The diesel scandal is known throughout Germany - even worldwide. In the diesel engines of numerous manufacturers such as VW, Audi, Mercedes or Porsche there are illegal shutdown devices that manipulate the exhaust gas cleaning system. Now the next scandal looms: A defeat device has also been found in an Audi gasoline engine.

An appraiser had one for a lawsuit Audi Q5 TFSI 2.0 the emission standard Euro 6 from the year of construction 2015 was examined. He discovered that the gasoline engine only completely cleans the exhaust gases when the steering wheel is not moved or is only slightly moved. This is of course extremely rare in normal driving practice.

Audi Q5 exceeded manufacturer specifications by 300 percent

When the appraiser drove the Audi Q5 as if on the road and made strong steering movements, the gasoline engine simply switched off the emission control. This means: The exhaust gases were emitted with a very high proportion of harmful nitrogen oxides and carbon monoxide. In the test, the Audi Q5 exceeded the legal limit for nitrogen oxides by 24 percent and the permitted emission value for carbon monoxide by 60 percent. Overall, the gasoline engine exceeded the manufacturer's specifications from Audi by 300 percent. With these values ​​the Audi should not have been approved at all.

The reason is a defeat device that Steering angle detection is called. Based on the steering movements, the Audi recognizes whether it is on a street or in the laboratory. For the registration authorities, it cleans the exhaust gases according to regulations, but no longer on the road. This technology is jointly responsible for driving bans that are threatening or are being implemented in numerous cities and metropolitan areas.

Cycle detection in gasoline engines occupied

A VW-internal document, which is available to the transmitter SWR, proves that shutdown devices are active not only in diesel vehicles but also in gasoline vehicles. Lawyers from the parent company of Audi - Volkswagen AG - write in an internal evaluation that so-called "cycle-related data" is used in gasoline engines with the AL 551 automatic transmission. This is another word for cycle detection or shutdown device. The document states that the emission control is only activated when the steering angle is less than 15 degrees - as is usual in test situations - but "almost never" in normal traffic on the road.

Neither the Federal Ministry of Transport nor the Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA) was aware of that either Disconnect devices installed in vehicles with petrol engines are. The VW lawyers also knew this, who wrote in their assessment that the "concrete steering angle detection" was "not known to the authorities". Audi did not want to comment on the report and the internal papers when asked by the SWR.
