    You will be surprised at the rates tankers get transporting fuel. They make it on many gallons, not just a few loads. Drive by the fuel loading racks and see who is loading. Insurance for Haz-mat hauling is expensive. Need 5 million liability. Use someone else who has authority and insurance. Being greedy will get you into a place you do not want to be. Nothing wrong with being a workaholic. Did you buy a day cab or sleeper? The lighter the tractor, the more you can haul.
