'The Environmental Protection Agency protects people and the environment from significant health risks, sponsors and conducts research, and develops and enforces environmental regulations.'

This has been a hot topic of debate in the automotive world. How does this effect consumers and it's repair facilities? Rule of thumb is that you don't perform any emissions removals. Why? Well, the U.S. Clean Air Act can penalize individuals up to $2,500 or $25,000 for dealerships and manufacturers per offense. 

Let's talk about pros and cons of owning a diesel.


  • Increased torque, better towing capabilities, faster initial acceleration than that of a gasoline engine.
  • Better fuel efficiency, fewer trips to the pump.
  • Fewer parts make up a diesel engine, no need for ignition tune-ups.


  • Biodiesel is a fuel option, however, it may lead to decreased engine performance.
  • Regular maintenance more important than compared to a gasoline engine.
  • Diesel vehicles are more expensive, diesel mechanics are more expensive.

Not including fleet vehicles, diesel engines have gained popularity amongst today's consumers. They typically deliver 25% to 30% better fuel economy than similarly performing gasoline engines. They even economically out perform a hybrid electric gasoline car.

Taking it back to the Industrial Revolution, diesel engines changed society as we knew it. Companies were able to save massive amounts of money transporting goods because a diesel has a much more efficient way to deliver it's power, making it much less to deliver goods across the country. This impacted train and shipping transports so great that it's still almost exclusively the most relied on form of fuel in goods transportation today.

The diesel engine had a major impact during the Industrial Revolution, delivering power more efficiently, thus less expensively, for a variety of industries all over the world. Because its use did not require burning coal, train transport and shipping companies were able to save a great deal of money."

So should you 'delete' your emissions system on your diesel? The obvious short answer is no, however it's more complex than that. Aside from it being a literal government law, you're damaging internal parts and will leave with a $3,000 mechanic bill very shortly after performing an emissions removal.

Company Experience

Posted by Elite Admin

Kyle Orr's Elite Automotive started it's business over 5 years ago and transitioned to it's DBA in 2020 to Elite Automotive and Diesel. The business brings over 20 years of combined automotive mechanic experience to the table while specializing in automotive diesel engine repair. Even though there are many opportunities in the gasoline industry, there aren't many dedicated independent repair facilities to the diesel truck community. Fleet maintenance alone can cost upwards of $5,600 per year to maintain and assumingly around $2,100 for an independent consumer averaging 15,000 miles per year. You're going to want a professional that has the knowledge to do more than just routine maintenance. A diesel engine requires special attention to maintenance and it's performance parts before you end up with a catastrophic failure. With that, Elite has gone away from working on gasoline engines and moved strictly into working on diesels. The team is certified in Power Stroke, Cummins, Detroit, Volvo, and many more; as well as, college scholars. 

Kyle's team offers more than the obvious mechanic skill, the company offers a wide variety of services, including but not limited to: routine maintenance, fuel injector replacement, complete engine rebuild and overhaul, and even transmission replacements. They have the highest quality of technology in software and diagnostics tools the industry has to offer. With all of that, there is even a new space for customers to wait on same day services, where as, the company was once unable to offer this kind of accommodation to it's customers just a few short months ago. The company is growing rapidly and that only shows the trust and loyalty Elite's team has backing them.
