When you are considering scooter hire it is important to consider the ‘hidden’ costs like fuel consumption. The Honda range of scooters and motorcycles have some of the best fuel economy levels available. This will save money on petrol, time to fill up and let you do more deliveries for Uber over longer periods.
Your scooter fuel economy rate will vary based on some of the following conditions;
- Your riding style – is it smooth or aggressive?
- The weight of the rider – 60kgs or 120kgs?
- If you carry passengers – this can double the weight.
- How you maintain tyre pressures – too low increases riding resistance.
- The type of fuel you use – 95 octane vs 98.
- The type of riding you do – stop/start vs freeway.
- If you use the idle features of the bike – switches off the engine when stopped.

In their article this is what some of the scooter riders had to say;
- Larry* is in his late 50s and was laid off from the public service last year. He’s been driving his motorbike for Menulog for about four months to make ends meet and earns $8-$20 per delivery, with an average of five to six in a typical three-hour shift. “I think of it as my work for the dole program,” he says. “It’s OK, but I’d rather have a job with benefits and [paid] days off.”
- Mo* is an international student, and says he and many of his classmates work for Uber Eats because it fits around their schedules.
- Wally* says he works nine hours a day from 1pm to 10pm, seven days a week for Uber Eats on his bicycle and earns between $1100 and $1200 a week.
