"SEC. 247. VEHICLE CONVERSIONS.

   "(a)  Conversion of  Existing  and  New Conventional  Vehicles  to

Clean-Fuel  Vehicles.-The  requirements  of  section 246  may  be  met

through the conversion of existing  or new gasoline or  diesel-powered

vehicles  to  clean-fuel vehicles  which  comply  with the  applicable

requirements of that section. For purposes of such provisions

the conversion of a vehicle to clean fuel vehicle shall  be treated as

the   purchase of a clean fuel vehicle.  Nothing in this part shall be

construed  to provide that any covered fleet operator subject to fleet

vehicle  purchase requirements under section  246 shall be required to

convert  existing  or  new  gasoline  or  diesel-powered  vehicles  to

clean-fuel vehicles or to purchase converted vehicles.

   "(b) Regulations.-The Administrator shall, within  24 months after

the enactment of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990, consistent with

the requirements of this title  applicable to new vehicles, promulgate

regulations   governing  conversions   of  conventional   vehicles  to

clean-fuel  vehicles.  Such regulations  shall establish  criteria for

such conversions  which  will ensure  that  a converted  vehicle  will

comply with  the standards  applicable under  this part to  clean-fuel

vehicles. Such regulations  shall provide for the  application to such

conversions of the same provisions of this title (including provisions

relating to administration enforcement) as are applicable to standards

under  section 242,  243, 244,  and 245,  except that  in the  case of

conversions the Administrator  may modify  the applicable  regulations

implementing such  provisions as the Administrator  deems necessary to

implement this part.

   "(c) Enforcement.-Any  person who  converts conventional  vehicles

to clean fuel vehicles pursuant to subsection (b), shall be considered

a  manufacturer for  purposes  of sections  206  and 207  and  related

enforcement  provisions.  Nothing  in  the  preceding  sentence  shall

require a person  who performs such conversions to warrant any part or

operation of a vehicle other than as required under this part. Nothing

in  this paragraph shall limit the applicability of any other warranty

to unrelated parts or operations.

   "(d)  Tampering.-The  conversion   from  a   vehicle  capable   of

operating  on gasoline  or diesel  fuel only  to a  clean-fuel vehicle

shall  not  be considered  a violation  of  section 203(a)(3)  if such

conversion complies with the regulations  promulgated under subsection

(b).

   "(e) Safety.-The Secretary of Transportation shall, if  necessary,

promulgate  rules under  applicable motor  vehicle laws  regarding the

safety  of  vehicles  converted  from existing  and  new  vehicles  to

clean-fuel vehicles.

"SEC. 248. FEDERAL AGENCY FLEETS.

   "(a)  Additional  Provisions  Applicable.-The  provisions of  this

section shall apply, in addition to the other provisions of this part,

in the case of covered fleet  vehicles owned or operated by an agency,

department,  or  instrumentality  of  the  United  States,  except  as

otherwise provided in subsection (e).

   "(b)  Cost  of Vehicles  to  Federal  Agency.-Notwithstanding  the

provisions of section  211 of the Federal  Property and Administrative

Services  Act of 1949, the Administrator of General Services shall not

include  the incremental costs of clean-fuel vehicles in the amount to

be  reimbursed by  Federal agencies  if  the Administrator  of General

Services  determines that  appropriations  provided  pursuant to  this

paragraph are sufficient to  provide for the incremental cost  of such
