You have to actually fill the truck up too though. 80,000 miles a year is at least 4,000 gallons and that’ll be over $8,000 minimum per year. Not counting tires, oil changes and the occasional catastrophe.



True, but 80,000 miles at .58 a mile is $40,400. That's a pile of cash for 10 or 12 oil changes and a set of tires.


And a real sonofabitch when you hit a deer, a tire shreds and destroys your bed etc etc.


Well, I've been driving for 38 years now, lots of trucks,trailers, cars, and tire blowouts but never had one damage a vehicle worse than a messed up rim. I average 20,000 miles a year and never hit a deer either.

Company car with a company card is great and reimbursement is even better for racking up rewards etc.

I would just rent a car and let them deal with maintenance. Just looked I can rent an economy car for 650 per month. I am sure you could find better deal in bigger city./

I have a company truck and it's great. It isn't my choice of vehicles but it is a 4wd crew cab pick up(2014 Tacoma) that I can use as I please. I also have a personal truck simply because it is paid for and I don't feel bad about abusing it at the farm and I would feel bad about using my company vehicle to way I do my personal one at the farm. Not long ago my company truck needs some type of mass air flow sensor or something of that nature that cost like $600 and brakes all the way around. It sure is nice to just drop the truck off, it gets fixed and I pick it up and doesn't cost me a dime.
