Hi Guys
Well we had our budget and now our road tax per year for the cruiser is now over the 1500 euro.
So I would just like to know how much we are getting ripped off compared to the rest of out fello cruiser owners where ever they may be.
Please let me know so I may cry a bit more.
As far as I can remember , now this is really where it gets dodgy but.
The cruiser produces just over 60% more C02 than say your new little car which may produce 110 g per km.
So the cruiser produces I think about 176g per km.
Yet I now have to pay 9 times the road tax of that car.
Of course the older the car the worse the emmissions get because most older car owners of 15+ years are not as fussy as us cruiser owners regarding maintainance etc.
The last test my cruiser went for it produced only .65 out of the allowable 3.0.
And I nearly forgot if I convert it to comerical it suddenly only produces very little emmisions if you were to go by the road tax band (really amazing) and if you think if this done like all other comerical vehicles they would write all this expense off against tax.
.
cheers

Road tax in the UK is currently =A3190 per year for the sort of age machines we have, rising to =A3400/year if you bought one more recently.
C02 emissions for the LC 4.2TD engine are actually around the 290 g/km mark (figures for the 1998 onwards engine)

Alright John
I know a lad that had an 80 series that had it classed as commercial -
with the seats in the back. Not sure how he did it. Something about
the boot having a certain cubic capacity compared to the seating area.
If crew cabs can be classed as commercial for tax - why not a cruiser
with a bulk head built in or something??
Worth looking into - or talking to one of the vehicle inspectors about
the specific compliance requirements.
Cheers
Niall

Do you also pay taxes included in the price of fuel?
If we over here add the money we pay at the pump to =A3180 we also pay
as the road tax , 1500 euro seems like peanuts.
