    You should haul non hazardous freight.

    Mistakes/mishaps with hazmat tanker freight are usually either very expensive, very dangerous....or both.

    Thus -- for at least your first 2 years as a driver....get your learning/rookie mistakes out of the way....by hauling non-hazmat freight.

    If...after that time...you still are in trucking, & have a good safety record....THEN you can consider hazmat tanker freight options.

    So hazmat=good
    and
    carbon monoxide=deal breaker.

    This does not compute.

    Maybe look for only Dihydrous Monoxide loads. Sure it kills a few thousand people every year but mostly only if they fall in and can't get out of it. It almost never explodes.
