I keep records on my computer. I list the date and mileage and what was done; I also list the manufacturer of the part and keep all the reciepts. I never keep washing or waxing records; I just wash it once a week and wax it every 2-3 months.

I also keep records and have them in a 3 ring binder. I took ordinary lined paper and made columns for Date, Miles (ex. 200,000) Work Performed, Where (ex. ABC motors, home) and Cost. This lined paper and receipts are kept in clear plastic page protectors. Also, for quick reference, when I write "Oil change" I darken in the "O" in oil. This way I can quickly find the last oil change entry.

I keep records on all work I do on my cars. It's easy since there is usually a receipt involved every time. I just write on the receipt when the particular item was installed. I also keep all my fuel receipts as it is becomes an MPG log. I guess I can also keep track of my yearly fuel expenses that way as well.

I should write it down but I dont.

I do the milage at fill up just to put a smile or a frown on my face depending what I get.

Since I am the king of over maintenance I am sure that I am not neglecting much.

I like to change all the fluids during the summer and change the oil in increments of 3000 to 4000 miles

I Should write it down but there are alot of things that I should do that I dont

I buy a crap load of filters at a time so that I can have them on hand. WHen I get the feeling to over maintain I go for it. I have a fetish for german filters and synthetic oil.

Have fun
