    Anyone use a maintenance log app for their rig? I’ve always just written stuff down in a phone note, but I figured there had to be a better way, started experimenting with some today, so far I like, “Vehicle Maintenance Tracker,” that is free. It also allows you to set mileage and date reminders and also upload docs with each entry.

    I use Excel. Keep track of maint, fuel fills, mods, etc.
    This allows easy access to fuel-economy averages or maint cost totals or mod cost totals or trip costs.
    Also makes it very easy to find time between items (i.e oil change, tire rotation, fluid adds, lube jobs, ...).

    I just write the odo reading on the receipt - and then enter all of the info at my computer (item, cost, mileage, date, etc).
    Different vehicles have their own tab at the bottom. I've done this since '97 and I have a file with about 12 tabs.

    This excel file helped me win the law suit against Subaru in court!

    I have used Fuelly (see my .sig below) for several cars and motorcycles for a few years now.

    Another vote for Fuelly. Used it for years for the motorcycle and recently added a Tacoma to the family.

    Hmm fuelly seems nice, not sure how I feel about paying annually to be able to add photos/PDFs to the logs.

    If you are familiar with Google Drive and it's suite of office apps, you can use Google Forms to create an entry form for yourself.

    I created one with 3 questions (1) odometer (2) a multiple choice selection of the maintenance completed (oil change, air/cabin filter, etc.) (3) "Other" for noting anything else. Google timestamps and logs each entry submittal automatically.

    Share the form publically, allowing "only those with the link". This way you can bookmark the link and access without having to log in each time.

    Yep, there is an option to allow file uploads as one of entries.

    Another option to Fuelio is an (andoid only I think) app called Fuelly. I like the UI a little better compared to Fuelly. They don't have a website like Fuelio but that doesn't really concern me.

    Note - I got my Tacoma last month and am working from home thanks to COVID so there's no much Taco fueling data on there.

    Main view when you open the app:

    The + lets you add a fuel up, oil change, etc.

    Then they have a ton of statistics on your vehicle as well. This is just a sample, but any graph/statistic you can think of they have available.

    You can also set reminders for the future to change your oil, air filter, etc... and they can be set at a certain mile count or recurring.
