Diesel Explained

Diesel Explained

Cars emit a mixture of CO2 NOx and particulates.
Diesel cars emit more NOx and particulates, but less CO2 than their petrol equivalents.


NOx & particulates affect local air quality and are an urban challenge


CO2 is a pollutant which causes global warming and is a threat to the earth

Diesel cars emit more NOx and particulates, but less CO2 than their petrol equivalents

Diesel Engines Have Improved

Cars made after 2015, are built to Euro 6 standards. This requires them to emit around a third of the NOx and a fifth of the particulates of a car built before 2009.

Diesel Cars Produce Less CO2

Diesel cars are still more efficient than their petrol equivalents. They use less fuel and emit on average 20% less CO2.

Cars Are Not The Biggest Contributors To Air Pollution

In Greater London, diesel cars account for only 11% of NOx emissions, while petrol cars account for 7%. Other sources include: industry, trains, gas boilers and many types of machinery.

Diesel Cars Now Have Very Advanced Filter Systems

Many diesel cars now have diesel particulate filters and selective catalytic reduction systems which reduce emissions.

The Government has stated that charging cars to enter a Clean Air Zone (CAZ) should be a measure of last resort for Local Authorities. All other alternatives should be exhausted first

There are currently no Government plans to change diesel taxation in a way that will retrospectively punish motorists

The strictest Clean Air Zones will not charge new diesel cars. Only cars older than 2015 (pre-Euro 6) will face penalties

New diesel cars are cleaner than ever. By September 2018, all new cars will have passed a strict emission test carried out under real driving conditions, before being sold


Every driver should purchase the car best suited to their individual requirements
