Errant data
Is there any way to mark errant data from fillup entries that are likely to be in error? There's one entry in the category below that apparently had one fillup of over 10 thousand gallons in a single fillup, and it skewed the average MPG not only for that fillup but for the entire model. Likely it was supposed to be 10 gallons rather than 10,000 unless it's a supertanker custom.
Maybe worthwhile having some kind of boundary checking when entering data to make sure a decimal place wasn't inadvertently misplaced.


May be good to have an option to exclude the extremes to achieve better accuracy on the overall model MPG calculations.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We'll look into it to help clean up the data.
For future reference, I've seen some Fuelly Drivers actually send the member a message using Fuelly Mail. If you want to do that, that's completely your choice.
You can also send a link to the Help Desk and I'll look into it privately.
Another option is to click on the "Report this Page" link at the page footer to send a message as well.

We allow data like that to appear in the driver's profile but we do exclude the data when calculating the figures for the model.
