I suspect that the real reason NZ persists with RUC is that so many people have access to diesel from farms, that the UK system would be impossible to police.
True but it's ridiculous that the diesel road users charge works out more expensive on small car.

Couldn't agree more.

Its almost as if the government is saying " OK, your car uses less fuel, so we're going to make sure that the fuel you DO use is going to cost you more, so you're no better off"

Crazy un-green logic and a crazy system.
