This easy-to-use tool is a quick way to discover the impact fuel will have on the price of your move. Add this cost to your truck rental rate (along with fees like taxes and damage protection) to make sure your long-distance move won’t break the bank.
Calculating Fuel Costs
To calculate gas cost manually:
- Divide the total trip miles (don’t forget to add extra miles for stops) by the truck MPG
- Multiply that amount by the average gas price
For example, if you expect to drive 850 miles in a truck that gets 10 miles to the gallon, and gas costs $2.50 on average, you should budget $212.50 for gas.
