    Few additions?

    Ability to add your own petrol station, and to rename the "Gas Price" to "Fuel Price"

    Is there the ability to just put in your current odometer reading and it simply subtracts that from the previous record to automatically find out how many km's you have driven? Would it be hard to add this option.
    Great idea though

    Thomasd: i havnt been able to get that type of output with any inputs :P not sure how that is happening

    Motoko: u can add your own station the drop down is just stations that u have entered, remeber the fillups.csv is filled with a few records of mine so u can see how the program works, if u want to use it either delete the file and make a new one with the same name or just delete the contents of the file with a text editor. and i will make it when u switch to metric units it will display Fuel instead of Gas.

    RobMR2: i can make that a option, trying to decide how to do it, with keeping the option that it has now but im sure i will get it soon, once i get all that and motoko request dont i will post it again

    All: thanks for the input, first program i have done like this and i enjoy all your feedback greatly.

    Hmmm... I have kinda the same problem, only slightly different...
    If I make a test entry, of gas price 1,20, the first time the record shows it's okay, but as soon as I start browsing through the other entries and go back to my test entry, it's messed up. I enclosed the .csv file belonging to it with this post (see the last entry) with this post

    I think this has something to do with the ","-separated thing... But if I use a dot instead, the calc doesn't do the right math.

    setsunakaede, that csv is pretty messed up, all the commas have been replaced with ; and 2 of the entries were on the same line, think that may have been by fault, but if u edit the csv file u need to make sure there is a carrage return at the end of the file. going to repost a working csv file, or just completly remove all the stuff in yours and try it again.

    once again, but then without the excel messing up all stuff. Fault still exists, while using your csv-file.
    You might take a look at the lowest 3 entries, the first two were entered with a comma (,) in the values, the last one with dots.
    The problem lies probably in that you also use the comma as separator between the various input fields.

    Hope it'll help you fine-tune this overall lovely program.
