Petrol vs Diesel....again

Post by M60NJP » 21 Oct 2017, 07:57

I was actually reading the article about the Police raiding BMW's HQ in respect of a cartel for car sales, and spotted this in a link on the page:

Not the outcome I expected, but a real damnation of claimed vs actual pollution by the car makers. It's a long article............
