Sounds like an IRS Schedule C form question, if you are deducting business use mileage. Not only want to know your business miles but the total amount of mileage you put on all of your vehicles. But I already have invoices on exactly what I charged my client for mileage that is also included in the 1099's as part of my income, so no room for them to argue, the basterds. Have no idea why the also want to know my total personal mileage, again the basterds.

Also my auto insurance company wants to know my mileage to determine rates, so I have to be a darn bookkeeper. I don't want to be a bookkeeper, I hate keeping records, but have no say in this matter, so on January 1st, have to write all this BS down. Go to hail when you say, Happy New Year, new year is a first class PITA.

Looking through my mileage logs I put on exactly 25,500 miles last year(365 days). Currently sitting at 88,000 miles with no out of pocket repairs yet(since new), only normal maintenance costs. I average 2200 miles a month, with July being the highest with 4200 miles.

There are a few things wrong with my car, which I may address next year. Trunk switch hasn't worked in 2 years(trunk mounted) and my transmission cooler lines are leaking and seems to have gotten worse. I recently noticed my cam sensors are leaking oil, which will be a powertrain warranty fix anyway.

Really do I have to answer this question ?

Considering that Me IT only lasted until the 24 th day of April 2015 I would have to guess maybe 400 miles ...I flew down to Dallas last year ..much easier and no frogging nightmares to contend with ..in other words I did sleep a lot better afterwards ..

Fly? No way not if I can drive. Spent 3-4 days in the Texas hill country(about an hour west of Austin) and drove non stop both ways in my cruze back in the fall of 2012. Much rather have my own car on a trip and don't have to deal with TSA BS.

It is also much cheaper to drive, at current prices that same trip with premium gas would only cost $170 round trip.

With last minute changes in my itinerary, use to be able to pay cash for a ticket and leave five minutes before the plane took off. This is sure history, now have to wait in long lines while somebody is playing with my underwear. From Central Wisconsin to Kansas City, would have been much faster if I drove. And was dead tired from waiting in long lines.

If you connection is delayed by the airlines, you don't get the next flight out, put you on standby, for a long as 4-5 days. And when you did get to Dallas, what did you do, get on another plane and fly back? Can cost a fortune to leave that airport unless you want to walk.

Planning on dressing like an Arab for my next trip so I don't have to put up with all this BS.

10,192 on the Cruze for 2015 that is occasionally used in business, really cut down since the FAA is going to GPS, don't have ladder tall enough to get into this. But until last year, was able to earn enough money to pay off my property tax bill.

Getting rid of all this ground navigation equipment for aircraft GPS that depends on code stored in flashram, good luck in flying with this. FAA fought this for years, but have new presidential appointed guys that helped him get elected. That don't know anything about nothing. So suffering severe budget cuts.

Could say, I told you so, but just have to start counting the number of aircraft crashes. 3M developed a system where a major airport needs only one VHF antenna, claims to save a bundle on maintenance. VHF can be very easily interfered with, but these idiots in charge don't know this.

I keep records of every fill up, so although not exact, are close enough for the task at hand.

January 2' 2015: 38,371
December 28, 2015: 42,797

42,797-38,371= 4,426 miles/yr

Proportionally, it was 4,475 miles per year.

IDK all I know I am looking at 61300 and I bought in Feb 2013. Lots of places I go are not really "near" my house besides I like to drive. Thus one of the reasons I would never sign up for one of those monitor my driving insurance savings plans like Allstate and Progressive have.

Should go back to the English system of measurement, your numbers will be a lot lower. Ha, the French and English were enemies for centuries, can't believe the English gave into the French.

English is based on human measurements, Metric on world dimensions, latter should be fine for building a world, but very awkward when trying to build a home.

Took those Metric guys 260 years to realize the gram is a unit of measurement of force, not earthly weight, not very bright. Way off on the meter, suppose to be exactly one million of those things between the equator and the north or south poles. Did have good yardsticks back then.

So if distance and weight are way off, so is everything else.

Our congress made us change all of our engineering blueprints from English to Metric in the latter mid 70's, because they thought this was the reason the Japanese were not buying our vehicles. But what the Japanese really wanted, was for us to put the steering wheel on the right hand side of the vehicle.

So why does Canada have steering wheels on the left side of the vehicle, sound unpatriotic to me. Can't recall the exact name of just one of our secretary of state, if it wasn't for this person, Canada would have been part of the USA. But I think it was Hillary, she certainly looks old enough.
