Hey, guys!

I'm learning English.

I have got a little bit confused about "more mileage vs more miles."



A: Although the vehicle owned by Lomax has more mileage on it...

B: Although the vehicle owned by Lomax has more miles on it...


Which one is correct? A, B... both acceptable?

Thank you.

    Both are acceptable and both mean the same, although "a greater mileage" would have been better.

    "Mileage" is an uncountable noun and is understood as "total number of miles".

    I think what you want to say in (B) is "has more miles on the clock".
    We would probably change (A) to "has a higher mileage" (and take out "on it").
