I have to think that fuel used is a better indicator for gasoline/diesel vehicles (reflects *somewhat* the size of the vehicle and associated wear and tear on the roads).

But it is a growing question, I mean folks have gotten in serious doo-doo for using greasle and not paying road taxes on their fuel. As more vehicles plug into the wall (or otherwise improve efficiency) how do you fund the roads?
