Just saw this on BBC, exceptionally good emmisions reductions from the FIAT group.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/6076800.stm

What are Suzuki up to though? ..they make little tiny, tinny cheap cars, powered by Gerbils and elastic bands and they are the 2nd worst performer at emmisions :eek:

@Bigfoot : you aren't doing the environment any good in a Nissan, might just have to switch back to a sensible Alfa :lol:

Cheers,
TB

Theoretical CO2 levels are one thing, actual are another. For example I drove a 1.4 petrol FIAT Punto on Australian roads and unless you almost 'floor' the car through the gears you are in danger of being rammed from behind because the car was so slow.... I suspect the CO2 levels would be very high when a car is driven esentially flatout through the gears.

Are Fiat not manufacturing Suzuki's diesel engines?

Is the Suzuki SX4 and the Fiat Sedici not essentially the same car?

Are Suzuki not using the Same petrol GM engines that Fiat are now using.

Why the difference?

:confused:

I don't think reducing a cars emmisions and C02 output will make a difference at all. The reason being if a car uses less fuel you can afford to drive it more, therefore you end up using giving out the same CO2.

more MPG = more miles people will drive. Simple really.
