Can I upgrade my Euro5 Transit van to Euro6?

How much would it cost to modify a 2012 Ford Transit Van to avoid ULEZ charge?

In theory, it is possible to retrofit a Euro5 diesel to Euro6 but I've yet to find a single company in London (or otherwise) that is willing to do this on vans under 3.5t. To complicate matters further, any modification would need to be approved by Transport for London (TfL) to avoid the ULEZ charge.

It's important to note that the ULEZ is governed by the vehicle's emissions and not the Euro rating. This means some older vans are exempt from the charge. You can check yours, here:

I have a 2011 Land Rover Freelander 2 diesel. What can I do to get through London's Emissions. The car has EUR 4, and I think it has to be better than 6.
We have three dogs but I also drive to London twice a week so I need a car that’s practical, comfortable and ULEZ compliant. I also do at least one journey a fortnight of 150 miles plus. We own a Freelander...
