Gas Guzzler tax?

08-15-2011, 01:48 AM
My manual trans 650 doesn't seem to have the gas guzzler tax on the build sheet, but the build your own on the BMWNA website has it at $1,000. For those few who have already bought your 650 vert, did you pay a gas guzzler tax of $1,000?

Anyone know if the MT version requires the gas guzzler tax?

It's getting close - I now have a VIN and will set up the lease next week; pick up is 9/5/11 in Munich :thumbup:

No gas guzzler tax when I bought mine a month ago. And you're right, you will see it on the BMW build site.

Confirmed - no Gas Guzzler tax on manual trans 650's

I doubt it will be on the automatic either. The tax is based on the Average MPG and with the engines getting such good highway mileage estimates these days it offsets lower city estimates.

Is the gas guzzler tax a one time thing or is it a yearly payment?

One time charge when you buy the car.

I didn't have to pay a gas guzzler... Although I'm not sure how since I'm getting about 12 mpg.

No GGT for me neither and I'm getting 19.5 mpg mixed driving!:D

No tax here, either. And I'm like Southern6er...I'm getting about 12 mpg. I don't keep my foot in the tank, either. But I do only city driving.

I think the build site includes a gas guzzler tax but I didn't pay as well when I got mine. I did pay that tax for the MB SL55 I got a few years back.
