Short answer: you deduct expenses on the vehicle OR the mileage at the IRSs mileage rate for the tax year.

I deduct mileage. Not expenses.

Thanks for the info!  May be a dumb question but do you just track in a notebook??

You could use a notebook and write down mileage or there are many apps you can use to track the miles.
