    New emission test rules?

    It's generally accepted that the economy test in NEDC does not reflect real road driving conditions and cannot be achieved in real life so you don't need a test to try to reflect that. The test can only be used as a benchmark against other cars. So how about just have a test which measures...

    CO2 Emission for 2002 C220CDi Avantgarde Estate

    Low emission cars C-charge u-turn?

    The intelligent powers that be have realised that motorists are buying low emission cars (as encouraged) so they don't pay the congestion charge. NOW TFL are reconsidering...it may cause congestion (nothing to do with lower income of course). Decision to be made in the new year :mad: Happy new...

    Here is the proposal for the 2008 EuroV emission limits. Interesting that the direct injection petrols are being restricted to the same particulate limits as diesels. Up 'til now they've been having a field day. "The proposal will now be considered by the European Parliament and the...

    MoT- new emission tests

    In N. Ireland, new emission tests have been recently introduced. For diesel vehicles, these tests involve revving the vehicle up to its 'governed speed' and measuring emissions. These may involve doing this up to 6 times. For petrol vehicles, they are revved to 2500 rpm. Am I right in thinking...
