Motorists in a 'very difficult position' after red diesel ban – will 'take a hit on costs'


Any vehicles, machines or appliances which are found to be running unlawfully on rebated fuel and red diesel could be seized.

However, for many industries affected by the restrictions, this may not be immediately possible.

Many who require larger vehicles do not have electric substitutes and will need to rely on petrol and diesel to continue.

Operating costs are expected to rise by around 15 percent, with companies facing additional fuel expenses of between £100,000 to £400,000 per year, according to Research Management Association Scotland.
