Plug-In Device without Location
A device designed to plug in to your vehicle’s OBD-II port that automatically calculates your mileage-based user fee (MBUF) based on estimates of the state(s) where you drive. The device accesses mileage data and fuel consumption data stored in your vehicle’s computer and applies assumptions about your percentage of in-state and out-of-state travel. Without location data, you pay for miles driven and receive credits for gas taxes paid based on estimates of where you traveled. The non-location MBUF reduces privacy concerns regarding trip data, but does not provide an accurate connection between the funds collected and where the road wear and tear happens. Not having the location technology also limits the number of value-added amenities available to you.
