Default Engine co2 emissions proof?

Hi there,
I was wondering is there any way in which I can get proof of emissions for my 1993 ford sierra engine?
It's just over here in Ireland theyl automaticially put my in the highest group for road tax unless I can prove it's less. Which it will be about 2500 a year!
Would ford be able to give me the co2 reading?
Thanks,
Darryl

There is a manual that should be in every mot station in the land that gives the emissions for every vehicle in the database and the 17th edition is current.

Match the car and engine code for the right emissions.

Hi Darryl,
i have had a good look into this and spoken to the vro and have the following to offer.

VRT and the cars road tax rate is based on the co2 rate of the engine of your donor car.

Any Sierra petrol (if you can get any official figure from ford) will have you in the 32-36% vrt band (not a problem itself) but locks the car to 1100 or 2100 a year for tax for life

you need economy of 45 mpg petrol, or 55 mpg diesel to get sensible tax rates so

A 2001 fiesta tddi e-diesel has a co2 figure of 120 gCO2/km which is where you want to be for 104 tax and 14% vrt.
(I'm sure someone can confirm if this bolts to the Type 9 or MT75??)

from revenue.ie
" This is the level that will be used for taxation purposes and will not change regardless of post-production modifications that might be made, modifications that might either increase or decrease the levels of emissions of the vehicle"

which means you can fit the diesel for registration then do what you like!!

we in the uk can use a diesel for iva exhaust emmisions and can be changed later but sadly it only gets road tax on its engine size but it is a bit cheaper here.

i have always wounderd what would happen if you turned up for an iva running a non petrol/diesel engine like useing svo (neet veg oil) or e85
there is stuff in the manual for gas (cng+lpg),petrol & diesel

Hi lads, thanks for all the relplies!
Yeah but if I went with a diesel fiesta engine, and then switched, then would this not effect me for my nct after 4 years? Like would I have to put the diesel engine back in for every nct?
Thanks again,
Darryl!
