No. Duty on fuel is a duty on the amount of fuel purchased. Different cars and even driving styles use different amounts of fuel per mile. Miles are a constant. You would charge the same per mile covered for cycles as for cars. Weight has nothing to do with it as the wear on the road is only a part of the road tax, you have road signs, maintenance and policing amongst a whole load of stuff.
