Enter Total Fill-up cost

Can you add the facility to enter the total cost of a fill up instead of the price per litre or gallon?

Like many on here I record my odometer reading on the receipt when I buy fuel. Unfortunately the oil company I normally use (Shell) does not record the price per litre on the receipt. So I have to use a calculator each time I enter the data on fuelly.

Everyone is very aware of the total they paid, but not always the price per litre or gallon. Surely this would be easy to implement, either as a user profile option, or as an either/or on the entry form?

As far as we know this is only a problem in the UK. I'm not sure why companies there don't put the price/litre on the receipt while they do in every other part of the world. Shell in the US always lists price/gallon on receipts.

Our mantra has always been: don't complicate the fuel-up form. But I think we will need to add total cost to work around this problem.

If you ask for a V.A.T.* receipt it normally does include the price / litre, but the normal receipt doesn't.

If I forget to make a note of it at the time I refuel, I have to work it out from the total cost & litres.

I think total cost should be added as a profile option like the option to chose odometer or trip meter.

MMUK, I'm not sure if you are right or not, but I do know I don't want to collect any more bits of paper!

pb, thanks for that, at least there is hope.

Use your phone to take a snapshot of the pump when you are done. Even less paper that way. lol
