MOTORISTS are being "misled and confused" by claims that all diesel cars are dirty, it is claimed.

A Jaguar Land Rover study says the car-buying public don't know the facts about current diesel engines.

While the study can be accused of serving an industry view, the company's UK managing director, Jeremy Hicks, claims half the motorists surveyed think road transport is most responsible for urban pollution.

That is not true, he says, claiming business and homes produce more than half the particulates polluting urban areas.

And 50pc-plus drivers don't know what "Euro 6" standards means (toughest emissions regulations to date).
