New Requirement in 2022: Fuel Type Designation on RD-108

In January of 2022, the Michigan Department of State will require all dealers to designate the vehicle fuel type for each new vehicle transaction. This requirement will be enforced by the Michigan Department of State, Business Licensing Division. During MDOS inspections, compliance with this requirement will be reviewed.

The exact implementation date has not yet been announced, but we anticipate the state will begin mandating it by mid-January.
