Hi
I recently watched a programme on TV showing how they do the emission and fuel tests on all new cars.
There is no way the cars can reach the figure given. Warm engines, static on nice rollers (any similarity to a road surface s purely coincidental), and no drag due to wind. The only thing they may be good for is a comparison between makes, assuming no fiddles.
It will be interesting to see what the revised VW group figures come up with. I guess that meeting the new E6 spec has cost some loss in efficiency for all new cars due to the extra weight and complexity involved,
Regards
Mike

Thats the point, everybody knows it and it's a farce to keep this test. It should be changed with a more realistic and truthful test that worldwide all manufactures must comply with. No more smoke and mirrors, just tell the bloody truth !
