1. ## Courier mileage formula

So I'm opening a courier business and I need help coming up with a formula that will convert an hourly wage into miles. It costs 41 cents a mile to run my vehicle. Which is a 2016 Kia soul if that helps. I need to be able to effectively input an hourly wage and convert it into mileage. I've figured that there are at least 9 city blocks in a mile 5280/600=8.8 but I can't figure how I would calculate time at stop lights or acceleration speeds. I need to be precise as possible. Please help.

You can't calculate this. There are far too many factors many of which are effectively random. If you had the road to yourself sure, but you don't.

The best you can do is to get data on trip duration vs. trip length for your routes at the various times you drive them and come up with some averages.

This data probably already exists somewhere, Google is able to give reasonable trip length estimates for a given route at a give time.
