Average mileage? in Towcar Talk Posted December 1 Me, around 14k per year, her around 4k per year; I'm semi retired my wife is a full time carer. Both our mileages have increased since moving to a semi rural location, there is no shopping or any service within walking distance, everything requires a car. Even then local shopping is poor and better shopping is 12 to 15 miles away where previously it was all on the doorstep. Public transport is virtually none existent so use of a car is essential.
