you don't say what year your diesel is but the web site figure will be for the latest "new" model which may be slightly different

just checked the 2nd link and come up with the following and it appears that the 154g CO2 figure is correct

I've just done the same check for the 2009 2.0L diesel both pre & post the 2009¼ MY and with & without DPF in both Man & Auto and it does give 149g CO2

My 2004 C-Max is £125 tax pa, indicating it's less than 150 g/km. I expect the facelift added a bit of weight or an update to gear ratios or engine management that pushed it up a bit. I expect when the implications of this were realised for car tax, a frantic email was sent from Ford UK to the factory to tweak things again, and the car was presumably re-certified - even a change of tyres might have made a tangible difference.

Off-topic, I'm hoping the new C-max (due next year now I think) will be significantly lower - to be honest the regulatory stick may mean it has to. I recall seeing on the internet (so is therefore 100% true!) of the 1.6TDCi going up to 128bhp, which, if it gets a 6spd box and the car loses a bit of weight might make it the engine of choice for anyone concerned about either their wallet or the poor state of the planet.

The mk2 was supposed to have a new oil in the gearbox to reduce friction,therefore helping reduce imissions.
Lots of places are quoting 149co2 for ALL 2.0 TDCI`s with a manual so if people are looking for a C-Max from May 07 to April 08,check the reg doc before you buy.
