Diesel Cars Backlash & Thoughts

Post by DangerMouseUK » Tue Jan 09, 2018 7:56 pm

Hi Guys,

So as you know today big diesel car thing, again, in the press;

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-42621112

What are all your thoughts on this?

I thought Euro6 cars were safe? I personally really like the D300 engine in the Velar, would even go as far as to say its my favourite!

But then again, times are changing apparently!

Thanks

A few years ago we were told to move from petrol to diesel - now it appears the reverse - l bought the D300 because it was a Euro 6 and was told clean diesel - The car drives so well and l am sticking but don’t believe the government know what they are advising or further what they are doing. The confusion will swing back and forth for electric cars are years away - The roads are in a very poor state when will they be bought up to scratch?.
Poor quality roads need addressing before ever lamp post has a charging point!

Does anybody know if the euro 6 d300 is ok for London’s ULEZ ? As sometimes I have to venture into it, my current sdv6 doesn’t as it’s just before the addition of the ad-blu

Yeah all D300s are Euro6 and for cars thats enough now.

Obviously there's the congestion charge to pay but no T-Charge or ULEZ charge.

That could change in the future but for now, Euro6 Diesels are ok !

Islington are going a bit silly with their blanket increase on diesel parking prices though - Westminster have started trialling double charging for pre-Euro6 diesels - no idea why Islington couldn't implement a similar scheme !

I have a friend who drives a plug in hybrid into London - no charging near where they work and when they do get to one it is invariably taken. The alternative doesn't work yet....

My 3.0 petrol doesn't get additional charges if I drive it in, nor do any of the multitude of super cars or limos....
