Default May 2008 Mileage tracking

This is a month by month record of mileage. Every time you make an entry it will be added up and recorded together according to the fuel type and car/year you are driving.
THIS IS NOT intended to be an individual tank record (or a partial tank record for that matter). So if you want to wait and post all of your tanks in MAY at once, it would be greatly appreciated . Multiple tanks per posting acceptable as long as all are in exact format. One tank at a time is also acceptable. If you are going to report on different days - do not go back and edit a previous post - just put it in as a new one.

Entries will be accepted until JUNE 5th, but remember, report tanks FILLED IN MAY ONLY .

Posts not in format will not be tallied / corrected

Entry Format:
--------------------------------------------------------------------

FUEL TYPES:

ULSD / LSD / D2 = normal petroleum based diesel
