How the TPA Green Calculator results were produced:

The results produced by the TPA Green Calculator are entirely based on official Government statistics and simple calculations that use your answers to explain the amount that green taxes and regulations cost you.

Fuel Duty

Institute for Fiscal Studies statistics (XLS) show that Fuel Duty is currently charged at a rate of 50.35 pence per litre.

If your car was registered before 1 March 2001 or you ride a motorbike then we asked for the miles per gallon that your car gets and the number of miles you have driven.  To calculate your Fuel Duty we then carry out the following calculation to adjust for imperial measurements and then work out the amount you have paid:

Fuel Duty (£) = (miles driven/(mpg/4.54609)) * 0.5035


or

Fuel Duty (£) = (miles driven/mpg) * 2.288956


If your car was registered after 1 March 2001 then we use VCA car fuel data to find the metric combined fuel economy, in litres per 100km, of your car and then calculate your Fuel Duty bill:

Fuel Duty (£) = ((miles driven * 1.609344)/100)* metric combined fuel economy * 0.5035


or

Fuel Duty (£) = 0.008103 * miles driven * metric combined fuel economy


Vehicle Excise Duty

There are different Vehicle Excise Duty regimes for different types of vehicle and ages of car.  For cars registered since 1 March 2001, we obtain emissions data from the VCA car fuel data website.

If pre-1 March 2001:
Not over 1,549cc = £120
Over 1,549cc = £185

If post-1 March 2001:
Up to 100 g/km = £0
101-120 g/km = £35
121-150 g/km = £120
151-165 g/km = £145
166-185 g/km = £170
Over 185 g/km and registered before 23 March 2006 = £210
185-225 g/km and registered on or after 23 March 2006 or in 2007 or 2008 = £210
Over 225 g/km and registered on or after 23 March 2006 or in 2007 or 2008 = £400

Motorbikes:
Not over 150cc = £15
151-400cc = £33
401-600cc = £48
Over 600cc = £66

Air Passenger Duty

Air Passenger Duty is a flat charge per flight that varies depending on class of travel and distance:
Air Passenger Duty (£) = (Number of business class and up flights in Europe * 20) +
(Number of business class and up flights outside Europe * 80) +
(Number of economy flights in Europe * 10) +
(Number of economy flights outside Europe * 40)

Regulations pushing up electricity and gas bills

In the document (paragraph 10.5.3) for the Renewable Energy consultation, the Government department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR) set out their estimates of how climate change policies affect energy prices:
"Our current climate change policies (e.g. the Renewables Obligation, EU Emissions Trading Scheme, and the Carbon Emission Reduction Target) make up around 14% of average domestic electricity bills and 3% of average domestic gas bills. On the industrial side, for an average medium-sized consumer, the Renewables Obligation, EU ETS, and Climate Change Levy together contribute around 21% to industrial electricity bills and about 4% to gas bills. We expect that incoming climate change policies such as Better Billing will add further to retail prices, as suppliers pass on policy costs downstream; however, as some of these policies will reduce consumption of energy, the net effect on actual energy bills will be lower."
