I guess they REALLY don't want to hear that my little rolling flashlight is now reading 177.6 mpg. I understand incorporating kw would provide a more complete picture, though a fairly difficult task given the fact that we charge a couple free stations throughout the week during our travels in addition to the home charger. The fact remains that we have been able to cheerfully reduce our fuel usage - covering normal amount of ground (for us) on minimal gas. Thank you for the response.

Exactly, it's a meaningless number. If fuelly knew the KW, it could calculate the MPGe for you, but without that, it can't.

The numbers may be meaningless, but we like them - end result is still little fuel, lots o' miles. Now, if they would only convert the vehicle to DC and keep it perpetually charged via solar or little bitty wind turbines to re-capture/re-gen @ 60mph...

No matter how giddy they might make you, publishing half of the truth is meaningless and more importantly deceptive.

Until you publish the rest of your cost per mile, that data is not just incomplete but false and misleading, and that is why the developers have not warmed up to plug ins yet.

I do understand the concept of cost per mile...just enjoying the air choking, noise making, gas element of said cost being minimal. Sorry the developers can't find their warm & fuzzies. Didn't mean for everyone to get their britches in a bunch.

> MMUK - noticed you drive a diesel...agreed that those are still the way to go for longer range driving. This Ford just fits well with our daily running about; probably wouldn't benefit from its attributes as much if I still had frequent commutes to Austin, at least not until public charge stations become more prevalent.

>yet.

I think it's mostly because they haven't found a easy & consistent way to record the KW yet (some people have indicators in the car, some people measure it at the socket, etc, and it doesn't really tie in very well with the refuellings either ... unless you did both at the same time they'd have to be recorded as partials).

Paul has mentioned previously that they are investigating to see if they can find a way to do it, but I suspect there are too many problems in the way.

Understood, and, again, just pleased to minimize gas consumption, regardless of the cost & assist provided by KW, the $9 car-wash that reduced drag by knocking off a layer of dirt,the Force, pixie dust, what have you. I can envision at some point charge data for each vehicle being fairly easily tracked; the (public) charge stations notify me via text when my car is done charging, so I wouldn't think we're too far off from that data being compiled/streamed to sites like Fuelly.
