I'd like to see a way to change the vehicle that comes up first when I enter a new fuel purchase. I mostly buy gas for one car but a different vehicle comes up first so I always have to change it.

I, for one, don't think the suggestion is clearly worded. I'm merely reading into what he wrote and assuming what he meant. I'm sure hel return and clarify any misunderstanding on our part. After all, he's a long time participant and contributor who wants to add to the website. Or at least I think its clear he does.

If it's so clearly worded CK, why don't you explain to those of use who don't get it.

The suggestion was clearly worded and so I have no doubt what was intended. My statement of the 19th was included merely to differentiate the present suggestion from a similar previous suggestion.

BTW, I wouldn't pay much attention to what "no one" says; his thinking is clearly muddled.

Time is up! This suggestion has been added to the Suggestion Tracking List as a new subject.

This suggestion is slightly defferent from the previous one in that it asks for a way to specify which vehicle is the default vs. relying on the last vehicle used to be the default. Practically speaking, doing it either way would appear to solve the problem.

If you had read CampKohler's Suggested Topic List you would have seen that this has already been suggested. You may want to use CampKohler's list to identify the previous topic and see the discussion already taken place.

CelticHeart:
He's referring to the Fuel Logbook vehicle defaults to the order in which you listed your vehicles, thus the vehicle you currently drive (or drive most often) isn't necessarily the first vehicle that is displayed.

buckeyecountry:
I'm sure the Gas Buddy members in the Seattle area appreciate the efforts GasUpTheCar has made. He/she has posted a gas price nearly every quarter. Granted, many members might achieve his point total in less than a week, I'm sure that either they're being overly aggressive or there are mitigating circumstances. Or something.
