Recording the starting odometer reading


It is highly recommended to have a monthly starting odometer reading for each month. If you have a starting and ending odometer reading for each month, the difference between the two numbers is how many miles you can realistically travel. For an IRS-proof result, use your odometer readings as a base to make sure that your trips realistically correspond with your max. drivable distance for the month.

Note: Your end-of-month odometer reading for a given month will be used as the starting odometer reading for the following month.

If you have purchased your new vehicle in the middle of the month, select the day of the pick-up and enter the odometer reading at that time of the vehicle pick-up (there are always a few miles in a brand new vehicle already, so ‘0’ is impossible).
If you previously used some kind of mileage logging software or kept track of your mileage otherwise, set the first day of this month as the starting date for your mileage log in the dashboard and add the odometer reading recorded at the end of the previous month.
