23 pence for fuel cost (this is including ALL shipping costs to this point)
57.95 fuel duty
2 pence profit for the service station (e.g to pay staff maintain pumps etc)
82.95 net total
16.59 Value added tax @ 20%

Wow I didn't know it was that much, that's ridiculous, they say they "don't know" where the big spends in government, but just as one example...

When I was in the ATC (Air Training Corps), they told us that if we broke a broom in the dormitories, then to let the staff know quickly so they could replace it (as it would cost like £2 to replace), if we didn't, the maintenance company would notice it, and they'd charge something ridiculous like £50 for a single broom.
Also, a cadet broke a light bulb, and that would've cost something like £70 to replace (maintenance company charges...)
