This Year my MV6 should hit 200K.  I'm doing 300 miles a week and It's on 196,700 now.

Without going down to the lock up to check I don't know exact mileage of mine but it's something like 135,000 odd.It will never see 200,000,unless I put different clocks in it that say so :D

200,000 nice :y

at about 23 mpg about 8,700 gallons at say average 5 a gallon,  so 43,000 so far divided by 22 years makes about 2000 a year

 or about 40 a week for a luxury barge

Mines on 108825 so far but I doubt it will get anywhere near 200,000 miles on it....

My Omega passed the 180,000 mark a few weeks ago. The 190 is approaching 238,000.

If my roller skate hasn't hit 170k, it will by July...

That said it was at 169,100 when I bought it, so it could well be over already :D

Wow, never thought abut it in those terms.... ;D :o well that's a cheery thought!  :D



PS Thanks for the feedback gents, considering 3 years ago she'd been sat up a drive for 7 further years, I think most people in the family were resigned to her travelling no more than ten yards onto the scrapyard's lorry, let alone getting to 200k. Don't often pat myself on the back but yesterday was one of those days  :)
