IMHO it seems as if the Running mpg, which I understand to be based on the last 10 fill-ups, would be a better mpg to display than what is currently used. IIRC the current calculation is based upon the overall life from day 1, correct? That seems good & all but really doesn't show what our cars really get. Mine has gone up & up since day 1 & I really think it would be better to display the more current mpg. Without it? It can't show how our personal efforts have benefited because of the older poor mpgs. My current display of 15.5 is poor compared to my actual vehicles results of 17.74 based upon the vehicles readings.
So my question is this....Can we please have our Forum badge to use the more current mpg result vs the complete overall life of the vehicle calculation?
This is a good idea and we are planning to offer new badges and more options in the future. Right now we are simply focused on a rebuild of the backend system and will focus on ideas like this once we are settled on the new system.
Thanks again for the feedback, I agree, we need more options with the badges.
To tag onto this, when browsing vehicles it would be more correct to have a weighted average when looking at the different years of a particular model (research for purchasing different vehicles). Those with fewer fuel ups are less likely to be a good indicator of long term mileage and can really skew the model year or model average with just a single erroneous fuel up.
