    Never thought of the settings in plugin manager, like you said, most of the settings are there, still no settings for engine capacity or MAF, do these not matter?

    I understand avoid GPS creep, but not StandaloneGPS/Use External GPS, (I assume these are the same, just labeled differently) does that mean not to use the GPS configured for RR?

    Still do not know what these others mean

    DTELowThreshold
    OBDVE

    again, it would be nice to include this info in the readme file, especially using plugin manager to finish setting things up.


    I hope you find my feedback useful

    Keep up the good work!
    Oops misread vehicle "information" for vehicle "odometer". Engine capacity and other settings not shown on the settings screen are not "yet" useful. They are there in case i need a fallback on some obd handling basically. Standalone and External GPS are one in the same and it allows you to assign a seperate GPS serial port for RRVM instead of depending on the gps data supplied by RR.

    And yes i need to add ALL the setting information in the readme. I will be sure to do that before the next build is posted. Thanks for your feedback.

    Version 3.1.6 updated. Improved support for international date formats. Should fix any issues with international users fuel logs, history, and updating vehicle scheduled maintenance. Also added settings description in the readme.

    Finally some progress on the scripting for vehicle tracker. A full days worth of warping my brain around PHP and Java and here we are. Still have a little bit of user account handling to do, and obviously a lot of css, but it should be available for registration soon.

    Question

    I'm new to RideRunner, and also for this plugin.
    Maybe it's my fault, but I can't understand this MPG calculation from the plugin.
    I've added these fuel data:

    Odometer____Price____Amount
    48800_______2_______60
    49700_______2_______60
    50600_______2_______60

    and in the attached image is what I see in the fuel log:

    Name:  fuel1.JPG
Views: 232
Size:  71.9 KB

    If I do the math, I must obtain 15 MPG for each fuel item: 900 / 60 = 15

    Instead, it shows 66,67: maybe 60 / 900 * 1000 ?

    "Average miles per gallon" and "Estimated distance to empty" seems incorrect too.

    Can someone help me with this strange thing?
    Thanks!

    providing some information might help.

    like which country are you from?


    I suspect a European one, not UK though, as you seem to have commas for decimal points.

    Yes, I'm from Italy, my operating system language is Italian (XP SP3), and I have to put comma instead of dot otherwise it was not recognized ( i.e. 1.234 -> 1234).
    If you need other information, I'll be glad to help.
    Thanks!

    What volume system does italy use, is it truly MPG or is it Liters per 100 km? If its the latter than the formula is like so:

    (FuelAdded 60 / DistanceDriven 900) * 1000 = 66.66~

    This was a formula given to me by a driver in australia.

    If italy uses MPG like the US then yes, the calculations are wrong. Basically i use the RR Variable $ISUNITS$ to declare whether or not to use MPG or L/100KM. Admittedly, it is a short cut that i need to fix, as I understand that the US is not the ONLY place that uses MPG.

    In Italy we use liters per 100 km, or better, km per liter.
    By the way, the formula you use for liters/100km is wrong, because:

    FuelAdded 60 / DistanceDriven 900 gives you how many liters per 1 km, so to obtain how many liters per 100km you have to multiply by 100, not 1000.
    Way better is to divide DistanceDriven by FuelAdded to obtain km per liter.

    If you use variable ISUNITS, you may have another option to have km per liter.

    I can't find anything to set MPG or L/100km in the settings, or am I wrong?

    Thanks for your interest!

    I don't know if you're still working on this plugin but I'm having troubles with the MPG/ L/100Km as well. I'm in Canada but am getting numbers like thehobbit78. In my "RRVM_MILESPERGALLON" label I'm getting MPG but it's off by a decimal point. It's showing 1.09 when it should be 10.9. The custom list shows 216.35. It looks like that is L/100km with a little rounding error using the wrong MPG (1.09MPG = 215.79 L/100Km).

    The formula the "driver in Australia" gave you is what's giving you the wrong decimal place. If it's L/100Km, you should multiple by 100, not 1000.
    In my case, my numbers were:
    Starting Km = 99380Km. Fill up at 99785 with 87.6L
    99785-99380 = 405Km
    87.6L/405Km = 0.216L/Km or x 100 and get 21.6 L/100Km or 10.9 MPG

    If you could make that assumingly quick change, that would be great for everyone who isn't American.
    PROGRESS:

    Software: 99% - Always upgrading and improving.
    Installation: 100%
