run rich. Too much air can cause poor performance and excess nitrogen-oxide. Both of these scenarios result in air pollutants.

Fixer’s Ride: Volkswagen Vanagon

The Vanagon is the third generation of VW transporter vans that was in production from 1979 to 1990 with U.S. imports stopping shortly thereafter. Originally fitted with an air-cooled rear engine that had notorious reliability issues, they were replaced with water-cooled 1.9 and 2.1 liter engines in 1983. Compared with it’s predecessors, the Vanagon is more reliable, (slightly) more powerful and substantially more comfortable.
