According to this organization Opel Zafira engine 1.6 CDTi exceeds up to 17 times the established limits of emissions of NOx. The DUH has been detected, according to their study, not detailed, that difference doing tests with the front wheels in movement, while with the two axes in motion, had also, supposedly, some emissions of NOx between 2 and 4 times higher.
