Low emission zone for that vehicle is currently suspended - due to kick in 2012 (was 2010). There's some info on the web, try TFL site - see quote below.

"How do I know if my motor caravan is affected by the Low Emission Zone (LEZ)?
Mayor's proposed Air Quality Strategy, 'Clearing the Air", confirms the continued suspension of Low Emission Zone regulations for large vans and minibuses until 2012. Find out More.

It depends very much on its weight. If it is over 2.5 tonnes gross vehicle weight, meaning it has the same emissions characteristics as a heavier van or truck, then it is affected by the LEZ.
If the vehicle is over 3.5 tonnes gross vehicle weight, it is affected from 7 July 2008. If it is between 2.5 and 3.5 tonnes gross vehicle weight, it is not affected until 10 October 2010."

So what's the situation with T25's running on petrol then? (Sorry, ignorant northerner)

It's a long shot but Maybe someone would be willing to do a trade for a similar petrol van.

Got to be worth a try before giving up on T25's altogether.

Diesel is an engine not a fuel.

I liked camping so much I went full time.

You can get it exempt i have the paper work from lez.Get your van registered as a motor caravan with dvlc if its not allready mine was a panel van. Take photos of the vin plate with the weight of the vehicle & present evidence of the t25 manufactures vehicle spec weight mine is registered with dvlc & lez as unladen 1480 gross weight 2460 body type motor caravan i will list its compliance status.
phase 1 from 18th june 2008 to 6th jul 2008 pre euro not subject to lez
phase 2 from 7th july 2008 to 3rd oct 2010 pre euro not subject to lez
phase 3 from 4th oct 2010 to 2nd jan 2012 pre euro not subject to lez
phase 4 from 3rd jan 2012 pre euro not subject to lez.

Dont no after 2012 but its okay till then.

How do you change the vehicle description
Mine is a Private Light Goods vehicle, but is a Hitop camper

Are they reluctant, or is it simple?

On the registration document private light goods is for taxation class status .But body type can be classed as motor caravan if it isnt you will need to submit evidence to the dvlc.I took photographs of the conversion such as the side lifting roof and inside the van with its cooker unit sink&fridge.Dvlc need to be convinced that the van is a motor caravan conversion as panel van owners revising the body plan on the registration doc can be refused from what i hear.

Thats not to say one could not have a camper van conversion in a panel van its a case of submitting evidence to the dvlc for the body plan on the vehicles registration docs.

The legislation only applies to "heavy oil" burners (aka Diesel ) so you petrol heads are OK

This is not accurate, as most smelly diesels show as a fail, you need it inform them that it is a camper to get it exempt.
