How many miles have you done in Lockdown?

Hi

I had my car MoT'D last week.

I had only done 1173 miles in the last year.

The vast majority of which was to medical appointments.

I have saved a fortune on diesel, which I am spending on the garden.

How about you?

Re: How many miles have you done in Lockdown?

Pretty much the same here. Have hardly driven anywhere and then I used two cars for the mileage done. One of the batteries failed because it was not recharged while driving.

When one of the cars was being serviced the mechanic said that the brakes would have to be renewed. The old ones would only go another 4,000 miles as a max. Then he looked at the mileage done, smiled and said that that would not be necassary before next year. No rush.

About 40K. Even so, several weeks ago my insurance company mailed out refund checks to everyone due to reduced claims and miles of members.

The mileage between last Feb mot and this year’s was around 1,400 miles. Mostly short shopping trips, or seeing my sister. I think the longest drive was to Cromer.

Probably only around a thousand miles.

Incidentally, my insurers have written to me saying that I can claim money back (Churchill) I haven't looked into it yet.

Re: How many miles have you done in Lockdown?

What an interesting question. I keep a record of my fuel consumption so I went back and had a look. What a difference to a normal year!

I have done about 5000km since the beginning of 2020 and that included a week's trip to Lake Cargelico.

It has to be said that my car is really only used for longer trips because I can walk to my local shopping centre and mall and usually catch the train to go to Sydney but I still knock up 20000 to 30000km in a normal year so 5000km in almost 18 months is a big drop.

BTW I haven't visited Sydney or used public transport since January 2020

Re: How many miles have you done in Lockdown?

My daughter sold her car at the start of lockdown and hasn't owned a car for almost a year ...granted she uses her partners on occasions. Have to admit I have hardly driven at all this year in fact I think I may have lost some driving confidence.....note to self get back behind the wheel
