White Towel Test Video Tells the Clean Diesel Story

October 20, 2014 – A new video shows what the team at Leonard Bus Sales has known for some time: today’s diesel engines run with near-zero emissions.

The video uses a test in which a white towel is placed over the exhaust pipe of three different buses produced over the past 15 years to show how much clean diesel technology has progressed over the years.

The results are amazing. It is one thing to hear that today’s clean-diesel buses are 20 times cleaner than buses made in 2003, but is another thing to see it for yourself. Check out the full video here.
