6lt in a pick up and deisel, why, why do you need that. Its enough for a commercial truck! or tractor trailer i believe there called in the USA. Course they wont tune it properly so the power CC will be wasted.

God knows, back home that size engine would be in something with Volvo written on the front and a 40ft trailer full of Tesco's finest on the back.

Don't be daft-my Scania is 11 litres and I think Phil's was 14. 6 litres might just move a dustcart

My company told us yesterday that we would only be paid 9p per mile for running our deisel cars as this is the Inland Revenue allowance for a deisel under 2000cc.

We've been claiming 12p in the past and thsi has meant that most of us have broken even.

With the 25% drop in allowance and the ever rising price of fuel it will now be costing me 2 - 2.5p for every business mile I drive.

Hmm....I can feel more train journeys coming on.

Hang on Phil, You know that you can claim a mileage back from the Inland Revenue when you put in your tax return if you are operating a private vehicle for company use? (Well at least you could in 2004 when I last paid tax in the UK ). Keep a record of company mileage and then you get to claim the difference between the IR mileage rate (40p upto 10k miles IIRC) and whatever you were paid as tax relief. e.g 40-12=28p per mile. Its quite common for employers to pay a bare minimum in mileage rate in the expectation you will claim back in your tax return. Good cashflow for the employer not so good for the employee!

HTH,
Alan

I do the same as alan, because we have to track mileage i already keep sheets. And the IR actually give me an allowance on the tax code for the approx milage i do each year as its fairly flat for me

better than a poke in the eye
