How much Money Can You Make From A Petrol Pump Business
All income comes on petrol pump business is on a commission basis. In this, you don’t get any salary from the company. You get a commission on the liter you sell petrol or diesel.
I went to many petrol pumps and talked about it, but everyone told me different commission rates on petrol and diesel.
But if I take out an average, then you get a commission of Rs.3 for selling 1 liter of petrol. While selling 1 liter of diesel, you get a commission of Rs.2.
So according to this, if you sell 70,000-liter petrol and 150,000-liter diesel in 1 month then you can make an income of Rs.422,000.
Petrol: 50,000×Rs.3 = Rs.150,000
Diesel: 150,000×Rs.2 = Rs. 300,000
Gross Income = Rs. 450,000
Total Expenditure = 100,000 (Including Maintainance and Staff Salary)
Net Income: 450,000 – 100,000 = Rs. 350,000
This is when you sell only 50,000 liters of petrol and 100,000 liters of diesel. But if you sell more than this, your income also becomes very high.
