    Fuel Costs for Company Drivers?

    How do company drivers pay for fuel? Do they use some sort of a company fuel card? Do they monitors miles driven to amount of fuel consumed? Is the expense incurred by the driver and then compensated later?

    Thanks again guys

    Most companies give drivers a fuel card but fueling policies vary . Most cards have a daily limit . Some companies designate fuel stops on each trip . Some require verification calls when fueling . The required miles for each trip are known . Some carriers will charge drivers for fuel for excessive mileage and also for excessive idling .

    Most OTR companies have fuel cards for companies drivers.O/O have to pay for there own fuel.Some small mom and pop companies have drivers pay for fuel but they pay them back either half of it or all of it.

    I wanna know which ones only pay half the fuel cost back..... wanna steer clear of them!! LOL!!the driver paying for it out of pocket is few and far between, but does happen.
    Alot of O/O have accounts with loves, flying j, etc. or a company credit card. Most O/O leased to decent sized carriers run the carriers fuel card and the cost is deducted on the next weeks pay. Werner was weekly. sunday to saturday, or close to them days. CRST Malone was per trip. Whatever trips you turned in for the week, whatever fuel you bought on said trips, fuel was deducted.
