Not exactly a bug (haven't found any of those), but can you add a "Recent Posts" link to the main page, and add a "Mark Forums Read" link to the bottom of the Recent Posts page?

Oh, and any chance you can add one more significant digit to the input fields in the fuel log? Gas pump says 8.039 gallons, but I have to round up to 8.04 or down to 8.03. Thanks.

I experience the same thing, only when it's greater than 10 gallons, maybe you mean 18.039?

Significance

The question really is how "significant" is that digit???

One-thousanth of a gallon? I don't think the pump is that accurate for one. One-hundreth seems to be sufficient to just round it using common rounding rules.

In addition, all data before such a change would need be considered inferior due to the additional digit.

Personally, the fourth digit is moot.

It's provided by the gas pump, and if you use less than 10 gallons, the field allows you to put that digit in, so obviously the garage stores and uses that many decimal places. I also occasionally will write down "450.45" miles instead of "450.4" if the tenths digit is halfway between "4" and "5". Not a big issue, which is why I labeled it as "not a bug", but it is the input field, not the software itself, which limits the accuracy.

Database error

There seems to be an error in the database here:

http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...ct-2259-9.html

If I go to page 8 (http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...ct-2259-8.html) and click for page 9, I get the error. If I skip directly to page 10, it works.
