    Why do we have to pay a gas guzzler tax on the Hellcats.

    Any chance it would be reduced now that oil is below $50.00 per barrel?

    Don't we end up paying more tax because we in theory purchase more fuel?

    If anything the gas tax should be on the putt putt cars and hybrids so they pay their share in road upkeep.

    ( yes I am against a GPS tracking system in my car for gov tax purposes or any other )

    Please chime in with you 2 cents worth.

    Well the good news is that Dodge included it in the price, I thought that was great. The reason it gets hit with it is due to the City MPG rating which is pretty low. I don't think there should be a GG tax at all, but I don't make the rules. :(

    The gas guzzler tax is not only for the extra gas you use but the harm you put into the environment.

    what harm? burnt rubber? how much harm to the environment does the Pruis make since it travels around the world and back to be manufactured. Then what do you do with the batteries after its old throw them in a landfill?

    sounds to me like somebody believes in "global warming" still

    not ragging on you "CubeMan" just a rant in general about the stupid world we live in.

    not much common sense anymore

    show me where or how the tax saves the environment?

    its just a gooberment money maker. Tax like this is nothing more then the Gooberment taking away your right to buy a muscle car then selling it back to you at a steep price

    I guess I'm confused. The tax exists, we know why, we can't change it...nobody here drives a Prius I don't think... I mean it is what it is. I think most everyone on here is in agreement that it sucks, but I don't see why trying to prove or disprove how the tax saves the environment (it prob doesn't) will help. It's a forum for a 700hp muscle car, not gonna find many tree huggers here. :)

    Also, based on the weather here in TN today, I'm not buying the whole global warming thing (and never have tbh).

    Just asking for explanation, agree we all must have accepted it because we still bought the cars. It is part of your 707 hp ride and its on the window sticker.

    What I don't get is that my SRT8 gets better gas milage than most pick-ups, yet they don't pay GG tax.... What gives?
