You MUST buy the insurance and there's a huge tax included in the price of fuel.

yep, officialy road trax is included in fuel price, but the insurance costs depend (or at least they did depend for years) also on the "litraż" (volume of the engine in litres, I don't know the proper English word)

I'm not sure how much you pay insurance in Poland, there are 2 main kinds:
OC (odpowidzialność cywilna) - obligatory (personal liability). Even without any accidents, when the Police stop you and you don't have it, you're in troubles.

AC (autocasco) - not obligatory, covers your expenses in case you did the damage to your own car or when it gets stolen/broken. It used to be 10% (each year) of the car's value. Of course most drivers, who didn't have accidents, have reductions, even up to 60% (so you pay only 4% of the car'svalue), but I'm afraid you may have troubles with receiving such reductions, ask other foreigners in Poland.

I don't think you can register a car in Poland if you don't have the proof of your residence there.
