New Fuelup / Total Cost field

So why the need to display fractions of cents? Before I didn't need to enter a decimal point, just the amount.

$99.999

So far I've only had to pay in whole cents :-)

They stopped making the 1/2 penny in 1857 and I don't think they ever made a 1/10th penny?

Irwin,

Good question. I can't think of anything else that is commonly priced with 1/10 of a penny increments. I didn't know the answer so I turned to Google. Here is an article that explains it:
How the Practice of Pricing Fuel with 9/10th of a Penny Got Started

I'm talking about the Total Costs field, not Cost/Gal.
