Australian diesels: not so squeaky clean...
Unfortunately, this article states that these technologies have not been adopted as of yet in Australia as they have been in Europe and in the U.S. The sulfur content in Australian diesel fuel also is of concern. Until the government there mandates changes in the emissions requirements from diesel engines, manufacturers are not as likely to install the expensive after-treatment devices and filters that they already use in Europe and America. As the article states, some manufacturers have stepped up the the plate, so the speak, but not all. Never having been in Australia, I can't really add any personal experience here, maybe a reader can give some insight into what is happening in Australia at the present to change the current state of diesel affairs.
