Bingo.

Less gimmick - more inconvenience...but it'll have it most likely, either way. They new the ZL1 was going to get hit with the gas tax no matter what, and they still equipped the 'feature'.

I don't see it being worse than the ZL1, it won't be much better though.

It probably saved buyers a couple hundred bucks by keeping them out of the next GG tax bracket.

What would the gas guzzler tax have been if it were not included in the MSRP?

The GG tax is calculated using a different FE rating than whats printed on the window sticker, and those numbers are rarely released. So I can't say for sure, but the rough conversion is that its combined is the same as the highway mileage for a typical gasoline powered car (hybrids & diesels tend to skew things a bit). The 18.5 to 19.5 bracket for GG is $2100, so thats what I'm thinking it is going to be on the Z/28. Could possibly be lower at 1700, or as much as 2600.
