Plus the larger your operation (and the more trucks), the more people you are depending on to keep up with mileage logs. Such a pain. I found myself having to go back to the truck and look at my routes and trying to write in a week or more of mileage. Just turns out to be a headache for me.
Why are you keeping mileage logs on a work truck?

Work trucks are for work 100% of the time.

Personal vehicles are for personal (non-business) use.

If you stick to that, there is no need to log anything. Just keep gas receipts.

It is so much easier that way, and there are NO mistakes.
