    Takes me 10 minutes on a train, 25 minutes sometimes in a car.

    Used to be 30 miles in 40 mins and that was bad.... Then it was 2.5 miles in 15 ish mins (cycling) which was okay, but I broke my wrist in a nasty fall and lost alot of my confidence, so moved next to work now it's about 2 minutes walk.

    Both the cycling and walking made me alot happier, as it doesn't mean I'm getting angry/fraustrated on the roads (also I saved , after getting rid of the car)

    Older cars still don't really have these.... Best way I found is to fill up and then next time you fill up devide the amount you put in by your trip meter.

    my current car does have an onboard readout as well btu its useful to keep a log of what the car does and record servicing etc in one place so i can see if mpg suddenly drops as unless you constantly reset the mpg in the car it would have to plummet badly to alter an average set over 10'000 miles

    I could be the shortest, less than 500 metres door to door. I can be in an emergency situ in less than 3 mins.

    I live about 8 miles from work. I can usually complete the journey in 15 mins. However to do that I have to set off very early. I am usually first in.

    I used to work in Southwark. That was a bus, coach and tube trip away. If the connections worked just right I would usually make it in in around two hours. Often it was much longer. This made for very long days.

    ahem, ---> How far do you travel to work, how long does it take?
    3 mins? that's not 500m, more like 3 quarters of a mile!

    Well he did say < 500m, so that could mean 400 or even 300m, either of which is less than a quarter of a mile and in an "emergency" situation you're likely to test your physical fitness so I guess you could run that distance in 3mins =)

    11 miles for me. 20-25mins to get there, 35-40mins to get back (I come home in during worst peak time traffic). Quickest I have done the journey is just shy of 20mins during the middle of the night!

    Wolverhampton to Ludlow around 35miles each way so 70miles per day.

    Takes around 50min each way, lots of long straight countryside roads often fairly empty of a morning beside tractors

    2 1/2 hours each way, contracting last year in Stoke Newington, London. I actually live in West Sussex, distance wasn't too great, but combination of BR, Underground and bus all added up.

    Used to be well under 3 miles (I can actually see my old school from my window now (well I could if it wasn't dark)) and took under 5 minutes in the car. Never walked it unbelievably!

    New school ~5miles through the back streets of SW Birmingham which takes about ~20mins each way. I leave at 07:15 in the morning and between 15:05-15:30 in the afternoon. Adding 5 minutes on in the morning equates to 15 minutes extra waiting in traffic.

    My OH gets the bus into Bham city centre every day and takes her ~1 hour each way and it's slowly driving her mad!

    I suppose wage makes a big difference how willing you are to travel most people say "how far?" when I tell them 35miles, even tho im on one of the lowest pay brackets

    Use around 8-9 in fuel per day and 50mins each way, but by train would cost around 20 due to bus to station (west midlands travel) then from west midlands to shropshire (via ariva) and take near 2hours each way + a little 15min walk to work from the station.

    Seems to me there will be more and more cases of petrol poverty coming seeing as how our wages are so criminally low
