THC - Total hydrocarbons NMHC - Non-methane hydrocarbons CO - Carbon monoxide NO - Nitrogen oxides PM - Diesel particulate matter Well let's look at a Golf 5door TDI S HC+NOx 0.207 CO 0.382 NOx 0.158 Particles 0.0004 Estimated fuel consumptions; EC Urban (mpg) 49.6 EC Extra Urban (mpg) 74.3 EC Combined (mpg) 62.8 So i'm not entirely sure the arguement that it would fail emission laws holds up.
