The Cost of Environmental Friendliness

In Today's Article we read of a guy in North Carolina who modified his car to use vegetable oil as fuel. So, here's a guy who's trying to reduce his dependence on fossil fuels, and do us all a favor.

So, what happened? Got got fined by the state for $1000 and is expected to get another fine from the feds for avoiding motor fuel tax.

Does this not seem right to anyone else? It seems to me he should have gotten a tax break from the government over and above not paying the fuel tax. Not t'other way 'round.
