Yep, my 6.4T Tare and 7.2T fully fueled and fully loaded (fulltime living) in a bus with 10T GVM is a perfect example.
If I paid my ‘fair share’. by being in the 7-9T RuC range I would pay $114/1000KM instead of 155/1000kms... a saving of $41/1000 ($410 in the last year alone!)
Since my ‘fully loaded’ weight has 1.8T ‘leeway’ before triggering the ‘9-12T’ rate, there is no possible way I’d ever be able to be overloaded, and I’d still be paying my “fair share” even though I’d be right at the lowest end of that group in actual road wear&tear!
