    Fuel is only 5% of my gross sales. I think there is a correlation between gallon burned and man hours. The weeks that I burn $2000 worth of fuel, tend to be good weeks.

    WOW fuel is 17% to 20% of mine. I couldn't do a 100k worth of invoices on 5k of fuel.

    Apparently they haven't, since they disappeared.

    Ditto.
