When will the politicos & national media take this seriously. Oil companies & Fuel Wholesalers continue to fleece motorists

Average retail margins for December, January and February were around 10-12p per litre, yet since the CO-VID 19 lockdown, profits have rocketed to 27p per litre, that’s 125% more in deliberate profiteering. For diesel, margins have increased from 13p to 22p or nearly 70% more being fleeced from drivers.

“Now in a time of national emergency, when every family, worker, NHS professional, deliver driver, small and medium size business worry daily about their health and financial security, the big oil companies should step up to the plate. They must help the Government cut the cost or living and pass on quickly the fall in international oil prices to drivers.  When the Coronavirus is over, those who helped the war effort will be judged, those who profiteered unnecessarily, will face harsh consequences”. Robert Halfon MP

“The immoral fuel supply chain has been ripping off drivers to the tune of over £20m per day. It borders on criminal behaviour, using the Co-Vid 19 crisis as a smokescreen to fleece UK’s 37m motorists even more than their normal greed. Our essential workers need honestly priced fuel, so they are not under even more financial pressure to help us all. The perennial cheating of the world’s highest taxed motorists, every time oil prices change, must be scrutinised by an independent PumpWatch body. The under-pressure Government must act now, to stop this chronic consumer abuse once and for all.”Howard Cox, Founder of the FairFuelUK Campaign

"it’s been one of the most successful lobbying campaigns in modern political history, successfully diverting billions from the treasury with barely a squeak." 
Gaby Hinsliff - the Guardian

Since 2010 FairFuelUK has saved drivers over £100bn in planned tax hikes in duty and VAT through constructive and objective campaigning.

Had FairFuelUK not campaigned to scrap the fuel duty escalator, fuel tax today would be 83.33p/lt rather than 57.95p/lt, 43.8% higher. 
Today you'd be paying £1.70 per litre.

FairFuelUK is supported by its founding backers: Freight Transport Association and the Road Haulage Association

The New Free #PumpWatch Smartphone App is here

Every time you fill up with diesel or petrol, you are subjected to the uncertainty and lottery of what you will pay. 

The UK has the highest fuel taxes in the world. UK drivers contribute the 5th largest income stream to the Treasury. 

There is no logic or transparency in the fuel supply chain pricing process. 

By popular demand, we have developed an APP for Apple and Android smartphones that will tell you how much you are being fleeced by the Government and the fuel supply chain.

Tell you what tax you are paying to the Treasury, each time you fill up

It will break down Fuel Duty, VAT and even the VAT charged on the Fuel Duty itself

As we collect data from drivers who use the APP, we will build up PumpWatch Prices

You will be able to keep a log of your fuel purchases and see over time the vast level of tax that you have contributed to the Government 

The data behind the App will be updated daily to include the wholesale prices of diesel and petrol

It will also show what you would pay for your fill up in over 100 other countries and how that changes overtime

You will be kept updated of the latest campaigning issues, related news, surveys and political issues 

You can keep in touch with us at FairFuelUK and contact your local MP

Our Big 3 Campaigning Issues 
Impacting on Drivers are

1. UK Fuel Duty is amongst the highest in the world

Despite 9 years of Fuel Duty freezes, secured by the incredible 1.7m supporters to FairFuelUK, over 140 MPs and key media, UK Drivers still pay the highest fuel duty in the world and are continued to be seen by the Government as pure cash cows.

We need to 
cut fuel duty 
to boost
the economy

2. UK Drivers are subject to opportunistic profiteering at the pumps

The perpetual fleecing of 37m UK drivers goes unchecked by a Government afraid to take on the oil companies. Furthermore they will never forego the extra VAT generated because of the unmonitored high pump prices.

Help us get an 
Independent Pump
Price Monitoring 
Watchdog.

3. UK Drivers are unfairly blamed and punished for ALL air pollution in our cities?

The main national and local political tactic in attempting to improve our urban air quality somewhat unfairly, revolves around thumping drivers of motorbikes, cars, vans and trucks in the pocket. It's called 'Pay to Pollute' and based on flawed health data.

Help us to make the 
Government
see sense 
and implement
proven ways 
to lower emissions
