You cannot do "anything" and take the standard mileage deduction. The standard mileage deduction is in lieu of taking the actual expenses (which includes depreciation). I think, but cannot recall precisely, that there may have been a recent change in the rules (prior to the 2001 changes) which forces the choice of standard rate vs. actual expenses. While it may be easier to track the personal usage, in the unlikely event you are audited, the IRS will insist on seeing the business use. After all, the presumption is that all usage is personal (nondeductible) unless you can prove otherwise.Ira
