well yes except it has the unwanted side effect of excessively taxing small fuel efficient diesel engine cars as well.

In Australia we handle this by having the yearly registration fee for a truck be based directly on weight and axles, which is a much fairer way of doing it. I find it hard to believe that the US couldn't implement a similar system of registration fees based on vehicle weight.
