20,000 miles a year driving this past year. Have already put 15,000 on our new '08 F250. Most of those miles towing. (There wasn't a choice for a 3/4 ton truck in the vehicle option)
I'm average on the home heating/cooling useage.
However, where I rack up the points is work related.
I drive 28 miles each way to the airport (a key component in this equation as it relates to planes
) The good part of this test is the truck sits there for 7 days. I then fly commercially to start my 7 days on work schedule. So I figure I average 4 - 6 hours on each one of these trips to work. (I have airlined to Beijing to get to work
, BTW from Chicago to Beijing after watching all 6 movies in business class you still have two hours of flying to do yet). That works out to 46 flights a year.
Now the fun part, when I get to "work" I fly a long range business jet. One that can go 4,500 miles non-stop. I figure about another 100 trips of of 4-6 hours more or less.
The airline selections would only allow me to enter up to 99 so I had to spread those around a bit to get my total flights.
Until those that complain and try to scare us get serious then I'll get serious as then it may affect my job, know what I mean?
