Question regarding ULEZ

Mine is late 2017

Weird. I was under the assumption that you were unable to register a non euro 6 after the end of 2016. Perhaps your van is one of the early euro 6s that had the egr in overdrive to meet the regs without the adblue. We have early sprinters at work on a 18 plate that don't have seem to have a adblue level on the dash (may or may not be adblue) whilst all the facelift 58 plates vans onwards do definitely have adblue.
 
The problem is that there is little or no national publicity about these clean air zones. If you're travelling to somewhere you haven't visited for a while, are you meant to google it beforehand to see if it has a CAZ, and what the rules are? The rules seem to vary across the country.
I wonder why 😎
 
Personally, I don't think that ULEZ is a bad idea as such, the intention is to drive away harmful NOx emissions from busy city centres where the majority of the population lives and works. NOx is less of an issue around the countryside and in rural areas where it disperses quickly and does not really get a chance to harm people.
I think ULEZ is an awful idea but I agree that busy city centres should be cleaner and they eventually will be.

Where I live we’re not far from some beautiful countryside. Unfortunately it’s being concreted over and developed for housing!!
Oddly enough it’s the mayor of London that overrules our local councils decisions. Funny old world innit?
 
The ULEZ data base isn't always correct.
It would be churlish to point out their error here and embarrass them, beside the hourly cost they so often cite to correct it I'm sure would exceed their revenue. It's mutually advantageous to enjoy the oversight.

Just check the .gov data base regularly, and as said take a screen shot for the day you have been into the Smoke.

The Mayor has a strategy of increasing the homes stock in the Capital at all costs, even when it means overruling local councils, see for example:

He make a habit of it. This is near where we live.

I find it a real nightmare because I don't often drive into cities. I had to go to Newcastle last year to see a clinic about getting a heart monitor. I didn't know anything about ULEZ or CAZ or whatever it is called there.

I researched the night before and was shocked to find this has one of those zone but I couldn't find a definitive map to see whether I would be crossing roads within the zone or not, to reach my destination. I had to follow my route on google street view just to be sure.

I just find it so complicated because you have to research every time you plan to visit a different city.
