    Hi
    Tech data has it listed as exactly 2500cc, that is unusual as most engines are a few CCs either way, have done a few sample checks and data list does appear to list exact figures, what is yours listed at??

    Hi Geo, Thanks for that:thumb:

    Thats what I thought & what the handbook said 2.5 But Swansea said manufacturers don't usually make engines at the exact CC so they want me to get a letter stating exact CC, fuel type & engine number & there starts the problem:Angry:
    Just been to Peugeot & they couldn't help me because the mechanic said he wouldn't be able to tell what size engine it was just looking at it:Doh:
    Went to vosa they don't deal with anything under 3500, so don't know where to go next:cry:

    Doesn't that info show up if you check the vehicle for tax on the DVLA website?

    Hi digger,

    Yeh normally it would but I converted the van to Diesel,
    I sent the log book back, filled in with all the new details & Swansea sent a letter back saying I had to state the exact CC, Fuel Type & Engine Number, which I'd already supplied,
    I phoned Swansea & they informed me that the exact CC had to be confirmed (even though its correct:Angry:) by Peugeot, AA Ispection or Garage, incase I travel to London:Eeek:

    Thanks Anyway:thumb:
