Can any one help me with an approximation of the annual fuel consumption on an average concrete truck?

Thanks.

Average annual consumption for a 6cu.m truck in the north of the UK working on the following conditions:

250 days
18063 miles per year
5 loads per day
5 radials per load
5.cu.m avg load size
5 mpg

16422litres per annum

I estimate usage at 1 gallon of diesel per cubic yard of production. If a truck delivers 5000 cy per year, the fuel consumption would be 5000 gallons.
