Diesel tax?

Considering premium fuel to diesel pricing and service costs it really opened my eyes to how real the diesel tax does hit the pocket yes.

Running costs of a properly maintained diesel here is much more than the average petrol car in my experience. I talking working 7days a week doing at least 800kms each week.

Even at many car wash places they charge u more for a van compared to a car. Why? Van has more flat panels and easier wash procedure to me. Being straight out of school with a y11 drop low, rims, music and constant fibreglass flare kit fixing when I started my grind. Switched to a stock d40 and the diesel maintenance every 5000 - 6500kms is near double the cost compared to prior. (Oils, 2 fuel filters etc)

I used to keep track when I had the time, it adds up. That's why I'll always envy those 2.7gas Hilux lol.

yup, diesel only made sense because the fuel was dirt cheap
Diesel pickups have higher maintenance costs, and their fuel mileage is horrible

One of whom, allegedly, is a big radio owner and big time water man.

So who benefitted under Tantie Kams from the diesel racket?

This was long before UNC was ever born. Their operation was up and running in the late 1980s
