i always thought that to pay duty on fuel you have to actually use it, and the law defines that when fuel is in the tank it has been `used` hence thay can charge you duty ontop at the pump. not 100% though, when i was doing my `research`.
you are allowed to make 2500 litres a year for your own consumtion duty free so to speak.
yes should be, but as always once duty is added ontop theres not much left over, i feel no guilt at all driving my 50 mpg round town, 80mpg on motorway astra eco4 diesel @ 80p a litre
500 miles to a full tank round town, and 2 barrels to fill her (£40), was getting screwed on my old 1.4 petrol astra.
unfortunatly thought things are gonna get worse and before long i`ll be paying £1.20 a litre for my bio diesel and you lot will be paying £2.00 a litre on the pump for dino. sad but true thats were where heading i`m afraid.
