    We are a road electrical contractor and I want to improve how we collect data on the costs of operating our equipment.  The categories I have for ownership costs are depreciation, insurance, and licensing and registration but wanted to seek suggestions from my CFMA brethren on operating cost categories and why.  Thank you in advance for any input.

    Don't forget the cost of funds (interest) and major overhaul reserves.
