Retrofitting a Euro 6 diesel engine
#1
My local council is about to implement a clean air zone and anything less than Euro 6 diesel has to pay a congestion charge of £9 a day, mine is a 2015 Euro 5 so I missed Euro 6 by a year. Is it worth/possible to retrofit a new Euro 6 as the council are offering grants for retrofitting/new vehicles of up to around £4.5k I think.

Looks like Euro 7 is coming into force in 2025 so not entirely sure it's worth it and it probably makes more sense to go electric but looks like I'm looking at at least £12k+ for a second hand one. Reluctant to get rid of my current van to be honest as it's low mileage and I've really looked after it but looks like going electric is inevitable in the near future.
My van: Berlingo HDi L1 90hp 850 Enterprise 2015

I think the issue would be getting it recertified on the dvla system to show it's euro 6.

Since both the UK and the EU have banned combustion engines from 2030 then I doubt any manufacturers will build any more so Euro 7 will likely be unachievable or no one will bother to try. Why make a car you can't sell to meet a standard that no longer matters.

Mine is Euro 6 but I still get taxed as if it wasn't.

I hope that EU collapse soon as possible,because they are not doing nothing well for people,as we can see with nonsense rules of banning ICE vehicles to be produced.
