It'* about a 12mile drive for me 10-15mins. I live about 1/2 mile from the freeway which takes me to work so it'* all freeway and normally a good pace once I'm on it since th roads aren't to busy yet.

This is tricky...I take the bus....My bus commute is 14 miles one way. My car commute to the Park N Ride is 2 miles.
I put 4 miles on my car per day....Wooo hoo. I can't remember the last time I put fuel in my car...
I have been doing that for about two years....

about 30 miles to work going 65+ except for when people go the speed limit and hold up a hugh line of cars and no one wants to pass. Its stupid too you can see the car that is holding up everyone when I finally get to them I feel like ramming them. But then that would suck =/

I had an overdrive issue with my 30K transmission, and I couldn't hit 4th gear. I got 12 miles to the gallon on the highway. It'* 26 highway miles to work, and then 26 miles back. The issue is solved now, and I'm at 16mpg. 91+ octane gas prices are phenomenal.

Was 11 miles up until last week. Got a new job.

Now I'm driving 41 miles. It'* all good though. $ talks.

The Bonnie is the perfect commuter: comfortable, ample power, and good on gas.
