Re: Bio Diesel Emissions numbers
What's funny is the new diesels now pollute about as much as a Prius. In 2010, diesels will be king of low emissions vehicles. Already the diesels with the DPF's produce 25% less carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, and carbon dioxide than most gas engines, and produce about the same amount of particulate matter and NOX. Those numbers will drop in a few years.
The sucky part is getting everything to work. Too bad they can't figure out how to get performance and still keep the engine smokeless like the Audi R10. Oh well, just a few more years and we might be there.
Oh yeah, and if you use bio-diesel on a clean diesel vehicle, you cut carbon monoxide and hydrocarbon pollution in half again. Even the tree hugging hippies can't hate on diesels anymore.
Of course I won't be trading my smoking, skinking, oil burning truck any time soon for a "clean diesel" pickup.
