CO2 car emissions testing

Where can I get CO2 car testing done? I would like to know how many grams of CO2 is emitted per km. Thanks.

Re: CO2 car emissions testing

Your model will be rated by the manufacturer. I assume given the time of year that you're being charged the annual fee based on CO2 output now?

Doing your own testing won't change this.

If you're wanting to have the exhaust check done, any garage will do this.

Re: CO2 car emissions testing

That depends fully on how and how fast you drive.

Just measure your average fuel consumption over a 1000 km and you can do a fairly accurate calculation of the co2 emission.

Will a garage be able to give me a grams per km measurement? Thanks.

Are you from the US by any chance and what are you trying to achieve exactly ?

NO - the garage can not give you co2 per km . The manufacturer issues that and the kanton then determines your "naughty dirty car" emission charge based on that figure.

SWMBO has a yaris and that pays the highest amount in BS, 100chf for the year.
