    When you get to doing stuff in metric, you also need to support litres per 100 km which is the standard metric fuel measurement measure (at least in this country).

    Another feature idea. I've done up an unskinned fuel logger (see my worklog) and included a date filter. The idea being that today you are on vacation and off on a driving holiday. So you set the filter to day's date and it only shows the entries that are added so the file from that point on so the averages are for the trip, not for the full log.

    I also have a Servo field that I can pop open and select from a list of service stations or type in free text into the field. I have got an on screen numeric data entry window for touch screen entry of numbers, but for text in this field, I just rely on the mini keyboard in the centre console.

    I have a diesel engine and I have heard of major repair bills emmanating from dirty fuel so I wanted to log where I filled up so I could sue somebody.

    The only problem with this is there's no clean way within road runner to enter a date. In fact the way my plugin is currently set the date is automatically added when adding gas (add's today's date). The only way i can think of to add a date is 3 NUMOSK's for day/month/year, or 1 NUMOSK to enter all the data... then have to worry about parsing for each element and making sure its in the proper format. Just doesnt seem worth it.

    Agreed, I default the date and you must click on an unlock button to be able to edit it (so you can enter stuff from an old log book). One of the reasons I did not bother skinning it was because the date entry and filtering a record set is so trivial in the language I used. Changing the date range is not something you do every day. I would just use a single number and parse it afterwards into D M & Y and let the user worry about correct format.

    You would also have to support DDMMYY (which we use) and MMDDYY formats in your INI file.

    One more pic before the beta goes out. This one shows the maintenance slider in action.



    Disregard the duplicate entries shown for Oil Change.. its the last bug i fixed (switching skins would cause the first item to duplicate)
    I've got cost per mile for individual maintenance items AND total cost per mile. Should total cost per mile include cost per mile from fuel calculations? After that its release time
