How to Reduce Carbon Emissions to Pass the NCT in Ireland.

The National Car Test
(Irish: An tSeirbhís Náisiúnta Tástála Carranna; abbreviated NCT) is a roadworthiness test, which all cars in Ireland must undergo.

What to Do if You Have Failed on Emissions?
If you failed the NCT Emissions test you should buy a 1 litre bottle of Dipetane. Drive your car for 1 to 2 days and then take a re-test. Most Motorists shoud pass on the 2nd attempt.

My car failed the NCT on the first test...
“My car failed the NCT on the first test. I had heard about Dipetane and decided to see if it would solve my emission problem and help me to pass on the re-test.
I was amazed at the results which completely surpassed my expectations.
The CO2 level was 96% below the pass level on low idle and 90% below on high idle.
I flew past the re-test and am using Dipetane regularly since.
As a bonus I am getting a better mileage of around 10% as well which is welcome with the continuous increase in petrol charges”.

My car failed the NCT on emissions...
“My car had failed the NCT with a smoke emission level of 5.25. It is a fuel injected Saab turbo diesel 9-3. I got a recommendation to try Dipetane and I used it for a month and then did a re-test. It was very easy to use as the bottle has clear instructions on how much to add each time I filled the tank. When the car was tested again the emission level for C02 was 1.9. This was well below the standard of 3.0 and way below my original fail level of 5.25.
I am delighted with it and it saved me money since I never had to bring the car to my garage. It is now driving better and definitely achieving improved fuel consumption. I intend to continue using Dipetane on a regular basis as in addition to the fuel savings (I estimate around 10%) I understand that it will also help prolong the engine life of the car”.

Having no Cat. Converter, I worried about failing the NCT...
“The car has no catalytic converter so I was worried about failing the NCT emissions pass level of 4.5% CO2. I used Dipetane before the test and was very pleased to see that it passed with flying colours having a CO2 emission level of 0% vs 4.5% required to passand and a HC level of 20ppm vs a pass level of 1,000ppm. Excellent results for a 27 year old car with over 60,000 miles on the clock”.

I used Dipetane to ensure I would pass the NCT...
“I used Dipetane to ensure I would pass the NCT. my car had been emitting smoke for a few weeks before I started using Dipetane so I was worried about failing the emissions test. I used Dipetane for a month before the test and was delighted with the result which showed a CO level of 0.26% comparedto a failure limiot of 0.50% – around 50% below the fail level. I intend using Dipetane from now on as I believe I can also get an increase in fuel efficiency of close to 10%”.
