How do I write off unpaid work related mileage to temporary work locations?

I work in the oil field and travel from my home to West Texas/ New Mexico to the oil rig locations. The main office for my company is located in Conroe, Texas which I rarely must travel to.

How do I write off unpaid work related mileage to temporary work locations?

you need to enter in employee expenses the total mileage for the car, for the year, the mileage from home to the office and then the mileage for each trip to the oil filed locations.  The system will calculate the difference in mileage of going to the office or going to the oil rigs and calculate the deduction.
