Fuelly tracking electrical charges

I log in all my charges to my e-hybrid car by using Charge Point. I am looking for a mileage app the includes my gas and electric charges - Fuelly isn't doing that.

Anyone have a better app for Hybrid Electric cars?

With the vast ever increasing market of electric, hybrid and plug in cars available now, I'm sure fuelly is adapting with the times and working on just such a model. Work in progress for now

Sure.

Why is this taking so long? I asked about this in September 2014 - there was plenty of chatter about it even then. Why don't they put in a way to log in and post the electrical charges? This is a choice that Fuelly is making about what to support.

I get a great spreadsheet from ChargePoint and have all my charges there. Fuelly can't find a way for me to manually input that data? Meanwhile, I have a spreadsheet and combine my fuels in Excel. Silly app.

I understand your frustration, but the best thing to do is to do as you are doing and keep your own records, then once fuelly has been updated and is ready for the kind of data you want to track, just import it. I'm sure a team member will be able to give you a better answer, sorry I can't help further.

Fuelly needs to update

I would rather support a different app who had the foresight to include electrical. Why wait for them to discover that there are many electrical cars?
I don't have the patience for their choices.

It's pretty simple in theory to just add a feature/function.
Backend work to support that feature/function is a little more intensive.

We are focusing our efforts at the moment on our mobile app integration and then we can tackle the growing list of new features we want to implement.

This thread is so old I had to check a box to say that I'm still interested in commenting. I just bought an electric car in July 2016 and Fuelly still doesn't have a fuel choice for kilowatt-hours. My car tracks everything in miles/kWh already. I'm already using Fuelly to track my fuel-ups by just inputting kWh into the "gallons" field, and the result is fuelly's MPG field telling me mi/kWh instead.

I'm a software engineer by trade and so I do understand that rolling out new features is more difficult than it appears on the surface, but I'm a bit surprised that 5 years or so after the entries in the FAQ about fuel needing to be liquid pumped into a tank, there's no option to change the fuel units from liters or gallons to kilowatt-hours.

With our small team, we're still focusing all our efforts on our mobile apps.
Then we can work to support various fuel types and tracking types (electricity, g/hr, bi-fuel, etc).

I understand, just saying that the following changes would be enough to make me happy:
- add "kilowatt-hours" as a fuel unit
- if kWh is selected, then display "mi/kWh" instead of "MPG"

That's it.

It should be relatively easy to integrate Fuelly with OpenEVSE chargers. They are capable of reporting the charging statistics.
