Default Re: How many kms (in total) have you driven?

If one takes an approximation of average speed at 60kms/hr, then one would need 1 year to drive/ride 500,000 kms and 2 years to drive/ride 1 million kms! Envy you guys, I will never be able to clock a million miles in a life time. I have never travelled to study/work , except for one year, I was always put up inside campus/quarters. I have clocked around 150,000 kms. All you guys out there, while you all clock big miles, never forego safety of yours and others on road.Wish you all a million miles and miles to drive/ride before you all sleep!

Total mileage of cars I have I have used till date over last 23 years from purchase date to date I hand over to staff or other employees for their travel needs is 9.6 lakh km.
Adding some amount of driving friends relatives and other cars, I expect I have just crossed a million km, or will do so in the next few months.

Default Re: How many kms (in total) have you driven?

My drive experience in a 4 wheeler is low since I ride a lot although I equally enjoy both.

Bullet 350- 1,07,000 kms
Bullet 500(sold)- 50,000 kms
Maruti 800(sold)- 20,000 kms
Ford Figo- 40,000 kms

Not including the friends/relatives cars and bikes used over time.

It would be interesting to see a professional driver's numbers on this subject.

Very interesting thread.

My tally so far, beginning from 1997:

Suzuki Samurai : ~40,000 km (1997 - 2005)
TATA Indica : ~1,30,000 km (2004 - till date)
TATA Manza : 60,000 km (2010 - 2015)
Hyundai Verna : 3,000 km (2015 - till date)

So that's a total of 2,33,000 km. Damn, that's a lot of riding / driving! And this does not include the drives / rides of cars / bikes of friends.

And not one trip more than 350 kms one-way!!! I have been commuting too much to office. Need a break and a looooong drive just for the heck of it!!!

Default Re: How many kms (in total) have you driven?

I voted as less than Million and then started calculating. Its more than a million

Thanks for this thread and making me calculate -

TVS Astra - 60,000
RX100 - 2,00,000
RX135 - 2,85,000
800 - 1,50,000
Van (3) - 3,00,000
Scorpio - 70,000
Palio - 85,000

I have not taken in account the Ambassador, Fiat 1100 in which I learnt driving and friends car/bike which I have driven.

Couple of Months back I had calculated how much time I have wasted in commute to/fro from Airport, time in Airport and in Flight itself. I have wasted around 6 months

Regards
