How many miles per year have you driven your Pup lately?

Post by pitch4pd »

I was talking to a co-worker of mine and they made a comment that my LUV has been in the lot more often than my '18 Tacoma over the past year and it got me to look up how many miles I put on the LUV over the past year. I was pleasantly surprised to see 10,000 miles in the past 12 months. That's about 2/3rds of my average annual mileage of 15,000.

I honestly don't remember all the maintenance involved for those 10,000 miles as it has been a good amount. I know at least 2 oil changes, a thermostat, coolant flush, re did the down pipe off of the turbo since it was leaking bad, new gasket on the intake/exhaust manifold since it was leaking, re-did my intake piping since it would blow off from boost occasionally, a few blown fuses, re-did the wiring for the rear lights since I lost brake lights, fixed a parasitic draw due to a stuck relay.

So yeah, how about you guys? How many miles on your PUP this past year and what did it take to keep it going?

It’s my around town wheels, except when I need my other truck. So, about 3000 miles per year (one oil change). This year it got new plugs and wires and I washed the engine compartment. (But it’s not a P’up :lol: )

My 1981 LUV gets more offroad miles than on road I put about 800 off road miles and 400 on road with very little maintenance, kept the 2.2 full of oil and diesel and runs like a top
