Improve Your Miles Per Gallon; Put More $$ in Your Pocket

Fuel prices are raging! All of our operators feel the pain of increased fuel costs in their businesses. We are pleased

we have a fuel surcharge mechanism that helps ease that pain. But we also know the surcharge will never quite

cover your increased fuel costs.

Our best operators do what is necessary to get the most out of a gallon of fuel. Did you know that an increase in average

mpg from 5.5 to 5.6 – just 1/10

th mile per gallon – would put an additional $1,500 in your pocket at the end of

the year? Increasing ½ mile per gallon - from 5.5 to 6.0 – would give you an additional

$7,200 over a year – that’s

$600.00 a month


If it’s not already happening, starting now you need to . . .

SLOW DOWN! Keep it under 62 mph

Maintain proper tire pressure; check daily

Reduce idling; consider an APU for a/c and heat while shut down

No rapid starts and stops

Imagine what you would do with an extra
$7,200 this year.
