    LOL. That would leave you .15 per mile after fuel, what more could you ask for?

    I’m afraid a big portion don’t understand net or gross or what profit even means.

    In trucking, profit is irrelevant. The only thing that really matters is how many miles can I run before my eld tells me it's nap time.

    I’ve been all the way through this thread and it gives me hope for the next step I’m about to take...there are a lot of naysayers out there saying don’t do this or you’ll go broke in a month but they don’t provide any evidence...it’s refreshing to see someone chronicle their journey to success

    Just the MCP200. My unit is wired with panic button and remotes for AA and E.

    The firmware update brings it to ELD status, but the unit will be obsolete in 2023 from what I’ve learned.
     
    Dave_in_AZ, stwik and 062 Thank this.
