Question Best Fuel Mileage Recording App for iPhone?

I did a search and had mixed results. I was using Fuel Log on my HTC Thunderbolt, but I have an iPhone now. Just curious what everyone prefers in terms of iPhone fuel mileage recording apps. I would use a pen and pad of paper but I prefer digital tech.

Thanks.

on my i phone i use a few different apps for hypermiling...

i have a scanguage by the way, i use a very simple "milage calculator" just to give me on the go readings it can switch from MPG to LPHkm which is nice

i also use "Height finder" to see the differences in elevation , i live in the mountains so this is handy when i plan routes and i will know what to expect

i also use "convert units" so i can precicisely calculate volume of tank the difference between a gallon and a litre , also the diff in temps ferenheit and celcius

"weather lite" this app will give you a barometer to tell you the direction of the wind and speed very handy on long trips.

theres just a few but as far as plugging your i phone into your car via OBD2 i wouldent do it , your i phone does so much that you will b distracted if you have a instant readout on your i phone, plus you will eat your battery and you dont always have your phone with you..

I use an app called "TripLog". Not only do I record all of my trips into it (for work) I also record EVERY time I fill up at the station. I'd be lost without it!

Not sure about the Iphone, but I've been using this bluetooth odb reader and the Torque app on my android phone (but my car already does show mpg, so I primarily used it to watch intake/boost pressure):

Thumbs up

You can try Vezma as well, They are by far the best mileage/expense tracker i have used and they also have a pretty accurate location sharing feature. They are available on google play, ios as well as blackberry store, you can search em through google and check em out.

I've been using "Gas Tracker", which I think is an iPhone front-end for Fuelly. Works pretty well, and having the data available from everywhere on-line is a nice bonus.
