Possible to change the initial odometer entry?

Howdy.. Former GasCubby user here.. Somehow something is messed up with my logs.. It may be I screwed up initially but basically I just want to know how to fix..

My first log for my current vehicle has me getting 20mpg which I've never come close to.. I want to adjust the initial miles of the vehicle so that is more accurate..

Is it possible to do this?

Thanks

Which vehicle? I want to look at the logs to see if I better understand what you're wanting to do.

Thank you for the reply.. The Nissan Titan..

The 5/19/16 entry, which was my first ever entry, has an odometer reading 24,565.. The "last odometer" (which is grayed out) is 24,104.. That's causing a reading of like 20MPG..

I need to change the "last odometer" to like 24,250 (the 24,565 minus 315 which is around the average it should be)..

Does that make any sense?

Are you using odometer or trip odometer to log miles between fill-ups? I use odometer and I created a bogus 1st entry for which I entered the initial odometer when I took delivery on the car. It wouldn't let me enter 0 for fuel so I put 0.001 gallons and a price of 0.000/gallon. I actually did this *after* adding my first fill to allow fuelly to calculate the MPG for it.

I see... so that's a weird case.
Let me think this through and get back to you later today.

Can you send me your backup URL for review? You can send it to me via a Fuelly Mail message.

Figured it out first thing this morning!
If you look at you'll log it should be pretty easy to see (now, after some coffee, lol)-
Titan Fuel-up Log | Fuelly

Your first Odometer-
May 9 2016
24,565
Last month's-
Aug 23 2016
24,104
Aug 17 2016
27,733

I'm assuming Aug 23 was a typo, which is what's throwing things off. Correct that one and everything else should fall in line.
