Think about the price of diesel at around £1.36 a litre at the pump.
The retailer gets just 5p of this, with a further 50p going to the fuel company for finding, extracting, refining and distribution.
The rest of the 81p of the price you pay at the pump goes to the HMRC in the form of Fuel Duty and VAT.
So a 60 litre fill up of diesel means £81.60 to you
- £ 3.00 - Retailer / Garage
- £30.23 - Oil Company
- £48.37 - Tax
Incredibly £6.95 of that £48.37 tax is the VAT on the Fuel Duty! A 20.0% tax on a tax.

- Stop the "tax on a tax" whereby the government is charging 20.0% VAT on Fuel Duty. This adds 8.5% (11.6p/litre) to your fuel bill.
- Raise public awareness of the levels of tax we are all paying on fuel. Did you realise that retailers are legally obliged to show the full price of the fuel and can't show this tax separately - but we can!
