    I'm curious to what you guys are spending on gas every week or month.

    If you don't mind ... list how many resi/commercial accounts you have and how much gas you're buying every week.

    Thanks guys.

    We spend between 6-9 thousand a month on our Fleet One accounts and usually about 1500 on misc accounts like BP or AMCO. We do most of our work out of town and had to lease a home 2 hours from hear to save money on hotel rooms.

    When we're going......$800ish a month. Thats mostly just vehicle fuel (International and my truck) as we use minimal mix and depending on the job the Bobcat runs through about $30 a day.

    total for the year was $1900 for gas and $1700 for diesel. say 9 months out of the year. $3600/9 = $400 a month or $100ish a week? this is for a tight lawn route 3 days a week plus landscaping jobs 2 days a week in the spring.
