    Fuel sur charge for expediters

    Truth or BS?

    I'll add, I built a small windmill using GM 1 wire alt. I have it hooked up to a deep cycle battery. This set up powers a bunch of LED lights I have in my shop. I also took a fan out of an old computer(most are 12 volts) and mounted it in my dog house for hot summer days. The lights are off in...

    CDL Question

    Thanks guys your answers confirmed what I thought. Wanted to get some other opinions though. Turtle from the listings I've seen on the want ads here it looks like most want you to have a "B" to even drive a van.

I don't need a CDL to drive this truck.I am thinking about signing on with a company that requires all the drivers to have a CDL-B...
