That was my first thought too. I ran the numbers based on the summary and a 12k mi/yr average. With a car that gets 30 mpg, the annual tax comes to $74. With a car that gets 35 mpg, the tax is $63.43. With the distance based tax, the new rate is $120 or $240 per annum with the 1 and 2 cent/mi levies, respectively.
