  • Question About Oklahoma Road Tax

    I remember my father-in-law having to purchase a tax sticker for his LPG powered pickup years ago. He called it a road tax to make up for not paying tax at the pump. Is there a road tax for CNG powered vehicles in Oklahoma? If so, how much is it? Thanks.

    There are federal and state taxes for every gallon of gasoline. I would imagine that most (if not all) states use the state tax for the road infrastructure. If state taxes are not collected at the CNG pumps, then the states try to make up for this by charging a yearly fee on your CNG vehicle.

      There is not a road tax unless you use your vehicle for commercial reasons and you plan on using your fuel as an expense. That being said, us your vehicle for private use only.

        The one thing you can count on guys ... the government is going to get their taxes out of us every way they can. If it's not at the pumps, they'll figure out another way. Of they'll do the pumps & another way. Fun stuff !!!

          I kept researching this fearing an OHP unit pulling up and wanting to know where my tax sticker was. I found this on the following website:

          http://www.afdc.energy.gov/afdc/prog...laws.php/OK/NG

          Alternative Fuel Labeling Requirement
          In lieu of the motor fuel excise tax, Oklahoma imposes an annual flat fee on motor vehicles including passenger automobiles, pickup trucks, vans and heavy-duty vehicles using liquefied petroleum gas, compressed natural gas (CNG), liquefied natural gas (LNG), methanol, or blends of 85% methanol and 15% gasoline (M85). CNG, LNG, methanol, and M85 vehicles weighing less than one ton gross vehicle weight are taxed at a rate of $100 per vehicle per year, and vehicles weighing more than one ton gross vehicle weight are taxed at a rate of $150 per vehicle per year. Vehicles must display a decal issued on a yearly basis by the Oklahoma Tax Commission. (Reference Oklahoma Statutes 68-723)

          Not much room for argument. We are supposed to pay the $100 tax annually even for a Civic GX. I assume at some point they will start enforcing this more vigorously especially as gas tax revenues drop with more fuel efficient vehicles.

            I have copy of the form on my website to apply for the tax sticker http://www.tax.ok.gov/mfforms/198-LGD.pdfwebsite

            It is required in Oklahoma for all CNG vehicles. My son got a warning for not displaying his sticker, it was on my desk.

              The word "website" is making the URL invalid.

                Any thoughts as to what the difference is between the 50.00 fee for Natural Gas and the 100.00 fee for CNG?

                With exception being a difference of 50.00, of course.
