My ex-wife and my daughter are both rural carriers.
They both have those jeeps, simply because they were available with right hand drive.
The P.O. pays them by the mile for the use of a personal vehicle.
The cost of fuel and maintenance is considered by the P.O. in determining the rate they pay. The rate is the same for every carrier in the U.S. So-- an efficient car gives the carrier more money in pocket and the jeeps are about and even trade off.

When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That's relativity.
