    1.9 sri 5 door 150bhp emmissions???

    Hey everyone, been a while since i posted on here.

    I have a bit of concern about my motor, i have been looking at reviews etc about my car and insurance groups and have noticed a discrepancy.

    My car is registered as a 1.9 cdti (ti in red on back of car) 150ps on my log book, however, my co2 emmissions are 157 g/km when all of the reviews and specs for my car say it should be 149 g/km.

    Can you guys maybe enlighten me or share your emissions?
    My concern is simple, is my car really a 150bhp or the 120bhp, or has the DVLA got it wrong and i'm paying higher tax then i should be????

    Thanks for any replies, and maybe, just maybe, others may not of noticed this.....

    I'm not 100% on this, but maybe the figures on paper relate to when the car leaves the factory, but as it ages it becomes less efficient. Also, I would imagine emissions, being rated in g/km, would vary depending on how each kilometre is driven. What I mean is somebody who drives that kilometre at a steady 55mph will pump out less crap than somebody who does it at 90mph.

    Do you follow? I can't describe it that well with a keyboard!

    And obviously the people who test the vehicles and establish the official data are trained to get the best figures - i.e low emissions figures and a high mpg rating. They will achieve these figures in optimal conditions. How often gave you ever driven your 150bhp astra in 'optimal' conditions?!

    Yours is in the 157 band then/

    If it says on your log book 150 it is a 150
