Paul, thank you for an interesting read:

They hadn't tested NOx emissions from diesel cars! Rather, they were 
woken up by being told of anomalous results found in a university study.

{These findings stemmed from a study on regional emissions discrepancies 
commissioned in 2014 by the International Council on Clean 
(ICCT) summing up the data from three different sources on 15 vehicles. 
Among the research groups was a group of five scientists at West 
Virginia University 
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/West_Virginia_University>, who detected 
additional emissions during live road tests on two out of three diesel 
cars. ICCT also purchased data from two other sources. They provided 
their findings to the California Air Resources Board 
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_Air_Resources_Board> in May
