California regulations prohibit the conversion of emission-controlled vehicles with retrofit systems to run on an alternative fuel such as natural gas, propane, or ethanol instead of original gasoline or diesel fuel, unless the upgrade systems have been evaluated and certified by the California Air Resources Board (CARB). Certification of an alternative fuel retrofit system must be obtained from the manufacturer. Certification is issued by CARB as soon as the manufacturer demonstrates compliance with emission, warranty and durability requirements. A manufacturer is defined as a person who manufactures or assembles an alternative fuel modernization system for sale in California. A person who wishes to convert a vehicle for personal use does not fall within this definition and cannot certify a modernization system in California. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has simplified its regulations for alternative fuel converters with a 3-step approach based on vehicle age and useful life (published April 8, 2011). This has led to many inquiries regarding their applicability in California.
As stated in U.S. EPA Guidance Letter CISD-10-24 (Q&A#9), California`s requirements for alternative fuel converters are different from the U.S. EPA requirements.

Vehicles of the 2003 model year and earlier vehicles were not affected by these changes. The revisions provided for a streamlining of the conversion approval process for 2004 model year vehicles and later for light-duty (LD)/high-performance (HD) engines. Manufacturers of small series have received additional relief that disappears after the 2017 model year.
