During the past five calendar years the Exchequer raised the following amounts of fuel duty revenue in the UK:

Petrol Diesel
2002 12.8 9.1
2001 13.0 8.8
2000 13.7 9.1
1999 13.6 8.6
1998 12.9 7.9

These figures are published in the Customs and Exercise Hydrocarbon Oils Bulletin, a copy of which is available on the UK trade Information website www.uktradeinfo.com.

The method by which fuel duty revenue is collected does not distinguish between different fuel consumers or geographic areas.
