§ 600.513-81 Gas Guzzler Tax.
(a)
(1) The provisions of this section do not apply to passenger automobiles exempted from Gas Guzzler Tax assessments by the Energy Tax Act of 1978 and regulations promulgated thereunder by the Internal Revenue Service. However, the manufacturer of an exempted passenger automobile may, in his discretion, label such vehicles in accordance with the provisions of this section.
(2) Vehicles produced by a manufacturer that has been granted an alternate tax rate schedule by the Secretary of the Treasury shall be labeled with the applicable tax determined under any such alternate tax schedule.
(3) For 1980 and later model year passenger automobiles, the combined general label model type fuel economy
value used for Gas Guzzler Tax assessments shall be calculated in accordance with the following equation, rounded to the nearest 0.1 mpg:
FEadj = Fe[((0.55×ag×c) (0.45×c) (0.5556×ag) 0.4487) / ((0.55×ag) 0.45)] IWg
Where:
FEadj=Fuel economy value to be used for determination of gas guzzler tax assessment rounded to the nearest 0.1 mpg.
FE=Combined model type fuel economy calculated in accordance with § 600.207, rounded to the nearest 0.0001 mpg.
ag=Model type highway fuel economy, calculated in accordance with § 600.207, rounded to the nearest 0.0001 mpg divided by the model type city fuel economy calculated in accordance with § 600.207, rounded to the nearest 0.0001 mpg. The quotient shall be rounded to 4 decimal places.
c=2.501×10−2 for the 1980 model year
c=2.184×10−2 for the 1981 model year
c=9.260×10−3 for the 1982 model year
c=1.435×10−2 for the 1983 model year
c=1.420×10−2 for the 1984 model year
c=1.490×10−2 for the 1985 model year
c=1.300×10−3 for the 1986 and later model years
IWg = (9.2917×10−3 × SF3IWCG × FE3IWCG) − (3.5123×10−3 × SF4ETWG × FE4IWCG)
Note:
Any calculated value of IW less than zero shall be set equal to zero.
SF3IWCG=The 3000 lb. inertia weight class sales in the model type divided by the total model type sales. The quotient shall be rounded to 4 decimal places.
SF4ETWG=The 4000 lb. equivalent test weight sales in the model type divided by the total model type sales, the quotient shall be rounded to 4 decimal places.
FE3IWCG=The 3000 lb. inertia weight class base level combined fuel economy used to calculate the model type fuel economy rounded to the nearest 0.0001 mpg.
FE4IWCG=The 4000 lb. inertia weight class base level combined fuel economy used to calculate the model type fuel economy rounded to the nearest 0.0001 mpg.
(b) This paragraph applies to 1981 model year vehicles.
