Stick someone else with your tax bill. Of course you wouldn't. That would be a severe lack of integrity.

From my understanding the commercial trucks are exempt from the tax, thus no additional tax.

They are not exempt. Their tax is paid thru a different process but it's higher than non commercial use.

Valero is the only company to limit their ethanol to 5% as far as we have been able to determine. Boy it's getting complicated out there.

I believe you have ETHANOL confused with BIODIESEL.
(Gasoline is often a blend of 10% ethanol and 90% gasoline).
However, B20 Diesel is a blend of 20% biodiesel, (made from vegetable oil, animal fats and/or or recycled restaurant greases)....and 80% petroleum diesel.

No, in Oregon, the state fuel tax is 30 cents per gallon. Truck taxes are a completely different matter and that doesn't occur at the pump. If you're a trucker there is a weight-mile tax that is separate from any fuel taxes. From what I've found, the price at an open (not a strictly commercial) truck pump and an auto lane are the same.

You may live in Oregon, and it may not be a tax (OK, PUC), BUT you WILL pay approximately 30 cents more per gallon at any station that fills commercial vehicles. I pass these stations nearly every day, and they have multiple diesel prices....one for autos and one for commercial trucks, and many also now play the cash/credit game. Call it what you want, but you will pay more.

What CarlAda said. Yes, stations that cater to commercial trucks post multiple prices and the auto price is 30 cents/gal more than the commercial truck ("PUC") price, but that higher auto price is generally the same as if you bought diesel at the regular auto/pickup lanes. Legally, yo can't buy fuel at the PUC price unless you have a PUC card to show you are paying weight-mile tax. The other exception is that you can get a discount for farm vehicles. It might be kind of hard to convince them your MH is a farm vehicle, used only off-road, though.
