Well, if you crunch some numbers...
Charitably, the highest tax group of cars will do what... 20mpg? Given an average of 12,000 miles per year, that's 600 gallons. So that's 2,727 litres of petrol at £1.17 for Super = £3,190 per year on fuel.
It's all dwarfed by depreciation anyway...
EDIT: Actually, tax is only a grand in the first year. After that it's currently £450. Seriously, though - you'd be paying £40k plus on an object that'll be worth £16k in three years.
