Force EnergyPlus Output Meter to Include Year?

The standard outputs I've seen only have month and day in the date, but for longer, multi-year runs (particularly for M&V) it's nice to have a full date/time stamp that includes the year (which the simulation clearly knows because it gave me errors until the years matched in the EPW and the RunPeriod:CustomRange object. Is there a way to force this through to the outputs?
