New Feature: Gaslog
 
The Gaslog is now enabled.

To use this feature simply go to the following URL or click on the "gaslog" text at the top of this screen:

Http://www.gassavers.org/gaslog/

While it is not 100% complete, it has basic functionality so that I can begin working on another project for this website.

If you have any suggested features for the gaslog please send me a private message or reply to this thread with your suggestions.

Me: Total average fuel
 
Me: Total average fuel economy?
Utah: for each person, right?
Me: Yeah.
Utah: reply to that thread and suggest it
Utah: so I don't forget
Me: And for the top thing, but I think it'd be neat if it was top ten tanks and top ten averages.

Thanks for getting this
 
Thanks for getting this going Matt! I have some suggestions though. Because I crave data, and good experiment documentation shows the conditions under which the experiment took place would it be possible to add more space for conditions. Maybe a header that suggests year, make, model, engine, trans, ambient temp, modifications to vehicle, specific element tested during the run if any, blah, blah, blah.

Forgive me if I'm asking too much. I have no idea of the level of effort needed to make this kind of change to this site. I'm kind of computer literate, but I especially have no clue what goes on behind the scenes in boards like these.

I'm sure he'll get it going soon, he's a clever dude, he's just adding as he goes, but I think this is a good thread for a "gaslog wishlist," which is why he told me to post my stuff there.

I'm actually going to do this in a seperate spot. I'm going to create an experiment section. There will be a main article explaining the experiment, and then people can enter their data for that specific experiment. Fields for that will be air temp, etc. etc.

The gaslog is a general way of keeping track of your fuel economy. It is meant to please everyone by giving everyone (even just regular people) a place to track your MPG.

I'd like a link it
 
I'd like a link it everyone's profile so you can see their gaslog, ^_^

I had a though time figuring out how to ad them on because the buttons are in a box to the side (a place were ADs normally are on other web sites).

It's cool. I will put up everything i have im my log.

Good find, I was wondering about that, but didn't wanna try it. You'll get up there with some work, haha.

weird.

I thought I fixed that bug. I'll get on it right now.

I had to disable the gaslog for a while as it exposed a rather big bug. Look for it back later tonight.

Fixed, and I moved the control buttons so they're on the top.

I found a few more bugs as well, but the critical one was fixed.

Does look good, I suggest that you allow people to create two different logs (or more) for different cars. No need to explain why I don't think. :-)

THis is actually on the "to do" list. I'm wanting to make it work in conjunction with a "car profile" module I'm hoping to create.

GasLog average calculation
 
Hey it looks like the mpg displayed next to the car in the avatar window is the average of the mpg calculations where the average is the sum of the mpg divided by the number of entries. This is not accurate because a high mpg reading with 1 gallon of gas offsets the low reading with 10 gallons of gas with the same weight. You need to add all the miles driven and divide by the total of the gas used to calculate the mpg.

Good catch. I'll fix that right now.
