Heh heh, I don't know what my cost savings has been since my transportation situation seems to change by the month, but by Lugnut's logic, I've been saving a little more than 9 gallons in the Tercel since December. Thinkin' I need to go waste it off-road somewhere now . .

Since I started using this site (I've been driving close to this way for a while - but the ScanGauge 2 and the fuel log have made me be much more effective at it)

346 miles

EPA Combined - 27 MPG = EPA 12.81 Gallons @$3.68 average fuel cost = $47.14 total fuel via EPA Combined

My combined mileage - 35.83 MPG = 9.77 Gallons @ $3.68 average fuel cost = $35.98 total fuel in reality.

$10 less for 7 days of driving? Can't complain about that.

Is there a way to get the garage on here to cough up total miles, average fuel cost, etc? The last time I wanted to figure that I had to do a lot of manual math which was insanely slow.

I do know that as of about 8months of ownership(I'm at 11 now) I'd saved about $475 in gas driving Box vs my old Subaru Outback.

Got Microsoft Excel? If so, do this:
1. Open your gaslog in Internet Explorer.
2. Select the data (try to get the headings in your selection but not the graph image).
3. Copy to clipboard.
4. Paste into Excel.
5. Delete any extra stuff you didn't want, like the graph image that you couldn't help but select.
6. Crunch the numbers.

You know all that overcooked bullcrap Microsoft does? It occasionally pays off...

I just tried it with IE7 and Excel 2007, works great. Total miles: 12085.06. Total fuel used: 371.788. Average cost per gallon: 3.477051.

Since my 04/03/2008 entry I began much better maintenance so I averaged it out from that date and currently I've saved $129.56.

My average mpg since 04/03/2008 is 31.395.

By going above EPA mileage, I have saved 34.828 gallons of fuel. (or basically 3 fillups!!)

(if we go back to my original average though, which was 27 mpg before visiting this site, I have saved 22 gallons of fuel and $81.)

Also worth mentioning is that on this current tank of fuel, I've gone 20 days w/o needing to refill. This is a bit odd, but previously I would fill every 8-10 days, I bet I now average roughly 15 days between fillups.

...and if your data is all in your gaslog here but you want to import it into Fuelly as a CSV, the procedure is pretty similar to what I wrote above about using Excel.

I'm not sure if I have Excel on this computer or not. If Dell didn't put Excel on it then I don't have it. I probably should have it though. I use Excel @ work, but I never had to open any of those files on my laptop.

So, you're trying to force me to come up with a REAL solution, instead of taking the easy way out, eh? Microsoft integration be damned, we want a good way to do it...

Er, nevermind. I started to work on doing it using Notepad++ but then I found that using OpenOffice (with Opera, Firefox, or IE), you get even BETTER results than Excel. If you don't have OpenOffice, just download it, it's free (and open-source).

Don't want to go to the effort of downloading and installing OpenOffice? Use Google Spreadsheets online: http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?new
You'll need to use Firefox or Opera to copy your gaslog to the clipboard, though; if you use IE then Google Spreadsheets doesn't make columns out of it.
