Fueleconomy.gov.

Because maybe the data I enter can help someone when buying a car.

Also, fuelly's categories for each car are all boned, and viewing data by year/type is all weird on fuelly. The fueleconomy.gov categories are actually curated.

I use Fueleconomy My MPG site on my phone. Cant get the other to work at all.
Any tips on making sure I enter my mileage in Fueleconomy correctly? Should I round off the gallons for more accuracy?
Just wondering because they show I get only 37 mpg, my car says 42 average.

I enter mine to the third decimal (what the pump gives me). It calculates exactly like it should?

What data is giving you 37 mpg unexpectedly? Can you copy/paste those two rows from your log here?

Ok, as you see, mileage is going down with the temperature, moderate city driving. Not pleased w this mileage.

I mean that's just the way it is. Colder weather just lowers fuel mileage. There are lots of factors. Winter gas. Longer warm up times. Lower engine temperatures. Stiffer tires. Running the AC compressor for defrost. Lower efficiency batteries. Using the headlights more. It all adds up and we all get lower fuel mileage. It's just normal.

Gotcha, makes sense as half of my driving is at night with the windshield defroster on.
Did get up to an average of 42 the other night though, full tank with AC off and lots of coasting in D (auto trans). Winter just hit here in South FL, mpg went down with the temperatures. Thanks.
