    Does anyone know what the update does? I installed it and it doesn't seem any different.

    Do ANY of the gas/car apps track fuel cost, MPG per tank, and maintenance accurately? I've downloaded 3 and none of them seem to work perfectly. CarStat was close, but it had some fuzzy math because I don't think it had a starting point for MPG. It also wouldn't tell you MPG per tank, just in date ranges. Others do MPG per tank, but no prices or maintenance.

    I'll pay $4.99 for an app that does all this stuff right!!!!!

    I have car stat and thought something was a little wonky there. What I did like was the option to log car maintenance. What were the other two you purchased?

    Gas Hog and MPG. I really think CarStat will be fine with something to fix that, especially since I can edit anything later (especially the date). It's just annoying that nobody got it right off the bat. Darnit!!! :)

    That's what CarStat does, but it has the problems I mentioned above, mainly with MPG. If I knew how to program at all, I'd design my own that's very similar to CarStat, but alas I don't know squat outside of HTML.

    Hey everyone,
    I am the author of Car Care and am happy to get your feedback on the program, either by email or here in the forum.

    Version 1.05 mainly added metric units and the Partial fillup. Version 1.1, which I just finished development on, has better metric and international support and allows notes to be added to every fillup. It also allows importing from the Car Care website so you can take your historical data and add it to your phone to carry with you anywhere.

    I'd think mine does... with the version 1.1 update that I just finished development on, it now supports 3 decimal places for the cost of the gas. A future version will replace cost per gallon with the total cost of the fill.

    That happens to be my price ;)

    I plan to add this functionality very soon, probably in the next update.

    Cheers,
    Karl

    The importing pages will be available shortly after 1.1 is posted.
