Why do EV owners have to deal with Diesel sale tax? Electric vehicles do not run use them.

Haha, that's exactly why they have to deal with it separately. Everyone has to pay the fuel tax. Gas-engine car owners pay their portion while they refuel the vehicles. Since electric cars do not refuel, govt. applies some extra tax on them.

$100 a year isn't too bad.... the roads need to be paid for somehow.

Is that all the EV owners have to pay? The cumulative total is a good number, $200 million.
