So a brand-new 1.6 Ford Focus qualifies as a 'gas guzzler' according to the E.U. and must reduce its emissions by a whole third in order to remain classed as a 'standard' car. Otherwise - yep, you guessed it - increased taxes are coming our way. This stealth taxing under a 'green' banner is absolutely disgusting. If a brand new car is so way-off the emissions target, what hope do three and four year old cars have? Somebody get me out of this madhouse.
