How Many Miles Can a Vehicle Do?

This is a question we are going to answer in this blog post, and we thought it may be interesting to know how many miles a vehicle can do before it ends up in the scrap yard.

Unsurprisingly the list only consists of diesel vehicles and for the most part of it, the vehicles were commercial vehicles. In order to compile this list, we analysed over 1 million unique vehicle mileage records.

We would also like to state, we only included vehicles that are now scrapped. We did this for 2 reasons:

  • They give better data than still “active” vehicles that are not at the end of their life.
  • Nobody is using these vehicles anymore.

Top 10 high mileage vehicles we found

We would like to state that we did not include any vehicles that are still “active”. We obtained all the mileage data from MOT records; we also removed any vehicles from this list that looked like they had high mileage by error.
