Hmm, 210 miles a day from just west of Sacramento to Freemont in California SF bay area. Did that for a few months in a gas Civic and Ca gas prices, before I switched jobs and got commute down to 40 miles a day. Really sucked as an apprentice and big chunk of pay cheque is going to gas.

Bounced around from 1 mile or two to 10-15 miles over the last 10 years. But now it's 80 miles a day in a 1.8T Jetta. Likes PUG but will take RUG. But that's the trade off for getting bigger, newer house that doesn't cost close to 750k or sit on a postage stamp sized lot.

My work commute was 90 miles/day round trip from 1978 to 2004. Then I was transferred to another plant and my work commute was 150 miles/day round trip from 2004 to 2018. In 2018 I retired!!! Now I go several weeks before filing up and I love it.

A guy I used to work with would commute from Saskatoon SK to Edmonton AB - 525 KM. Not every day but several times per month. He rolled over 1 000 000 - correct a million - on his old diesel

My bro-in-law used to make a ~200km commute from his place in San Diego to Beverly Hills (northern part of LA, just before the hump into the SF Valley)...depending on when he hit the road, it could easily be a longer (time-wise) drive than that Yellowhead "commute" between 'toon-town and Edmonton.

Sometimes my daily commute has me driving from San Francisco Bay Area to San Diego while other days I just find myself staying in NorCal and only putting 400 miles in a day of client visits.

... and this is why I drive and love my VW Tdi. My goal is to get to 1 million miles on one of my vehicles. Combined I am almost 3/4 of the way there, but I would just love to see the odometer go to 999999.9 . It was quote nice to see it turn 500,000 miles.
The cars have been mostly trouble free: regular timing belts, oil changes, 3 sets of brakes on the sedan and 2 on the wagon, 1 alternator, 1 clutch on each car (due to power enhancements) and a few other replacements duel to incidents and not defective parts.
