Can the supplier of diesel dictate the split between domestic & propulsion ? Also will this split end when we leave the EU?

The situation is not 100% clear. HMRC are clear that it is up to the BOATER to declare the split and all the seller has to do is to record it plus whatever HMRC want to identify their boater. An incorrectly declared split will result in action against the boater not the seller. However the price you may see at a suppliers is technically only an offer to treat, which means negotiate so if the seller will only sell with a given split then it is a contractual matter between you and them. You can either accept the terms of their contract or not. On the second point I think the only answer at the moment is who knows. Your guess is no better than mine or anyone else's. I suspect that is we do eventually leave the EU rescinding the present arrangements will be way down any government's list. In my view a future government outside the EU might be so strapped for cash we might end up paying road diesel prices anyway.
