Colorado 300TDI

Has anyone out there been successful in have their title ammended to show the vehicle as a diesel and passed colorado emissions? I read some past posts that say it can be done just didn't see one from someone that had actually done it.. An update to an old post on this subject, Colorado now has all wheel drive dyno's at at ;east two of the testing stations in the metro area, just had my 90 with a 3.9 tested, It was pretty scary watching them rap it up to speed on the rollers.

Thanks

Tom

I know several people that have had it done, including one of my buddies at a local dealership that has 3 (1 D90, 1 D110 and 1 RR, all with 300tdi's, all tested). So yes, it can be done, without question. The last one (RR) was done just over a year ago.

Interesting, when I took mine into Douglas, CO emissions the wheelbase was too short for the dyno, so they did a basic test and passed it. It still has the 3.9. Just and observation about the dyno's.

That's funny, Bill, they've tested mine on that machine 2 or 3 times. It's scary....

I had mine tested at the Douglas County station as well. The attendant didn't use the rollers. Good thing as I was called out into the bay because they couldn't figure out how to close the hood. Mark

In colorado the D-90 is exempt from testing on the rollers. If you go to the air care colorado web site it has a lsit of exempt vehicles. You have to take the list with and be persistent or they will still try and put it on the rollers.

Any help?

This should link to the list of CO exempt vehicles. Wish I would have seen that before the nervous couple of minutes as they ramped up to 5th.

A little update for this thread:
Today I had a 300 TDI pass emissions. At the moment, in the Denver area, there is only one place with a dyno to do all wheel drive diesel vehicles. John Elway Dodge. They can do a 110 but can't bring the dyno wheels close enough together to do a D90. From what I was told, a shorter vehicle like a D90 would have to be taken to the state emissions center in Denver where they would probably run it, pump the fuel feed a couple times, and exempt the vehicle.

footnote-I didn't do the conversion, it came that way. Interestingly enough though, the previous owner's registration showed the vehicle to be gas, not diesel. That fact never came up at the test center, they didn't seem to care. Makes a fella wonder....

Funny...Getting mine tested was an adventure and the first time someone called it a Jeep. After I blew and said, "It's NOT a F^&&*ing Jeep, and if you can't drive it stay out of it." They apologized and asked me how I wanted to test it. Errr It passed. No "dyn-hos" I apologized too.
