    I like fuel injection. 258 in June for all. But I am not busy all the time like lots of you guys are. The return from that gasoline expense is much higher.

    Averaging right at 150 a week diesel and 90 on unleaded for mowers and 2cycles. June was over quite a bit but had a long distance job to do. Bobby G would like that fuel surcharge.

    I spent $418 last month on fuel for my truck and equipment. $320 on truck gas and $98 on fuel for the mowers and hand held stuff. The fuel for the truck isnt all for business though, thats total for the month for personal and business use.

    $308.11 per week in gas so says my American Express bill of 1232.45 in gas for the month of May. Now that’s 160-170 cuts per week with 2 pick ups and 3 Lazer's plus the Diesel rack body when we do our side work. We get that cut in 3 some times 4 days and we do work 6-7 days every week.

    I do not call my employees liars or call them on it when they lie to me but I do know every time they do the same can be said of boasting on the lawn site. When guys build them selves up they seem to always add a few to many trucks or to many employees or use some outrageous amount of gas or are just too young to make the level they claim believable.

    I went to your site Quality it’s quite nice and you do look rather young but unless some one handed you a bunch of those accounts and you took over your dads company I do not buy it its just unrealistic. You have had a drives license for around 2 years and claim you have 14 trucks that’s one ever 2-3 months. If its true great but I know Rod is on the level I have my reservations about your claims perhaps its doing nearly 200 estimates every year but you learn to question certain stuff if you know what I mean.
