    Hello to you all
    We have just found out that we are unable to visit my partners son for christmas

    in the motor home. We have an 04 kon tiki 645. Due to the vehicles weight we are not allowed in

    the emmsions zone. The unladen weight of the van is under 3.5 tons but the gross weight is

    3850kgs I find this so unfare. I thought it was all about emmsions, I have spoken to the D V L A

    who have said send a emmsions reading to them and they will put that on my V5 (log book) but

    dont know what difference this will make as transport for london work by weight not emmisions

    IE putting our van into juggernaut class (euro 4 class) Have been quoted £2200 plus vat for a

    filter. So now we will have to take two vehcles to london or maybe get a soleless hotel. Well thats

    all from us. love to you all Mark & Shirley.

    Where abouts in London are you going? it might be that there is a site not too far away and you could grab a lift to the house from there.

    Bastards. It is a tax nothing more it grabs millions from the unknowing and untold.
    Ford say my van is compliant LEZ say not.

    The cheapest method of making any vehicle compliant is a small piece of black tape strategically placed on a number or a letter.
    Or a replacement set of plates which might accidentally have been made with 1 wrong digit or digits in the wrong order ;)

    Accidents do happen :eek:
