My Jeep has less than 30,000 in 4 years, only vehicle I've ever owned to be so lucky.

42 miles per day. 210 per week. Wife drives 40 miles per day, 200, but maybe more since her employer sends her places, but they pay her $0.31/mile.

50-75 a week.
that is just to and from.

I usually do just enough driving for work that at .505, I get a tank a gas every two weeks out of them. I fill up about every two weeks.

This is in my Plymoth Breeze. If I use the school van, I could go about every three weeks between fill ups.

It used to be 66.6 round trip. Was a fitting number for a TJ nicknamed the Red Devil.
Now, I've relocated to 9/Mound from the Tech Center and I'm actually down to 66.4 miles round trip.
That's $100/week in gas for me.

right now I am doing 6.8 miles one way to work. I drive fork trucks up and down the roads hauling cars farther everyday at work.
if I ever get back over driving for the other dept. I could put on 300+ a day
