Where the CO2 emission figure is not a multiple of five, the figure is rounded down to the next multiple of five to determine the level of the charge.

For a bi-fuel vehicle which has two CO2 emissions figures, the lower of the two figures should be used.

For cars which are too old to have a CO2 emissions figure, you should identify the CO2 band based on engine size. If its cylinder capacity is:

  • If its cylinder capacity is 1,400cc or less, use CO2 band 140 
  • If its cylinder capacity exceeds 1,400cc but does not exceed 2,000cc, use CO2 band 175; 
  • If its cylinder capacity exceeds 2,000cc, use CO2 band 225 or above.
