    In addition to simple miles driven, the weight of the vehicle needs to be taken into account because a heavier vehicle puts more stress on the road. With a gas tax, that is indirectly taken into...

    That's a great looking saw. I went and looked at his kits and their prices. If someone is looking for a project, one of his kits would be a good start.
