    engine needs to be up to normal operating temp for the emmissions test, id say 30 mins is a bit excessive - 10-15mins would murder it :thumb:

    If it is a bit smokey and you are worried about passing MOT an old trick we used to use with oldish Landrovers was to put a bit of petrol in the tank!

    warm it up well and keep the revs up....use a lower gear than usual ....to clear as much crap from the system as possible.

    i never go above 3rd in the mile or so to the test station from my house.....3rd gear and 30mph is not a problem.
