    I was tracking my returns from start of the month. This is small sample to be considered as a rule, but I want to share my expirience. I hunt mostly low mobs and I live with 120-150 PED for a month or two now. I am not in position to depozit now, so I must use my existing peds in most eco way, did some sweating and TAXI flights as bonus however. I follow Lizzy golden advice to farm same mob and I am able to stack same loot and sell it when ped card goes empty.

    During this time I didn't had a single global, but silent one on Cyrene was good enough to bail me out together with weapons and amplifiers drop from Prospectors.

    Average TT return: 92.87%
    Average TT return (Reward ammo included): 99.02%

    Average MU return: 96.66%
    Average MU return (Reward ammo included): 102.82%

    MU in table is weekly markup at day of the hunt, if there is noweekly MU, TT value is used. Of course, it is hard to sell stuff at weekly MU, I sold my loot little lower so when I consider that my real returns should be little above break even.

    Primary weapon: Starkhov LPR-3 CDF Edition (L) and sometimes Ozpyn LR S1X1
    Finisher: S.I. HK110
    Armor: Musca Adjusted

    Just to second what Neil said in his post. I mine for GMC and I track my own returns. So i can say that over 186 mining runs my average tt return has been 99.746%.

    Just a thought on the 90% TT return theory. Could this have been started due to the 10% loss when chipping skills in? (Thus giving you 90% value return).
