There very much is an added cost to process online payments. That cost differs on whether it's ACH or credit card based. There very much is a higher processing(whether higher than paying labor is hard to say) cost of credit/debit. Most businesses I deal with these days only charge extra if you're using a credit/debit card. They don't often charge for using ACH.

There are a plenty of non-turbo 1.5-2l engines out there. Chevy Aveo being the example I'm personally familiar with. The oil change requirements are, when the engine says to or once a year. I am getting around 12,000mi between changes. I get ~35mpg on the highway and 25 in the city. About the only downside you provided that fits is the towing and the engine life, and even that if you double the life expectancy you stated. Most info I can find shows it shouldn't be too difficult for me to get 200+k on my engine, with proper care.

I'm not going to argue whats better, because they have different use cases. I'm just making a point that it's not as bad as you're trying to claim.

The side that people aren't talking about is that if your comments get posted on a billboard they're saying, "You know you did it, and so do we." Given that a lot of this crap stems from people feeling relatively anonymous on the internet, it could impact the number of offenders. I'm not saying it'll deter everyone, but given the potential costs of directly pursuing each offender, it may not be a terrible place to start.
