    also for the requirements, only thing i can think of is u need to have the .net framework installed
    That's probably why it's not working. Don't have the .net framework on here. Where can I get that again? I know it's on my desktop, but I've lost track.

    Marsupial summed it up well with the math.

    You have to convert of course from gallons to KM then you have to turn the math around to show how many liters you will use up for a set distance of 100km (63 miles).

    For example.. when I was driving to Munich, my car was getting between 8 - 10 liters per 100 km. The lower the number is, the better you are doing. Unlike American MPG which is the higher the number, the better.

    So, to use my example, in 100km, I will have used about 8-10 liters of gas (actually, I think I used more because I was on the Autobahn, but you get the idea).

    Shouldn't it figure out my miles per gallon from the last fillup instead of the current one ?

    No it should be the current because that tells you how much gas you used during that driving period. And then u just divide the miles driven by how many gallons you filled up. Frodo any plans to embed this once he releases the code or make you own
