    No.

    Not because of any of the normal reasons though. Simply paying more money in tax DOES NOT help the environment from these large fuel hungry engines. I say ban engines over 2.2 litres. They are not needed.

    Throwing money at the government does not tackle the problem . Simple

    I personally wouldn't mind paying extra if they actually invested the money from road tax on road building and repairs.
    As only 35% of all road tax collected is actually spent on roads its the same old story of the motorist being used as a revenue generator for the government.

    Cars should get an emissions grouping when they are MOT tested. This should then determine what tax bracket they fall into. This way the biggest polluters get the biggest bill. Cars under three years old should be taxed according to their emissions also.

    Alternatively buy diesel

    Say again. Buying out the problem is not feasible or realistic. Paying more alone will do nothing. Money should be being spent on developing lower emissions vehicles, upgrading existing dirty polluters.

    Car tax is ONLY one way the Government raises the necessary funds for all its expenses. Make it more efficient is the only way forward.

    It makes you wonder if the oil companies have a vested interest in there not being an alterative means of "fuel", Call me cynical but I bet there are on or two patents that they have bought of an "inventor" and put in a draw to keep the oil flowing...

    Just checked the DVLA website and the new band G only applies to new vehicles registered on or after 23rd March 2006. That means that the V6s stay in their current Band F, but there is still an increase to £190 (£195 for diesels). New 3.2s and VXRs registered after today attract the new rate. Details here - http://www.dvla.gov.uk/vehicles/Chan...ehicle_tax.htm
