I'd rather pick up that tab sooner or later, thinking about the environment at the same time.
With the loss of the ability of taxing fuel I wonder where governments will make up for the loss in revenue.
My next car will be a petrol or diesel, the car after that I hope will be electric. Tesla or not, but at least 500 miles autonomy.
