Ontario stopped doing emissions testing a year or two ago but I have no reason to believe it wouldn't pass a test.

Vehicles moving in either direction have to meet certain standards. In most cases a vehicle will be compliant. Certain Asian made vehicles can be a problem. Emission standards are federal. If a Canadian tegistered vehicle is already in the USA it can be complicated.

Put the TH on Kijiji, in Canada, and see what happens.
Price: Start high and you might get high. Start low, and....well?
Truck: Move the toy hauler first, unless someone asks about it.

Joe, although Ontario stopped testing, it was for cars. My duallie still requires testing every 2 years here in southern Ontario.

I just looked at the rules: you need a test if the diesel is registered at over 4500kg. Mine is registered at 4500kg (I know, I know...)

Is it a tailpipe/opacity test, or do they just do the OBD II check for emissions (failure) codes?

The last one I had done on the truck, it was a tailpipe test. The last one on the car was an OBD II check.

Hmm, that's not necessarily good. What burns cleaner, bio-diesel, or dino-diesel, I wonder? It would be easier to get a clean OBD II test on your diesel vehicle, than a clean tailpipe, methinks?
