Amending a return In stationary machines such as generators, compressors, power saws, and similar equipment. Amending a return For cleaning purposes. Amending a return In forklift trucks, bulldozers, and earthmovers. Amending a return   Generally, this use does not include nonbusiness use of fuel, such as use by minibikes, snowmobiles, power lawn mowers, chain saws, and other yard equipment. Amending a return Example. Amending a return Caroline owns a landscaping business. Amending a return She uses power lawn mowers and chain saws in her business. Amending a return The gasoline used in the power lawn mowers and chain saws qualifies as fuel used in an off-highway business use. Amending a return The gasoline used in her personal lawn mower at home does not qualify. Amending a return Highway vehicle. Amending a return   A highway vehicle is any self-propelled vehicle designed to carry a load over public highways, whether or not it is also designed to perform other functions. Amending a return Examples of vehicles designed to carry a load over public highways are passenger automobiles, motorcycles, buses, and highway-type trucks and truck tractors. Amending a return A vehicle is a highway vehicle even though the vehicle's design allows it to perform a highway transportation function for only one of the following. Amending a return A particular type of load, such as passengers, furnishings, and personal effects (as in a house, office, or utility trailer). Amending a return A special kind of cargo, goods, supplies, or materials. Amending a return Some off-highway task unrelated to highway transportation, except as discussed next. Amending a return Vehicles not considered highway vehicles. Amending a return   Generally, the following kinds of vehicles are not considered highway vehicles for purposes of the credit or refund of fuel taxes. Amending a return Specially designed mobile machinery for nontransportation functions. Amending a return A self-propelled vehicle is not a highway vehicle if all the following apply. Amending a return The chassis has permanently mounted to it machinery or equipment used to perform certain operations (construction, manufacturing, drilling, mining, timbering, processing, farming, or similar operations) if the operation of the machinery or equipment is unrelated to transportation on or off the public highways. Amending a return The chassis has been specially designed to serve only as a mobile carriage and mount (and power source, if applicable) for the machinery or equipment, whether or not the machinery or equipment is in operation. Amending a return The chassis could not, because of its special design and without substantial structural modification, be used as part of a vehicle designed to carry any other load. Amending a return The vehicle must have traveled less than 7,500 miles on public highways during the taxable year. Amending a return Vehicles specially designed for off-highway transportation. Amending a return A vehicle is not treated as a highway vehicle if the vehicle is specially designed for the primary function of transporting a particular type of load other than over the public highway and because of this special design, the vehicle's capability to transport a load over a public highway is substantially limited or impaired. Amending a return To make this determination, you can take into account the vehicle's size, whether the vehicle is subject to licensing, safety, or other requirements, and whether the vehicle can transport a load at a sustained speed of at least 25 miles per hour. Amending a return It does not matter that the vehicle can carry heavier loads off highway than it is allowed to carry over the highway. Amending a return Nontransportation trailers and semitrailers. Amending a return A trailer or semi-trailer is not treated as a highway vehicle if it is specially designed to function only as an enclosed stationary shelter for carrying on a nontransportation function at an off-highway site. Amending a return For example, a trailer that is capable only of functioning as an office for an off-highway construction operation is not a highway vehicle. Amending a return Public highway. Amending a return   A public highway includes any road in the United States that is not a private roadway. Amending a return This includes federal, state, county, and city roads and streets. Amending a return Registered. Amending a return   A vehicle is considered registered when it is registered or required to be registered for highway use under the law of any state, the District of Columbia, or any foreign country in which it is operated or situated. Amending a return Any highway vehicle operated under a dealer's tag, license, or permit is considered registered. Amending a return A highway vehicle is not considered registered solely because a special permit allows the vehicle to be operated at particular times and under specified conditions. Amending a return Dual use of propulsion motor. Amending a return   Off-highway business use does not include any fuel used in the propulsion motor of a registered highway vehicle even though that motor also operates special