The IRS suggests a log. You will still have to manually include the total miles driven as opposed to business miles.

 

For example, you could start with your odometer reading of 10,000 miles on January 1st. Every time you have business miles, jot the number down along with the date and purpose. Total them at the end and compare once you also have the ending odometer reading for the year.
