Well it does make a big difference even if your a one crew company.

For me, my dirrect fuel would be around 5-6 percent

Then I have "overhead" fuel to cover my truck, mechanics truck, and mis. And that adds up to around 2% more

I think I'm between 6 and 8 percent. Haven't figured stuff for last year yet so not 100% sure.

I have that problem also. I'm trying something new this year. Rented a fenced parking lot where I can park my 1 ton truck and trailer. The fuel savings is more than enough to cover the lot rent.
