Are they not road based tax exempt?

No they just pay Vehicle Excise Duty at the band A rate which is 0. Using exemption from Vehicle Excise Duty "as a rule" would mean that you could use red diesel in a 40+ year old classic car as they are 'exempt', rather than banded.

The genny is not powering the vehicle on the road.






As i said that's why our laws depend on the courts and legal system, it constantly is updated by court cases to take into account changes such as this. Just try and not be the poor person who ends up being the test case Sad


You miss understood.

I mean on the fuel not the RFL.

The number plate on that trailer doesn't look like its a UK registration to me - in which case all concern about red diesel and  the road tax is probably irrelevant.  Many off griders appear to have a backup generator just in case so it really can't be considered any differenty. But what about the vehicle towing the trailer with the generator, that doesn't look like a EV to me (though I am no expert on the differnt models) - so dd it use dino juice just to get the genny to the EV???

We are not talking about the vehicle in the pic.

It was just what prompted the question.

I would say the little beemer has a German reg plate. . the trailer on left could be German or Swedish, judging by Number plate format and colour.

I would have expected the Germans to be good honest Europeans and not use red diesel to power the EV Charger angel

(Similar argument a while back regarding Reefer trailer, with their diesel refridgerators running on red diesel as opposed to non rebated white diesel.)

Nickel2 came up with a cracking idea of rescuing flat ev's.

The main reason why EV run out of power is not through human error, but down to the poor state of existing charge points/infrastructure as they're poorly maintained and out of order for months.

Charging stations also get blocked by ICE car's, inconsiderate hybrid owners and some EV drivers who leave their cars all day in charging bays not plugged in or long after elapsed charging.

I don't know about other makes, but Nissan Leaf's are supported by Nissan, in that if they breakdown or run out of charge, Nissan will pick them up and take the car to the nearest working charger or Nissan workshop with no rescue charge.
