Not the brightest star in the sky are ya?
Just another example how dam clueless
people are about the Uber scam. It,s people like this guy who keep Screwber going. Anybody who was dumb enough to work 100 a week driving for Screwber is LONG gone or living in the trunk of thier burnt out car. My faith in human humanity has taken a nose dive since reading posts in this site!

I see no one of the players here could pass out a number So I will.

I drove 102 hours my first 2 weeks and made $1890.22 with Uber X working the hours I wanted.

I also made $160.76 in 12 hours yesterday. There's money out there if you can handle the bullshit.

I use the word "bullshit" lightly. I don't have the same negative opinions or attitudes as some of the players here.
How many miles did you drive the first two weeks and yesterday?

Ok, If you want to pass out a number you need to pass out ALL the numbers or it's completely meaningless. How long ago, before or after Uber's %20, how many miles and the 102 was actual driving time or hours online?

In Brooklyn? Yeah, I can believe that. Try a market where you can go 3 hours without a ping, then get a call to go down the street and make $5 before commission and get a 4 because you're more than 5 min away. You won't even cover gas. Who can be mentally prepared for that bullshit? But last year it wasn't like that. Less drivers, better economy, Uber also had a better reputation.
NYC is probably the only market you can make some money. But driving 6
days a week 65 - 85 hrs dosen't leave much on the table for a life.

At the $1.25 a mile rates last summer, with some nice surges in Hollywood on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, I used to pull in $1,800 to $2,100 per week, working 100+hours on Uber X. Although the money sounds good, a pace like that for 12 months a year is not sustainable, even if you have the stamina to do it like I did. But I only did it for 5 months, until the big uBer **** on New Years Eve. The problem is that you need to make enough money to for pay bills, expenses, taxes, food, sex, and whatever else, and still make enough money to pay cash for another nice car. Because after 12 months a 3,000 miles a week, your car is pretty much done, or at least close to it. Okay, so maybe 16 months. But the thing is, you are going to need a new car after 120,000 miles or so. That is arguable, of course. But the other problem is that 100+ hours a week 52 weeks a year only gets you enough money to pay for everything BUT a new car. So then what?
Agreed, The vehicle expenses, depreciation and wear & tear and like you said a replacement vehicle after
12 - 18 months is the part that %80
of these Uberheads don't get. They either never took the time to do the Uber math or have the ability to do it .

After. That is taken directly from the Checks I receive

The hours used was in my weekly reports.

If I could post my spreadsheet, you will see the expenses, income, mileage, Deduction at .575 per mile, Total income from all sources, tax I paid, taxable income estimate after deduction. Social Security Payment. (using 2014 rules)

This was my total expense output or cost to operate for the 1st 226 days and I have 411 miles left in the tank. $1303.38 includes everything, 1Q insurance, interest...

BUT no tread wear or depreciation estimate. 30k mile check up was 343. I'm using 5.7 gallons of gas per day

All I do is plug in the income and expense and the formula takes over. The only mistake can be putting in the wrong number.
Your numbers look good! Finally a guy who takes the time and knows how to get to the true bottom line. You took into account your vehicle operating expenses and even the tax witholdings. I seriously doubt that there are many people banking %18 of thier weekly checks for the Social Security and Medicare payments that the IRS is going to want, when they file thier taxes. GOOD JOB your on the ball, glad to see it's working out for you.

No. I don't have the car for that change in class.

Yesterday was 12 hours and 165 miles. It also included a 30,000 mile check up for $343.00 from the dealer.

A lot of dead miles in SW suburbs and 5 short trips home from the store. The 1st rider must have gotten me out there from Brookfield/Lyons. Wound up around 230pm at rt 83 and 75th. One of these days I'm going to work Waukeegan so I can meet this woman I have been texting with since March. We met at an online dating site. I've met 35 women so far this year. To one to U2. Another to Van Halen. Had coffe at the Chicago Hilton. Ice cream at the Brown Cow. Lou Malniatti's Pizza. Drinks at private clubs like the Sky Room.

I'm having another great year...
Nice! Looks like the Uber gig is paying off for you other than the $ end if the business.
