Default Most Miles Driven in One Month

I just checked the last time I changed my oil was exactly one month ago today. I had 93,000 miles on the Orphaned Olds. Today I went over the 96,000 mile mark. 3,000 miles in one month. That'* insane!!! But every weekend this past month my family and I went away. Once to Boston, the following weekend to Philadelphia, and twice to Newport, RI.
I know some of you have over 200,000 miles on your H-bodies. So I'm curious, what'* the most miles you put on your car in one month???

Wow that'* a ton of miles! I assume you're changing your oil again then?

Before I used to cruise every weekend and make some kills. On Friday and Saturday nights I 'd rack up maybe 40 miles a night on the same 3 mile strip. Back then I probably got at least 1000 miles a month, which seems normal I guess. I haven't done much cruisin' lately...tryin' to save money on gas so I can afford to fix up my car. I get no more than 800 miles a month right now.

20,000 mi per year is the national average.

Some do a lot more, some like me, a lot less.

3,000 per month or 36,000 per year is high but I know some travelling sales types that put on 200,000 mi in 3 years One was driving an Intrepid, the other an Accord. Guess which one got hauled to the wrecker being totally worn out.....right, the Intrepid. As much as I despise the ricers, the Accord was a 98, had 400,000 km and was still going strong....didn't burn any oil either.

Yeah, probably next weekend though when The Orphan will have about 3500 miles since the last change. My normal monthly mileage is approx 1750 miles per month. This past month I was just "a travelling man".

The most I've ever had was about 2500 or so. I went from Sioux Falls SD to Sandusky OH and back. But normally I get maybe 4000 to 5000 miles a year. If you like amusement parks and live near ohio head to cedar point there. Really fun time. Long lines but really fun.

I've only driven 9,000 miles in the past three years over my last three cars, but I'm a recluse so I have an excuse!

I guess I'm a good distance away from the annual average. At the rate I'm going I'll have about 20,000 miles in 2 years. I don't mind keeping my miles down though.

Hi

I change my oil every 3000 miles, which is a little over 2 1/2 weeks between changes.

I drove 58,000 last year.

This past summer in July I went on a few trips and I took the Bonne on every road trip. I put about 2800 miles on my car in just under a month.
