The essential car book

In the past two months, my wife and I have gotten rid of both of our cars and purchased two to replace them, one new and one used. In all four of our cars, though, there’s one thing that remains consistent — Dome vehicle logs.

These cheap, simple logbooks are where we keep track of our gas mileage and costs, noting down miles traveled on each tank, total miles, cost to fill up, and cost per gallon as well as the date and gas station chain. Interestingly (or, perhaps, not so much), we don’t use the auto mileage logbook to keep our information, but a modified version of the vehicle expense record because I like the layout better.

It’s a simple thing, but this logbook comes in mighty handy when keeping an eye on how well our cars are doing in terms of mileage and how much we spend on gas per month. In addition, we keep our gas receipts in the middle of the book. Huyen sorts hers newest to oldest while I do the oppposite.

I should note that while I endorse Dome’s vehicle logs, I don’t have any experience with their jock strap.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
