This Car Fleet Management spreadsheet is the spreadsheet you might need if you are managing more than one car in your company and need to do organizing, tracking and reporting in a single excel spreadsheet. This spreadsheet will allow you to organizing your car daily trips and regular car services, tracking its trip, mileage, and fuel and creating reports based on those trips, including mileage trip report for tax deduction. But, this is not a sophisticated spreadsheet that could cover all of your needs, especially recording all of your car technical information (like position monitoring, car on/off time, etc). It is aimed to help you to manage your fleet in a more general purposes. It is designed specifically for cars, but you can apply it with other fleet types, like motorcycles or boats.
Features that you will get in this spreadsheet are :
Car Trip Management Feature
You can monitor and assign cars as well as their drivers based on their availability. There is a daily monitor worksheet that could give you information about its availability quickly. Each car will have its own worksheet which could ease you see the history of specific car in one page. All information in this worksheet will be processed to give you a summary of your car usage. Summary that you will have are Mileage, Fuel Efficiency, Taken Services and Expenses. You can generate reports based on this summary and use it to evaluate your car or car usage or even your driver performance.
Mileage Log Feature
Specific mileage log category is needed for tax deduction purposes. It is a big upgrade of Mileage Log spreadsheet that you might have used. You can easily define it by categorizing your trip into business category. You will get specific car mileage summary in Mileage Report worksheet that you can customize as your official business mileage report for tax deduction. I can unprotect this report worksheet so you can start customizing it. But, if you need more flexibility on this spreadsheet customization, you might purchase the Pro version.
Fuel Calculation Feature
How fuel efficiency is calculated in this spreadsheet? Fuel efficiency is defined as fuel consumption mileage per gallon. It is calculated by subtracting the last refueling mileage with the previous refueling mileage and divide by the previous volume.
For example :
Your last refueling mileage is at 20th January 2016, 10 gallons, at 10.000 read in Odometer while previous refueling is at 13th January 2016, 11 gallons, at 9.700 read in Odometer. Your fuel efficiency will be 10.000-9.700/10, it is equal to 30 Miles/Gallon. Remember that it is assumed that you refueling your car while your car tank is very close to empty. The number should be vary if it rely on one refueling in one period only. That’s why fuel efficiency will be calculated by averaging those calculated numbers. It could cover from 1 – 100 refueling times. You will see its results in monthly and yearly report, but there will be no refueling chart based on refueling times. You can create one using the Pro version if you want to have one.
