This site really needs to have more model-specific info so that people can specify which exact engine and transmission people have. It also needs to let you put all your fillups in for those of us who have been tracking fuel economy for years.
Since it doesn't, it's relatively useless, but I wanted to promote my Saabs and how great their fuel economy is relative to the EPA ratings.
Sorry you don't like the site Atul, but we appreciate the feedback. You can choose your engine type when you create a car, though it's not as specific as it could be. We're trying to find a balance between ease-of-use and accuracy, but we realize our choices won't suit everyone.
mikeyb, we currently have body type (hatch vs. sedan) and engine type as options when you create a car. We're planning to show the differences in mileage between these different types, and we'll consider adding engine size as an option. The closest we get now is 4 vs 6 cylinder and fuel type. We don't have the engine displacement sizes as an option, but I can see how that would be an interesting data point to have when you're comparing mileages.
Like I mentioned, the issue here is how complicated we want to make the form for entering a car. If the form looks like an airplane cockpit, no one will bother to create a car and we won't have any data to work with. There are drawbacks to having things simple, but the advantage is more people using the system.
UH2LSAAB, it is very easy to add your fill-up history. Take a closer look at the entry options and you'll find a variety of ways to enter prior fill-up data (i.e., either one-at-a-time or with a .csv file). Take a look at my log; it contains entries from over a year before this site's launch.
hey Fuelly.com website owners, dont listen to the moron's who complain about your website's "shortcomings"! when he/she/it/they create, publish and maintain their own website that is as helpful,useful, AND PERTINENT as yours is, then they can say whatever the hell they want...till that day tho, tell them to F off and use another website! there is a DISTINCT difference between constructive criticism and just annoying complaining...that guy nailed the latter....
