$6.40/hr for using your own vehicle and gas for deliveries is bonkers

a volt wouldnt really be better though...
according to 2011 Chevrolet Volt Verdict - Motor Trend
the Volts depreciation over 3yrs was (39,995 - 16,797) $23198 divided out by 3yrs, 52 weeks, 40hrs week... you could figure it costs $3.72 an hour in depreciation as a work vehicle

any other job, even with the ridiculously low 5.15 wyoming min. wage would be a better deal
