    False Uber Costs Skew Profit

    I read a lot on here about costs per mile etc. They make a good case against Uber and I'm not debating whether it's profitable or not in general, but YOUR results should not rely on THEIR numbers without understanding them. Cost per mile includes the purchase, use, and upkeep of an average...
