Must get new car , bigger, family is getting bigger. looks like is has to be a van . So another question
can you drive a van as uber x and uber xl using the same vehicle.
I would ask uber but they do not respond to anything

Yes. Uber will know the van qualifies as XL and you will get those calls but you will also continue to get x calls. Better money to be earned with a van.

I have a Toyota Sienna and drive for both Uberx and UberXL. You have to make sure they put your documents with XL also otherwise you will only get Uberx calls. I also have it to where I can "change vehicles" and just do XL Only. Sometimes XL will be surging and you might want to capitalize on that vs staying on Uberx and get a ping. XL only I do usually on my way home, because a $5 trip just isn't worth it when I'm tired and ready to end the night! Not many XLs on the road but with college kids back, I have seen a rise in requests.

7 trips last night and one of them was an XL. I was fully loaded and I seat 7. I may just start sticking to the XL trips and stay away from the X

How do you change to only accept XL? I cant seem to find where that option is.

Last night was the first time that I choose to only drive XL. Looks like it paid off. 10 trips for $230 in 6 hours.

How can you drive XL only . do you simply not pick up X calls ? or is there a way to set it up XL only ?

The downside about xl is uber cuts 28% over 20% on x, keep in mind more people means more waiting, more backseat drivers and a few more pukers. My account is sent to ping both x and xl at the same time, if x is on 2x surge i don't xl, if its fri or sat night by asu or old town i usually ignore x requests and wait on xl...and when you get sick of the bs you sign off and go home...
