I made $50/hr once, drove pax 100 miles at $1.25/mi. Trip with pax in car took 2 hours. Now I had to dead-head 2 hours home so you could say I drove 4 hours and only made $25/hr. Uber doesn't care about your time, only the time when they are getting paid, when pax are in the car. Technically they aren't lying about it, just not giving all the details. They also don't say you will make a sustained $50/hr, just that you could.
