I saw this on the BBC and thought it interesting:

Old banger v diesel: Which is more toxic? - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-41640746

Kind of long winded, but explains a lot.

Saw it as well.

They need to rewrite it because the conclusion and the data is what is interesting.

Alternatively, you can just go to the data directly here:

One thing i can say for certain is that the machine they currently measure emissions with in the annual (from Yr 3 or after 1 year for Private Hire vehicles in London) MOT is unable to register anything from the tailpipe on a Euro 6 Diesel with DPF and AdBlue.

I think TFL are using the Data from these tests.

Interestingly the Jaguar XJ 3.0D is a D and a Mercedes S Class 3.0D is an E.

So a 23yo gas vehicle produces more emissions than a modern diesel? Whodathunkit.
