Real-life Emission Measurement of Light Duty Trucks with CNG, Diesel and Gasoline Engines 2005-01-3445
The goal of this project was to determine the exhaust mass emissions of light duty trucks (LDT) with three different engine concepts under real world conditions in the urban area of Vienna. Therefore three identical GM Opel Combo LDT with 1.6 liter monovalent CNG S.I. engine, 1.7 liter common rail turbo charged diesel engine and 1.4 liter Ecotec gasoline S.I. engine were tested systematically on representative urban routes and in parcel service. All engines corresponded to the new Euro IV emission standard and were within the same power range.
