Taxing question!

Got my V5 doc through today, states that co2 emissions are 179g/km. The DVLA site, and all the car review sites state 165g/km. this is a 25 difference.

The car is gt jtd, can anyone save me the trouble of sitting through the dvla answerphone system and tell me how much tax i will look forward to paying.

Man, why is nothing ever easy?

Re: Taxing question!

OK, so I am guessing your JTD is a few years old?

I queried this with the DVLA last year when min e was renewed, I have a 54 plate JTD and my V5 states 179g/Km, but the Alfa site lists the engine as 165g/Km.

Turns out there was a revision in late 05 early 06 it seems to a Euro IV compliant engine, the later engine is 165g/Km, the earlier engines are Euro III and 179g/Km.

Must be a different map and perhaps changes to the cat, DVLA only go with whats on the V5 so you are stuck with the £165 not £140 I am afraid.

If you want to cut your road tax get a Punto Diesel, costs my sister £35 a year!
