Illinois Resident who powers his car using vegetable oil gets a visit from Illinois Department of Revenue about back taxes he owes in using the recycled vegetable oil as a fuel. The state wants to charge him motor fuel tax and make him get some permits.

David Wetzel wonders why hybrid cars, which rely on electricity and gasoline, are not taxed for the portion of travel when they are running on electrical power. He said he wants to be treated equally by the law.

Don't worry David, they will... Got to get those taxes.

I guess Rod is in favor or gas alternatives as long as the state gets it's cut.
