Motorists will not be the only ones hurt by a sharp rise in the price of fuel, hauliers will also be hit hard, according to the Freight Transport Association.

Last week’s good news that fuel duty, currently standing at 57.95ppl is to see another freeze has been effectively cancelled out by the news that the price of fuel is set to rise.

“Any benefits gained by another duty freeze will be negated by a rise in the price of fuel,” said RHA chief executive Richard Burnett. “Road haulage operators have to pass any additional fuel costs on to the customer – they have no choice. An increase in the price of fuel will have a damaging effect on the price of goods and of course the industry that plays such a key role in their delivery.”

But don’t despair. By fitting Mercury’s Dual Fuel System to your Euro 5 and 6 trucks, you can save up to 15% on your fuel bills and also significant greenhouse gas and pollutant emissions in the process. Return on investment can be as low as 10 months, but usually 12 to 16 months is typical.
