(1) This table includes data on all motor fuels subject to State motor-fuel taxes except special fuels (fuels other than gasoline and gasohol) used for nonhighway purposes. It is not intended to reflect the amount of fuel used on high- ways. For some States, data are not comparable to prior years due to changes in data analysis and/or improve- ments in reporting procedures. All data are subject to further review and revision.

(2) Export sales and other amounts not consumed as motor fuel in the State have been excluded wherever possible.

(3) Includes Federal use, other public use, certain transit use, nonhighway use where initial exemptions rather than refunds were made, and allowances for evaporation and other losses.

(4)Tax rates are as of December 31, 2012.

(5) In some States, fuel used for specific purposes is taxed or refunded at rates other than the prevailing rates shown in Table MF-121T. In the case of aviation fuel, only aviation gasoline is included.

(6) Vehicles consuming special fuels and paying mileage tax to the Public Utility Commissioner are not required to pay the motor-fuel tax. Fuel volume reported here includes only the volume on which the motor-fuel tax has been paid. For total highway use of special fuels, see table MF-21.
