So its back to Uni for me this week and with a bunch of academic readings to do I feel its time for some procrastinating

I was going through the used cars in the paper the other day for something to do when I came across a 2002 Astra with 12,000km's/7,500 miles on the clock! I didnt even know that was possible. My challenge is to see who does the least amount of km's/miles per year in their Fiesta.

I probably wont get very far with about 25,000km's/ 15,500 miles a year

Got My car brand new is 4 years old and has done 13,000 miles so far . So that's 3,250 miles a year average .. Don't drive to work so my car is a weekly shopping / road trip machine ;)

I've been to France - Belgium - Germany - Holland on the ferry in it and popped up to London ... :)

12,000/yr. Mine's an '02 with 95,000 on the clock. Had 90,000 when I got it late September last year. One before that had 72,000 but had terminal engine damage from a previous owner so had to go.

Ah yes, good old Uni. I have an exam on Tuesday and revision has taken over my existence! Work full time hours Monday-Friday then revision every night and weekend! Uni day is Saturday for me 10-16:30

Back on topic, I have clocked up 5,400 miles in the first 12 months of ownership. I use my car every day in the week for going to work (14 mile round trip) and then to Uni most Saturday's (32 mile round trip).

Looks like Lee is winning at the moment with 3,250 miles, is there anyone with less?

Car has done 32000 in 19 years :)

Crazy to think what you do in 19 years, I manage to clock up in about 2 :o

Woah thats a brutal schedule - I cant complain being classified as full time with 12 contact hours, 2 days a week and work the other 3 but the 200-250 pages of academic reading a week is a killer. At least I get to do plenty of driving which is nice and relaxing! Best of luck for the exam

About 6-7k miles per year, mostly commuting just 17 miles a day. The car is 5 years old and has just over 28k miles on it :). I bought it 2nd hand though, still feels like a new car to drive.

I don't do a lot at all,if i do 50miles a week area.

Last year i did around 2500 to 3000 miles,its mainly there for emergencies/local shopping.

Last car had 25,000 on the clock.had it just under 3 years,32,000 when i sold it.

This car gets a good blast once a month on a long road.
