Rather than a straight percentage off the top, the UK has a straight tax per litre of fuel sold, which also varies depending on its type (i.e. petrol, diesel, natural gas) and use (fuel oil, rebated farm diesel). As of January 2011, the highest taxes are charged on regular petrol, and currently sit at 58p per litre.
