Cheap Diesel

Oh dear.
What about Agri diesel for the farming community? Most of the cost is tax anyway lads, so start lobbying.

The Agri Diesel (greenI think) is still cheap over here so I am guessing that there will be many Rib Runs in teh direction of Carlingford Lough and Howth.
You are all welcome (seeing as I live on west coast where we make our own!!!!)
What about that, Teh Bio fuel is a` comming.

I think we pay some 70 cent per Ltr for Diesel not used on the road...
Maybe less and maybe you can get the vat back on it if going back to uk as it should not be subject to tax there if its used up on the way.

A bit like drinking the duty free on the plane.........
Brown bags and bags of ice, oh dear did I say too much...

So fishing boats will still be able to fill up with red?
or will they be filling up like us and then claiming back money?

I can see this being almost impossible to police and having so many ways to beat it.
We'll see.

I have been told that as a comercial user we will just fill up as normal and claim the duty back for any vessel classed as commercial. One of the problems they have to sort out is if a non-commercial vessel has diesel heating fed from the main fuel tank the fuel used for heating will still be exempt.

Most countries who disagree with an EU law just choose to ignore it - of course Britain has far too many jobsworths for that!!!

I hear those diesel heaters use an awful lot of fuel
