Launch day issues and a quick FAQ

We've launched! And we have bugs! And we have to get on a plane so it'll be a day or two! Full details and Frequently Asked Questions inside.

- We've been featured on a lot of blogs today (thanks Lifehacker!) and we just crested our first thousand users, so welcome!

- Metric!: We will shortly (hopefully by the end of the day) allow you to set km as distances instead of miles and liters instead of gallons (and we'll add imperial gallons and L/100km type calculations as well).

- Motorcycles/scooters!: By early next week we should have a way to enter in your year, make, and model of two-wheeled vehicle, and we'll use submitted data to build up a database of all known bikes being ridden out there.

- My car/model/engine isn't listed: By next week we should have ways to enter in data that is outside the bounds of what we list (we started with a somewhat complete list of cars available in the US).

- Locations of fuel-ups? Highway vs. City estimates? Prices in something other than US dollars? Email/SMS input? Upload API?: Yep, we've gotten a ton of great ideas that we'd like to also add in the next week or two and these will be some of them. We have a complete running list of major features we're still working on in a previous post.

If you have any other questions or suggestions for data you'd like to see (especially in non-US countries -- how does your country typically report fuel economy?) drop them in here.

Don't forget UK: fuel sales in litres, consumption in miles per UK gallon

Wish we could post more than ONE post per WEEK to what is supposed to be a FORUM. What's up with that. It's a forum. There won't be much discourse if you restrict to one entry per week. Just a friendly suggestion. Happy launch day!

PS - The iPhone interface is a little messed up as well. The input fields are HAH-YUGE and go off the screen to the left when in portrait mode. In landscape mode the fields fit but the header is shrunken. FYI from one webdeveloper to another.

Okay. Sorry. Last one and I'm done for today. Clicking my car in the iPhone entry page gave me a 404. BTW - LOVE the 404 page. everyone should see it, just once.

I noticed a user with the same type of car as mine with wildly varying statistics (e.g. impossible >1000 miles / tank fill ups, etc.). Will there be a way to flag users who enter impossible data to keep the numbers more accurate? The statistics here could start influencing purchase decisions eventually and bad data would be a terrible thing in that case.

I noticed that when I entered a fill-up on the date of 1/1/2008 it was not counted as being part of my 2008 total $ spent. Changed to 1/2/2008 and it was. Might be a slight bug.

Thanks.

Not sure if this has been posted before or not, but can you include support for TWITTER? I'm used to twittering status updates and a simple twitter input interface say: @fuelly 104.1 3.759 7.465 would represent how many miles I travelled, the price I paid for the gas, and how many gallons were purchased (MPG).

I like the twitter plan, but would prefer a direct message (so D fuelly 10473 3.79 9.887) in the MPG format (makes the order easy to remember).
