Rounding the distance would be good, because with 5280 feet in a mile, 1.001 and 1.002 are only 5 feet apart. I think 1 decimal place would be enough. (528 feet accuracy)
also, not sure why it's doing this, but when I sort by, let's say plus fuel, I can open up gas.ini and it shows the correct grade, but on rr reload, it sorts back to distance, even though what is saved in the gas.ini file still shows plus.
it's a little annoying to have to press the right grade every time I load up rr. I can set a separate variable to remeber the last sort order, but I think it should do that from the gas.ini file.
EDIT: I think this has something to do with the "SETVAR" and "BYVAR" commands I was using. As a temporary workaround, I've created a gaspref.txt that saves the last preference, and is loaded automatically each time with rr. This way, someone with a diesel vehicle can just press the gas button, select diesel, and each time after that it will sort by diesel prices automatically.
Thanks! Working great for me in LSXV3.0.
If there's a few hundred million vehicles on the road in the US, and they all saved $.02 per fill up, then America as a whole is saving a few million bucks per fill up. Or at least that's what the oil companies want to believe.
I think it's pretty ridiculous to change the price by only a penny or two here or there. The station near me had plus for 4.029 yesterday, and now is at 4.039, that's only a .2% increase. Are they really making that much more for that extra penny?
3 mi. Since if I'm within 0 mi of a gas station, I'm already there...
Just checked on the car, it says the last update was 10/08/2008. If it's MM/DD/YYYY or DD/MM/YYYY, I don't know, but either way, neither date have happened yet, so it won't update the prices on the car computer.
edit: uh, my car thinks its already october, so nevermind... I had to delete the stations.prv and copy it back over from the laptop. Works now...
0 means don't restrict stations by range. It's in the readme ;)
readme? who ever really reads the readme?
oh, ya, I guess that would have helped maybe.
Even still, if I don't restrict it by range, it's gonna start pulling up stations in BFE, Wyoming, and I'm definitely not driving a few hundred miles to save a few cents per gallon.
For now, my gaspref.txt method works just fine.
I think the site lists the nearest 20 stations to where you are, so unless you live in the middle of beyond there will be 20 stations way within 100 miles let alone a few hundred ;)
