Default Changing Diesel to Gasoline

Does anyone know if you can change a 2016 Kawasaki mule from a diesel to a gasoline engine? Have been very unhappy with this mule for some time now. We have modified the air intake.

Not much you can do that will make a diesel have the speed of a gas engine. And where a diesel uses sheer compression to create the combustion, I don't think you'd be able to convert, personally. My thought is you might end up spending so much it would have been better to just buy a good used one. I could be completely wrong. I don't like modifications, personally and wouldn't know where to begin something like this. Just best guesses.

The best thing to do would be just trade it in for a gas powered one. If you want more power and speed, I'd go with something other than a gas powered mule too. I'd look at a Teryx instead if you're diehard Kawasaki fan.
