Preferences while travelling

I'm in Canada and have the settings as km and litres for fuel.
I travel to the USA fairly often and while using GasCubby, I had to convert the US purchases (gal) to litres before entering.
In the new app, if I enter gallons, will it convert it to litres on the fly?
If I have Location Services turned on and it knows I'm in the USA, will it ask for the fuel in gallons?

No, the app will not do any conversions based on your travels.

This is a great way to log fuel ups....but yes, that would be handy.

I travel both Canada and USA a lot, and find the hassel of converting formats a pain, plus there's always a chance of conversion error. Especially on the fly.

Having a tab that provides the user with the option of adding each fuel up in either liters or gallons...and price per liter or price per gallon.....would sure make things simpler!

It'd be wonderfully user friendly to simply just be able to select... for each individual fuel up..... whether it's a USA purchase or a Canadian purchase, and then have the entry format change accordingly with Fuelly converting everything over to the users preference settings, automatically upon saving the data. Saving the user from having to adapt pump data, by hand, before entering it.

Also, my truck's odometer is in kms, not miles.....so that would be another handy addition, a choice in what the odometer readout is.....kms or miles. I can't use the odometer reading selection because it reads in miles. So I have to select the option of using how many kms per trip.

Just some thoughts. I SURE hope the tech folks read these...Fuelly rocks otherwise! Great job, folks!

I'm adding my voice to this feature request. This would be a very welcome addition for those who travel between the two countries on a regular basis (even only on occasion!).

The distance units (odometer) should be tied to the definition of the vehicle and should never change. Whereas I agree the fuel units quantity and price-per-unit should be changeable.
