lost my paper gaslog

I haven't had to fill my metro since oct 10th. I've been driving the truck alote hauling stuff and doing exhaust work on the metro. I finally filled the metro this morning and couldn't find my 3"x5" gaslog card that is usually in my visor pocket. I don't have a trip odometer so I write out the full odometer mileage on that card to keep track tank to tank. I have no way of computing the mpg for the last tank unless the card turns up somewhere .

From now on I plan to put my odometer readings somewhere on my on-line gaslogs so this doesn't happen again.

That stinks. At least you have all of your backlog stored in your EM Garage.

Speaking of which, does you know if we can download that information to open with excel?

Bummer! I take it you don't keep your fuel receipts either, j?

I keep a separate XLS file of my fills because I have an extra step to correct my odometer reading. My receipts are floating around in various drawers & glove box too, but probably couldn't find them all if I had to...

cmittle, there's currently no way to download the fuel log, but that can be arranged - CSV or a tab-delimited page you can open/paste in a spreadsheet.

We're still waiting on garage v 2.0 from Ben's programming friend; once that's in place (can't say for sure when), post a note to remind us.

I do keep my reciepts, but I usually only ever put the mpg for the fill on it. I'll have to check in my reciept box and see if I happened to put an odo reading on my last fill. Doubtful, but I can always hope.

Good news; I was looking at my receipts from the last couple fills and found one with an odo reading. I calculated up thru the current fill using that data to find my last fill mpg . Then I found my 3x5 card with gaslog folded up in some papers in my breifcase . I checked my numbers from the data I calculated earlier and everything agrees.

The bad news is; my mpg fell from mid 70s to 67.91mpg . That's to be expected in a michigan winter. Next tank will be even worse.
