    Y'all don't think American diesels are really any better, do ya?



    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    I have zero complaints about my American diesel, which gets better MPG/ton than a Prius.....

    And no one mentioned this yet? They just need to test them all, especially American cars/trucks... http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/...bild/72727888/

    "Cycle Beating" is not new and is VW is certainly not the only company that engages in it.

    From 2-1/2 years ago:

    A Mercedes, four BMWs, and two Mazdas all were within the Euro 6 limits when tested during the mandatory specified drive cycle (the New European Drive Cycle), but many times here when tested on a totally different (BAB) highway cycle:

    For 98% of Americans: (and also the rest 2 % ) :-)

    When VW here in Sweden got these systems with catalyst and lambdasond about 1987 or so, we learned that NOx was a definition of all possible combinations of nitrogen and oxygen where the x stands for an unknown number of oxygen molecules. Today most people here thinks that NOx is a gas of its own...


    and most of us are still alive. :-)


    btw: since 1987 where I work we are 2 persons remaining, me and a guy at spare parts. The others weren't/wasn't (? sorry forgot all gramma since school...) even born 1987...
