If you drive a car you’ll have noticed that fuel prices are pretty high at the moment, and I guess you’ve at least considered ways to cut down on the amount of money you’re spending on running your vehicle. As part of that, how about keeping track of when you fill up, how much fuel you put in, and your car’s fuel economy? Sounds like a lot of work, but FuelFrog can make the whole process nice and easy.
I’ve been tracking my fuel use for a few months now, and it’s handy to be able to see whether the car is performing well and whether I’m filling up more often than I would expect. As I can claim expenses for business miles, it’s also handy to be able to see whether the amount I’m given is covering the cost of fuel purchases.
By simply entering the distance travelled on your last tank, the price per gallon/litre, and the gallons/litres of fuel added FuelFrog will calculate your fuel economy and keep a record of your fillup. You can even tell the site what measuring system you use (e.g. the UK system of buying fuel in litres, but measuring economy in miles per gallon). And for one last piece of statistical fun, you can specify what car you are driving too.
FuelFrog also accepts updates from Twitter, meaning that you can update via SMS if you want to.
FuelFrog is free to use, and a handy way to track your fuel usage. Now to work out how to save fuel so that I’m not spending so much!
