I wonder what is deemed as a small engine?That'll be anything that's small and turbo charged. Everyone knows if you keep them off boost they'll be as economical as the engine size suggests. Great for computers to rig.
But once you put your foot down that power has to come from somewhere and that 14:1 air fuel ratio doesn't change. So for as much air as the turbo compresses the fuel injectors will be putting in the same fuel.
Yep - http://www.honestjohn.co.uk/news/volkswagen-emissions-scandal/volkswagen-emission-scandal-co2-figures-now-implicated-for-the-first-time/ looks like the ACT is affected!http://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/i...000-cars-have-false-co2-and-mpg-certification
"A VW spokesman has confirmed that the latest scandal affects Audi, Seat, Skoda and VW cars with what are described as "small" engines. Reports suggest that cars powered by the 1.4-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with Cylinder On Demand technology are affected. Further reports suggest that VW BlueMotion diesel models with three and four-cylinder diesel engines are also affected"
The UK government did say they won't be adjusting VED bands for the nox issuebet the other manufacturers are shitting bricks aswell. This co2 confession might drag them in as they've got to be using similar tricks. VW might be trying to level the playing field.
If you go on the seat website and type in your reg number it will tell you whether your vehicle is affected. My 184 fr isn't so clearly it isn't going to affect all mk3 diesels.From the BBC article:
"Cars with 1.4, 1.6 and 2.0 litre motors are thought to be releasing more of the greenhouse gas, CO2, than previous tests had shown."
Looks like it could affect all the MK3 diesels then
