No, but I do track my fuel/mileage and expenses in an Excel sheet.

Lifetime mileage for my commuter is 41.3 MPG, and my average for January 2013 is 43.8 MPG.

No. I use an excel spreadsheet to track all vehicle costs -- including fuel. My minivan gets 18 mpg on surface streets and 21 to 23 mpg on freeways during long trips.

Yes I do and I got a 25.6 average for the year. Which is not that bad for a 15 year old car with over 200K on it.

The fuel logbook is OK but I use a CarChip and an Excel spreadsheet to get much more comprehensive information. I also post data to Fuelly and Your MPG.

No, but I might give it a try.
My car keeps average for a given trip A or B
A is my millage from day 1 (I've never reset it).
B I reset evvery time I get gas.
They are very accurate based on my millage divided by gallons bought.

No, I run an excel spreadsheet. My fairly new (6.5 month old) commuter is showing a lifetime avg of 40.5 MPG tracking all miles driven and gallons burned.

Not too bad for 21,000+ SoCal commuting miles.

I plan to start using it. I wish it were accessible from my phone so that I can log my fuel purchases as I make them. Maybe there is a way and I just have figured it out yet on my android. Any help?
