Tom and the Grosh's Lawn Service Team Featured in Lawn & Landscape
Tom Grosh spoke with Lawn & Landscape recently about the strategies he uses to manage fuel costs. Excerpts from the article are below.
When gas prices suddenly spiked several years ago, many lawn care companies offset costs with temporary surcharges on customers’ bills. Since then, LCOs have switched fuel sources, upgraded equipment and installed software to more sustainably manage fluctuating fuel costs.
Maintenance is a must, but the investment varies from gas to diesel equipment. “Across the board, when you get a diesel truck, everything is more expensive,” says Tom Grosh, owner of Grosh's Lawn Service in Clear Spring, Md. “With diesel, we had to change the fuel filter every oil change, which cost around $400 total. Now, we have electronic fuel injection, so it’s less than $100 for an oil change on a gas truck. That’s a tremendous difference.”
