Now that fuelly has been around for a while and there are alot f regular users tracking all their mileage for their cars for the last frw years is is it possible under each vehicle profile to have a tab yoj can click on with past years under it (2009/2010 and next year 2011 added) so that you can see you mileage, averge MPG and price per mile cost and total spent for those past years respectivly? Would help people to see what their past average MPG or running costs were which would be handy for reference.
Yeah, we should do something like this. If we just show mileage, avg MPG, and price/mile we probably could show it on the same page somewhere. But it might make sense to do it on a separate page so there's plenty of space to work with.
ok, we're ready to test the new annual stats page. Go to your vehicle profile and add this to the URL: /annual. That will take you to a page that shows some stats for each year you've been reporting at Fuelly. Here are the annual reports for my RAV4 if you want to see an example.
I just finished coding this up and there are bound to be bugs so keep that in mind as you try it out. And please report any bugs here.
Once we've put this page through its paces a bit I'll link to it from all vehicle profile pages.
yeah, I thought my first couple years looked low compared to my overall average too. To double check take the total distance tracked in the year divided by the total fuel volume. It should equal the MPG.
And to make sure those numbers are right you could always do an export and calculate the distance and fuel volume for a year with Excel. It all checks out for me, but there definitely could be bugs lurking in there.
Man PB has been busy huh. This is awesome! Exactly what fuelly needed, more stats reporting! Makes it all the more useful when you have something more than average MPG to compare it to. Plus it helps you compare trends in gas prices. Amazing how much the cost per mile changed from 2008 to 2009 to 2010.
For the record I did find a bug with odometer users and missed fuel-ups. The annual reports were counting the volume fueled on missed fuel-ups even though there's no way to calculate the preceding mileage. Once I dropped those out the numbers made more sense.
We were already doing this everywhere else on the site, just missed that detail when I put these new reports together.
Whatever you did, fixed it. I have yet to have any missed or partials, so that wasn't an issue, but I think it dropped the first fill-up, which resulted in 0 mpg as it was odometer and probably threw the stat off..
