As long as you start charging lots more for gas use since it pollutes our cities and kills us that sounds fair.

@ Sniper that is actually a good point, but we already often have registration fees etc... that sort of cover the use. Furthermore it doesn't make sense to have people pay for aging that don't drive on the road. Gas use still correlates to mileage which is a fairer way to distribute that cost.
