Re: I've never understood...

The amount of fuel you use is proportionate to the amount of use you make of the roads / the amount of pollution you cause, and it is pretty difficult to avoid paying it.

So, given that if you didn't pay it at the petrol pump, you would have to pay it by some other means, I think fuel tax is a pretty fair tax.
