    CO2 Production of Golf TDI 1.9

    Looking at site it states that the TDI diesel which gets 5.5l to 100km produces 145g/km. This mileage is equvalent to 42 mpg, mine gets a year round average of 47 mpg, which I compute at 210 g/mi of CO2. This is quite low compared to gasoline engines CO2 production.
