Post How far do you drive daily?

Just thought I'd pop in and ask a question or 2... I've noticed one member that goes 4 months between fillups, some go monthly. I drive 130 miles a day (65 miles one way to work). I usually fill the tank 3x a week.
  • How far do you drive on a daily basis?
  • How often do you fill your tank or refuel?

I used to drive about 110 miles per day, but my new job is only 7 miles away. I come home for lunch, so if I do no other driving, I do 28 miles per day.

I drive both my Honda Beat and my Beater, so tank fillups are generally less than once per week.

About 18 miles each weekday. More on Saturday and Sunday.

About 15,000 miles per year. I know that averages out to about 300 miles per week, but a lot of those miles are weekend/vacation trips.

27.4 miles round trip for my daily commute with 90% of that trip being Highway driving to suit my VX. That is for every day that students have school...so that equates to 174 days a year. Which means that 4767.6 miles a year come from that job. Then there are the random trips to friends' houses to work on cars and the odd jobs I do during the summer to keep a flow of income.

I fill up anywhere between 10 and 20+ days depending on trips to friends' houses.

Lets see...

Just by driving to work and school I do around 170 miles per week. That comes to 24 miles per day (but it would be higher then that because I do other driving too). So 25-35miles per day would be a good guess. And 2 weeks per tank seems about average.

I'm driving 40 miles each way, plus the daily trips to the driving range at lunch for mental decompression from my job. If I can push my CRX HF over 50 mpg, I might be able to pull off fillin git once a week.
