Ute jump starts right away but will go flat every couple of days, sometimes every day.
Is my alternator gone?

Get the battery checked out first.
Anything you put in or done recently that you can possibly narrow down too ?

I put a multimeter on the cable at the back and it showed 17.3 volts so the regulator is gone in it, so just need to find a good wreckers in Geelong area to buy a replacement.

Cable at the back???

And youll probly be up for a new battery also unless its a deep cycle one,
They dont like going flat,

But, good job on finding the issue,

17v would have boiled the battery. That is a very high reading.
Should measure around 13 to14.5v when you test the battery terminals when its running.
