    Well this is where the rubber meets the road. The end of the month reports and for the first time gas has moved into double digits. 11.1% I have never had that high of a percent.

    So whats the numbers guys? I am up almost 4% from last year. Numbers dont lie, you may not like them but they dont lie.

    Sorry I am not a book keeper I just make the money and pay one. What numbers are you talking about? I am kind of lost on this post. Are you talking about how much I went up on my customers so I don't have to change my life style? Or how much profit margins fell? :confused:

    I imagine he is talking about his expense report, and that for his operation fuel expenses have, (for the first time), topped 10% of his gross. Hasn't for me yet, but I do a lot of spray work, and my routes are fairly tight, but it is getting close.

    No I really did not, but now I under stand. This number this thread speaks of would vary from month to month for me. We have days where we may do a lot of hand work and very little fuel consumption. But I quess for what it is worth this month was 6%. Again we had several days that very little fuel was used. Now if I factor in all the fuel my wife burns during the week that my LLC pays for then yeah that number would reach close to 11%.

    Maybe I was not clear. I do my exspenses every month and noticed the fuel has really jumped. So I thought I would ask what everyone elses was.

    So lets go guys whats the fuel numbers for april? Am I just that lame that I keep all the numbers?
