I was doing 6,000 miles per month regularly when I worked 60 miles away from home. I loved it, and it really racked up the miles on my SDL.

Not my mileage, but there is the Volvo owner who has logged 2 million miles in his 1965 P1800. Yes that's 2,000,000 miles on a gas engine. The engine was rebuilt once at the 630,000 mile mark. Volvo gave him a brand new car at the million mark, then another one at the 2 milion mark. That's over 54,000 miles a year for 37 years. The guy's name is Irv Gordon

Yeesh, and I thought 15K miles in 6 months was a lot! That was making a 300 mile sone way trip about once every two weeks, along with a 60 mile daily commute... $50 to $80 (depending on the price of fuel) once a week, and people are wondering why I decided to sell the van...
