UK Chancellor Gordon Brown has rejiggered car tax fees that'll go into effect for all cars purchased after Wednesday, charging vehicles with the highest carbon-dioxide emissions up to 200 quid, while cutting the taxes on those with the lowest-emissions.

Forget filling the Jeep's tank, just go get tanked yourself.
