Question MPG and Distance Not Calculating Properly

Hi!

My MPG and Distance are not calculating properly. I have a BMW I3 REX so the MPG on some fill ups are some crazy high numbers, but I don't understand why the system can figure them out. Any fixes for this?

Here is my car's stats: Rexlee (BMW i3) | Fuelly

Thanks,
Chris

I think there is a MPG cap as fuelly wasn't designed for range extending/plug ins, as it doesn't track the electricity used, so can be misleading to others. No doubt they are working on a programme that does support them as they become more common and popular.

I think 299 mpg is the maximum the site can cope with.

Fuelly came to be as a way for people to research the fuel economy of a model other people were actually getting.

Ignoring the electric usage of a PHEV makes such info useless.

I don't think they are ignoring PHEV. I think it is just a case of the software was written at a time when such mpg figures were unheard of, and has just not been updated. As we know, Fuelly has a tiny tech team and a huge wish list. PHEV obviously not the top priority.
It is a bit like the Y2K bug.

You misread that. I'm saying that just tracking the gasoline used, and not including the electricity, of a PHEV makes such data useless to people trying to research the model. A listed PHEV with better reported efficiency than another isn't getting better overall efficiency if it is using more electricity from the grid.

Yes, I see that now. Certainly misread the meaning of your original post.
