Hybrid tax

How many of hybrid drivers live in states that punish you for owning a hybrid. Ohio charging me 100 dollars more plus my 37.00 registration fee starting this year. Apparently I don't use burn enough fuel to make our govenor happy.

It's because the politicians don't have the spine to raise fuel taxes.

Now, is Ohio applying this fee to the latest Ram pick up, it is now a mild hybrid?

Which vehicle do you have that's getting the $100 surcharge? I can see how they came up with the idea but have no idea how the $100 compares to what John Doe pays in fuel taxes through the pump. It may be a bargain or it may be a ripoff.

If it's $100 a month, that's a bit unfair, if it's $100 a year, I wouldn't even raise an eyebrow.

I got the impression it was a one-off charge when you register the vehicle.

I took it to mean $100 a year on top of the usual registration fee but could be mistaken.

Less than $2 a week? No one would complain about that surely?! Not when we pay something like $3.40 just in tax on a gallon of our fuel.

In the UK you only register a car when you first buy it.

In Ohio I will pay a registration fee of 137. Per year for my hybrid if I bought it new this month I would pay a prorated registration fee plus 100. And went my plates expire in July I pay my registration fee of 37. and another 100 dollars hybrid fee because it is not prorated.
