Out of curiosity...

Is it legal to swap a gasoline engine out for a diesel engine in the state of PENNSYLVANIA.....or any other state? I dont see the reason why not, but the worlds a funny place

Also, is there a deal with VIN # changing, and talking to insurance companies for any reason?

Thanks guys

PA In legal terms

Yes, but you must build an exact clone of a vehicle offered from the factory in your vehicle year and it must have all of the approved emissions as offered for your year and model in working order. The same applies in going from diesel to gasoline.

Always remember it is your responsibility to confirm what you plan on doing with your "enhanced" vehicle inspection/emissions station before you start any conversion. They will perform the final inspection of your modification for your new title application; PA MV-426B.

Some info on "modified" at:

Things are difficult in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. What county do you live in? "Discretion is the better part of valor". Wear your rainbow colored "Save the Whale" teeshirt and go down to the local DMV and find out if you can get an experimental vehicle title for a hybrid that uses renewable resource fuel - biodiesel, rapeseed etc. Bob has a list of requirements and an application for that. Get back here after you do some legwork and we'll help you with the wording. I never confirmed it, but was once told that these titles are available. Used to be an "Employe" of the Commonwealth. ;)

Find the "gray area" and sell them an experimental vehicle that gets better mileage and pollutes less, and promotes minority business in underprivileged economically depressed areas. Find out who has the power and cultivate them. On and on...
