Germany's Transport Ministry said Sunday there was no fresh news in a Bild am Sonntag report that Volkswagen engineers told investigators certain petrol engines in VW, Audi and Porsche vehicles can be used to manipulate emissions tests.VW in 2015 admitted that around 36,000 petrol-fuelled cars were also being tested for excessive emissions.VW used software to detect when a car was being subjected to a regulatory emissions measurement test, and throttled back the engines during the test cycle, masking excessive pollution.When a car engine was being accelerated and gears changed, VW's onboard software would check whether the steering wheel was also being used.
