    Ok, I just downloaded it from the appmart. I am having all sorts of problems

    First, when I copy the skin files to CarWings for testing, and click on add fuel, it errors out as it is looking for MilEage.skin, not Milage.skin, which is the name of the skin file. Simply renaming the 2 mileage skin files took care of that.

    How do you see what you are entering with the NUMOSK in the text box? If I put the "MILAGE_FUELUNITS" as the label code, it does show, but when going to milage2 it just appends the price after the miles.

    For instance, if I put 12 gallons at $3.56 a gallon, the label reads "123.56"

    Is there a way to enter the car's odometer in the plugin so there is a reference point for accuracy? There is a +/- 1 & 10 to adjust it, but adjust it against what?

    Thanks for the work on this, as it is a really nice little tool for those that do not have fuel economy on the dash, as I do not. I tried numerous times to get this to work back in the day when Festy released it, and was never able to then either

    I don't get email notifications from this forum for some reason, so only saw your PM when I logged in just then.
    Sorry about the ribbing But its a good plugin and didn't want to see it die.

    fixed but I changed the skin file not its name.

    are you using the milage_P0-9 or milage0-9 in the milage2 skin? For putting in the price you should use the milage_p

    the milage_plus /minus buttons remove units from the total trip. I didn't see the point of this so I added the accuracy adjustment % (see ini file). I found that my mileage was allways out by 3% so I just multiply the gps mileage by this % and its now perfect.

    well hopefully this time we'll crack it

    Yep, that was the problem! Haaha Sorry! I did not have the _P on the milage2.skin.

    I am using an NumOSK to enter the fuel data, and not a full screen skin. All is working well, except after pressing OK on the Milage2.skin, the plugin is going back a screen / sending an ESC command. This should be handled in the skin really, and not the plugin, just for flexibility. Is there some way I can override or work around this? As of now, when I press OK, it takes me back to the skins Menu.skin.

    Also, the MILEAGE_VOLUNITS label does not appear to be working. It contains nothing. Isn't this the label that should contain either Gallons or Liters?

    I can package the skin I have here up, if you want to have a look at everything, and see if I am doing something stupid on my part

    EDIT: I just checked the SkinTool and after MILAGE_OK is fired, it is executing an "EXIT" command.

    Glad that was an easy fix

    I agree but its what was originally in festy's plugin and if I change it all the current skins will fail when I really wanted backward compatablity. The only way out would be to depricate the command and add a new one.EDIT: I've added a new command called milage_logfuel, does the same as milage_ok but no screen exit.

    not at the moment

    It is. Whats your internationalisation set to in RR. Edit: You are using milage_volunits and not mileage_volunits

    Can you send me that plus you milage.ini file.

    If you check the first post it tells you what types of logs are written out. Depending on what info you want take your pick.

    Is this dead again? The original version crashes RR and this version I can't find in the AppMart.
