With the introduction of Euro 6 (European Union emission standards), further efforts are being made to reduce levels of harmful pollutants in exhausts, both in petrol and diesel vehicles. These pollutants include nitrogen oxide (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO), hydrocarbons (THC and NMHC) and particulate matter (PM).
In the above tests, the 2005 Mercedes Benz was Euro 4 before the installation of the magnets and Euro 5 after the installation. The 2018 Peugeot was Euro 6 before and remained Euro 6 after the installation of the magnets, but saw a remarkable improvement in toxic gas emissions on a new car.
