Sadly, it's that time of year again. V11 received today demanding £540 from my diminishing funds. STI covers about 4,000 miles a year - some may not agree, but isn't it time VED was abolished and replaced with extra fuel duty (or at least a discount on V- Power!!).

After April we will be linked to the famous Subaru livery ...... it will cost a cool £555 to keep them legal .....absolute disgrace ....the road conditions are shocking....the government are too busy trying to hold on to their gravy train to care about us .... they think the car is a privilege to us and not a necessity so we got no chance.....😡

I used to agree wit the idea that it should be added to the fuel so the more miles you do the more you pay, it makes complete sense. What does complicate this in the current climate is that as more people go electric they wouldn't be buying the fuel so the government would need to fill that void with some other bonkers scheme.

I agree with you all.  Should we take a lead from the French and organise all SIDC members to drive down to Westminster, block all access to Parliament, wave some banners, light some tyres and kidnap Philip Hammond?  (Only joking just in case MI5 looking in)...
