Re: Car makers manipulate emissions

Interesting article.
It's a pity the testing regulators cannot select a vehicle at random off the production line and seal it until tested without modifications.
With so many manufacturers and engine and transmissions configurations around the world it is an impossible task to get everyone to abide by the rules fairly.
But I think we all know that what is quoted in the sales brochures is not what is really achievable on the roads.
Currently in Renoir White's garage:
Renault Trafic 1.7 Petrol Vauxhall Astra 1.4i & in bits Triumph Bonneville T140E & H-D XLH1200
