About how many miles have you logged on your work truck(s) so far this year?

Right now I'm at 1910 miles for the entire season. A right tight route I'd say.

That is tight. I go about 275 miles per week.

You may want to check the math on that.

6 months times 30 days (average) times 120 km isn't 42,000 km. It's 21,600 km. It would be a lot closer if it were 120 km each way or 240 km round trip. All of this is assuming that you worked every day, 7 days a week.

I'm with jug head. About 15K miles so far this year, yesterday was the first day the trailer wasn't hooked up to it, only because I bought a new trailer. An hour later, the new trailer's hooked up to it. :)

I must have a tight route too, I'd say if I had to guess its been about 3,000 miles. The amount of gas receipts doesnt show for it though.

The breakdown is this:

distance from me:

1 @ 16 miles (weekly, Mom's house, gotta do)
1 @ 5 miles (every 10 days)
1 @ 4 miles (bi-weekly)
4 @ 3 miles (bi-weekly)
2 @ 2 miles (bi-weekly)
4 @ 2 miles (weekly)
5 @ 1 miles (weekly)
2 @ < 1 miles (bi-weekly)
10 @ < 1 miles (weekly)

It usually works out to about 27 customers per week. Trips to the gas station are taken along the route.
