    What might well happen is that HMRC will begin opportunistically looking into the benefits in kind classification for cars that were attributed the wrong emission levels. They may then re-classify the payment due from the user and the Road fund licence rate retrospectively. When circa 60% of vehicles sold new in the UK are fleet and twenty percent of all cars sold are from the VW stable plus ultimately they end up in the used market, this could be as big or bigger than PPi.
