FUEL CONSUMPTIONCar manufacturers have undoubtedly responded positively to the pressure from the worldwide environmental lobby by creating far more efficient and less polluting engines in recent years. The internal combustion engine has long been a major environmental concern, responsible for belching tons of carbon and other noxious gases into our atmosphere every year.
However, the latest generation of diesel engines routinely deliver fifty plus MPG with a far lower carbon footprint than thought possible only a few years ago. And they achieve this without compromising performance.
Although someway behind diesels in terms of economy, petrol engines too are becoming more economical and less polluting. For the consumer this means lower costs of fuel and car tax (which is currently free for cars producing less than 100grams CO2 per kilometre driven).
