    With diesel fuel approaching $1.65/L in the SW, and over $1.40/L in many places, it is time to consider adding fuel surcharges. I am adding 9% on cost over $1/L as of now.
    F/S = [(Current Price – Base Price) / Base Price] x % of Fuel Cost
    I tried running the truck on unicorn farts but it prefers diesel for some reason.

    Are you raising it now or just now adding the surcharge?

    It’s an individual business decision, there is no country wide generic fuel surcharge in place.
