  Some Things To Keep In Mind

  • Fuel Tax is a "Consumption or Gallon Tax", not a mileage tax. Two trucks traveling the same number of miles in a state will pay different tax amounts.
  • The price you see at the fuel pump is not the price you use to make buying decisions.
  • There are no "shortcuts" or "hacks" to know where to buy fuel. You have to do the math each and every time. (Except for the "Easy Button" at the end of this course)
  • We don't care about the fuel tax itself, you will always get credit for every penny of tax you pay. We're are ONLY interested in fuel cost.
  • There are no exceptions to the rule. I'll explain this in the lesson ironically titled Exceptions.
  • Don’t confuse how fuel tax is calculated with how it is paid. Where you buy fuel has no impact on how much tax you pay, only when you pay it.
  • You will come across many drivers and owner-operators who will try to tell you about fuel tax and how to buy fuel. Be skeptical, many of them just don't understand it themselves. I've seen this for decades. There is A LOT of misinformation, and yet these people are very confident that they are correct.
  • Once you understand this, you will be amazed at how simple it really is.
  • Have I mentioned that you can save thousands of dollars a year in fuel cost if you understand what's in this course?
  • Don't forget, at the end there is going to be an "EASY BUTTON" where I'll show you how you can do everything I teach in this course in less than five minutes a day.
