I just put my miles into my regular weekly calendar. Any kind of reasonably organized record of your mileage would be acceptable to the IRS. You don't need to keep gas receipts and such, especially since each tank of gas for most people will be used up by both personal and business/charitable miles. But if you were going on a long, deductible trip, I'm sure gas receipts would be helpful.
