One of the main
feature about fuel management is the ability to use full/partial/misses
- Full refuel: to be used when you fill-up the
tank. Do not forget to set the distance and quantity if you want the
entry to be included in fuel efficiency stats. Fuel price is needed for
- Partial refuel: you didn't fill-up the tank (for
instance because the fuel was too expensive), so no problem, just tell
my car that this is a partial refuel. If next refuel is a full refuel,
then My Cars will compute the average fuel efficiency of both entries.
You could also use several partial refuels before having 1 full. In all
this cases the fuel efficiency stats will be updated when you will enter
a full refuel.
- Missed refuel: to be used when you have no idea
of the quantity of fuel you have entered. Can be when you lend your car
to a friend that doesn't car about stats :-). So when you take the car
back and do a full refuel, just flag the refuel as missed and just enter the total distance
missed. A missed refuel must always be a Full refuel but based on an unknown state.
It's possible to define custom categories for maintenance records. By default My Cars provides 3:
- Major service
- Small service
- Change of tyres
Obviously you should define your own services.
Each maintenance record is linked to 1-n categories. For instance you could record a "service" that includes the change of tyres and a major service.
It's possible to define custom bill types for bill records. By default My Cars will provide some that will depend on your locale.
A reminder can be set for a maintenance record for instance. You can set a reminder based on 2 values:
- time (every x year, x month, or x day)
- distance (every x miles/km)
If both are set the reminder will be effective when the first is reached.
For instance you can set a reminder for a "Major service" every 6 months or 10'000 miles/kms
A page summarize all the reminders with the expected dates. In order to access the reminder page you need to press on the clock icon below the tabs on the right.
By configuration you can enable notifications. If set you'll have a notification that you can acknowledge or snooze.
- maintenance reminders (oil change, tyres pressure, etc...)
- time and/or distance
- uses the values of the last maintenance records to estimate next events.
- bill (insurance, etc...)
- a bill is more seen as regular, hence my cars doesn't use the last bill to estimate the next one.
- other reminders (anything not related to maintenance or bills)
- import/export using CSV format (UTF-8 if using a text editor)
- import/export using XML format (UTF-8)
- works with Microsoft Excel 2003 onwards
