I just finished my contract that I will be using soon and I have all the cost and specs on front (with a place to sign) and on the back is the legal terms agreed to in the contract. I think it will be better than using something that is 2 pages.

just food for thought...this year we're including a "fuel adjustment clause". Its not out of the realm of possibility that we could be paying close to $2/gal for 89 or higher octane. The clause kicks in when the cost exceeds $1.75/gal. Predicting fuel costs these days is almost impossible and by doing it this way, they will only be charged for the amount per gal over 1.75, times the amount of fuel used on their property plus a pro rated amount of vehicle fuel for that month.

I dont get screwed and neither do they.

If other companies/businesses can add fuel surcharges, so can we
