Jaysus!!

Is this because Diesel is less environmentally friendly?

Perhaps you should read this, but it is not only London, Paris, Oslo and other Cities have had recent problems also. Last week data was issued that diesel cars produce 10 times more NO2 pollution than heavy trucks and buses - Dave ;)

I don't believe anything I read in the Daily Mail!

But I do believe it's gonna become increasingly expensive to run diesel cars, especially in London (where I live), which is why I'm selling my 2.0 diesel Ford Mondeo GhiaX, and getting a 1.2 petrol Qashqai Tekna.

Has the threat of increased costs put off diesel Drivers ? this article is from the BBC.
Almost half of diesel drivers plan to buy another diesel car when they change vehicle, despite concerns over air pollution, a survey suggests - Dave ;)

This may well be old news to you in the U.K. But I was unaware of these new charges until it appeared here today - Dave :)

Rod, thanks for that article I was a bit surprised but it looks like changes are taking place. This morning I read this in the "Daily Mail" which is a similiar article - Dave ;)

Sorry mate - I refuse to read any Daily Mail articles - or the Sun. Don't want to increase their visitor numbers
