Attachment maria krautzberger brought again in the debate for the future of drive technology again an abolition of the diesel privilege at the tax. This "must be on the prud," krautzberger said at the weekend of the rheinische post. "Dieseler pay per liter of fuel 18.4 cents less than for gasoline. The state costs this subsidy now 7.8 billion euros per year, good three and a half billions of which car use."

Even with deduction of high car taxes for diesel cars, the approximately one and a half billion euros are from the state for self-cords per year.
