Use gravity feed - it's fast and safe.

As I undestand it only if you are opperating commercially (which the revenue would expect you to prove, e.g. with accounts, invoices, receipts and MCA coding).

I'm sure its been discussed here before. And I thought CP was planning to do this.

Thanks codders- but look at it like this: The tanks have to stay in the car as they are too heavy to move when full.

The car is parked some 3 meters higher than the boat- but it is moored 20 meters away. I would have to run a pipe from the car to the boat- no sweat-
but there would probably be a passing git smoking a fag... and then

- no car
- no boat and about 10 other boats near
- no club house

400 liters odd of euro 95 would make a hell of a bang!!!!!!

Surly doing it with a pipe would be far safer than feeding it into smaller cans and then taking them down to the boat and messing around with funnels and petrol all over the deck

yes but this is for boats - we were on about lawnmowers etc.

1. No its not just for boats. This webpage is for reclaiming fuel excise duty in general (including one link on "marine voyages"). The link I posted also covers use in power generation, commercial horticultural use and as a raw material in chemical production.

2. Use in a lawnmower, to my understanding, is still liable to fuel excise duty. If it is used by a VAT registerred business they can presumably recover the VAT but NOT the excise duty.

3. Hightowers's original question - said

Now that's interesting. Can one get a rebate on fuel Tax, if it's not used for the car?
rather than "can I claim it back for use in my lawnmower", as this is rib.net I think it is a reasonable assumption that we were discussing use in a boat?

I am going back to using my boat for the intended purpose that I purchased it initially- i. e the carraige of newspapers to Belgium.It seems much more largesse than it use to be. It"s spelled out pretty clearly. anybody know what the duty on euro 95 is??
