    His amount works out at about 30mpg for the car - not overly awful, just not overly efficient now.

    I Travel Approx 9 Miles to Work.. Takes around 30 Minutes providing I leave at the right time, My biggest issue is I travel down 2 of the main roads every morning at the same time as everyone else so it can be pretty fun if something has happened.

    If I'm out and about it's generally around 20-30 miles if out of the town centre, although the longest one I had to go to so far was Northampton (and be there for 8am) which is around 100 Mile. (normally a nice drive though at that time in a morning to be honest)

    1.1 miles by car as I need my tools on hand. Takes me 3 minutes in the morning and 5-8 minutes home.

    My current job, 5 mins to the main place. However as we support other organisations, if we're going there, not more than 20 minutes.

    My last job, it could be up to 1 -1 1/2 hours drive depending on time of day, traffic and what site (it was a multi-site organisation).

    20 miles and 40 minutes (average). Mostly motorway. By the way, anyone else noticed a fantastic difference between holiday and term time? During school holidays I can easily shave 10 mins off that time. Can always tell first day back for kids, traffic is a nightmare! How many people take their kids to school via a motorway??!

    I thought you were mental before then hehe

    Mines a 7 mile drive which takes no more than 10 minutes by car (just enough to be inside the on-call for emergency disasters and get involved in late night things), I used to work in the south lakes which was an hour drive each way, lovely school and nice drive in the good weather but was incredibly draining, when I got home I just wanted to sleep as a full on day took it fairly well out of you followed by the 1hr drive on high speed roads = one mentally dead me

    30miles door to door. Takes 40mins (great free road) to drive. Used to be 22miles but took and hour and a half cos of driving through the centre of Leicester everyday, I hated it! Love the commute now but would love to work where I live just because of costs of travelling. It's easily £300pm in fuel costs!
