MobileMiles

A simple web app tracking vehicle maintenance and fill-up statistics. A completely reimagined version 2.0 is now under development. Expect big things!

Overview

MobileMiles is simple web app for tracking fuel mileage and other statistics straight from your mobile device. Every time you fill up, simply enter the number of gallons pumped and the unit price, tap submit and you're set! The legacy version is available at gas.randomland.net. The in-development 2.0 version is available at mobilemiles-ui.herokuapp.com.

Ok, what does it do for me?

MobileMiles provides a simple HTML interface to a "fill-up" list (version 1.0 stores this in a Google Drive spreadsheet, version 2.0 uses a database). The following stats are viewable from the web interface:

  • fuel mileage
  • trip distance
  • fill-up location
  • fill-up date and time
  • fill-up notes

The "stats" sheet gives you a historical look, calculating these at 30- and 60-day intervals as well as an "all-time" column. These advanced stats are calculated, but not currently displayed:

  • pump-price accuracy
  • days between fill-ups
  • cost per day
  • cost per mile

The entry form will autofill most of the form for you with "guesses", saving you time at the pump. The autofilled fields are:

  • date and time of fill-up
  • "favorite" location (most frequently occuring text value)
  • odometer reading estimate (based on last mileage + average trip distance)
  • price-per-gallon estimate (uses last fill-up's value)
