How to Use the Mileage Log Template in Google Sheets

Below we explain how to use our mileage log template in Google Sheets:


Enter the date of the trip in the format of year-month-day. This standardizes the dates for easy sorting and filtering.

Trip Purpose

Describe the purpose of the trip. Be specific; for example, "Client meeting at ABC Corp" or "Supply run to XYZ Supplies."

Starting Mileage

Enter the vehicle's mileage before you start your trip. This should be recorded directly from the vehicle's odometer.

Ending Mileage 

Enter the vehicle's mileage immediately after the trip concludes. Again, this should be taken from the vehicle's odometer.

Total Miles 

This cell will automatically calculate the total miles driven for the trip by subtracting the Starting Mileage from the Ending Mileage. If you're manually filling this out, subtract the Starting Mileage from the Ending Mileage.

Rate per Mile 

Enter the reimbursement rate per mile. This rate can vary depending on the policy of your organization or the current standard mileage rate provided by the IRS or your country's tax authority. For example, in 2023, the IRS standard mileage rate is 62.5 cents per mile for business travel.

Total Reimbursement

This cell automatically calculates the total amount to be reimbursed for the trip by multiplying the Total Miles by the Rate per Mile. Ensure to set the correct reimbursement rate per mile for accurate calculations.

Additional Notes

Any additional information about the trip can be entered here. This could include tolls, parking fees (if you're including these in your mileage log for reimbursement), or any other relevant details about the trip.
