Not on the M3 Coupe!I have my final bill of sale and there is nothing there for the green tax.The fuel tax in Ontario is only $250.An Audi RS4 for comparision is $1000 & $1200 FYI.

Thanks! That confirms my reserch that the m3's combined fuel consumsion of 12.8L/100km falls just short of the 13L/100km when the green tax kicks in at $1000.

I just ordered my M3 coupe and got hit with a $1200 gas tax. Is that correct? I notice one of you only got hit for $250.

I was in the BMW Toronto showroom on Saturday looking at an M3 coupe on the showroom floor. The sticker for the car showed a $1,000 gas guzzler tax in the lease cost calculation.

Well i picked my car this afternoon and confirmed the $250 fuel consumption tax and no green levy.If there is a mistake on the taxes I guess I could end up cutting a cheque later,but of course I usually end up doing that every April anyways

The official highway milege is 9.7l/100kms in Canada which means $250 Gas tax in Ontario and no Green Tax.That is official from BMW Canada.

I did some research, as I have been charged the $1200 gas tax fee or green fee. I called two dealerships in Ontario yesterday and got two different answers. So I went on the Governmant Green tax site and here is what it said.

The tax is based on a weighted average of L/100Kms. You take 55% of the city rating and 45% of the highway rating and calculate the average. If it is over 13 L/100kms and under 14, there is a $1000 green fee levied.

Based on my calculations using U.S. fuel ratings (I have not seen any for Canada yet), the M3 Coupe falls in that range and therefore, is subject to the $1000 fee.

Here is the link: http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/agency/budg.../excise-e.html

The CDN ratings are quite a bit higher than the US ones at least in highway rating.In the Canadian M3 brochure that I just got this AM it shows 9.7L/100 for highway,but I cannot recall the city rating

Ok here is the official info.

BMW M3 C 4.0 / 8 M6+ Z $2560 2560 15.3 9.7 134 782 6144


So that works out the factored average of 12.78 L/100 so there is no green Tax on a M3.

Thanks. I just called my dealership and they gave me the same numbers you just did. Therefore, I should not be charged the green tax. They are going to get back to me.

I agree. Do not pay. I am waiting to hear back from my dealer and will be very annoyed if they say I have to pay. If so, I will escalate to BMW Canada Customer service. Will let you know what happens.

They are quite wrong based on the Transport Canada published figures.

Okay, so here is the latest. I called BMW Canada customer service directly. They took my question, investigated it and just called me back.
Direct from BMW Canada - M3 Coupes are NOT subject to the green tax, only the M3 Convertible is.
Just left a message with my dealer to have my invoice reduced.
