So all diesels produce sub-micron particulates, DPF-ed engines let out the same amount (or slightly more) as non-DPF-ed?

I read that the hotter your engine (or the hotter the exhaust) is running the less particulates it produces. Unsure whether the reduction is the same for all sizes, or whether only certain sizes are reduced. The price is more NOx.

What matters is where you're going, not how fast.
