Quoted from MJB
Not if the car is simply parked up - and no-one in it. They don't go door knocking for an out of date tax disc - and believe me, with my "past life" I KNOW this to be the case!!!!  

Sorry MJB missed your reply -
You need to give notice the vehicle is off the road. Last month 32 cars went to the crusher in Skem area because they were 'On the Queens highway' with out of date tax disc. The Police with DVLA rep knocked on owners doors to give them a last chance to buy a valid disc before their cars were towed.

I  came on this thread as I've just paid 1.02 / litre for unleaded petrol.  >

Over here they just clamp your car, then its collected in 3/5 days by a pick up lorry..... It happened to a guy who parked his car outside my house.... tho he was going to a house across the road.... nobody called to see who the car belonged to.

Fuel is crap at the moment. 1.09 at services near me for diesel. As for car tax - 180 for my own car, luckily I dont need to tax the other one - so I drive round in that.

The goverment can do something about this, the tax on fuel is something 85%

Our Bongo is very low MPG, but we can run veggie oil   But even this has gone up in the last couple of weeks as the supermarkets cotton on that it can be used as fuel.. We have been getting it for less than 60p a litre and run with a 30/40 mix of veggie oil and diesle

Nope, it is actually better than Diesel, not all engines can run on it, but a Bongo can   The Diesel engine was originally designed to run on Peanut Oil, I kid you not
