    I used to work for a company started giving us a fuel solution. Running right past a fuel stop and put you in some little rinky dink gas station to save a penny or two. By about the 8th or 9th truck that ran out of fuel that required road service they changed their policy

    Tim said they can push it farther because the new trucks get better MPG.
    I just went almost 900 miles between fuel stops.

    They really stretched it on this run. Originally, they wanted me to backtrack from my delivery east of Boise back to the Flying J over near the T/A...I requested a new solution. Then it was after I drop/hook in Twin Falls, I put 144 in at the Love's in Hayburn (could only fit in 119). Then 133 at the Bosselman Pilot in Grand Island(941 odometer miles)...could only put in 124. Then I have to stretch it to the Love's in Nickajack, TN., where I am to fill(which I've been doing anyway since they're telling me to put in more than my truck will hold) Google says it's 950+ miles, but, I am doing a 34 before I get there, so who knows if I'll make it. Guess I am gonna have to buy some of those old WW II jerry cans to strap to the back deck.

    Has anyone elses Peoplenet been losing the network, or is something else going wrong with this truck. On the way up to Boise the other day, (on roads I have traveled with this truck before) between Hawthorne and I-80 (on US 95), I lost all network on the Peoplenet (but had it on my T-mobile phone), then I lost it again during my break Saturday night in Sinclair, WY (and again I had good signal on my T-Mo phone). When I woke up and tried to download my certified log from the day before, it didn't have signal, so the download logs tab was missing. Ever since that update we got 6 weeks or so ago, this thing is a major laggy POS.

    Yup it is a and driver scorecard is out of whack with false info on delivery and fuel % makes me look like an a rogue driver when I'm 100 compliant and always deliver on time...my pnet restarts all the time while driving but now when I press break it first lags goes to on duty for a few seconds and lags again before finally going on break I lose a few minutes here and there ever since the bypass upgrade....ohhh and we still get to go into weight stations with that experimental thing...I think their spying on us and collecting data no bypass its some selling trucker singing on the road to China ######### idk

    My scorecard only had the fuel compliance screwed up. I called Deland and she said I was about the 25th driver to call about issues with it. She said I'll be fixed soon. Last week it was the idle percentage screwed up.(worse than my usual)..and my Drivewyze apk was never installed, so I haven't been participating in the scale house data collection b.s. IT said I had to call Peoplenet to get it sent, told him no way...I don't sit on 'ignore'(they call it on hold) for something I don't want installed on my sluggish system anyway. Never heard back from him.

    As far as your logs, go online and edit the extra on duty time to off duty. I sometimes do 2 or 3 a day. And for the reason I just put 'unit switches to on duty before it allows me to go off duty'.

    Allstate insurance offers drivewise to their customers...download it on the phone...and it tells allstate ... how fast your going / speeding..how long you stop at traffic light / stop sign...if you use turn signal / when changing lanes or turning...if you brake hard or make a u turn..to supposedly give you a better insurance rate ????
