Omnitek’s new 420HP 13-liter natural gas engine exceeds Euro 6 standard

I bet the engine beats EURO 6 by a margin without cheating needed and over the lifetime of the truck. A problem of diesel is that even if a brand new engine would theoretically comply with EURO 6 (which they don’t as we know), they start to sot up from the first kilometer which means that they become worse and worse until maintenance. I would love to see two trucks, one NG and the other diesel run side by side for several thousand km and all emissions measured every km to tally up. I bet the result would be horrible for diesel.
