I read on the Chrysler 300C SRT-8 FORUM website that there is a $2,000 "guzzler" tax for this new model (425 Hemi). I've never read anything about "guzzler" tax on our SRT-10's??

Any comments?

Gas Guzzler Tax

The Energy Tax Act of 1978 established a Gas Guzzler Tax on the sale of new model year vehicles whose fuel economy fails to meet certain statutory levels. The gas guzzler tax applies only to cars (not trucks) and is collected by the IRS.

The tax does not depend on your actual on-the-road mpg, which may be more or less than the EPA published value. The purpose of the Gas Guzzler Tax is to discourage the production and purchase of fuel inefficient vehicles. The amount of any applicable Gas Guzzler Tax paid by the manufacturer will be disclosed on the automobile's fuel economy label (the window sticker on new cars).

GAS GUZZLER TAX
Unadjusted MPG(combined)*
Tax
at least 22.5
No tax
at least 21.5, but less than 22.5
$1000
at least 20.5, but less than 21.5
$1300
at least 19.5, but less than 20.5
$1700
at least 18.5, but less than 19.5
$2100
at least 17.5, but less than 18.5
$2600
at least 16.5, but less than 17.5
$3000
at least 15.5, but less than 16.5
$3700
at least 14.5, but less than 15.5
$4500
at least 13.5, but less than 14.5
$5400
at least 12.5, but less than 13.5
$6400
less than 12.5
$7700


You can see, if there were this tax on our trucks, then we would be paying an extra $7700

The HEMI C and Dodge Magnum HEMI are OK and are not hit with this tax, but the SRT8 300 and the SRT8 Charger and Magnum will be.

I checked this tax out before I bought the SRT and will tell you that if it cost me 7K more this ride, it woould have stayed at the dealer :(

I would have then gone ape **** on my HEMI Ram (S/C etc)
