I've pretty much factored that in for Postmates and the job has worked out to be about $12/hr. Not great but I also get tips. So far I've made about $600 in about 35 hours.
I idle my car when I do fastfood deliveries to houses. Only time I ever shut off my car is to go in to restaurants. I used cruise control a lot, coast, plus I never take deliveries that require me to drive far. I reject 90% of deliveries now. Some drivers are scared to do that lol. It's the only way to make the job profitable.
Even though the pay is pretty shit the job is low stress to me. I can quit whenever I feel like it. I got piad to sit in strip club 3 nights in a row doing a to go orders. That was pretty cool.
