GreaseMunky User Guide

Fuel Log

The fuel log displays all the fuel fill-up data available:

The date field is in the upper left; to the right of that is the cost. Costs are displayed using a locale-specific symbol (in this example, a dollar sign). The symbol to be used is dictated by the locale setting you specify in your iPhone's system settings – there are no GreaseMunky settings that will impact which symbol is used.

On the next line is the odometer reading, the fuel economy (if the application is set to display this information) and the volume of fuel purchased. The odometer reading can be displayed in miles or kilometers; volume is shown in either liters or gallons. These are selected using the GreaseMunky Preferences.

Fuel economy can be displayed in mpg, km/L, L/100km or ga/100mi. There are two ways that fuel economy is typically represented: the volume of fuel consumed for every 100 units of distance, or the simple ratio of units of distance for every unit of fuel. MPG (miles per gallon) is one of the latter, this is the number of miles traveled for every gallon of fuel. Likewise for kilometer per liter. We often see fuel consumption represented in L/100km, that is, liters per every 100 kilometers. GreaseMunky allows the user to switch between these two computations of fuel economy using the setting labeled Use L/100km.

If there are any notes associated with the fueling, they are displayed below the volume and odometer readings. Only one line is available for notes, if the note spans more than one line, you must go to the editor to see it displayed in total.
