There's a place down in Georiga called Shade Tree Conversions; they do something rather unique, and that is putting FARM TRACTOR engines into vehicles! The good news is, since your Vicky is a '94, it is both OBD-exempt and also emissions-exempt if a diesel conversion if performed and the paperwork is filed at the MVC.

They have a demo F150 turbodiesel swap that averages around 40 MPG. Your car might be a bit of a slug off the line with the lack of HP and zero top end power, but 170 pounds of torque is enough to cruise at 65.
