    Fuel Excise Increase

    Devil From 10th of November excise goes up from 38.143 cents to 38.6 cents per litre is this a good thing or bad for scootering ? Big Smile

    No grabbamint tax is good. Ours' goes up each July.  Regular gas is $2.14 a litre, and about $1.00 is made up of 3 different taxes, all with different names. I dont think your increase would be enough to get more people on scooters. If people have no inkling to ride two wheels, no price hike will change their thinking.

    By my calculations, this will cost me approximately 3c every time I fill up the Bev, maybe an average of 2c per week.

    I for one welcome the tax. Means less cars on the road and more for us.

    Holy Hell that is a big increase --I think I will have to send the wife out to work again and get rid of our do nothing dog that is costing a fortune

    If those dumbarse politicians who we pay all these taxes to cannot get the books to balance we should vote them out and get some smarter ones that learnt how to add and subtract

    Didnt we hear good old Swanee saying he was going to get us back into the black .What a pack of lies that was

    We have become a bunch of bhludgers wanting anything we can get from government and whinging like hell whenevfer they take our goodies away

    What will happen if this increase in tax hurts anyone ,then they will reduce their driving /riding and that will mean less carbon emmissions so a win win  all alround

    I hardly think that will break the bank.  I won't even notice it.
