Edward Niedermeyer for Bloomberg View published THIS ARTICLE on April 22nd discussing the ongoing Volkswagen diesel emissions scandal and how it is not just VW or even diesel vehicles whose benefits were being exaggerated and manipulated.
Some quotes from the article worth noting:
- “U.K. authorities announced this week that their testing shows diesel cars emitting an average of six times the legal limit of nitrous oxides, an air pollutant, in real world conditions.
- “…investigations and prosecutions have focused largely on nitrous oxide emission from diesel engines. But given the scope of the problems and the cheating exposed, there’s little reason to believe the scandal won’t spread to gasoline engines and carbon dioxide emissions….”
- “The public impact (emphasis added) of automakers bending or breaking the rules on nitrous oxide emissions are local: High concentrations of the pollutant are linked to elevated rates of respiratory diseases and cancer in cities with large diesel fleets.”
CNG vehicles’ emissions are cleaner and their fuel is cheaper than their diesel counterparts….you can count on that! Call or email us today for more information about adopting CNG. We hope to see you around the pump!
