CSV import issues

I made a CSV to import my data and my car ('02 Jetta) has a trip odometer that shows 1 decimal point. I use the trip odo for tracking km since my last fill.

I have the trip odo data stored in the CSV with 1 decimal point, yet when I import it, your site seems to add a second random decimal point and now my recorded mileage is no longer accurate. I have no idea why this is happening or where these new numbers came from, but they are wrong and I want them to be right.

Can you fix this issue so I don't have to go through about 30 different fuel ups and manually edit the odometer reading to be accurate?

Behind the scenes here we store everything in US units. So km is converted to miles and stored. In that conversion process we lose some precision, and there's no way around that without completly changing how we store data. If you need absolute precision Fuelly probably won't work for you.

I accidentally imported 77 fuel-ups with the wrong Cost-Per-Liter. The amount imported is 0.65 where in fact the actual price I wish to enter is 0.4 dollars.

Since there are 77 fuel-ups, it will take me too long to edit each one. Is there a way where I can delete all my fuel-ups and re-import the file with the correct values? I tried importing the file earlier but it just skipped all the entries because they already exist in my profile.

Thanks a lot for the help!

Sure, the fast way is to delete the car and create a new one. You can remove a car by finding the "Edit This Car" link on your car profile page, and clicking the red "Remove Car" button. Then just create a new car with the same name and re-import with the corrected CSV.
