    View online versionPlease forward this email to all your friends, family and colleagues to get 100,000 signatures to this ePetition https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/170006 Hundreds of MPs back our call for transparent pricing at the pumps, but to make this happen we need your help!
    “Everybody thinks an independent Pump Watch body to oversee forecourt fuel pricing is long overdue. Drivers need fair honest and transparent prices at the pumps. Only those with vested interests would disagree.” Quentin Willson
     Help MPs and FairFuelUK secure 'PumpWatch'  Please help us to Set up an Independent Pump-Watch body to monitor and regulate vehicle fuel pricing.

    You may be surprised to learn that how much we pay to fill up our cars vans and trucks isn’t regulated at all. And having no government watchdog or independent pricing body means that how, when and why forecourt prices rise and fall is a closely guarded secret. We think that’s wrong!

    The FairFuelUK Campaign’s 1.3 million supporters along with hundreds of MPs and their constituents want this to change.
    We’re recommending an independent Pump-Watch body to ensure everybody understands how road fuels are priced and that the 37 million drivers in the UK get the fairest and most transparent deal possible. So, if you can’t understand why fuel prices rise almost overnight but take weeks to go down, please sign this E petition.

    Background: In last 3 weeks’ diesel, base supply cost is down 11.66%, the published wholesale cost is down 4.07%, YET at the pumps as to what we pay when we fill up it is UP 3.81% - Similarly for petrol: base cost down 9.84%, wholesale down 3.42%, BUT at the pumps it's UP 3.20%
     Sign Up for 'PumpWatch'  We have the support of many MPs who are fighting on your behalf regarding the benefits to the UK economy in the last 5 years’ of our hard fought for fuel duty freezes and now the need for a real cut in duty. As importantly, because of your fantastic support of the FairFuelUK Campaign, they are also putting our case for a new watchdog to police pricing at the pumps. PumpWatch

    MPs such as Charlie Elphicke, Maria Caulfield, Rob Flello, Drew Hendry, Jason McCartney, Sammy Willson, Danny Kinahan, Angus McNeil, Fiona Bruce, John Stevenson, Gordon Henderson, Peter Aldous and many more from all parties support FairFuelUK’s fight for lower fuel taxation and transparent pump pricing.
     We try not to send emails out too frequently and only when necessary. We are a non-profit making campaign group. You are receiving this email because within the last 6 years this email address has been signed up to support the fight for lower pump prices through our website www.fairfueluk.com, or has taken part in previous on-line surveys, or purchased a sticker or has requested information about the campaign itself. We take it very seriously the security of your contact details and never pass such information onto third parties. That s guranteed
    FairFuelUK is the Nationally Recognised Award Winning Campaign fighting for lower petrol & diesel prices and is widely accredited with stopping £70 billion of fuel duty and VAT being levied on businesses and the public in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 . FairFuelUK is supported by 1,384,000 members of the public, the 20,000 haulage businesses in the RHA , FTA and the Association of Pallet Networks - Over 140 MPs have also declared their support for the FairFuelUK Campaign. The Campaign's primary focuses are to see a significant cut in Fuel Duty (with VAT the total tax approximates to 66% of the pump price), more pricing receipt transparency and for petrol and diesel to be of equal levels of pricing at the pumps.
    We only send emails out when there is a key event in the campaigning cycle such as the Budget, Autumn Statement, APPG Meeting, Lobbying Event that warrant contacting you for support. Without your help it is harder to convince the decision makers in Westminster to act favourably on your behalf. They do listen to you!
     
    The Camping and Caravanning Club has joined forces with Practical Caravan and Practical Motorhome magazines to support the industry-leading annual Caravan and Motorhome Owner Satisfaction surveys.
    They welcome feedback from anyone who has bought, owned and toured in a new or used caravan or motorhome since 1 January 2013. The surveys are now sponsored by Club Care Insurance, the insurance provider to The Camping and Caravanning Club.
    Club members and other caravan and motorhome enthusiasts are invited to complete the 2017 surveys, with the results announced in January 2017, ready to help campers plan for the season ahead. Both surveys close on 16 October 2016.
    The results will also be published in full in the March 2017 issue of Practical Caravan and April 2017 issue of Practical Motorhome, in the Club’s own February magazine and online at each of the three partners’ websites.
    The surveys are long established and their results are highly regarded by caravanners, motorcaravanners, dealers and manufacturers.
    The Motorhome Owner Satisfaction Survey was launched in 2004, and the Caravan version followed in 2012. Over the years, tens of thousands of caravan and motorhome owners have reported in depth on their experiences of buying, owning and using their outfit.
    The results are essential reading for anyone considering buying a caravan or motorhome, new or used, whether from a dealer or private sale. The information and league tables of the best performing brands and dealers will be made available to all. It also provides valuable data for caravan and motorhome manufacturers to make use of when planning and improving their own products. 
    Robert Louden MBE, the Club’s Director General, said: “The Club is delighted to join forces with Practical Caravan and Practical Motorhome for the 2017 Owner Satisfaction Surveys. The results will help holidaymakers buy smarter in future, and help manufacturers improve the quality and reliability of their products. Along with our existing Tent Owner Satisfaction Survey, they will add to the authoritative advice we’re able to provide members on all forms of camping.”
    Alastair Clements, Group editor of Practical Caravan and Practical Motorhome, said: “For more than a decade, the Owner Satisfaction Surveys have been helping consumers to buy better, and pushing up quality across the board. And its results can be trusted because they are based entirely on the opinions and experience of real caravanners and motorcaravanners, in the real world. We are delighted to join forces with The Camping and Caravanning Club to make these awards the best in the business.”
    Nigel Coppen, Client Director at Club Care Insurance, said: “We’re delighted to extend sponsorship of the Club’s Tent Owner Satisfaction Survey to caravans and motorhomes – the results will help people research their next purchase with confidence, and peace of mind in the brands they choose.
    “We at Club Care are passionate about providing campers with peace of mind when they’re relaxing on holiday, and that’s why Club Care Insurance products are designed by tent, caravan and motorhome enthusiasts for like-minded people.”
