It should take in miles driven and the fuel efficiency of the trip and return how many gallons of gas has been used from the trip. It will then prompt the user if they want to add another trip and reset the odometer. Please help, I'm having a hard time bugging this. Just need another set of eyes to look at it.

trip.input();
trip.set_mile(new_miles,new_fuel);

The first one reads input and assigns the class member vars.

The second just trashes the data with the uninitialised values in main. Just delete this line.
