    UAE (guess you don't know where that is )

    OUTPUT

    Avg cost per KM
    Best gas station by L / 100 KM
    Best gas grade by L / 100 KM
    Best gas station overall by L / 100 KM (all octane fuels combined)

    i'm not sure if its MPG or L/100 KM. nobody cares about fuel economy here. (A gallon is for around 1$) Its cheaper than water (seriously)

    Man I think you better (easier) have some knid of settings screen where you can easily alter all these settings. Although I doubt it can be done through flash.

    Keep up the good work.

    I've been thinking about this project for some time but i think will pose a problem with calculations nothing anyone can do about it unless you always fill up and run the tank dry (which isnt good for the car)
    otherwise how can any gas calculation be accurate?
    for example and extreme example would be i fill up then drive to half a tank
    put in only 1 dollars worth of gas, drive 1 mile and then fill up a second time down the road for 5 dollars. at this point i will have the caculation that i just got 1 MPG which is totally off.

    either this isnt going to work or im missing something here am i just having a brain fart?

    Just put a check box in the input screen to let you know that this was not a fill up

    The next time you fill up you will be back on track

    For this to work acurately you need to know the exact amount of fuel you have in the tank at any given time. For example you have full tank of 15 gal.
    Then you drive it down to 5 gal. lets say 200 miles driven and then you fill it up again to 15 gal. it will give you calculated 20 miles per gal. This is correct.

    Next example 15 gal. in the tank, you drive it down to 5 gal. again 200 miles driven. Calculated 20 miles per gal. Now you put in only 5 gal. the system needs to know that you have only 10 gal. in the tank. You drive 100 miles and consume 5 gal. (still 20MpG) next you fill in 10 gal. which gives you a full tank again but your total miles driven is 300 and you used 15 gal. (20MpG)
    Does this makes sense?
