Budget 2020

Post by Eddie Honda » Wed Mar 11, 2020 2:01 pm

I'll update this later with a table, but another fiver or so will be stuck on VED for chod:
2.223 Vehicle Excise Duty (VED): Rates – The government will uprate VED rates for cars, vans and motorcycles in line with RPI from 1 April 2020.

I'm happier about the fuel duty still being frozen.

Given the collapse in the oil price that's a double bonus as they expected a rise in fuel duty.

He certainly seems to have opened the financial floodgates with this budget, hopefully ahead of the curve.

I'm looking forward to a trip over to Glasgow soon, so it won't be so painful to fill the Jaaag.

You think it'd get back on one tank?

Road tax is still way cheaper than Ireland and many other European Countries thankfully.

I'm also glad that it didn't turn out that I spent £16k in vain last week.

My cousin had a brand new discovery in southern Ireland last year, he said they just charge everybody more for the same thing to cope with the prices of everything being so much more than the UK.

Did everyone miss that Red Diesel is going (except for farmers and fishing boats)?

That bloke on the Rover 75 forum who had fitted a fuel burning webasto heater thing to his petrol tourer and was running it off a can of red diesel in the back is going to be livid.
