I know they go on and on and on for miles,just wondered (inspired by similar post) what the highest mileage diesel on here is. Mines 2000 with 90k.

Always nice to see high milers, Ive got a 2001 115 PD TDI with 80K on the clock, and that clock is ticking over pretty quick so its good to know there's plenty left.

I have a friend who is a Taxi Driver, 51 plate Bora 648,000k, think it is a 115 or he may have the 130 not to sure, but it is the same spec and age as my 130 golf which has 80k.

He has spent a fair amount on servicing though?

Wow, just done some maths on that....

365 days per year

less weekends = 104 days

= 261 days per year

x 4 years = 1044 days

= 620 miles per day !!!..... And the way most taxi drivers drive, he'd as more than likely get that out of a single daily tank full !

Long way to catch up in my 2001 TDI with 104k.

It does seem a lot when you put it like that but that is what is on the clock, mees seen it.  He has also taken it to Germany quite a few times.  His mate has a 97 Merc some square thing not sure of model, petrol, with over 800k on it.  He does not use it for work anymore but still has it and it is still going well.  Something to be said for German engineering i think.
