The DIESEL DEBATE: a New Tool for NFDA Members to Educate ConsumersBack

With the confusion and media speculation surrounding diesel and emissions, the NFDA and its members are working hard to help consumers understand the whole debate.

The NFDA has produced a folding leaflet which members can use to help their customers understand the whole ‘diesel debate’. The aim of the leaflet is to clarify confusion that surround the issue.

The leaflet analyses the different types of pollutants including NOx, CO2 and particulates, and shows from what sources these derive.  The role of diesel is examined with a clear differentiation between old diesel and modern Euro 6 and the different impact they have on air pollution.  It demonstrates how modern Euro 6 diesel cars cannot be compared to older diesel, as they emit around half of the NOx and a fifth of the particulates of diesel cars built before 2009. It highlights also that cars are not the biggest contributors to air pollution, other major ones include: industry, trains, gas boilers and many other types of machinery.

Although recent negative media coverage has been affecting consumer confidence in diesel, the leaflet highlights that there are currently no Government plans to change diesel taxation in a way that would punish retrospectively motorists who own a diesel car.

NFDA members will use the leaflet to clarify the whole diesel debate and help consumers find the car that most suits their driving habits.  Depending on the driver’s behaviour and type of commute and journeys, modern diesel vehicles can be the most efficient option.

The leaflet is available for download in PDF format on the NFDA website, from:

Please note, when you print the leaflet you must select ‘flip the page on the short edge’ so that the leaflet can be folded correctly.
