Metric Data Entry Added

We just took our first steps toward support for metric units on Fuelly. If you want to enter your fuel-up data in litres and kilometers, you can choose that option when you add or edit a new car.

Car profiles are still very US-centric with miles and mpg featured, but we added a new data point: Average Litres/100 Kilometers. (Here's what it looks like.) This is a standard measure of fuel efficiency outside the US, and we felt it was another important data point that should be available to everyone.

We still don't have a way to add cars from outside the US into our system, but we're working on that now and hope to have it available soon.

Metric support is brand new and there are bound to be bugs. Please post here if you spot problems.

Is this working yet? If so, how do I get to it? I'm in Canada, so it'd be (much!) easier to post in litres than it would be miles.. less conversions!

Yep, it's working. You just choose Metric as the option when you add a car. If you have an existing car you can switch it to Metric, but be aware that Fuelly is going to treat all existing fuel-ups at metric if you do that.

Here's more info about English or Metric Tracking With Fuelly.

Excellent! I noticed that the Price/L isn't calculating correctly though. I believe it's still converting the L to gallons and then applying the price.

woops, thanks omnimous. It should be working now. You might want to go in and edit your fuel-up to recalculate the total price.

I just updated - looks like the calculation is dividing instead of multiplying the conversion?

Thanks for this.

Now if only there was a way to choose "Miles since last fuel-up" and enter "Litres" and "Price/Litre" :-) At least that's an easier conversion to do after the fact.

Thanks but could we have the option to choose miles for distance and litres for volume please! (This is the standard UK way to do things.)
