    The title may be misleading but trying to get some insight on the owner operators who leased on to other fuel companies like KAG, William tank lines or any other well established fuel company.
    Im looking to make the jump next year and purchase a rig, I have over 5 years hauling fuel and wondering is it worth leasing on to a company with your own truck. Every O/O I ask say the money is good and work is there. I just want to know is it really worth getting my own truck.

    You should be talking to the o/o for the company you’re interested in ,
    Not us.

    if you see one of the drivers making a fuel drop , ask em if they will call
    You when they are not super busy, so you can talk about it

    Just remember that the o/o are the first to see a slowdown in the economy, even for local or regional work.

    Both Wayne and Kane are advertising for owner ops in Minnesota. Both for gas and hauling road oil.
