What is a BS6 ready engine?
BS6 ready is different from the BS6 compliant engine. A BS6 ready engine can have two justifications.

- The engine form manufacture that can run on BS6 fuel but the emissions aren’t according to new norms. Almost all the BS4 vehicles on Indian roads can run on BS6 fuel. The lubricating quality of the new fuel is similar to BS4 fuel.
Some times this can get really confusing and many manufacturers take advantage of the same.
