There were lots of PCX 125's listed previously, but now they are all gone?
They are not gone, we just have some clean up to get done before they all show up again. Please be patient as we work through the cleanup.

The 2012 Cruze engine and EPA trim options are correct.

We feel strongly that this was the right move in the long run as we are simply confirming to auto industry aftermarket standards (how the parts suppliers identify different vehicles) but it's going to take us some time to merge everything to the same standard. We tried to automate as much as we could and that got us about 70% done but the rest will be completed through a more manual process in the weeks ahead.

Thanks again for your patience through this transition, we appreciate it.
If you want users to check and correct their vehicle details you may have to prompt them with a mass email like the one you sent to warn of the site outage.
This may not work well however if they are then confronted with incomplete and confusing model data from US only sources.
For older vehicles I suspect it may be very difficult to get comprehensive data from current industry sources.
Perhaps your filters need to have the option of using the "custom" data so that the site remains useful during the long data cleanup process.

I'm at a loss to understand why standardizing model designations would require throwing out entire manufacturers, and rebuilding the list from users pointing out what you left out. Did it occur to anyone there to *finish* the new system before switching over to it? This is half-assed change-management, folks.

This. Took me over an hour to figure out what was wrong with the RAM / Dodge pickup listings. The title of this thread didn't help matters any.

There needs to be a hotlink on all users dashboards explaining what they need to do to resolve these issues.

Cool

I notice that my 2011 Volt does not come up when I search for all 2011 Volts.

https://www.fuelly.com/car/chevrolet...olt3939/110666

Also I get zero stats, while other Volts are showing all the stats.

You have zero stats on here and the old Fuelly because you are entering large quantities of mileage for fuelups. Fuelly doesn't currently handle such large numbers for EV as they are discounted as being unreliable numbers. In the future we are going to better support electrical/hybrid vehicles in terms of gas mileage and electrical usage.

Please edit your vehicle and select a submodel. Currently, you have your email address in the submodel field.

When I tried that earlier the Make was stuck on Other, no Chevrolet choice at all. The whole page was pretty much frozen, now that's working, but still not showing when searching for '11 Volts.

"Fuelly doesn't currently handle such large numbers for EV as they are discounted as being unreliable numbers. In the future we are going to better support electrical/hybrid vehicles in terms of gas mileage and electrical usage."

That's the same response from 2-3 years ago, hello, the future is here already. It's just numbers, and they are not "unreliable", they are the facts, please turn the nanny filters off already.
