But although the measures will leave the average Ford Mondeo owner up to £4.20 better-off every time he fills up, there is a sting in the tail for drivers. Two hefty fuel duty rises are planned for next year.

New environmental regulations designed to reduce harmful emissions from ships could significantly raise the cost of cruising, it emerged this week.
The new rulings, which have been approved by the International Maritime Organization (IMO), will force cruise lines to cut the level of sulphur in their fuel when they are within 200 miles of shore – from the up to 4.5 per cent currently permitted to 1 per cent in 2012 and to 0.1 per cent in 2015. The low-sulphur zones, known as Emission Control Areas, came into force in the Baltic and North Sea this month. By 2012 they will be introduced in North America, where the impact on cruising is expected to be greatest.
