My pile passed SMOG... haha

Not that it will mean much to anybody outside of California, but my pile passed SMOG today, legally, with a fuel cell. I'm stoked.

i thought fuel cells were 50 states legal, as long as there DOT approved for road use, and are installed properly with the proper amount of protection??
