Do you record your gas mileage so you can see if it changes over time?

It can be any method, paper, spreadsheet, online, or any other method.

I started with a small hard cover notebook and moved to Excel and then online. Excel is nice because I created a bunch of graphs.

I do it the old-fashioned way: college-ruled steno pad and Pilot G2 pen. Fill-ups, oil changes, air filter changes, etc.

Yes, for close to 40 years now. I started with seed corn notebooks(ask an old farmer about them) and I've progressed to college-ruled notebooks.

first jot it down on the receipt, adding current and trip odometers readings... furious if I don't get a receipt and have to write it all down, including the gallonage, price and cost...
then transfer to a file in my Word, now use Gasbuddy's log as well, just 'cause it's there...

The entire gas usage of my 2010 Prius is available for review online at fuelly dot com as Hyperdrive One and at cleanmpg dot com as Hyperdrive 1. I also have it recorded on a log book too.

My fuel efficiency is a bit higher than normal because - I have been using the Prius to learn how to hypermile. The fuel efficiency of a Prius is normally higher in the summer time and lower in the winter time... The fuel efficiency is normally better for slow (35 mph) commuting and poorer for high speed (+65 mph) long distance trips.
