    Most modern engines should be capable of 1M miles (in test conditions)
    However the bodywork and chassis isn't capable of that, probably between 250K and 300K miles, and the engine around 500K miles

    Mine will do 1M miles if I take into account wear and tear as Mr Holmes has
    Spring broken, replace it
    Gearbox gone, fix it
    Brakes worn out, fix it

    The car is only 16 years old
    Claims it takes £80 to fill the tank, must be a rather small tank

    Would I want to drive around in a 16 year old car with 1M miles on it?
    No chance

    Read the article, he doesn't use the taxi for personal use, on holidays he uses a motorhome

    Parallels there to my own situation
    I use my personal car to get to/from work
    On work business I use the company car

    Very few people look at the odometer when they get in a taxi, they just look at the paint work
    However I have been in a few private taxis that clearly haven't been looked after... or hoovered in several days
