Petrol consumption and my Nissan Qashqai

My system has alerted me that the Nissan Qashqai 1.5 dCi 8v (110bhp) N-Vision Hatchback 5dr 1461cc Diesel Manual has changed today so I update my website and post here for the benefit of customers. No one else bothers with this stuff. I treat you like adult, not idiot.

These days, in UK identity theft is common (not problem in China; we all look same, heheh), money laundering is common, and so is fraud. To proctect themselves, and you, against these problems the finance companies like lots of ID. There are many protecting regulations. Photographic and signature proving (new driving licence or passport), and address proving (recent 90 day or less old utility bill showing your name and address). A company may want to submit a VAT return (proof of trading) or latest signed accounts, and anyone can supply a current bank statement (you can blot out the figures if you are sensitive).

On new cars for example, average CO2 has been cut by more than 10 per cent in six years. Improvements at manufacturing sites have been more significant. Published in September, the SMMT’s seventh annual sustainability report showed that average energy used � and CO2 emitted – to produce each vehicle in the UK has been halved in just four years.

Having got all the info for the Nissan Qashqai Diesel Manual, I can publish the new CO2 figure: 99g/km. This will change across the different models of this particular car, they are all a bit different.

My Nissan Qashqai 1.5 dCi 8v (110bhp) N-Vision Hatchback 5dr 1461cc Diesel Manual gearbox is only £254.99 inc VAT per month with 3 months initial payment, followed by 35 payments on direct debit. Business customers, make sure you deduct the VAT, when making decisions. As I can’t tell what type of customer you are (business or private), I can’t display the price any other way but to show VAT seperately (sorry!).

NissanThis price on my Nissan Qashqai includes full road tax for the length of the contract, on all of my cars and vans! Free delivery to your home or work and free collection from you at the end! £254.99 inc VAT per month is based on you driving 10,000 miles per annum, but higher mileages are usually available at a small extra cost. If you go over the allocated miles, you can pay a small excess mileage charge, usually between 3p and 15p per mile.

One of my best awards was the 2008 best non-franchise environmentalist, awarded by Automotive Management. The web is fickle, I have noticed LINGsCARS.com is the ONLY new car supplier to display and promote environmental info for ALL new cars, on the web! My website won “BEST non-franchised WEBSITE 2007” in the Automotive Management Awards.

Use higher gears, as soon as traffic conditions allow.

I get tired of typing out these comments, but… here’s one.

Biofuels also offer a way to reduce vehicles’ impacts on climate change. The fuels are not entirely CO2 neutral because of the energy used to grow and process crops, but they can offer substantial CO2 savings over fossil petrol and diesel. Today most biofuels are sold in a blends of up to 5% with fossil petrol and diesel . These are suitable for use in all vehicles. Fuel standards may be extended in the future to allow more than 5% if it is concluded that this is compatible with existing vehicles. Some manufacturers offer ‘flexi-fuel’ vehicles that can run on bioethanol blends up to E85 – a blend of 85% bioethanol and 15% petrol, as well as fossil petrol.

Many customer letters contain really funny stuff. It’s unusual to receive a very dry one. However, I publish them all. Here is a letter from James O’Malley. It was sent to me quite a while ago!

James says…
car“Ling was cheaper than the two other “big” companies I checked her against. So I got exactly what I wanted (new Mazda MX-5) on the day I expected it at the lowest price. Her delivering dealer was excellent. But the reason I recommend her is her personal service. Ling answered emails on the same day, I was able to speak directly to her and if I left a message, she rang me back within 15 minutes. I had to chase the big companies I contacted. Personal service at the lowest price – PERFECT.”

Mazda MX-5Editor Note: James, I wonder who the “big” companies were that you contacted? They will certainly have higher overheads than me, guaranteed. That is why prices are higher, they want to to pay for their inefficiency. As I say again and again, I find most service in the motor industry quite crap. I have to deal with some of the idiots, and it drives me mad. They employ (mainly white, English, out of interest – significant?) numbskull employees who don’t seem to care. As I said to Ross McLaren, below, I seem to be brilliant because you compare me with the industry average. And that average is quite shit, frankly. Is this too strong a reply? Well – I just tell the truth. Thanks for lovely letter, enjoy MX-5, a perfect car I think (even though it’s Japanese :), hehe) – Ling

Hydrocarbon results for the Nissan Qashqai have changed

The Nissan Qashqai 1.5 dCi 8v (110bhp) N-Vision Hatchback 5dr 1461cc Diesel Manual has new environmental information today. I have updated! Pay attention, you are too slow 🙂

Environmental Data

As a bonus to add to your lower motoring costs, you will get every subsequent year’s road tax sent to you free of charge, saving you up to £385 per year, or £1,155 on a 3-year contract!

