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 usually just make a mental note of how many miles I drove before my next fill up.

Every fill-up, in a little notepad in the glovebox.

I've tracked my vehicle's gas mileage for a number of years now. My spreadsheet has evolved over the years and now includes cost/miles (CPM), min/max PPG, Miles/Year, Est. Cost per year, and a calculation to see how my mileage compares to EPA estimates and how much money is saved as a result. Tracking is broken out by season, year, and overall. I also use it to remind me of when service is due. Took some time but now it is all setup and gives me a great summary with little effort. Love it.

Excel spreadsheet.

I don't exactly trust on-line record keeping.

Yes, Auto Tool Box and a spreadsheet. Actually helped me identify an O2 sensor that was going bad, but didn't pop any codes. Ended up increasing my MPG by .5.

I am now a firm believer in tracking your gas mileage.

Yes, I use GB for tracking my mileage. It is also pretty easy to check, because I usually use about 10 gallons of gas before I need to fill up. Just take a quick look at my trip odometer and move the decimal and I have my mileage.
