Daily Driver

Okay, I'm sure this question gets asked all the time, but I coudln't find it in the search function for some reason,
So
Is your Jeep your daily driver? Or do you have something else that gets better gas milage to do your going to work, the grocery store, etc?

Its my daily driver, my other vehicle is a 2002 Ford Lightning. it has 60K miles on it.. and its a tossup as to which gets worse gas mileage. however, the office is 6 miles away and I generally dont put 100 miles on it in a week.

It's my daily driver. I work at home so it's used mostly for errand runnings and various outings to the beach. .

My TJ is not my daily driver, I just use it for offroading, camping, hunting and fishing. I will drive it occasionaly to a car pool spot for work. My daily driver in a 2013 Jetta TDI, I get about 45mpg out of it and I love it.

My 2011 JK is my daily driver, but the gas mileage doesn't bother me in the least because I love the vehicle, and work is only 1/2 mile from home. I put 3000 miles on it the week I bought it (moving from South Carolina to Arizona), but have only put 2500 on it in the last 5 months.

2013 JKU Sahara is my daily driver. I travel quite a bit so it goes to the airport and back a couple of times a month. When not traveling I work from home so gas mileage is not a big concern. It s my daily driver.

My '97 TJ is my DD. 221k miles and counting! (I bought her a year ago at 211k). But that doesn't mean she can't handle herself.

EDIT: Don't know how or why that second picture got in there. That isn't me. Same rock, different Jeep. Lol

DD and weekend warrior. I've been hard on it during a few trail rides, and in 9 years it has only missed going to work on monday twice. Last time it was factory tie-rod, this time it was factory drag-link.
