Letter from HATCI R&D

I am wondering if anyone ihas ever received a letter from HATCI for submitting their vehicle for emissions and fuel economy testing.
They want it for a week or two to play with it on the dyno and with that they give it back with a full tank of gas and a $150 gas card. They also give you an equivalent loaner.
I am just wondering if anyone has any knowledge or feed back. Thanks.

So with some apprehension I took it to HATCI R&D. They had it for a week and put 90 miles on it. In turn they gave me a fully loaded 2012 Kia Sorento for a loaner which was very nice, full tank of gas and a $150 gift card. All went well and it was like having it in to the dealer for a diagnostic check. Heck they put less miles on it than I would of.

LUCKY! I would love that! Notice anything different? Did they tell you or show you what they did?

They did not show me and as for the calculations and results they would not tell me; hence the pay off. Basically they drain the fuel tank and load it with a standard fuel and put it on a dyno for a MPG test. Kind of like a stress test for your vehicle but if it has a heart attack under their care they take care of it.
When I got it back you could not tell they did anything. There was no smell of fuel, loose fasteners and they vacuumed the inside.

I'm sure they took good care of it. They're professionals.
