Welcome to Microsoft...err..FFS TechNet!
The info shared here is dedicated to D.I.Y. Honda enthusiasts. It is a collection of technical information that I've personally experienced, gathered up, and have exumed from the archives of my brain. Now, I don't plan on having e v e r y t h i n g a Honda enthusiast would ever want to know listed here, cuz I don't know everything! Just things I've personally performed and have seen asked repeatedly on Honda message forums that I am a part of [ie. Honda-tech/ Hybrid Garage / Hybrids.jp forums]. You can find me lurking on Honda-Tech's hybrid & tech forums or on hybrids.jp.

Enjoy your iLife
