Wrong Fill Up Entry

Are there any plans to add auto correct for obvious fill up entry errors? Under 2013 Accord V6 sedan, on Sept 29 2104 a user input a fill up of 1334 gallons. It probably should have been 13.34 gallons. This has thrown off the average MPG for the entire category. Can this entry be corrected?

There is a warning that pops up that the data seems out of the expected results, and the user has the option to edit, or post anyway. Looks like the user just clicked post the result as is. The best thing to do is just use the report page function. I'll go ahead and try to find it and fix the entry though.

Thanks for your help. It looks like the numbers are back to normal.

Yeah, while I was looking at the 2013 Accords, I also removed the 72 MPG V6 Accord from the pool of data. I can't see how anyone could be that good at hypermiling a V6 accord to consistently hit those numbers.

We are working on a complex system that will look for outliers like this and exclude them from influencing the overall avgs.

Please add a function such that users can flag these typos, or obvious wrong engine size or description about the cars.

For example, there are lots of 2014 MINI Cooper S Hardtop owners thinking their car is a 3 cylinder (1.5L) when in fact it is a 4 cylinder (2.0L).
