Me too. I have a German car magazine that publishes all the drivetrain options. It publishes liters / 100km and their C02 output, so I can do some more ratio testing. I am guessing that the constant would be different for diesels or cars that have unique emission control strategies (i.e. MBenz Bluetec urea solution for diesels).

Whooops! I did it again. I don't have a diesel. I better go find that German magazine and do some more ratios.
