    Hello

    I'm able to use the destination option to pick up pax near my job and drop them off near my house (i work/live in heavily populated areas) When I do this I usually get home 30 minutes later with about 5 miles more. Should I just record the 30 minutes and 5 miles on my own spreadsheet??? (for expenses like gas/etc and tracking purposes) I mean, after all, I would be going home anyway. Seems straight forward or am I missing something?

    Log every single mile you drive while online, even if it's something you would have driven anyway.
    Time doesn't matter. Just miles.

    i understand why i would do that for tax purposes but im trying to calculate my hourly rate net of expenses. So time does matter to me.

    You'll drive yourself absolutly crazy doing it this way.

    Some days you'll make $20 per hour, some days $.20.
