Does Route4Me calculate my fuel and operating expenses once a route is planned?
We recommend setting fuel costs at the beginning of each workday inside the Route4Me.com fuel costs settings page. Once fuel costs are set, then any route that is planned, which has a vehicle assigned to it, will have estimated fuel costs. The fuel costs are calculated by taking the average miles per gallon that you specified in the vehicles page, and the multiplying that by the total number of miles in your route. The fuel costs are then permanently stored and associated with that particular route. This is important because as fuel prices change over time, the original total fuel cost for older routes remain unchanged.
