P3+ This morning:
Filled up @ 3.79/gallon (22gallons = $87). Put on 227 miles (with 14' trailer in tow). Averaged 9.7 mpg!

227miles @ 3.79/gallon @ 9.7mpg 12 hour day= $7/hour. Doesn't look like my truck is even earning minimum wage. I think it's time to fire her unless she can be more productive.

newenglandprop Holy smokes there is a lot that has not been considered over the years- and as prices we get are driven down, fuel constantly on the rise along with EVERTHING else in your life. Think about it, sooner or later you will be owing money before you even rise from your bed.

katoman I'm paying about $5.20 a US gallon. ( I converted it ). It's not the cost of fuel that bothers me. I just pass that cost onto the client.

It's the miles I am putting on the truck. Too many out of town jobs. Instead of getting four years out of the truck ( hitting end of extended warranty ), I will only get three years out of the truck.

I may keep it. But normally I trade them every four years. Now it's every three? That's worth about eight grand.
