Maybe I’m misunderstanding you. If your pay and your fuel subsidy combined is $2.25 per loaded mile (running mile maybe? Hopefully!!)…. If it’s per running mile then we’re in the same neighbourhood with us paying $.14 less (Call it $.28 less), but we are dealing with significantly less weights then you are I’m assuming???
let’s say a tractor is 17,000lbs & A trailer is about 8000lbs & three small RVs being maybe 12,000 pounds…. That’s 37,000 pounds combined load so to add a margin of error we would license that on a cab card through IRP at 42,000lbs…. And know that it would never be exceeded for weight.
My gross on this trip is 78,000 lbs sometimes it’s 52,000 lbs all depends..
My last trip was candy and the load was 12,000 lbs.. stretched out the tandems for stability and ran it from Dallas to Calgary in 3 days.. the extra 2 hours helped when I crossed into Canada.. phew
