What does Euro 6 mean and why should I care?

Posted by Becca Knight on March 21, 2019

If you’ve heard any of the latest automotive industry buzzwords you’ll know there’s one hot topic today. If it’s not the phrase ‘emission scandal’ then it’ll be ‘emissions regulations’. With so much media & public attention on a vehicle’s emissions standards, this issue needs to be understood by any diesel garage or workshop worth their salt. In order to offer the best services for customers and to thrive in this changing diesel landscape, then it is important to understand what is meant by ‘Euro 6’ and why it matters to all workshops even if they aren’t in the EU.

Posted by Becca Knight on February 02, 2018

These changes aren’t just for the passenger car either; they affect several classes of vehicle up to a class 7. It now makes sense for operators of heavy duty fleets to look at preventative maintenance as their most effective DPF strategy.
