    Decatting a Diesel

    You CAN remove the catalytic converter on your Diesel Car without having a problem with the MOT. Having taken advice from VOSA, who control MOT testing in the UK, we are 100% confident that removing the CAT on a Diesel won't cause an issue. The confusion has arisen due to the regulations changing in January 2012 for cars which qualify for a full gas emissions test where 'if a cat was fitted as standard, it must be there for the MOT'. As Diesel cars don't qualify for a full gas emissions test, the regulation doesn't apply. The same is true for DPFs which you can also remove (they're not even mentioned in the manual)

    I was not 100% sure what the rules were, MOT is due in Sept and recently had dfp/cat removed.

    seems to be correct- http://www.motinfo.gov.uk/htdocs/m4s07000101.htm

    section 3-

    if the testers just read the fail reason without looking at which cars it applies to then the would fail diesels too- not just the petrols it is aimed at.....
