Avg Price/Gallons

Good morning, I've been using Fuelly for numerous years, and I've never bothered confirming its calculation methods. I've recently got a new vehicle and noticed my Avg Price/Gallon was 10.99$. So That number is completely wrong. It takes the average price per gallon per tank, so a tank up of half a gallon has as much influence as 20 gallons. If you can look up my profile and look at my Town and Country you'll see what I'm talking about, unless the prices don't show up to the public.
It makes me wonder how many of their other calculatoins aren't correct. It wouldn't really be any harder to make the correct calculation, so why not?

If you look up your first fuel up, you put $10.00 as a unit price, I'm seeing price per litre as that's what I set it at. I guess you put the decimal in the wrong place,try editing that or just deleting it as you didn't input any distance or fuel used anyway, just a price...

It messes up other things average distance pet tank etc of you leave distance parameters empty.

So on 9/9/22 you paid 37.854 and on 9/22/22 you paid $6.28 while your other 3 fills were all $3.xx. So the information you provided to fuelly worked out to $10.99 from your first and last fills. I'm leery of fill 5 and absolutely don't believe fill 1.

I learned it as GIGO, but that was back in grade school.

Garbage is an Americanism and virtually no one in the UK would use that. What you call Garbage we call Rubbish. Every night I put the rubbish out.
