If you are anything like me, you are a fanatic about tracking the mileage you get with your vehicle. In the old days, this meant keeping a pad, pencil, and calculator in my glovebox. That was a tedious process, especially if I didn’t fill the tank to full each time.
Along comes Mileage. Mileage is an app for tracking the Miles Per Gallon (MPG) (or kilometers per litre) that you are getting between fill ups. That alone makes the app valuable to me, but there is so much more to Mileage.
To use Mileage you simply enter the price per gallon, gallons filled, and your odometer reading each time you fill up. Mileage will automatically keep track of that data for you to review. You can view a history of all your fill-ups and some nifty statistics about your fuel consumption. You can even view charts to get a visual representation of the different statistics.
The amount of statistics Mileage provides is staggering. It keeps track of things like amount of fuel per fill up, average cost per mile, and a whole host of other interesting information. One of its greatest features is that it allows you to export this data as a .csv file (comma separated values). That data can than be imported into spreadsheet software and manipulated to your hearts content.
- Easy to use
- Tons of data and statistics
- Ability to export data
- Intuitive UI
- If screen sleeps while viewing data, the data will not show when screen is activated again. (switch tabs in the app instantly shows data again)
- Would be nice if there were some predefined service reminders with the suggested mileage between servicing.
Mileage is a great tool for those who like to track their fuel consumption and cost. It will also allow you to enter service reminders for things like changing oil, rotating tires, etc. If you are someone with a car, this app is definitely worth checking out.
