How many miles have you been modding for??

I know, I know. The best thing to do to save fuel is to not drive at all, but since we do, and some do alot I just wanted to see the range for miles you are putting on your daily driver every month. Purpose of this for me is that I just got done entering all my notebook data for one of my vehicles and realized it has been 31,517 miles and over 1800 gallons of gas I have consumed in 18 months. Let's use miles per month as a common unit, thanks.
Oh, and for me the sad number is 1750 and that's why I'm here.

Oh, Hell.. I don't know... checking my logs, it looks like at least 340 miles per week, so if I do a little basic math:

340/7 = 48.57/day

48.57 * 30 = 1457 miles per month, approximately.

Damn... I drive too much.

EDIT - seems more like 340 miles every 5 days... but I'll stick w/ the ~1500 a month estimate.

hum 65miles each way was 5 days a week still am most of the time.
130 a day
650 a week
2817 a month
33800 a year

i went from 20-23 (just going to work) to 26-30mpg
so at 22 mpg i would use 128 gallons a month at 2 bucks a gallon 256 bucks a month
at 28 mpg i wouldd use 100 gallons a month at 2 bucks a gallon 200 bucks a month

so i saved 56 bucks a month on just gas a month at current gas prices $112 at 4 bucks a gallon like last summer.

before when i use to drive my 98 taco , just around i got 17-20 mpg. so i gained alot from here, but saving fuel wasnt the main goal. i wanted to make it 3 days on a tank, which i easly attained, now 4 when it warms up

then i have the oher two cars, i put 20k on the camry since i bought her new in jan of 08 plus the 33k in my truck. then we have the third car was a tc now a new tacoma


now my wife about 156 miles a month.....
6 miles to work
12 round trip
36 miles a week (she works 3 days)
1872 miles a year
