Dont forget the sales tax (8% in San Diego County and higher in other counties)that is applied on the exise tax.
I do a lot of shopping in SD to avoid the 9% sales tax where I live in El Cajon. I can't always do that as the tax rate for larger purchases is based on your address. I paid an extra $200 in taxes on my car. That in addition to the sales tax already paid simply because I live in EC.

I filled up at Washington & El Cajon Blvd for most of the time I was living out in Rancho San Diego. The United Oil at Clairemont Drive & Clairemont Mesa Blvd is my current default. I keep my F150 parked except for rainy days. The Harley Fat Bob gives me much better mileage. Reducing my commute from 60 miles round trip to 15 miles round trip helped too.
The only time I really noticed the sales tax difference was on books from Borders at Fletcher Parkway vs Mission Valley. That's no longer an issue.
