What do you want to find out?
If the method you have chosen to be the base of your mileage log is the Standard Mileage Rate the software will allow you to only record the time and location in the Web Dashboard in case of entering a refueling / charging.
This is because the Standard Mileage Rate is based on the ratio of your Business and Personal miles while the Actual Expense Method is based on actual expenses. Therefore if you use the Standard Mileage Rate, you are not required to record additional details such as the cost of your refueling / charging.
There are a few things you have to consider before choosing between the two methods. You can read more on the requirements and differences between the two methods in this article.
If you are eligible to use the standard mileage rate method:
1. When recording a new refueling / charging go to the Monthy trips menu then click on the Refueling / Charging menu point.
In Calendar view:
In List view:
If this view is more convenient for you, switch to List view by clicking the Useful tools button at the top right in Calendar view! Later, you will also be able to see the refuelings / chargings recorded in the mileage tracker app there.
Click on the sign on the day you want to record a refueling / charging!
2. Switch off the Additional Data button located in the bottom right corner of the Refueling window.
After switching off the button you can fill in the time and location of your refueling / charging. The program will not ask you to fill in the cost and quantity of the refueling / charging, and your current odometer reading.
Quick reminder: The software now allows you to enter your refuelings / charging with minimal data. However, if you would like to keep track of your refueled quantities and odometer readings to make sure that they are up to date, we recommend that you do not switch off the Additional Data button. The more information you have in your mileage logs, the smaller the chance of leaving contradictions in them, and the more confident you can be that your end documents are truly IRS-Proof.
