My wife and me drive about 35K each year between us.
We both drive about twenty five miles to work each morning, so about fifty miles a day each.
Figuring in holidays and vacations, about 60% of the miles we do are to and from work.
How many miles do others here do in merely commuting?

I put 21.5k a year on the Sonata as my daily driver, have taken it out of town a couple times too. It's what I usually drive for my 67 mile a day, round trip commute.

The Jeep I've coincidentally owned for exactly a year as of today. I've put 4,300 miles on it this past year. Every couple weeks I drive it to work and I pull my trailer with it sometimes to the dump. But I usually use it for off-road desert driving. I'd like to start taking it out more often if I could get some more time.

So about 26k miles a year is what my cars get. Using a calculator it's 17,500 a year just for work.

Probably 80-85% of my driving is to work.

I would agree with this. I've been commuting between 90-100 miles to work and back, five days a week. Otherwise I make relatively short trips as most of my "toys" are shipped to me laugh

Quite a bit but I try pretty hard to make errands part of my commute home.

I drive a lot for work, in the busiest year I drove 100,000km (60K miles) in one year. I got an award that year. LOL

I have racked up 1.5 Million Kilometers (937,000 miles) since I got my license. wink

I stopped commuting in 1990. Just not worth it for $2/hr more.its not uncommon for commuters here to spend 6-8 hrs a day stuck in traffic. I live 6 miles from work.

My commute is about 50 miles a day. At work I put on almost 200 miles in the day. On the weekends I rack up anywhere from 100 to 300 miles. I sure cover some ground in a week.

I have a round-trip daily commute of 110 miles. This is 4 or 5 times per week, depending on whether I work from home for one day that week. Overall, this works out to about 30,000 miles driving per year, roughly 90% of which is commuting miles.

My new job is 80 miles away. So 161 miles round trip. Good thing I don't have to go every day, and can fly there from time to time. Probably make 2 trips per week and stay overnight 2 nights.

My commute is 90.4 miles round trip, 90% highway.

On the weekends if we're on the highway and my wife's driving I'll say "schooch a little left, there's a pothole coming up" or stuff like that.

After the third or fourth time telling her of the upcoming road imperfections to watch out for, I'll be told to "turn on the radio on the way to work instead of memorizing the road" lol.
