    Hi

    I have got the above, but am confused to why I am paying £175 road tax whilst others with the same engine (PD 140) are paying roughly £140.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    what year is it, also is your automatic as dsg ones tend to be in a higher tax band.

    The CO2 emissions from a DSG TDI 140 2006 is 159 g/km, meanwhile the manual one is 143 g/km. This pushes its VED band from F to G, hence the higher road tax price.

    It depends on the year.
    Every so often the emission
    Levels of these engines improve
    So the tax breakers falls.
    An equivalent of your engine in 2011 might even qualify for the 30£ tax band.

    The 1.8 tfsi MY09 have always been tax band G the ones build from 2007 - 2009 are tax band H.

    The 2.0 tdi 140 MY10 tax is £30 now IIRC.
