    I think it's great how they work out the tax based on emissions. Bigger engine have to pay more tax because they use more fuel (basically). But because they use more fuel, the owner then has to buy more fuel, which they pay tax on. So basically, you get taxed through the roof twice because you use more fuel

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    I have the previous owner to thank for that then, thanks love. I thought that it was all £215 regardless of when it was done previously.

    remember they take away some of your money for tax before you even get to the pumps to pay more tax.

    but hey it's all good