equipment by means of a power take-off or power transfer. Amending a return It does not matter if the special equipment is mounted on the vehicle. Amending a return Example. Amending a return The motor of a registered concrete-mixer truck operates both the engine and the mixing unit by means of a power take-off. Amending a return The fuel used in the motor to run the mixer is not off-highway business use. Amending a return Use in separate motor. Amending a return   Off-highway business use includes fuel used in a separate motor to operate special equipment, such as a refrigeration unit, pump, generator, or mixing unit. Amending a return If you draw fuel from the same tank that supplies fuel to the propulsion motor, you must figure the quantity used in the separate motor operating the special equipment. Amending a return You may make a reasonable estimate based on your operating experience and supported by your records. Amending a return   You can use devices that measure the miles the vehicle has traveled (such as hubometers) to figure the gallons of fuel used to propel the vehicle. Amending a return Add to this amount the fuel consumed while idling or warming up the motor before propelling the vehicle. Amending a return The difference between your total fuel used and the fuel used to propel the vehicle is the fuel used in the separate motor. Amending a return Example. Amending a return Hazel owns a refrigerated truck. Amending a return It has a separate motor for the refrigeration unit. Amending a return The same tank supplies both motors. Amending a return Using the truck's hubometer, Hazel figures that 90% of the fuel was used to propel the truck. Amending a return Therefore, 10% of the fuel is used in an off-highway business use. Amending a return Fuel lost or destroyed. Amending a return   You cannot treat fuel lost or destroyed through spillage, fire, or other casualty as fuel used in an off-highway business use. Amending a return Export (No. Amending a return 3). Amending a return   Export means fuel transported from the United States with the intention that the fuel remain in a foreign country or possession of the United States. Amending a return Fuel is not exported if it is in the fuel supply tank of a vehicle or aircraft. Amending a return In a boat engaged in commercial fishing (No. Amending a return 4). Amending a return   In a boat engaged in commercial fishing means fuel used in taking, catching, processing, or transporting fish, shellfish, or other aquatic life for commercial purposes, such as selling or processing the catch, on a specific trip basis. Amending a return They include boats used in both fresh and salt water fishing. Amending a return They do not include boats used for both sport fishing and commercial fishing on the same trip.

Amending a return Nonscheduled operations if the seating capacity of the bus is at least 20 adults, not including the driver. Amending a return Vans and similar vehicles used for van-pooling or taxi service do not qualify. Amending a return Available to the general public. Amending a return   This means you offer service to more than a limited number of persons or organizations. Amending a return If a bus operator normally provides charter operations through travel agencies but has buses available for chartering by the general public, this service is available to the general public. Amending a return A bus does not qualify when its operator uses it to provide exclusive services to only one person, group, or organization. Amending a return Also, intercity bus transportation does not include transporting students and employees of schools or intercity transportation in a qualified local bus. Amending a return In a qualified local bus (No. Amending a return 6). Amending a return   In a qualified local bus means fuel used in a bus meeting all the following requirements. Amending a return It is engaged in furnishing (for compensation) intracity passenger land transportation available to the general public.

Amending a return It is under contract with (or is receiving more than a nominal subsidy from) any state or local government to furnish the transportation. Amending a return Intracity passenger land transportation. Amending a return   This is the land transportation of passengers between points located within the same metropolitan area. Amending a return It includes transportation along routes that cross state, city, or county boundaries if the routes remain within the metropolitan area. Amending a return Under contract. Amending a return   A bus is under contract with a state or local government only if the contract imposes a bona fide obligation on the bus operator to furnish the transportation. Amending a return More than a nominal subsidy. Amending a return   A subsidy is more than nominal if it is reasonably expected to exceed an amount equal to 3 cents multiplied by the number of gallons of fuel used in buses on subsidized routes. Amending a return A company that operates its buses along subsidized and unsubsidized intracity routes may consider its buses qualified local buses only when the buses are used on the subsidized intracity routes.
