    I had to wait over an hour just for a courier to pickup my meal because I'm being discriminated for not tipping!

    Tax Time! Ask me anything about Ride-share Taxes

    I'm not a tax expert nor do I play one on TV. I do claim 75% of my phone. I have no personal life so any review of my calls/text will show the majority are business related. I also save a copy of my iPhone Screen Time report every week wich shows the amount of time spent on each app. My work...

    Tax Time! Ask me anything about Ride-share Taxes

    Some drivers are under the impression that if you are online with Uber and Lyft at the same time you get to claim double the miles because you have both apps on. So basically they are claiming $1.16/mile because they have both apps on. I disagree since having both apps on does not increase your...

    Prius V and other car with speedo in the center

    There are many reasons to pick a v over a standard Prius. 1. They are bigger and roomier. Several times a day I get people telling me how nice it is with many comparing their experience in a standard Prius. The back seats are adjustable forward and aft and they recline. I've had several tell me...

    Car buying sucks.

    $18000 out the door. I had the cash ready to go for a private sale hoping to avoid all extra fees added on by dealers. Shift charged $600 commission minus $100 discount which was made plain and clear in advance.

    Tax Time! Ask me anything about Ride-share Taxes

    So are you saying that you can treat your home as your principal place without claiming the home office deduction? I do Flex for Amazon and I also do Uber. I start my day by reviewing Amazon "blocks" that are available. I have to keep checking and my not know for hours. I take time to prepare my...

    Car buying sucks.

    I bought a couple weeks ago from Shift.com. I kept checking all the sites....cargurus, craigslist, truecar, etc. Was getting discouraged thinking I wouldn't find anything. Was looking for a Prius. Was hoping for a 2015 with decent miles. Had cash. Went to lots which was even more discouraging...

    Handwritten log

    Mine is done by voice with Siri. Me: "Hey Siri, Miles" Siri: "Mileage?" Me: "51458" Siri: "Purpose?" Me: "Pickup Joe" (I can add any info here I want) It gets the address from gps and then appends it to a note in Evernote. At the end of the day I import into Excel. This is the result:

    Fuel additive?

    Not sure where you got that from. From https://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/noframes/18755.shtml My average since January is 19.05 Just had the thermostat replaced. Mechanic said codes says it is running lean so may need to have some adjustments made.

    Fuel additive?

    In my 2003 Toyota Avalon I was getting 15-18 mpg. I used 1 bottle of Gumout. After that it was consistently 18-22 mpg.

    Looking for an auto loan with bad credit.

    Cap One will not finance Uber drivers. So if your income comes from Uber don't even try. I got 10.50% from a company called Westlake. I know it sucks but it is only for $4,000 which I plan to pay off in a few months so wasn't too concerned about the rate.

    Post your MPG!

    Bought a Prius v. Went from 18mpg to 47.7mpg on first tank. Looking forward to that going up as I get better at hypermiling. Dead miles? No problemo. $0.13 - $0.09/mile savings.
