    Engine Displacement Tax

    So what do you guys think of this little jewel senate bill? Number 6900, it states that any engine with more than 1.9L will be taxed extra on your registration yearly. For instance, a 3.5L is about 300 dollars, and a 5.7L would be about 500 some bucks extra YEARLY! It's been passed in Washington, and they're trying to get it passed in other states. This is gonna really suck for those V8s now. I can't find a good link to the article about it though but I've been hearing about it on the radio. Even my little 2.2L will be charged like an extra 100 bucks a year because of this if it's passed here.

    Well ****, I've been considering trading in my 2002 2500HD with the 6.0L in on one with a big block - man, I'd be screwed! What about these guys with road tractors? dump trucks?
    Of all the roads you take in life, make sure some of them are dirt.

    Oh, well as for dump trucks, government vehicles aren't charged this tax :P How convenient right? The only good part about it all is that the money goes to fund transportation.

    Yeah just found that:

    Looks like it's a Washington State bill, and it doesn't appear to have passed yet, it's only gone to committees so far:

    So if you live in Washington State CALL YOUR SENATORS, time to stop this before it does become law.

    So even a lot of the new hybrids would be getting hit...

    First off, it's a dumb idea. Second off, I can't believe the limit they're thinking of is 1.9L--that's like a motorcycle engine.

    Re: Engine Displacement Tax

    Lol my thoughts exactly, who the F*** came up with 1.9L, there are so many 2.0-2.4L engines out there who are gonna get dinged for that, it's so stupid. I just feel sorry if it ever happens for all those V8s out there.
