It happened to me, I emailed the state and had it straightened out. I was very important for me to do that because I live in the part of Missouri that requires emission inspections for gassers but diesels are exempt.

Gardentender also has a Texas title with "gas" on it. My Texas title says "diesel". [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

After paying my visit to my local DMV to correct my title and reggi, I once again called my dealer and told him of my problem. The answer I got was OFF THE RECORD and I'll deny it. But back in 99 and 2000 vw was not allowed to sell diesels in N.Y. and ther way around it was to sell it as a gas and then down the road correct your title as diesel. I told him that my car was purchase before the law went into affect which was oct 99. I purchase my car in july. He had no answer for me except that it was a mistake and over looked..

So ther might be others out there with the same problem but, like myself never caught it...

The county clerk suggested I leave mine "gas" to save some cash since, I guess, there isn't a rating for diesel cars; we just get lumped in with the biguns. (If memory serves, my tax would have been double [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] )

sounds like the DMV clerk i talked with told me something that wasn't so. she said that a vehicle my size could only be listed as "gas" which doesn't appear to be so if you compare ZwoTdi's title for his 2000 model with my 2001.

ahh, bureaucracy at it's best.

This is very interesting. I live in Texas and have had my Golf TDI for a little over a year. I have not carefully examined my title or registration or anything for a 'G'as or 'D'iesel. Also, my Golf came from the dealer with a two-year inspection sticker so I won't be getting it inspected for another year.

I did however recently pay my annual vehicle registration at the county tax office and it was something like ~$65. Does that sound like what you other guys in TX are paying? I will look for the papers tonight.

Am I the only one who looked at this thread and thought it said, "Look at your titties"?

I did, and they're not very impressive.
