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


This discussion sparked off among Moderators recently, and I thought it'll make for an interesting thread.

How many kms have you driven in *total*, over the years?

Back of the envelope calculations tell me that I have ~600,000 kms of driving experience under my belt. This includes ~35,000 kms in the USA, ~30,000 kms on two-wheelers (college days) and ~200,000 kms on my Jeep (also the car I've driven the most).

We have a related thread (How many kms do you do in a month?), but it's not quite the same.

Mine is around 1,30,000 kms in car.
And around 40,000 kms in my old kinetic Honda.

I am surprised that my total driving adds up to almost 3,00,000 kms. I gave up 2 wheels once I got my 4 wheel DL in 1998.

If I am travelling in a car, 95% of the time its me at the wheel .

Not going to vote in the thread now. Will lose a chance.

52000 km in the Polo currently. Have driven a bit in our '99 Zen and the Dzire as well but not much - 3000 km tops. Will leave them out.

Jeroen, Navin, ajmat and Rudra shouldn't cast their votes in the poll!

Excellent thread. It certainly got me thinking had and working furiously with the calculator.

I've gone through a lot of cars since the time I got my licence (January 1995).

Over the years, lots of journeys have been undertaken and almost every road in India has been driven on. Calculations give me a total of well over 500,000 kms in the kitty. The bulk of this distance has been on Indian roads.

Excellent Thread GTO.

Cant remember exactly, but have been driving since 2002. 29-June-2002 I got Bajaj Spirit, Maroon color, smiling headlamp, Comet 35W bulb. Its over 13 years now. Then came Caliber ( original round headlamp one ), then Zeus, M800, Baleno, Wagon R, Innova, Grand i10 and now Swift. Out of all these, least driven by me is Innova. Car with highest reading currently with us : Wagon R, 55000+ kms.

Total 2-wheeler driving : 1,05,000 kms.
Total 4-wheeler driving : 60,000 kms.

My driving has reduced as the place I work since last 3 years+ is barely 5 kms. from my place. Due to work pressure, less personal traveling, more professional traveling.

Mine is 35000 km in my i10, and 49000 km and running on my i20.
Also drove about 2000 km in Europe in a beemer 320D. What an amazing 2000 km that was!

Nice thread. I assumed I would be well under 100,000. But turns out I have driven/ridden ~130,000km. ~40K in bike and 90K in Car. The car driving started in 2006 and has started shooting up in the last 2-3 years.

See a vote for >1 million km, but don't see it in the comments. Who would that be? Please stand up and take a bow
