MPG/Missed Fillup Issue for my Chevy Volt

I have been using this app for a while now but just had an issue yesterday when I filled up. I went 1,230 miles on 9.1 gallons which is about 135 MPG but is now says Missed Fuelup but I did not miss one. I work closer to home now and don't use nearly as much gas as before. Is there a cap on MPG that this app will work for? How do I get it to work? I have used this app for every fuelup since I got ithe car and really want to keep using it. Please help.

I'm having a problem with my Volt, too. I went 7988 miles on my first fill up and Fuelly is ignoring that tank. The car got 937 mpg, so maybe Fuelly is thrown for a loop when the computed mileage exceeds some preset maximum value...

I would think that considering just the MPGs of gasoline used by hybrids is misleading at best. What about the additional energy, i.e. the electricity used? Shouldn't that be counted too to get a realistic comparison.

It seems to me that a separate category is needed that totals the gallons of gasoline used and the units of electricity used (in KWHs?) to get a more realistic idea of comparing "fuel" units per car.

Comparing regular cars with hybrids is like comparing straight motorcycles with mopeds that are powered partially by their riders' peddling. What's the point, unless the extra calories consumed by the peddlers are considered too.

I agree with what you said, but there is a distinction between a hybrid and a plug in hybrid(PHEV). The PHEV, like the Volt, is the one that gets energy from the electrical grid in addition to gasoline. A hybrid on the other hand gets all its energy from gasoline, like any other ICE car, and Fuelly tracks its consumption just fine.

I am disappointed that I am unable to register my 3100 miles on 6 gallons of gas as well. I'm in favor of Fuelly removing this automatic blocking of "unreasonable" mpg figures and let the user manage their own data.

As per an e-mail reply I received, as of this week, the staff is beginning to work on a solution for these types of ultra-high mpg and PHEV situations.
