Registering a post-1997 Diesel in VA

Has anyone register a diesel converted, post 1997, vehicle in VA? Any insight on how to get the waiver? If any.


I found this on VA DEQ webpage: http://www.deq.state.va.us/mobile/mobfaq.html#dmvnaei

The following vehicles require a Virginia Emissions Inspection PASS or WAIVER before DMV can complete the registration process. The requirements are categorized by fuel type:
  • Gasoline-powered passenger or property carrying vehicles with a model year that is less than 25 model years old before January 1 of the current calendar year and with a manufacturer's designated gross vehicle weight rating of 10,000 pounds or less
or,
  • Diesel-powered passenger or property carrying vehicles with a model year of 1997 or newer and with a manufacturer’s designated gross vehicle weight rating of 8,500 pounds or less
and,
  • Are registered in the following localities:
    • Counties of: Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, Prince William, and Stafford
    • Cities of: Alexandria, Fairfax, Falls Church, Manassas, and Manassas Park

Thanks,
P

Not to be a jerk, but have you called the DMV? Seems like something they can explain to you.

Robert Davis might know, try him at roav.org? He does a number of conversions. Doug might have some info here as well.

I know of one former rover owner that was able to get his d2 registered as having a high GVW, he was able to simply go into DMV and file the appropriate paperwork, but I tend to think that he was very lucky to get that through. I seem to remember that he used one out in Sterling.

Honestly, the ones in Richmond and Waynesboro have always been a breeze, but I do not live in NOVA.

Robert's conversions to date have been OBD 1 conversions. He's in Chesapeake Va and doesn't have to deal with the N.Va emissions issues. I haven't converted an obd2 truck but can tell you that 97 300tdi's had obd2 ports as part of the electronic egr mgmnt system so it would be easy to get a correct vintage 300 with wiring loom and the control box.

I was looking to get a 200. But if the 300 is the route to go... I'll start to read and research more on the subject.

Are you going to be at HH? We can talk some more off-line.

It's as if N. VA is another state. My local DMV here in central VA is in a grocery store and the folks there are very easy to deal with. I sure hope emissions testing never makes it down this far.

Mike,
Buckingham County is a gorgeous self contained time warp. Surely you already know that.....

I love Buckingham. $15 windown sticker and my garbage bill is paid for the year. I'm going to hate moving some place in the real world again...
