A colleague of mine mentioned the use of an app called VehicleSmart - basically you input your registration number and it gives details about MOT history, road tax etc etc. Anyway, I put mine in and it showed up some very odd mileage readings. When I bought the car it was running high mileage, but as it had well looked after I wasn't too worried. But, looking back over the data I now wonder how accurate the mileage I am showing is.


Year Mileage Diff per year
2006 28656
2006 36066 7410
2007 30344 -5722
2007 41428 11084
2008 43854 2426
2008 32016 -11838
2009 69182 37166
2009 33367 -35815
2010 92993 59626
2010 34371 -58622
2011 35904 1533
2011 131720 95816
2012 37556 -94164
2012 170956 133400
2013 200521 29565
2014 206157 5636
2015 208995 2838
2016 213361 4366


Most of the readings are fairly normal - I'd expect 5-7000 per year, but clearly some are way out... 133400 in one year? and another where it did 94164 less! How is that possible? Did someone write them down incorrectly? What does this mean to me and my mileage? I find it odd that these can be so wrong when it is a digital readout in the car....
Any thoughts?

All i can think is that this process wasn't always electric and when transferring information on a database manually somebody messed up? But surely the process has been digital for long enough for that not to be the case?

could be a couple of things, since its an import they could be only counting miles in this country and reporting them, could be the conversion from kph to mph that has confused someone.
also multiple entries for each year could be from when someone updates the log book and enters an estimated mileage in the paperwork?

very spurious set of readings. no idea how the mileage can go up and down so much. may have to investigate further
