Default Miles Driven

Got 98k on my tundra I bought almost 4 years ago. Most the miles have been put on the last 2 years as my business started to grow. After today I will have driven 400 miles this week. I prob average between 4-600 a week. Being in a central location of many big cities 30-60 miles to the west, east, north and south. Its easy to get spread out.

What do you average in miles a week?

300 in a week would be a lot. Many weeks I keep it under 150. We work in a densely populated area. Many projects are no more than 10 miles from home base. If we have a project that is 35 miles in one direction, that's a long trip for us. Remember though, it can take me an hour to go 10 miles sometimes!!!
