I use the fuelly app on my phone and it posts to my facebook (which I like) but now its posting hashtags as well (which i don't like or approve of) is there any way to shut off the hashtag crap and still have the fuel up post to facebook?

How long does it take to get a car make approved? Sent a request a while ago for "Iveco" to be added to the list.

This site does not make much sense when it says to enter in the odometer reading each time you fill up.. If you enter in the odo reading with each fill up it calculates the mpg from those miles with the current amount of gas you got. That's pointless since you haven't driven anywhere on the gas you just got.. and yes tried using the "partial fill-up" and that didn't correct it. You shouldn't have to wait until you fill up again to input the miles you actually drove on each tank. It should be calculated back, don't get why a site like this wouldn't do that for you

My "Your Garage" is grayed out, how do I activate it? I'd like to use Fuelly badge on other sites. Thanks!

I mostly update my Fuelly through the UK SMS feature of the site. Until fairly recently I used to get a message back from Fuelly with some basic stats but also a link to view my fuelly.
This has now stopped, so I send in my information, the stats get updated on the site, but I get no feedback that it has updated. Is anyone else suffering this? Is there a way I can resolve it?

Fuelly seems to have problem with odo tracking. Although the FAQ said that the first fuel up is not counted when using odo, it apparently is for average mileage. Right now, I have a lower average mileage than my best mileage, which is not mathematically possible. Changing the amount of gas in the first fuel up changes the average mileage, which shouldn't happen.

PROBLEM: my phone mangled my last data entry, so now fuelly shows me getting 4.1 mpg and I have found NO way to correct the bad data that led up to that. Any insights from anyone?
SOLUTION: Mine, at least, is just close my account. Anybody know a better way to fix it?

I would like to see a palace to set a percentage deviation for cars running altered tire sizes. I have one that's equipped with 12.1% taller tires, and this would make the calculation much simpler. Is anyone else running different size tires than normal and in need of such a feature? Is this something that might be added later?

I disagree with how Fuelly displays its MPG; this is really only an issue in the context of a feature I'd love to see on the site: categorizing fuel-ups by gas station [more inside]

It is reasonable to use average MGP (mean value) for one car. However, median value makes more statistic sense when calculating MPG for a group of cars. I saw people entered unrealistic MPG for their car. It may significantly pull the average MPG up for their car model. By using median, the unrealist MPG is just one sample point. If all other samples are real, it won't impact the overall result much.

I'm having trouble adding fuel-ups on my motorcycle. Whenever I enter the values below, I get this error: "Looks like the price you entered for a litre of gas is unrealistic. Please enter a value less than $15.032".
Kilometers since last fuel-up: 167.6
Unfortunately in Canada, that price for fuel isn't uncommon. Whenever I refill my TDI it accepts these higher values.
How do I resolve?

Is there a way to weed-out the bad entries? I see people are too ignorant or careless and you end with erroneous numbers that alter that averages and ranges?

Is it possible to filter the cars in the database by location? I want to find all other cars registered here that are in my country, Iceland :D

I was interested in checking out the average mpg of a VW Golf. I was surprised to see it so much higher than the U.S. EPA estimate. Then I realized that much of the data is coming from non-U.S. sources and that it may be reported as Imperial Gallons. Are the U.S. Gallons and Imperial Gallons mixed together when reporting? Or is there a filter to show the results in one vs. the other. If they are mixed, then I don't know how I could use the information I am getting.

Please, Please, PLEASE - fix your iOS app so that it doesn't crash every time I try to look up the stats in my 'Garage'!!! UGH! I really want to fully use the app but it's so very frustrating.

I'd love to be able to pull my posts into a Google spreadsheet directly or via ifttt.com ... any API plans?

Great site. How about an entry for cost of services, oil, new tires, etc., so you see the true OPEX of owning the car.

I have entered 7 fuelups for my tdi diesel. I displayed total gallons used and calculated the mpg. 2553/81.02=31.5. I am using odometer so I subtracted the first fuelup 15.56=65.46. 2553/65.46=39.000. I still see an avg mpg of 55. How do you calculate the mpg? I know it will get better with more fuelups but I would like to know how you calculate it.

Thanks for a great web site! Contact Us link is broken. Asks for captcha, but there is none. Server time is wrong. Authorize Twitter link is broken (Java bean field access exception). [more inside]

I find it very useful to be able to add fuel price to 3 decimal places allowing me to add a price per gallon of £1.429. But it is very strange that the calculated amount also has 3 decimal places (£76.452) since I am unable to pay with that much accuracy. I am not aware of any currencies that allow payment to 3 decimal places. And for some currencies only 0 should be allowed (there are no cents in a Yen for example).

Please add time of day on Add Fuel Up screen, instead of defaulting all fuel ups to 12AM.

I was looking at the 'Recent Activity' on the side of the page, and went to "TruckerPaul's" page to look at his semi-truck. Then I wanted to see if there were any more like it, but his vehicle type does not show up when looking at the 'Browse Vehicles' page. [more inside]
