Just Turned 160,000 Miles

Recommended Posts

I have about 143,400 miles on my 7A-FE, 13,207.1 of those miles were mine and the rest were my dads.

 

It would take me approximately 3 years and 29 days to reach 160,000 miles given my current average miles per day.

 

;)

 

(160,000 miles - 143,400 miles) / (13,207.1 miles / 895 days) = Approximately 1,125 days or 3 years 29 days

:P

So you did 13,207.1 miles in one year?

That means you do about 36 miles a day?

 

No, your missing the quantity in the equation: (13,207.1 miles / 895 days).

 

13,207.1 miles in 895 days, or about 14.8 miles per day.

Ok - I thought you only had the car for a year and the 13,207.1 was a years total miles.

So if you have had it for 895 days, that means about 895/365=2 years, 5 months, 15 days?

Yeah, plus the current tank of gas I am on which is still going. I have 170.8 miles on the tank and last filled up on 12/03/06.

 

So 13,207.1 miles (895 days of recorded driving) + 170.8 miles (current tank, 12/03/06 to 12/20/06 and still going) = 13,377.9 miles through.

 

895 days + 17 (the difference between 12/03/06 to 12/20/06) or 912 days.

 

To be more accurate on the calculation:

 

(160,000 miles - 143,522 miles) / (13,377.9 miles / 912 days) = approximately 1,123 days or 3 years and 27 days.

 

My Odometer reading is 143,522 miles (just went outside and checked) so that means I've been driving the car since it had an odometer reading of 130,144 miles on it. Therefore, my dad put 130,144 miles on the car from 1993 to 2004 before he gave it to me, and I have put 13,377.9 miles on the car from when he gave it to me in 2004 to today.

Good calculations. Take a few more trips in 2007 and you will reach the 160,000 mile mark sooner.

Wow, 160k miles! It seems like a generation away for me. I bought my 98' Corolla at 50,800 miles back in May 05'. It's up to about 62,400 now. In 20 months, I've put on 11,600 miles.

 

Calculations:

 

Average miles per year: 6,960

Average miles per week: 133.5

Average miles per day: 19

Tank Capacity: 11.3 Gallons

Estimated average MPG: 29.5

Best Average Calculated: 32.2

Driving Conditions: 50% stopless driving, 50% stop-and-go

Bad Driving habit(s): Fast acceleration

Miles on full Tank: 333.35

Time per fill-up: once every 17 days (estimate)

 

At my current stats, it would take me little over 14 years to hit 160k, around the end of 2020. To hit 300k would require me about 34 years and 1.5 months, or around February of 2041. I'll be a 54 year old man by then (I'm 20 now). I hope I'll be able to hover convert my car by then and add Mr. fusion to the engine.

 

As for whether 160k is a good milestone, I don't know. I always thought that 100k was "the big moment", when a car passes its prime, but what do I know! It seems like everyone is driving these Corollas to their last breathe. I know of a 1988 Honda Civic in my old neighborhood that has 360k miles on it! The guy had to get a new engine for it at 280k. I suppose there is no real limit to any car's lifespan since parts can always be replaced, but rather there is a point at which the driver says it's no longer worth it to spend any more money to maintain their car. The point at which you need an engine swap is usually the killer for even the most reliable cars.

I got a good chuckle from your comment.

Don't be so sensitive, man. It was just a little humor.

Keep posting and have a Merry Christmas or Happy Holiday.

I am 50 miles from hitting 190,000 miles. I should be in the 200K miles in 2007. I am definitely going to stop and take a picture when the odometer hits 200,000.

There used to be a Toyota club that you could join when your car reached 100,000 miles and another place for 200,000 miles.

Is that still around?, if so, you could join up.

I'd make sure that the timing belt has been changed since 120K.

 

Had a Camry that I took to 246K before I gave it up before it became a problem. After 200k the only repairs I needed to make were new CV joints from my driving style, and as far as age goes, a new radiator and had the connecting point between the tank and the and fill point rust out (that was an interesting gas station visit).
