Data/Chart Discrepancy

I’m really enjoying the site. There’s loads of valuable information here. My last and best fill-up is correctly shown as 5.5 litres per 100 km on Fuelly; however, the chart presenting my fuel consumption shows my last fill-up as 5.6 litres per 100 km. Why the discrepancy? (If I choose to display in US or UK units, then the chart agrees with the data displayed. The problem arises only when I view in my preferred mode: metric units.) Thanks for the great site.

hmm, sounds like a rounding error in the metric view. I'll look into it, thanks for the heads up.

The charts and table used slightly different rounding algorithms, so I switched things around to use a single method of rounding for L/100km calculations from now on. So the numbers should be consistent going forward.

Thanks for looking into this so quickly. The discrepancy was small, but it's nice now to have the chart and table showing the same outcome.
