Fuel and exhaust
Cover the following highlighted changes using the testers manual and the black lined criteria:
- Catalytic converter missing
- Fuel pipe or hose excessively damaged or chafed Gas leak confirmed by Leak Detection product (conforming to BS EN 14291-2004)
- Low emission diesel procedure
- Diesels after 1st July 2008 (1.5m-1) turbo and non turbo
*Note that unlike previous years where a vehicle may still pass the mot, where the cat is removed, provided the emissions still pass  now it is a straight fail regardless of metered test results

What emissions are tested on a diesel? I thought it was solely a smoke test?

Trouble for the Darkside!

Was frantically looking up prices for a new system, can sit back and relax in the knowledge that my enviromentally unfriendly side exit de-cat is legal for another year, have dodged Boris and his LEZ and hopefully dodged the mot changes

No sorry it not anything to do with diesels at all any age


"On vehicles that qualify for a full cat emissions test, check the presence of the catalytic converter"

That quote is out of the new test manual
Diesels dont have cat emmision tests

I was wondering what some previous posters were reading when they stated that it was O.K. for pre- 1st July 2008 to have the cat removed.

Bit of whistling in the dark.

Will it still be O.K., I wonder, to have a system made with a bulge, (but straight through), that looks like a cat? Surely the tester isn't going to bung a camera up the exhaust.
