Got my Mitsubishi Pajero mini
I still have my little Mitsubishi Pajero Mini, built in 1999.
I live in London, and from October 2021 they will expand the ULEZ (Ultra Low Emissions Zone) to the North and South Circular roads.
This will include where I live.
A quick look on Transport For London's web site tells me that my Pajero will not meet the ULEZ standards.
However, this is purely based on its age, they have no actual emissions figures for this car, because it is a private import.
I wonder if there is any information available online that would tell me what this car's emissions are "supposed to be"?
If it is way "dirtier" than the ULEZ standard (Euro 4 for petrol cars) then I guess I may have to sell it. But if I find out that, at least when it was new, its emissions were given as within the Euro 4 standard, then it may be worth me providing this information to the powers that be, and even paying for a proper test, to see if I can get it exempted.
Any help or advice, or suggestions, very gratefully received!
Also, does anyone else own a Kei car and live within or drive within the ULEZ zone and if so, what is the situation with your vehicle?
Unfortunately, unless your car model was tested for compliance to Euro4 & up by the manufacturer it will not meet ULEZ requirements. To be perfectly honest, even if your car was to emit less than the average Euro4 car it would still be unlikly to be acceptable as Euro compliance goes beyond just measuring the amount of gases out of the tail pipe but also is about how the car monitors it. For example cars made before 2001 or so did not use to have oxygen sensor after the catalytic converter, as monitoring the efficiency of the cat wasn't a requirement untill then...
Sorry that i don't have any good new to offer.
