    My Google fu is weak.
    Going to Kempton pk at the w/e and if I take a wrong turn I'm in the LEZ.
    Unfortunately we're 3.8t gvw so fall foul of the maybe/maybe not rules.
    Apparently if we were under 3.5t all would be well.
    2.7l cdi Merc engine btw

    The best thing you could do is remove the engine, run it up until it gets really hot and then stuff it up Mayor Khan's ring piece

    Oh...by the way. A number of motorcyclists have discovered that ULEZ isn’t accurate or rather there is a loophole. A few went onto Honda and got the exact figures.

    You'd first have to remove his head.

    Thanks Korky.

    Mine allegedly fails - I have written to Honda and hope to get good news. Not that I am likely to ride it into London, but it would be nice to shove one up Comrade Khan.

    Well I've ebayed a similar vehicle with the same motor, used the reg on the LEZ checker and I CAN wander into the outer edge of Laaaaaahhhhhdun. Probably still get a ticket tho.

    Should be fine in the LEZ with that, the ULEZ will be a different matter.
