Since some people like the notes expanded (me & a few others in this thread), and some people like them shrunk, how about a way to flip between expanded & shrunk? (i.e. an 'expand/shrink notes' link to an alternate view or something like that).
But I prefer the handling of CR/LF characters in the new system, i.e., the old system just jammed all the text up in a big blob. So ideally the 'expanded view' would use the user's formatting like the new tooltip thing does.
The new scale on the by month bar-graph is great. The old 0-xMPG scale caused the bars to all look really similar. Good call there.
The adjustable cost analysts period is also a really welcomed change.
The info-graphics in the Basic Stats area area are a little much though. I personally don't need average/last/best MPG in such huge print. And the total fillups infographic (with the gas pump) is neat, but a real space waster. The old matrix was just as effective and more conservative with the space usage.
I look forward to being able to customize this space with new and different metrics. Although I have no specific ideas for what I want to see here.
One thing that would be cool to develop is an easy way to put together a report based on all fuelups with a given keyword or keywords. I put fuel station/brand and octane into the keyword field on each fillup and would be interested to see if that effects mileage. Although the brand/octane I fillup with effects the _next_ fillup's mileage, not this fillup. If fuelly could figure that out for me, that'd be really useful.
That said, octane really should be a separate field when entering fillup data.
Overall this site is great! I like it enough to type out these comments..
The new color scheme and layout is fresh & attractive! I'm a web developer myself and I appreciate what you've done.
One great use for this site is the views of data for different models/years of a particular vehicle. Please don't remove the mpg distribution graphs for models/years!
In fact, I was hoping you would add additional filters (like include only vehicles that have x number of fuelups or more, etc.) and I wish you would calculate & display weighted mileage for an entire group (model/year). I'd also like to see ranking within model for each individual's mpg figure.
