Account Settings; Odometer or Trip Miles

Once you've set up your account one way or the other and started using it, is it possible to convert to the other method?

i.e. if I start out using trip miles to record my fuel ups and then later I want to change it to odometer reading, is fuelly able to make the conversion and change the way I capture my data?

I think I found the answer to my question. I see that I can change the setting.

Yes, you can change the setting but we've been thinking about changing that. When you change, Fuelly does its best to find a series of odometer readings vs. tripometer readings, but there are some confusing quirks here and there if you switch back and forth a lot. So we're considering making it a one-time change, or simply not allowing the change. (You can always create a new car and use import/export to move data if you need to switch methods of tracking.)

So the answer is yes right now, just be aware that lots of switching back and forth could cause problems. A one-time change should be fine, but the cleanest way to change is to start a new vehicle with the new method of tracking.

Can we set the gallons to U.K. and not U.S. gallons as it is upsetting the calculations?

Click the UK link in the upper-left corner, bluerosegroup. More info here. And be sure to check out the FAQ: I'm in the UK. Will Fuelly work for me?
