Importing Your Data Into Fuelly
You can use the fuel-up import feature to add historic fuel-up data to any of your existing Fuelly vehicles. Fuelly import accepts a simple CSV text file that includes your fuel-up data.
The first row of your CSV file must contain column names, outlined below. The data for each column should be separated by commas and match the following types:
odometer(Required for odometer trackers)
- Your odometer reading as number with up to one decimal place.
km(Required for tripometer trackers)
- The distance traveled as a number with up to one decimal place.
- The fuel volume as a number with up to three decimal places.
- The price/gallon or price/L as number less than 15 with up to three decimal places.
- The percentage of driving done in the city. The remainder will be considered highway driving. Whole numbers only, no decimals or % symbols.
- Date of Fuel-up in this format:
M/D/YY. (You can optionally include a fuel-up time by using this date/time format:
- Up to 15 keywords separated by spaces with up to 50 characters/tag. English characters only.
- Text up to 500 characters.
- A bit field (
0= no) for odometer trackers that lets Fuelly know a fuel-up reading was missed.
- A bit field (
0= no) that lets Fuelly know a fuel-up was not completely full.
Fuelly expects the CSV file to be in standard Excel CSV format (more info). This basically means that each record is located on a separate line followed by a line break. Text is qualified with quotes, and if you have a quote within your text you can escape it with two quotes (
If you have your data in Excel, be sure to add the column names Fuelly is expecting. It should look something like this:
To save your Excel file as a plain CSV text file, choose
File → Save As... from the menu, enter a new name, and select Comma Separated Values (.csv) as the format.
Here's a sample file that includes three fuel-ups using all of the fields for a car with gallons/miles and odometer tracking set.
