    The highway use tax is-will be used to compensate for losses in the gasoline tax as we convert to electric cars.

    You are just stating your opinion here.

    What would be a better way to achieve the status quo?

    It is stating pretty much what I said.

    You said consumers would pay more and I asked you what would be a fairer way to transition.

    The consumer pays for everything...... including every ideologically-driven bad decision that activists can make.

    I assume this is regarding the VMT.

    What is the problem with a VMT? It used to be all done with the fuel tax. Do you think that electric car drivers should get a free pass and let the gasoline taxes pay for them?

    It's going to be less than 15 for sure..I am going to go with 11 to 13.
    About 25 percent is lost as heat with the smaller charger..so charge rate about a about 1kw an hr give or few percentage points..If I remember right 240v is about 4 to 5 times faster for Tesla which is doable for charging after you get off work and plug in for morning

    I'm am curious as to what the power companies think of this. This will very well but them out of business

    After enduring the past few California wind driven fire storms (was evacuated @ 01:00 a year ago next week with the Woosely Fire) that overwhelmingly were caused by power companies, the end may be near for business as usual with power companies.

    Something's gotta give.
    Less dependency on these large monopolies would be a good thing.
