In order to do the same, the government has introduced BS6 emission norms. These environment-friendly regulations will be implemented from the 1st of April this year.

It is necessary for companies to prepare for tough BS6 emission standards. In order to do so, they have worked hard upon the powertrain. These standards include reducing the harmful gases from the vehicle exhaust and reducing sulfur content in diesel fuel.

What is a BS6 ready engine?

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

    • The automotive company has the technology for building an engine running on BS6 fuel and follows BS6 emission norms. They are yet to be manufactured and launched on road.
    • 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.

What is a BS6 compliant engine?

The production vehicles running on the road with BS6 compliant engine run on BS6 fuel. These vehicles produce controlled exhaust gases according to BS6 compliant emission norms.

There are just a few cars in India which are BS6 compliant. There is no BS6 compliant vehicle with BS6 compliant diesel engine as the engine is cable of running only on BS6 Diesel fuel.
