Can we add a feat to insert initial ODO readings of new car inserted on fuelly
When creating a new car in fuelly (new or second hand), after the first fuel up of a second hand car, the MPG readings are too off (could help in a situation where eg: the first fuel up has gotten you 92.020 miles; when the car has 92k miles on it at purchase)!
I'm not sure I understand the problem. We don't do anything with the miles and gallons figures in the first fuel-up with odometer tracking for exactly that reason. Your first fuel-up is your first odometer reading in our system.
The nice part of doing it that way is that you know for a fact it's a full tank and it was filled up the way you normally do it. From that point on the stats should be accurate.
If we had a separate field for initial odometer it could make stats further off. Because Fuelly's calculations are based on the difference from full, we'd have to assume that initial odometer is also at a full tank. I don't think that's a safe assumption. And if we can't make that assumption, we wouldn't be able to use the initial odometer reading in any way.
You could always add your initial odometer reading as a note after your set up a new vehicle. That way it'd be noted in your records at least.
