Report broadcast at JT 20h TF1 of the November 15 2005.
It concerns a car R21 diesel-powered breakwater doped according to the pantone assembly. In a general way it is a good report. Thank you Kevin (and TF1)! (if you pass on this site, come take a ride on the forum )
Some comments Christophe Martz on comments of this story:
- CO2, value 0,1% very unlikely and probably distorted by a dilution of exhaust gases by steam or a device error analysis. Indeed the CO2 can not be measured directly, but not deducting O2 rate by knowing the burned fuel. In fact, to achieve such a value, it would almost consume more diesel.
- Nox: value probably suitable. I never have done analysis on Nox. Water injection is an anti-Nox known method.
- HC: very probably wrong. too low in origin to be correct. The use of unburned gasoline analyzer could explain this error. HC simply not being measured (measurable?) On a diesel engine: this analysis is offset by a smoke opacity test.
