“These figures confirm the scale of the deception the British public has faced, so we now need the Government to urgently set out a timetable for action so that consumers can get redress.

Notes to editors:
As part of our new campaign Come Clean On Fuel Claims we want:
- All car manufacturers to announce whether their emissions and fuel economy tests have been manipulated within the next seven days;
- The Government must immediately publish a timetable for a genuinely independent investigation and ensure any consumers found to be affected can get easy access to redress; and
- The European Commission must announce how they will bring forward new tests with full and proper independent oversight by the end of the year.
