Diesel is not cleaner than gasoline

Diesel vehicles consume less fuel than the gasoline ones but emit more nitrogen oxide. What about particulate matter? Are the new diesel engines cleaner than the older ones? Even if we leave the frauds in connection with the Dieselgate scandal, we can see that 90% of the fine particles emitted are ultrafine particles. These are even more dangerous than PM 2.5 and PM 10, although they are not calculated in the Euro standard. Beware of the statements of the automotive industry!
