    all depends on emmisions cos that is what you will pay tax on,but will be nice to have a merc as a company car,also check what it comes with cos merc usually want extra money for extras other cars come with as standard,if well specced this ia also taxable.

    the deal we have is we get a bp fuel card and company pay all the fuel,then we claim business milage at 11p per mile and we pay private milage at 11p per mile,we also get a 4p per litre discount on pump price cos we(bunzl)have over 1000 company motors,so if i can do more than 42mpg the company actualy owe me money each month which i use towards paying my private fuel and we get £250 in december from ecops who manage the account.

    i manage a team of engineers who fix vending m/cs,company cars have there pros and cons its never been more expensive to run one than it is now,but its nice to find out how much tyres,servicing,repaires are when you dont have to pay for it,but lots of places treat you like just the driver of the car as apposed to the owner and just assume you dont give a toss what they do to it.
