Dont get carried away too much guys.... dont forget if Renault still produced the 3.0ltr diesel engine it would fall into this "super 225 G/KM" tax bracket .... as luck has it nothing in the roadtax world is retrospective (yet) so if purchased before last April your stuck in the F class .... but its too close for comfort as my 2.2dCi is rated at 206G/KM .... and I really would not call either of them a gas guzzler or a Chelsea tractor!

As usual its nothing to do with the enviroment, its just a way of getting brownie points by riding the green ticket ... oh, yeah, I almost forgot .... and taxing the motorist even harder ...I mean what percentage of "4x4's" make up the G band, and how many "sports cars" use diesel engines ?

Get real ... its another tax con ... (good lord I'm starting to sound like Jeremy Clarkson ... except I kinda like my diesel people carrier.)

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
