It's an interesting concept in itself; that countries stipulate a
standard for engines to reach before they can be sold into a highly
sophisticated market with high standards for testing and:

1: a major player can distort the tests

2: the tests don't relate closely to real use anyway

I haven't bought a new car so it hasn't affected my choice, so why
should a stove tested to any standard affect a consumer?
