We understand a lot of motorcycles and cars turned to "custom" after the backend conversion. Thanks again for reporting your models and please keep the reports coming. That being said, we will get all the customs sorted out in the weeks ahead. As Josh mentioned in the original post to this thread, we switched the taxonomy system being used and it's going to take us some time to get this all sorted. We feel strongly that this was the right move in the long run as we are simply confirming to auto industry aftermarket standards (how the parts suppliers identify different vehicles) but it's going to take us some time to merge everything to the same standard. We tried to automate as much as we could and that got us about 70% done but the rest will be completed through a more manual process in the weeks ahead.
Thanks again for your patience through this transition, we appreciate it.
If you want users to check and correct their vehicle details you may have to prompt them with a mass email like the one you sent to warn of the site outage.
This may not work well however if they are then confronted with incomplete and confusing model data from US only sources.
For older vehicles I suspect it may be very difficult to get comprehensive data from current industry sources.
Perhaps your filters need to have the option of using the "custom" data so that the site remains useful during the long data cleanup process.
I'm at a loss to understand why standardizing model designations would require throwing out entire manufacturers, and rebuilding the list from users pointing out what you left out. Did it occur to anyone there to *finish* the new system before switching over to it? This is half-assed change-management, folks.
You have zero stats on here and the old Fuelly because you are entering large quantities of mileage for fuelups. Fuelly doesn't currently handle such large numbers for EV as they are discounted as being unreliable numbers. In the future we are going to better support electrical/hybrid vehicles in terms of gas mileage and electrical usage.
When I tried that earlier the Make was stuck on Other, no Chevrolet choice at all. The whole page was pretty much frozen, now that's working, but still not showing when searching for '11 Volts.

That's the same response from 2-3 years ago, hello, the future is here already. It's just numbers, and they are not "unreliable", they are the facts, please turn the nanny filters off already.
