    what is your fuel bill run for a year? We are a small comp. 11 employees and 5 trucks. Last year our fuel bill was over $16,000.00's does this seem high? Mow 5 days a week not every truck get used every day. Just trying to see if this is high or not? Its all gasoline (low grade).

    I have one truck, and 2-3 employees depending on time of year. I spent just over $6,000 last year on fuel, so it sounds ok to me.

    Wow you guys must have spread out routes or cover a very large area. I put less then 5,000 miles a year on one truck. My routes are very tight. My workers complain about not enough time to pick their noses between stops :)

    We are almost the exact size as you. That sounds right to me. Very close to what we spent on fuel.
