How long before they start taxing it higher Chris?

Used to be that diesel was the cost effective fuel of choice, but its now taxed worse than petrol. Can't see the tax vultures letting bio-diesel escape for long.

Yeah I know what ya mean Gary. I'm just going to cash in while the tax is low.
The other way is to go LPG, but the conversion costs are stupid at the moment

In theory the point of the stupidly high tax on petrol is for environmental reasons. Its to discourage car usage. In practice it doesnt work but they couldnt claim those reasons for taxing bio-fuel.

There have been murmurs here about a tax on distance instead of gasoline. It seems to me though that it would only encourage lower efficiency cars as opposed to a gas tax which hits larger, less efficient cars harder.

Hi Chris,

If I had a diesel, I think I'd join you and run bio while it's still cheap, but both my cars are petrol driven so I'm stuck. Agree about the conversion costs on LPG, and availability is still an issue.

That's the fairy tale they spin us to justify the high cost of gas, real reason is that the government knows we don't want to lose the convenience of our cars, so it can use the "environmental good" lie to screw us out of more money. I agree with you that it'll be hard to use that argument with Bio-diesel, but they're an inventive lot, and I'm sure they'll soon find a reason why "for our good" they have to put the price up.

I heard photoshop CS3 is supposed to have a "convert to diesel" filter.
