I know if I were designing the system, the first corner case I would think of was people driving backwards. If (tranny == reverse) change_mileage = 0;
Why stop mileage changing when reversing? It makes no sense. Just have mileage increment normally upwards whenever the vehicle moves either forwards or backwards. The sensor just gives pulses as the vehicle wheel turns and it doesn't matter to the counter whether the pulses are received when the vehicle is going forwards or backwards.
