    So if I drive the postal owned vehicle I get the 17 cents per mile? They are telling us they only pay for gas if we drive the postal vehicle, and give us 17 if we drive our own.
    Seems silly for them to buy more expensive plane tickets so we don’t drive our POV.

    Make them give you a postal owned vehicle and take the $.17 per mile. If there is a postal vehicle available you have to use it or take the $.17 per mile. You will only be reimbursed for what ever is cheapest for the postal service.

    Per F-15 5-4.1
    Determining When to Use
    When it is advantageous to the Postal Service for you to travel by automobile, you are expected to use a Postal Service-owned vehicle, GSA-contracted vehicle, or GSA-owned vehicle. You must first try to obtain use of a Postal Service vehicle, before attempting to obtain use of a GSA-contracted or GSA-owned vehicle. If none of these are available, the Postal Service may approve the use of your privately owned vehicle (POV).

    The following is from the GSA web site:
