Got a company car that has done 9000 miles in 18 months since i had it. The C2W bike has done about the same amount of miles in the same time .

Yes, and wouldnt do without one....for the freedom it gives you. Sparingly used, you appreciate it more.
Commute by bike every day bar one and only really use the car for distance travelling.
9000 miles a year, 90% of that is travelling at weekends to Nottingham, holidays and occasionally Hull.

Yes, but mainly due to wife's mobility issues. Although if I wasn't married to her, I probably wouldn't see the point in getting rid of the car.

Yes, and a bit of a car nut, but both of our cars were bought for practicality....ish (mine for the toys.....)

Had my Wife's Yaris since they came out on the market 11 years ago - been brill - no intent to ever sell/change. Used daily, does about 7k miles......looks mint...(yes I clean our cars like the bikes).........

My Nissan Primera - bought at 10 Months old (saved about 40% of RPI) when the cars had just come out on the market - had it 7 years - now only used at weekends and when we go away - 4k miles a year now (mostly summer miles) - does about 10 miles a week in winter.... has been suffering lack of use.... a full service by myself and injector cleaning has it running sweet again...

Have thought of getting rid of mine due to the complex electronics etc, but it still works 100%... Tax and insurance is about £60 a month though - I service the car.

I suppose our lifetime car CO2 is low though...... my FIL is on his second Prius in 3 years..Ouch environmental impact here..........
