2.) The top of the vehicle settings page has your vehicle type, click change type.
3.) Transmission is located at the bottom of the choices. Select Automatic or Manual and then click the Update Car button at the bottom of the page.
That's it. Once you have Transmission set you'll see Auto or Manual next to your vehicle description across the site. For example, here's my Prius. If you look at the top of the page you'll see: 2006 Toyota Prius • Hybrid L4 Hatchback (Auto).
Once we have a good number of people reporting their transmission, we'll add filters to the top of the browse vehicle pages so you can limit those by transmission.
Great idea. I'm still relatively new to Fuelly, so I apologize if this has been asked before, but have you guys ever considered adding more data points for fill ups. I'm thinking of things like brand of gas, octane used, tire pressure, etc. I use the tags and notes section to do this now, but it would be nice to input these into their own box and share with others. It would something that people can enter optionally, of course. Just a thought...
Could you add other types of Transmissions to the list as Semi-auto (Automatic transmission) and Direct Shift (Manual Transmission), both of which have no clutch pedal but in the later case does have two clutches, as they are becoming more and more popular.
Perhaps it would become too complicated, but to put mine (Direct Shift) in the Auto type would skew any figures that might be collected as it is not an Automatic but to a casual observer everything looks and behaves like an auto.
Average MPG will often be quite different between two similar cars with Manual & DSG (Manual has better MPG).
