Sounds a bit thick, it's a false economy.

I couldn't agree more but this is someone who gets his clothes from charity shops and boot sales and hardly ever turns on the heating except when someone visits - and even then it's only on in the sitting room. In his case it's not so much thick as he's a talented man. 40 years earning a fortune at the BBC designing special effects for shows like Dr Who. It's probably a sort of OCD as he'd rather put up with discomfort and inconvenience than write a cheque. I'm not sure if he even has any cards as I've never seen his wallet, in fact I'm not sure if he even has a wallet.

Not just emission based but also on car value. My cars:

Audi a1 (relatively low emission)-  £30

defender TD5 (lots of emissions) - £330 

Tesla (zero emission) - £200 ish

Nope. Because it was over £40k you have to pay the ‘luxury car rate’. It’s actually £320 not the £200 I thought it was as well.
