Think all Diesel owners should fill the sensus or start buying used chip shop oil. In addition make a note to ask your MP when he suddenly appears from 5 years of hibernation and wants your vote during the next election.

In anticipation of the 2006 change and only commercial users being allowed to use Red, I think I will apply to be an independant Inspector ( Minsistry of Transport ) based on the sea...................

If nothing else comes of it, at least another government body will be able to justify a new 100,000 + Rib to use in calm weather and at weekends. Standing on the quay side dipping tanks would not be good enough, they would have to have all the kit, RIB, LandRover, may be even a helicopter to spot diesel engined Ribs...........

mark my words, the above will come true in some form and I want to know how to get on the band wagon......

Anyone else see where I am comming from.

Going over to the dark side I think. you would end up chasing those 'orrible grey ribs smuggling ilicit diesel across the channel at night time from the free states (Channel Isles).

Hi folks

Would the increase in duty on fuel be enforceable for fuel used outside uk waters ?.

If I am out side UK waters, ie international waters 12 miles I belive, can I still use untaxed fuel ?.

Is so I would carry two tanks, head offshore 12 miles I belive, then run on untaxed fuel until re-entering uk waters..

Can anyone make comment on this, is this correct ?.

Regards Gary

Another Shafting from the Government

Hi All,

Well IMHO all diesel boat owners are just about to get Shafted good and proper.

If you read the questionaire, all questions are biased towards taxation, and you cannot give a null answer.

In my view this is the government's way of raising taxation by getting the RYA to do the donkey work for them.

I for one would not fill in the paper out of principal.
