  1. What is the reasoning behind such a rule? If I can earn some money for the crazy prices that petrol is at now, and most politicians stacking up wealth, I think we should be allowed to have the freedom of what we put on our cars.
    Actually 50% or more vehicles will need to go off road then as dealers tend to advertise themselves on the cars they sell by usually having a small sticker.
    I am not completely happy with this rule. If so it should be implemented well.
