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.

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

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 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

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.
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
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
