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?

Yes not only to keeping an average for mpg but also cost not only for the present year but for every year there after. Mine is: 30.8 mpg. Average; 34.6 mpg was my best.

Got a bunch of gas slips in my wallet to be entered when I get to it. Both personal car and a recent rental. I've got about 6 years of full records of all cars driven.
