Does anyone here know anything about the Sentra that have a CA (clean air version) for California only ? If so what type of gas
should be used. I paid more for this version its suppose to have some sort of modified engine to make your fuel burn cleaner. Does anyone in California have this CA version.??

Here's what I've read about the CA model. It is made to run on standard 87 octane gas. The engine isn't too disimilar from others except that the whole design of it was centered around being clean running. There are two catalytic converters (or is it three) onboard compared to the usual one on other cars. The ECU probably is extremely strict so don't consider modifying anything.

The big deal about the Clean Sentra is that it has Zero Evaporative emmisions. It has a different filler tube that doesn't allow ANY fuel vapors to exit the tank and pollute the atmosphere. Nissan says you can drive the Sentra 20 miles and emmit fewer emmissions than a standard car that is sitting in the parking lot not running. That is pretty cool.

You only sacrifice a few HP, and it only costs like $500 more. Not such a bad deal if you ask me.

There was a small blurb on one of our local car tv shows "Motoring 2001".

The mention to the Sentra CA is that it is specific to Cali, although I wouldn't know if it is available elsewhere in the U.S.

Canada will not see it anytime soon b/c our gasoline is full of sulphur and it would destroy the costly precious metals used in the CA's catalytic converter and hence render the cat useless.
