    FUEL DUTY CON

    Hi Folks,

    This should be passed to as many people as possible! ...

    When VAT was temporarily reduced to 15%, the Chancellor added 2% duty to fuel to offset the reduction in tax collected from motorists. Now that VAT has been increased to 17.5% again this hidden tax has not been removed - hence recent rises in your fuel costs. Sign the petition at the link below to have this stealth tax removed!

    Please pass this on to your friends - the more the merrier. Happy motoring!

    I intend to send an email to my MP to ask him to follow this up and to get the chancellor to remove that tax.

    Regards,
