Diesel Brothers is an American reality television series. The series premiered on January 4, , on Discovery Channel. Despite the name and physical resemblance to one another, the Diesel Brothers are not actually brothers. Friends David "Heavy D" Sparks and David "Diesel Dave" Kiley started a fix-it shop for all types of vehicles and brought in two other men as shop helpers. Subsequently the Discovery Channel contacted the Diesel Brothers. On November 15, , the series was renewed for a sixth season which premiered on December 9, In June after hearing testimony from an emissions inspector based in Davis County, Utah that a Diesel Brothers truck had been illegally modified, a judge issued an injunction prohibiting any similar modifications in the future. Shelby determined they had violated the Clean Air Act on hundreds of occasions  and also had violated the earlier injunction. The fine was less than the maximum possible, as Judge Shelby recognized various mitigating factors. The Diesel Brothers filed an appeal in April , with their attorney arguing the case fell under a split circuit with contradictory Federal rulings.
The TV hosts were found guilty of violating the Clean Air Act.

The judge ruled that the defendants must pay the amount to the United States government and Davis County with additional restitution potentially on the way. District Court Judge Robert Shelby announced in his ruling Friday that the plaintiffs may also submit their attorney fees to be paid by Sparks and Co. This comes less than a year after Shelby found those involved with the television program guilty of violating the Clean Air Act and Utah state law by stripping diesel pickups of their legally required emissions equipment. This includes components such as diesel particulate filters DPF and exhaust gas recirculation EGR systems, both of which have been the focus of multiple regulation enforcement operations by the Environmental Protection Agency. Court documents show that none of the fines can be avoided or dismissed in bankruptcy, according to KSL. The Diesel Brothers reality show chronicles the adventures of Heavy D, Diesel Dave and their crew as they work on various larger-than-life vehicle projects. Whether it be modifying customers' trucks or building their own to give away in sales-related sweepstakes, essentially everything is tied to making pickups bigger, louder, and more outrageous than the rest. The Discovery program is more or less the result of a diesel-related retail empire that Sparks and the others have created with customization culture at its core.
