Automotive engineering has greater difficulty in adhering to tighter environmental standards while still meeting customer demands. CONCAWE, Brussels, Belgium, has studied this complex dilemma. Vehicle emissions have been reduced by sophisticated engine t echnology, e.g., injection pumps, EGR, traps, catalysts, etc. However, consumers are demanding higher performance levels and comforts – air conditioning, high maximum speed and power – that increase exhaust and CO2 emissions (Fig. 2). Fig. 2. Customer demands conflict with targeted vehicle emission reductions. Testing two fuel quality generations on varying engine technology showed that engine technology has a gre
