just checked what the difference between last year and the year before was
last year was 3746 and year before 3330 think that 400 miles etra is because I cant just walk down the shops anymore and have to go in car.

I have had my car just under 4 months & have done almost 2000 miles. (that's a lot for me, cos it includes a trip of 670 miles to the South East :-) )

Well, when my motability car went back in Jan (I'd had it for 3 years) it had just over 5000miles on the clock LOL (they gave 5k a year allowance but it's gone up now). I think this will be more as I'm running back and forth to shops and to parents now, though.

When in UK I was doing about 17-18000, over here so far in just less than 1 yr I have done 8000k or about 5000 miles.
Should do more, company pay for car and fuel lol.

my car is at garage for its MOT and looking at last years and years before I do around 4000 miles a year, not a lot compared to some.

How many do you do?
