As to profitability, right now on weekends I’ve made close to $20 an hour driving on just one platform, call it $300 for two days at an average 8 hours a day (usually 6 first day and 10-12 the second), and after fuel and car washes I normally profit $220-240... my car gets around 20mpg while driving in town (really steep, 1st gear hills and lots of stop and go)... that’s less than I *could* make working OT at my day job but the time is difficult to get and it’s usually offered on a few mins notice (get call at 9:45 asking if I can be there by 10), so I appreciate the flexibility

The issue with buying a car is mostly my credit. While I’ll likely have 20-30% to put down on a $5-6k car, that doesn’t buy much and I’m not even sure if I could get financing
