I'm not going to get into the climate change vs emissions debate, but regardless of the arguments and practicalities the UK Govt appears to be making far reaching legislation.

If new sales of petrol and diesel engined cars are to be banned by 2035, vehicle manufacturers will stop producing petrol and diesel powered vehicles for the UK market before that date, because no one will want to be left with stock of UK spec vehicles which they can't sell. Likewise there will be a tipping point for petrol manufacturers, importers and retailers when it is not worth supplying to the UK market.

Perhaps Thor's worst case scenario of a limited supply of suitable fuels at high cost, could actually be the best case scenario. If that's the case, what will it do to classic cars values, and what will it do to the not insignificant industry that supports classic cars?
