That engine has been hailed as the lowest emission engine of any sort in the rest of the world, but what is the deal with Canada and the US???
I have a 2006 CDI that I had to smuggle into the US from Canada, and the folks at emissions testing always question their equipment when measuring it as it emits practically nothing! I mean, I probably exhale more CO2 than it does. (since the environmental folks have decided that CO2 was a haz-mat gas a few years ago, it's a wonder they've not issued Canadian and US citizens with filtering masks yet...)
Yet it is OK to have black smoke belching trucks, as they are in a different classification!
