It just keeps on going up and up all the time, a little bit at a time. They think we wont notice if they do it in small steps and don't annouce it. Time for some action...

well could we go for the biggest evo meet ever, the M25 would be fine, nice and wide and long. I did wonder why no-one seems to mention cost of fuel these days.

so what you gonna do - get rid of the evo ??????????
No that's what they want.
If you think about it Kins, that really isn't what "They" want, after all as long as we're driving these gas guzzlers around we're all just making "They" richer.

The only way you can hurt them is in the pocket, buy a cheap diesel run it on chip fat and don't ever put a bean towards petrol or diesel.

But then you miss out on the Evo, rock and a hard place springs to mind. :mad:

"2009 Fuel Tax Figures
2009 fuel duty (as of 1 September 2009) in the United Kingdom is:
•56.19 pence per litre for main road fuels, unleaded petrol and diesel
•65.91 pence per litre for leaded petrol
•36.19 pence per litre for biodiesel and bioethanol
•22.16 pence per kg for road fuel natural gas
•27.67 pence per kg for road fuel liquefied petroleum gas ('LPG')

On 1 December 2008 a permanent 2p increase in fuel tax was introduced to offset the rate cut in VAT from 17.5% to 15% bringing the duty rate for the main road fuels up to 52.35p per litre.

On 1 April 2009 the duty rate for unleaded petrol and diesel was icreased by 1.84 ppl to 54.19p per litre and again on 1 September 2009 by 2 ppl to reach the current level of 56.19 per litre. These rates will be increased further on 1 April 2010 to 2013 by 1% above inflation each year."

I'm up for a meet on the m25, although this would kind of defeat the object as I'd have to fill up to get there and fill up to get back, increasing the amount of fuel I would normally use.

It also won't make any difference, but I would still join in just to make a stand.

how many cars do you think it would take to cause a real slow down on the M25? say between A1 and M3? starting rush hour. also getting lots of other owners clubs involved. I dont think we should call it a protest, more a long way round to work. :lol:

I've done a bit of research and I don't think there is a minimum speed limit on UK motorways. However I think there are laws about "Failure to make safe, reasonable progress".

I'm sure you could get fined for it but to be honest I would be willing to sacrifice my time and a bit of money for petrol and fines to make a point.
All this country needs is a catylst for people to get on their high horse and start complaining in mass about the price of fuel. A domino effect if you like.
We could be that first domino.

If people sit by and do nothing then the price of petrol is just going to go up and up and up. The whole cost of living is going up yet our wages remain the same. How long is it before enough is enough and the country revolts.

Revolution is now.
