Re: road tax

i spent a grand upgrading mine to LPG, it didnt do much to reduce the Tax rate!

Year of Manufacture 2002
Cylinder Capacity (cc) 1783cc
CO2 Emissions 184g/Km

Vehicle Type Approval M1
Vehicle Excise Duty rate for vehicle
6 Months Rate 112.75
12 Months Rate 205.00

and thats for a car that only runs on petrol for 5 minutes after cold start and on LPG all the rest of the time.

No idea of the real CO2 emissions level as the MOT gas test doesnt list a recorded reading for petrol, let alone LPG.
I did ask the MOT Station about it and they said they cannot record it, as running on lpg messes up thier machine.

Re: road tax

Find a comparitive car and take a photocopy of the V5 (especially the emissions data), compare this with yours and if different (which it should be) contact DVLA with the evidence and ask them to amend their records and provide a refund of excess duties paid.
