Gas Taxes
See this doesn't make any sense. Diesel has a lower tax, both federal and state (21-18 TN, 18-10(?) Federal), and some how they are within 11%?

I would enjoy the having to fill up less, not if it cost more though. Neat Idea that I hadn't given alot of consideration to. I get around 400 miles out of a tank, but fill up only when I go out of town(weekly commute is 30 miles or less)

I also don't have any engine life complaints because mine is still fine at 230K mi.(gas)
