Other countries, most notably Australia, Austria, Belgium, France, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Netherlands, Norway, South Korea and Portugal, all use a much lower BAC level for a driver to be considered impaired — they use 0.05%. In Japan, any driver with a BAC of 0.03% is considered intoxicated. The standard is even tougher in Russia and China, where they use 0.02%. Some countries have zero tolerance when drivers are influenced by either alcohol or drugs: any BAC above .00 will result in an arrest in Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Bangladesh, and Saudi Arabia.

CRDI (Common Rail Direct Injection)

CRDi stands for Common Rail Direct Injection meaning, direct injection of the fuel into the cylinders of a diesel engine via a single, common line, called the common rail which is connected to all the fuel injectors.

     Whereas ordinary diesel direct fuel-injection systems have to build up pressure anew for each and every injection cycle, the new common rail (line) engines maintain constant pressure regardless of the injection sequence. This pressure then remains permanently available throughout the fuel line. The engine's electronic timing regulates injection pressure according to engine speed and load. The electronic control unit (ECU) modifies injection pressure precisely and as needed, based on data obtained from sensors on the cam and crankshafts. In other words, compression and injection occur independently of each other. This technique allows fuel to be injected as needed, saving fuel and lowering emissions.
