Interesting, knew they had the cheat on the test but never realised it was also so far removed from real driving. If this fella knows what he's doing looks like we've set the gun sights wrong again

Insiders have known this for years but don’t forget all public transport gets to game the system too!

The French got diesels a reprieve via a complicit EU

Total lifecycle emissions is the only way to go - total lifecycle emissions including manufacturing mean that petrol Hybrids / Electric / Fuel cells will be the route we take.

Diesel is OVER

My daily is a petrol hybrid

I read that ten minutes ago. Interesting. I almost had a car converted to LPG about 16 years back, but didn't. It'd be interesting to see what their stats are.

The line about electric cars kicking up dust is daft, seeing as all vehicles will, but there was also mention of brake wear on electric ones; I'm assuming that relates to whatever the system is that uses braking to aid battery recharging.

Far as I'm concerned re motor vehicles they need to sort out the congestion first, however they do it, arguing about emissions per se without doing something to get us moving more efficiently is crazy.

At least 4 times an hr even in a place like Cott we have half a mile of stationary traffic waiting for 5 minutes for a train to go by quite often with less people on than in my car.

Have we got an integrated transport strategy, lol.

I bought my first Hybrid two months ago which solves the city centre smog issue as it runs purely on electric for much of our short journeys. Over its lifetime - yes including making the battery - it will emit 40% less noxious shit into the atmosphere. The congestion will sort out the diesel. modern Euro lev 6 diesels hate sitting in traffic as their particulate filters get done quickly and they are very expensive to replace. Unless you have a 30mile motorway commute don’t even think about a modern diesel.
If you live in a city the diesel is killing you anyway so don’t buy em.

Re: congestion all assumptions made always assume full public transport and always empty cars.
Neither is true.
Uber’s ride sharing has cut taxi numbers dramatically around here and they make shorter journeys too (the app finds the nearest cars to your pick up point).

Tarmac over the rails and double road capacity overnight. Introduce German Laws for lorries (no overtaking, no lorries on weekends) there is loads that could be done but the public transport lobby is full of lies and propaganda.

not sure it's a blanket ban in Germany for lorries, think it's just on certain roads?

A limit on food miles would solve 50% of problems overnight, grow and eat your own, the way forward

Agree with that - online shopping for groceries is so much greener - seems almost immoral not to.

No, the handcart is the alternative item they deliver for what should have been an artichoke. Still, serves the idle bastards right. ScotlandDiamonds 9

Yes indeed inside the building and into the kitchen - the only action required is to put the stuff in the cupboards.

Of course given that my order was picked directly from a distribution centre means that hundreds of wasteful food miles (taking it to the store and then back home by private car) are eliminated.

Saves hours a week and frees up more time to do some value added work for society.

Is it picked directly from dist centre as it's quite normal to see pickers in store collating home deliveries?

Depends on the company you use.

Ocado have a distribution centre, Morrisons pick from store.

All of them eliminate significant food miles as a result of home delivery.

Those that had distribution centres and cross docks already could pick from them - those that didn't now use the store as a quasi-cross-dock

Used to use Ocado when I lived in the UK. Was always satisfied.

Also, I bought my wife a diesel Qashqai for it's 4 wheel drive SUV capabilities, combined with relatively high km per litre for her 100km a day drive and the fact that it was advertised as being the cleanest in it's class. I await the class action and compensation for being lied to.
