ASM 2525/CURB IDLE TAILPIPE EMISSIONS INSPECTION

June 9/09, odometer at 24,619 km.

Emission ... Limit / Reading @40km/h ...
Limit / READING @ idle

HC ppm ........ 66 / 10 ...................150 / 10
CO % ........ 0.37 / 0.0 .................
0.7 / 0.0
NO ppm ....... 505 / 1 .................... na / na
RPM ............ 2621 ....................... 823

Dilution ... 14.60 / 14.70 (don't know what this is) EDIT: for definition, see post #18.

Dec. 12/07, odometer at 14,481 km.

Emission ... Limit / Reading @40km/h ...
Limit / READING @ idle

HC ppm ........ 66 / 21 ...................150 / 6

Aug 24/05, odometer at 2,460 km.


Emission ... Limit / Reading @40km/h ... Limit / READING @ idle

HC ppm ........ 66 / 9 ....................150 / 8
CO % ........ 0.37 / 0.00 ................
0.7 / 0.00
NO ppm ....... 505 / 53 ................... na / na

So what does it say? Some emissions are up, some are down. The worst 2007 increase (HC ppm @ 40 km/h) is now @ 32% of its max. allowable.
