    What does a driving status have to do with a non driving status?
     
  4. you are not allowed to do anything regarding the truck duties advancing the truck to a shipper advancing a truck to a receiver... anything related to on duty status is a No-No on PC
     
    Studebaker Hawk and tscottme Thank this.

    There always has to be a smart ### remark. This is mine for the day. Does that mean when I use my truck to go fishing, and I need to put fuel in it I come back on DUTY to fill it and go on PC to drive home?

    I know that response is not worthy of reply or thanks.
     
    Oxbow Thanks this.
  7. yes that is true you might be able to dodge it if you pay cash. but if you use a company fuel card it's going to show the time.. and all time must be logged accordingly

    It's actually a good question... and more difficult to "finesse" in this electronic world. ;)

    You guys,I like the way lite bug thinks.....

    Its fueling a darn truck,why does everything have to be an issue?
    You guys act like you have to walk a tightrope to do this job.

    The property I lease to park my truck has a fuel station next door. I don't log Jack #### when I'm there working on the truck and fueling it.

    Then again,I don't let this job and all it's childish regulations bother my personal habits.

    Fuel away guys,and don't let things bother you
     
    sirhwy, Oxbow, WildTiger1990 and 3 others Thank this.
