Not a scientific test, but points out the fact that small engines, when strained, pollute above their lab ratings.

I was just thinking about posting this incident and I saw your post. :lol

It was actually a M3, a 4.0L, V8 making more than 400bhp.
And yes it did give a higher rating than the Prius.
The conclusion was that it's all about the way you drive and not what you drive.

Link to the same.
