Am I Wasting My Car?

Hello,

I own a 2006 1.8tdci with 76K on the clock. I have put 10k miles on it in 12 months but this is going to be much less as I have moved 4 miles from work.

Am I wasting my car by driving such a short way? the route to work is on an A road, so I get 60 mph at least.

I live just 1.5 miles from my work, but still drive in as A it takes about an hour or more to walk, B I work nights so it's safer all round and C I live in the sticks

The car does get a chance to stretch its legs at least once a week though when I go to the next town 20 miles away

That engine won't have a DPF so you should be fine.

I'm sure you'll still take it longer journeys every now and then.
