From Webcode:- "Due to recent budget changes, please note that your rate of Vehicle Excise Duty may vary from that shown on your V11 reminder. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause"

From Horatio:- So if it's going to cost you 300 quid in tolls to drive to London, does it really matter whether you spend 5 quid on fuel for a Smart or five times as much running an 8 litre Bitsubatsu Hogger? If they stick with the original plan, then people will move over to less environmentally friendly vehicles. To combat that, VED will have to go through the roof on bigger engined cars
Yes I see what you mean now. I actually was offered the opportunity to do this sort of tracking by an erstwhile insurer but I didn't think I did enough miles for my input to be significant.

However.... what do you think of the idea of putting the VED on top of the petrol price?
