Petrol engines to get GPF from June 2018
« on: February 13, 2018, 08:18:11 PM »
Just picked this up from the Škoda Forum.

All new petrol vehicles sold from June 2018 will need to have Gasoline Particulate Filters fitted under the latest Euro 6d regulations!  It is no longer just diesels that have to worry about these devices.

They are needed because modern petrol engines making use of direct injection are much ‘dirtier’ than those using indirect injection - in some cases by a factor of 10,000!

It also means a reduction in engine power as well - for example the VW 280bhp petrol engine drops to 272bhp in the summer.

What seems to be unclear from the comments is what happens to unregistered dealer stock cars after that date?  Commentators have pointed at new registrations rather than new builds.  I can understand it being a ‘built after date......’ but some cars remain unsold for months.  Are Dealers going to pre-reg anything bought speculatively by them, or to meet their quota numbers?

Most manufactures have already started fitting them to meet emissions regs.?

So, more regulations to devalue current cars. And they wonder why new car registrations are in decline.
