CO2 emissions for older cars
by Simon at 2008-03-19 12:47:27 (Forum::Public::Transport)
I've been wondering for a while how much CO2 my car (a ten year old MGF which does only about 3000 miles a year) puts out, and have now discovered the answer.
http://www.smmt.co.uk/co2/co2search.cfm is the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders online tool that has the figures for CO2 emissions from older cars.

Turns out my MGF puts out 190g/km which equates to roughly 1 metric tonne of CO2 per year given the mileage it does.

Obviously, 190g/km can't be precise since it'll depend on the state of the engine, driving style and so on but it's a useful datum to start from.

How do others fare on an annual basis?