Environmental Data

Carbon dioxide is a colorless gas which, when inhaled at high concentrations (a dangerous activity because of the associated asphyxiation risk), produces a sour taste in the mouth and a stinging sensation in the nose and throat. These effects result from the gas dissolving in the mucous membranes and saliva, forming a weak solution of carbonic acid. You may notice this sensation if you attempt to stifle a burp after drinking a carbonated drink. Burp! Ooooops!

Working it out from the tables, the CO2 is just 99g/km for the Nissan Qashqai Diesel Manual. There are a few cars in this range, so different specs will give slightly different CO2 values.

The other pollutants from petrol, diesel and alternative fuel engines are mainly Carbon Monoxide, Oxides of Nitrogen, un-burnt Hydrocarbons and fine particles. The first three are gases and are invisible. Fine particles are usually invisible although in certain operating conditions diesels will produce visible particles, appearing as smoke. Petrol engines will also produce visible particles if they are burning engine oil or running rich, for example, following a cold start. Unlike CO2, emissions of these pollutants are not directly linked to fuel consumption. Pollutant levels are more dependant on vehicle technology and the state of maintenance of the vehicle.

Making the Mercedes C-Class Saloon greener

Making your car greener is important, so it is nice when you can do it just by looking at the new Mercedes C-Class Saloon 2.1 CDi 16v (170bhp) C220d (9G) AMG Line Saloon 4dr 2143cc Diesel Automatic. The CO2 values have changed, making it more attractive.

Sometimes you must resign yourself to fact that dealer will look after a retail customer first. Your delivery might be slightly delayed because they are fussing over a damn retail customer (paying �1000’s more than you), and you have to learn to relax. Most times these delays never happen, but sometimes they do, so I’m just preparing your brain and giving you tip.

Martin Callanan (Euro MP for the North East Region) said “Ling and her unique website LINGsCARS.com displays environmental information in a way that leads the UK motor industry. Following my discussions with her about greening the business, Ling has grasped the environmental nettle and is giving UK car buyers comprehensive environmental data on all new cars for sale in the UK to enable them to make an informed choice. LINGsCARS.com gives a fantastic amount of green information on her new cars, which the rest of the UK motor industry would do well to emulate. Using the internet is already the most energy efficient way of researching and buying a new car, so well done Ling for taking the personal responsibility to push this carbon data to the top of her agenda and to push environmental awareness a big step further”

I have taken a typical model of this car from my website – the Mercedes C-Class Saloon Diesel Automatic. For this car, the CO2 is now just 117g/km. Other trim levels might differ slightly.

My Mercedes C-Class Saloon 2.1 CDi 16v (170bhp) C220d (9G) AMG Line Saloon 4dr 2143cc Diesel Automatic gearbox is only £372.72 inc VAT per month with 3 months initial payment, followed by 35 payments on direct debit.

Switch off – sitting stationary is zero miles per gallon, switch off the engine whenever it is safe to do so.

Here is a comment about my website (I have disguised the email address)

Ling, I found your site because you are a Googlewhack!!! If you enter the words “antidisestablishmentarianism multipla” you are the only site that is found!! I am, however, glad I found you because it is a mad site!!! I think you should get in touch with Dave Gorman to tell him you are a Googlewhack!

Because of the need to maintain strict comparability of results achieved by the standard tests they cannot be fully representative of real life driving conditions. Firstly, it is obviously not practicable to test each individual new car; thus only one production car is tested as being representative of the model and may therefore produce a better or worse result than another similar vehicle. Secondly, there are infinite variations in driving styles and in road, car and weather conditions, all of which can have a bearing on the results achieved. For these reasons the fuel consumption achieved on the road will not necessarily be the same as the official test results.
