    Its not as bad as it seems.
    In 6 hours or less (depending on surge and PB) im cashing out an estimate of 200-300 for that day, of course I don't do it every day.
    Traffic? Well I'll be on carpool which in some areas is worse than others...so? but at least im not stuck in the same area (it has become boring) with the same crowd, wear and tear, high risk coalition involvement, and many bull****, besides I don't fallow Quest like a puppet, and most important of all, Im saving half a tank, yes you heard right..HALF A TANK.
    Yea yea..more miles, but who cares, that's deductable (and it pays off in tax season).
    Try it, sometimes it happens, and sometimes you have to really take a lot of factors in consideration, like how many DF you have left when you end up in an certain points of bay area.

    I'm intrigued but don't quite understand much of the paragraph. English is only my first language, so I'm not a good comprehender yet. I understand the benefits of the method, but what is the method?

    You've accomplished your goal - posting 'insight' with those pesky details that would help it all make sense.

    I do agree though. Many bull****.

    Your talking about the SFO lot?
    I thought it didn't work on the airport area, unless your on El Camino Real.
    Well either way, I dont hang around on any airports, waist of time.

    What is "driving in circles" and how does it make $250 in 6hrs while saving half a tank (I don't even use half a tank a day, so I'm really mystfied). So the rest of u know what he means? I asked him "what is the method" cuz it seemed like he was trying to tell us, like he wanted us to know about it, but his answer didn't make much sense either. Was I wrong? Did he do that on purpose, trying to join the ranks of cretinity, or am I just really slow? Any interpreters? I'm still intrigued.

    Well my well known member Weird Fruit, Depending on surge, area, PB and time of day.
    Half a tank means its mostly highway runs.
    Circles means driving freeways around the bay (from SF, South bay and back through Oakland or which ever settings im put thru).
    Its chess not checkers

    Seriously!!??
    How can there be dead miles?
    Unless your not keeping a record of it,
    If your not, you should.
    Track your miles, it might not seem much, but on tax season it counts.
    Someone once said: boy, dont worry about the miles and depreciation, 1 or 100 a day it still depreciating.
    Even car dealers don't tell you, but when you trade in they don't care much about the miles on a car when the maintenance where up to date.
    So just drive!!!!!
    ****gas price is the only thing I would worry to find on a station
