This post will be published the most basic questions that often I get on mail and the answers to them. The list will be updated.

# Category: Fuel consumption

## How to take fuel bonuses into account

Many car owners use different loyalty programs from gas stations, and certainly everyone knows about the existence of such. Networks of gas stations are trying to attract regular buyers of fuel to give cumulative discounts, free liters or bonuses. There are a lot of programs, like their users. There is a logical question: How can you calculate the benefits of…

## Note the current mileage

The program has a remaining fuel prediction unit available. More information (mileage / fuel consumption / day coasting) and accurate results. And if consumption statistics or coasting gradually replenished, the actual (current) mileage the program learns from the records. The fuel records have even a single record type called “Waypoint” which contains the date and mileage (+ comment) only. And…

## Trip cost

In any statistics relating to the vehicle, the fuel consumption is always mentioned as the main indicator of its profitability. If you agree with it, it will be recognized that the trip cost – the second main component, which can characterize maintenance the car, as it is expensive.

## How to note the change of fuel at calculation of consumption for the two-fuel cars

One of the most popular proposals for improvement – allow to specify the program now goes to the car what kind of fuel.

## The algorithm for calculating the fuel consumption of two tanks

The algorithm for calculating the fuel consumption of a of one tank already described in a separate article. The algorithm for the calculation of the two tanks is not much different, but there are nuances.

## For what period considered consumption

Each repeated “final record” (full tank, volume rest or checkpoint) closed the previous period. All fuel between last and the previous finals record is summed, take into account the difference in the level in the tank and passed mileage and calculated consumption. This consumption is indicated for all records involved in the calculated period. For most users, this is understandable and familiar. But,…

## Why Does the Forecast Differ From the Real Values

Because the forecast is calculated by the average values of your odometer and average flow rate, and the real distance you drove really depends on driving style and mileage after the last refueling the fixed residue (full tank/checkpoint или remaining fuel).

## A Note About Remaining Fuel

The program has the ability to calcculate the exact residue in the tank. It is added as a normal post, just tick the ‘know the exact balance of the tank’ and enter a known volume in the separate value field. If you wish, you can specify the amount of the following refueling. Roughly speaking: ‘full tank’ – a special case of this record –…

## How to Record the Travelled Distance – Through Odometer or Counter

The most honest values – mileage, date, and distance. These shall not be tweaked or ‘adjusted’ to generate ‘nice’ reports or ‘beautiful’ numbers.

## Prediction of Remaining Fuel

The fuel gauge in the tank has become a necessity for a long time. And a trip can not be planned without the knowledge of how much fuel is left.

## How to Improve the Accuracy of the Calculation of Fuel Consumption

When calculating the fuel consumption you wish to have the most accurate results. Absolute accuracy (hello mathematics) we did not achieve, but to approach it the following tips will help.

## Record Types

Entries are different. And our algorithm knows almost ten variations. Below is the full list.

## Filling a Tank ‘Full’

The most universal definition. Understandable by beginners and experienced car owners. And even more by the program.

## Checkpoint

The easiest way is to use examples that demonstrate the different ways to use the so-called ‘checkpoints’.

## Why is The Fuel Consumption Not Shown in The App

As a minimum two records are required- full tank, checkpoint or fuel rest.

## Fuel Consumption

If you are reading this page, it is hardly necessary to tell you what it is about.

## How is The Fuel Consumption Calculated

The flow rate can be measured by an infinite number of ways. But only one is correct – when you know the exact data for the beginning and end of the measure period. The following explains it to you:
