Diesel engines are known to have good fuel economy that makes them to be the ideal source of power when it comes to mining, transportation, excavation, drilling and even for domestic use. The increase use of diesel engines has however introduced the need to pay attention to the NOx and Diesel Particulate Matter (DPM) Emissions emitted from the exhaust tail-pipe. DPM mostly consists of carbonaceous soot and a volatile organic fraction (VOF) of hydrocarbons that have condensed on the soot. Studies show that these emissions are a major pollutant linked with acute health ef-fects. This study discusses the measurement and analysis of DPM from a diesel vehicle in real world driving operations. The vehicle is in the Euro 5 vehicle classifications and was driven under a specified route and specified driving conditions for the urban, rural and motorway in simulating the real driving emissions (RDE) using Portable Emission Measurement System (PEMS). Furthermore, this investigation provides the particle mass (PM) and particle number (PN) in rural driving condition. It was found that PM and PN both remains below the limits of Euro 5b and Euro 6 for complete rural journey. However, the particles number during the cold is found to be higher than the standard level.
