    Business miles are probably about 10-12k, but then add a trip to Colorado, and other misc. driving and I'm up around 20k for the year.

    around 18 to 20K. it doesn't help that i live around 20 miles out of town. high gas prices and alot of driving isn't a good combination.

    I never put more than 3,000 a year on my work trucks just for mowing lawns. My dump truck never got more than 1500 miles in a year. my personal vehical gets about 9,000 miles per year.
