Used to be a black cab owner/driver and know of quite a few with very high miles on them.

My last cab got to 370,000miles, But you could disable the milage with a flick of a switch, So was a lot more than was showing.

Did know of a metro cab doing 980,000miles here in Swansea in just over eight or nine years. It was out 24/7 with four drivers. It had five engines over it's life.

Also my old work place had a merc E320 which had 640.000miles going form Cardiff to London and then up north many times a day driving the DM around the place for Goverment meetings. That took about 10 years to do.

Biggest Lexus mileage I've seen is 270,000miles on a LS400 N plate 1996.

I reckon the space shuttles have to be the highest mileage vehicles...

Well, no-one said it had to be a car!! A quick Wikipedia suggests that Columbia is out in the lead with 125,204,911 miles, and Discovery is in second place with 115,140,673 miles. Of course Columbia won't be racking up any more, but Discovery is still in service and will be used up until 2010 when the whole shuttle program is due to end.

Whilst up in space they orbit the earth 16 times a day, at 26,000 miles per orbit, giving a *daily mileage* of 416,000 miles!!!

I used to have a 1990 Vauxhall Cavalier 2.0i, the CD model with the fake wood and electric windows on the back, when I did retire it because the boot was starting to fall out, it had done about 230,000 miles on the original engine. Admitidely, it used to turn oil into cream cheese after 1,000 miles but it hung in there in the end.
