    DVLAup to their usual standards.

    What month and year was your van registered.
    Need day, month and year not just year.

    Hi Roy
    It does sound a bit daft, PLG £245 PHG £165, I increased the gross weight on my last MH and got a refund of the PLG tax paid. Pete (y)(y)

    I know that I may sound naive but how do you increase rne weight of van to 4ton. ..? And how do you apply to have van registered as that, and what are the implications. Rgds Roy.

    And they claim it's all to do with emissions .....lying bastids

    Buy a land rover discovery same engine same emissions but the tax varies depending how many windows it has.

    A 10 tonne truck pays less than my car

    Hmm. Looks like I may well have the same battle then in September. Back in March I paid £123.75 for 6 months tax and mines a 2010 3.3t fiat.

    Unless of course the tax rates changed drastically in April.

    Looking at the tax rate table it would seem that I have paid the 6 month rate for a vehicle registered after 1st March 2001 (TC39) and not the euro 5 rate registered between 1st January 2009 and 31st December 2010 (TC36).

    My vehicle was registered March 2010 - so would this automatically mean it is euro5 and is being taxed in the wrong class?

    Thanks Mike, it confirms the "correct" rate of duty even if it doesn't make sense!
