There hasn't seemed to be any comments about this on the thread or forum by moderators...is this a possibility or a wanted feature that may come to fruition?

I would really like to be able to add other functions to total cost of vehicle/mile, as my Insight claims $.05 per mile, but factoring in insurance, and cost, it is closer to $.70 per mile! That doesn't even have my tires, oil change, or modifications included yet...but I digress from my point.

Modification flags on the fuel chart?

Bump for a good idea! Where are you Darrin?

This.

My fuel log is getting close to being scaled down again, at which point it will likely become unreadable. Having it stay at this "size" and displaying the most recent fuel ups would be a great feature, and a "click to expand" to show the full log would be icing on the cake.

How 'bout it?

I've had similar thoughts. I'm not as far along yet as Blue Angel, but in a few more fill ups, it'll be getting there.

I've also thought about just starting a new fuel log as "white gnat 2" or something, but is this even Kosher? Of course, it would also make it more difficult to compare the "early days" to the more advanced days, as well as remove the handy reference for "lifetime mpg average", which I like to look at & watch improve.........

(I probably wouldn't mind getting rid of that horrible 24 mpg all time low back on the first tank with the original, sick engine, though....)

This is why I also keep a running fuel log on Fuelly.com, all the way back to the day I bought the Black Widow two years ago
The fuel log here isn't as user friendly or customizable as Fuelly's, which seems strange since this entire site is basically centered around the affects of mods on mpg.

That being said, I was on Fuelly for a year and a half just tracking my mileage. Then I stumbled across ecomodders, and in the six months since I have increased my average gas mileage by over 15 mpg, or about 35%

The exact same thought was crossing my mind. After one more fill I will be at 60 fills and my graph will be at its limit. You would just need to add a new vehicle to your garage and carry on from there. Your 90 day would be inacurate for 90 days and your lifetime would be off for good, but like cowmeat says you could always use Fuelly for keeping the lifetime average going.

Ecomodder attracted me with their far superior (IMO) fuel banner for adding to your signature block. I'm on Cruzetalk and everyone uses Fuelly banners which only state your lifetime average. The EM banner displays your 90-day average, which is a much more motivational target the way I see it.

Come to think of it, if EM got really serious with their graphs and signature options they could attract TONS of people away from Fuelly based on that alone!

I think there could be gain from it, but I don't think we would be taking market share unless there was a lot more added to it, and it was a more prominent portion of the site. It's kind of difficult to find for a beginner.

I think a cool tool would be buttons that showed what a modification could do. For example, check boxes when setting up (or editing) your vehicle, to show what modifications are done. Then, click on a button to see an estimate of a good modification.

Example: I have the "Upper Grille Block" checked on my build page, so on my tank page I can click "Underbody" to give me an estimate of what my MPG would be with the modification, and how much I would save over certain periods. Like how fuelly says "If you got 2 MPG better, this would happen..."

On Ecomodder, if you had a boat tail you could go 40-100 miles further on your tank/save $80 per year/whatever.

Bump for the New Year!

A new year and a new thought as to how we can make the fuel log better; we could just start a new log image below the first one that starts with fill-up #61 and ends at #120, then another that starts at #121 etc.

We would end up with exactly the same image as before, just more than one of them.

How 'bout it team?
