  1. Where the CO₂ emissions are 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 the lower of the two CO₂ emissions figures should be used.

    For cars which are too old to have a CO₂ emissions figure identify the CO₂ band by reference to the car’s engine size as follows:

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