    Hi all

    I tried a quick search to see if I could find this to no avail.

    The Driver and Vehicle Agency are adamant the CO2 emission for my March 2002 C220CDi Advantgarde estate is 189g/km placing it in the Band J £215 pa car tax band.

    I am convinced that the correct CO2 emission figure is 169g/km (Band H £175pa)

    Who is right??

    Anyone out there with a similar car?? I have always paid it but am going to query it if im right (or just go 'Doh!' if im not)

    Thanks again, Bob

    Mine is rated at 188g/km IIRC. The lighter car (C class-mines an E) should be significantly lower CO2 based emissions as the fuel economy is greater.

    189.. no estates are listed as 169.. only a few versions of the saloon.

    My automatic S211 E320CDI is rated at 194g/km.

    Surely a S203 C220CDI should be noticeably lower than this?

    Manual or auto?

    I take it your V5 states 189g/km?

    No really, as both cars get a similar MPG (on a run anyway) so as fuel usage is proportional to CO2 emissions they will not be too dissimilar.

    Makes me hanker after the more powerful refined car having just typed that lot out:(:eek:

    Yeah - if there is no fuel saving, nor VED reduction, then you're right - why bother with the smaller engine?

    I am surprised. :eek:

    A manual gearbox will lower CO2 output - Auto's are higher as gear changes are carried out with throttle still open unlike manual where you take your foot off the gas and of course this closes the throttle and switches off fuel flow briefly thus giving lower emissions.
