Consumption and emissions
Consumption and emissions. What's that?
The required fuel quantity depends on the combustion engine's setup, vehicle size and weight as well as the driving style. The higher the consumption, the higher the carbon dioxide emissions. CO2 emissions are directly related to the amount of burnt fuel – the higher the consumption, the higher the carbon dioxide emissions. Many convenience and safety functions directly influence the fuel consumption.
Consumed amounts and how cleanly fuel is burnt.
Additional exhaust system components are relevant in addition to CO2 emissions. In particular NOx (nitrogen oxide) as well as soot particle emissions that are taken into account when analysing modern, direct-injection diesel and petrol engines are affected. In this process, a differentiation is made between the consumed amount (CO2 emissions) and how cleanly the fuel is burnt (NOx, particulate).
