Default Whats ur weekly mileage???

How about getting a feel of "Who drives how much??"... I mean we all talk cars... but there are some who are all knowledge but drive less.. and there are others who drive a lot but know too little...

Well I drive about 70 kms daily and thanx to my work schedule its 6 days a week . i do a minimum of 420 kms a week minimum... throw in some pleasure driving, some "driver job" for the family and misc driving... say around 30 kms and I would post a weekly figure of 450 kms...

I guess that explains the reasons for my Baleno going in for its 1st service withing the 3rd week .....

So lets hear guys.... Who clocks the maximum weekly mileage
(please exclude road trips, leisure trips etc from this calculation. Lets just talk pure daily driving)

Cheers....

My Jeep runs an average of 2,000 kms every month. Goes to 2,500 when off-roading weekends come into the picture.

I drive around 30kms during the week and prolly 100 over the week-ends.
Mostly I commute to work on my Pulsar..which I find much better in the traffic here!
Still I have clocked abt 3200km in 2.5 months of owning my car, largely due to long drives I have done it (Pune-Mum, Harihareshwar, Goa )

Well my Endeavour has done around 25,000+ in 15 months...This car being diesel is used for most of the highway trips and local chores.

Accords done 22,000km in a little over 2 yearsThe reason being that i am not in bombay most part of the year...its only when i come down that the odometer really gets running...probably drive around 350km a week when i am down.(All city driving on this...No highway runs done on this car ...probably been on the expressway 2-3 times only.)

Mercedes has done over 32,000km or so in about 3 years.
