The big expense in running a car here for us is the fuel. We cover a lot of km here and fuel prices have rocketed.
But no more expensive than in UK. Yes, it used to be a lot cheaper and has rocketed recently, but still at least on a par.
Isn't car tax not only governed by each individual town hall, but isn't it based on CO emissions rather than engine size now?
