Since April, regulations have made it possible to modify the engine of your vehicle without asking the original manufacturer for its approval. This practice, in force since 1954, blocked the way for the development of retrofitting in France, when it got off to a flying start in Germany or Italy.

In France, the retrofit is aimed at 230,000 collectors, owners of 1.2 million vintage vehicles . It is also targeting a growing second-hand market, with more than 6 million cars sold each year, out of a total fleet of 32 million passenger vehicles.

Commercial vehicles, vans, refrigerated trucks often have every interest in giving up diesel, in particular to enter the heart of cities or to limit their fuel bill.

Technically, the operation is perfectly mastered. It consists of removing the existing engine, the tank, the muffler.
