Not really relevant but I've always been curious. If you tow a car with all 4 wheel on the ground but without the car turned on, do the miles register?

The only downside would be you'd have to pay sales tax on the car when you buy it back. But depending on what state you live in, you may have to pay sales tax no matter what you do.
