To be fair, if people have the money to waste on their 20mpg and less gas guzzlers, then 400 a year is nothing to them is it really??

what classes as a gas guzzler?

I just keep hearing 4x4's will be getting taxed.

Buy what about 1.6l 4x4's?

Surely some are more economical than some cars?

Lol, lets all remove the worry of taxation and petrol etc, the cheapest way to get about is walking, anywhere is within walking distance if you have the time.

Mind you if we all started walking, they would start taxing us per metre within a few weeks guaranteed!!!

At the end of the day, if ye can't afford to run the vehicle, ye can't afford to run it, simple as. Most farmers who are real farmers drive defenders anyway, not these plastic pieces of crap that your average footballer and gangsta wannabe drives, and I can't really see them being defined as gas guzzlers. Anyone who drives a Defender imho is driving it because they need it for whatever reason, and should not be punished for doing so, 99.9% of people would not choose to drive one out of choice.

To be fair its a bit harsh calling it road tax then.

Road tax implies it is to cover damage to roads - which 4x4s do, as they are heavier.

Sports cars do less damage to the road but are punished for their mpg.

Environment tax would a better name, though dont we already pay enough tax on the fuel - which, at the end of the day will be relitive to the amount of fuel you use?

1.3L...RX8 anyone?

Defenders quoted combined is 28.2 mpg so not fantastic.

Matty, come on stop siding with this goverment as they have a habbit of destroying the systems that were working. NHS on its way to serious problems, prisons at bursting point, illegal immigrants and sex offenders disappearing, need i continue.

People could afford to run the cars they had when the tax was lower, its been a bit of a surprise and has landed lots of people in it. And without sounding like i'm having a go mate, get off that high horse!
