    My wife hit about 17ish. I expect about 9K a year based on my previous cars because I have a summer car.

    Don't laugh at me. After 11 1/2 months, I have about 5200 miles. I have a very short commute to work and I have no life. Actually, I have another car. My average mpg for that time...about 53.

    You misread. He is an American, that purchase date is August, not May.

    (Yes, I know this won't help a bit in understanding how he drives that many miles.)

    Well, I for sure won't be laughing, as I may be on just about the same track. I've had my car for 2 months and 2 days, and it's around 1250 miles. I did a lot more driving than normal during the first month--new car & all. LOL

    That's what I thought, but I guess he must have used the European way as 36k miles since May is massive, but 36k miles since August is near impossible. :eek:

    I just passed the one year mark on my car on 8/28/10 with 16,200 miles. Still loving and learning about my car every day. It has to be one of the all time fun cars I have driven.

    Of course this shows my age and how I have matured from muscle cars to high mileage, low emission cars :)

    14,300 at one year, and at 13 months my lifetime MPG climbed over the 50 MPG mark. I can't figure out how I drove so many miles given I work from home 100% of the time!

    On my last car (2010 Toyota 4Runner) I put 305,000 miles over 10 years. My goal is to put over 300,000 miles on this Prius. I really take care of my vehicles. Here are pics of my 10 year old car with 305,000 miles before I sold it.

    Got it in the beginning of August '09. As of now I'm a little over 30k miles. Warranty will be gone by the end of the year :(

    I know this is not quite the request, but I'm doing a lot of driving at the moment. I got my car on May 21, 2010. Today, just under four months, I have just under 9,000. I ride a bike or walk to work.
