Just curius to see how many miles everyone drives. Reason is because I seem to drive TONS and TONS. I bought the Yukon back in January with 91,000Kms (56,000 miles) and now only 6 months later I am up to 114,000Kms or 71,500miles on it. If you do the math you find out that thats 15,500!!!!
Last Friday I put on a set of brand new BFG MT's and already 7 days later I have 1,000 miles on them!!!!! and the driving isn't going to stop anytime soon. I am going to all these truck pulls on the weekend now and they are at the least 60 miles away with the furthest being 400Miles.

i bought my 99 s-10 in the bigging of nov. with less than 26,000 miles, i now have 39,000, so that is 13,000 in 8 months /wwwthreads_images/icons/shocked.gif. all i do is drive from home to work to school to work to school to home.... over 400 miles a week...
I got mine in fall of '99 with 80K on it. Now it has 128k. In almost two years i put on 48k so far.
Do people say that 12k a year is the average?? Personally I have never been able to drive so litte, and I did try.
I've put 13,000 miles on my truck since late June of 99. How you ask? I live on a military base in San Diego, CA. My military job and second job are within a mile from my barracks. To save needless wear and tear on the Blazer I got a mountain bike and ride that to work. I only drive the truck when I need to go off base or move something I don't feel like carrying myself./wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif
Only has 92,000 miles on it, 43,000 of which have happened after I bought it in May of 98./wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif
Let's see I bough my jeep last year in July with only 124k miles and now it has 162K miles on the clock. I put about 40k on it. That's about a 1/4 of the total millage in a year. I drive to southern Iowa about 10 times a year and I drive every where. Everything is original in it even the oil from the factory, just kidding.

I bought my truck about 9 months ago @ 38,000 miles. 2 tranys later I am @ 57,000miles (ouch, thats OVER 20k/year!). I'm starting to be envous of 3/4 and 1 ton trucks, and am loosing faith in 4L60E by the truck load...
My odometer never worked with old tranny. Then make a pop noise with new tranny and started turnning. Its useless with the big tires though. At any rate 2 twice to TN for some wheeling and thats about it. Drive up to work to go muddin near work about once a month. 6 mpg sucks. Id say 10k in the 1.5 years i had it.
i dont drive much either. about 17k in the 2.5 years ive had it. i drive about 650 miles per month now. i live on campus so the only time i drive is 50 miles each way home most weekends and a trip to the store every now and then.
