    .19 cpm for an FSC? Where the hell are you running, Riyadh? You're getting screwed hard and don't even know it.

    How much FSC are you receiving this week? Who do you drive for?

    Do you even know how to look up the FSC Schedule? Assuming a very poor 6mpg, you're claiming to get an FSC of $1.14 per GALLON, which is how FSC is actually calculated. You're not getting a FSC, you're getting some sort of bump that I assure you benefits whatever outfit you're in an LP with. I run for myself, leased on to a company. I own my truck outright, paid cash for it. Jesus, this is Amatuer Hour.

    I'm not in a lease purchase, mate.
    I own my tractor. I have the title.
    2010 Freightliner Cascadia.
    And other guys I have asked on here say each company pays the FSC differently to their drivers .

    Then you are all getting screwed. FSC is on a schedule released every Tuesday for the coming week. My bet is that "FSC" is going to show up on your 1099 as per diem or some other such BS header.

    No it didn't show up like that.
    And yes I know it changes every tuesday.
    My payroll Lady emails me the amount as soon as she finds out.
    Man you are not understanding that not every company will give 100% pass thru to the driver. Some do , and that's nice.

    I am figuring that my company is keeping at least 25% of it. But they also pay for my plates, IFTA, And tolls. No cost to me.

    So that is why I am ok with it.
    And I own my truck "outright" just like you. Do we get a trophy in the forum here for that?

    Why don't you tell us who you are leased to if they are so good?
