One thing that I would like to see changed is instead of miles, make it the odometer reading.

Then the application can compute the miles off of that.

It will make it closer to the old books that our parents and grandparents used to carry in the cars and fill out at every fill up.

"Parents and grandparents"!? I do it now :-)

Actually, I use Excel. Watching the mpg average over the last five tanks of fuel gradually creeping up is a joy to behold, I'll tell you...

If this ever supports liters, Imperial gallons (instead of those baby US gallons), and kilometers, it might appeal to a wider audience of people who *really* have to watch how much they spend at the pump. $2 for 3,8l? Peanuts!

Not bad as a first cut, and metric support is almost there (just allow us to change the date format, okay? - dd/mm/yy is more prevalent than you might think, and more logical for many).

I'd like to be able to edit the 'gas' type - here is Australia, it is possible to buy gas (LPG), petrol (regular, and premium) and diesel.

Either offer more or editable options and it'll be sweet. Not so sure about 'fillups' - how about 'refill' or even 'fill-up(s)'.

Also, the metric statement in the foot of the pane doesn't fit the default window - and should really wrap as does the nifty table cells (though they get truncated, too, if you make it small).

Minor detail: headings don't align with table cells...

For the price, though - excellent!

I agree with Ivanovitch:
It should be the odometer reading that users enter--that way, we can let the computer do the calculating rather than us fallible humans.

dd/mm/yy isn't all that more logical, it's just a convention you are used to, as are the folks who use mm/dd/yy.

logical is yyyy/mm/dd as that is sortable. there is no logic behind having a day or month first. you use the largest factor first with numbers for instance we say "5 and 1/3 meters" not "1/3 and 5 meters."

but you are right, there should be the option to choose any (illogical) date format. also you are right with odemeter thing.

I to agree that the "Phone Home" feature needs to be removed. The app isn't that complicated and should not need it. Other than that it does what is says and it is helpful to some of us. But I will not use it till it gets FIXED ie no phone home.

Please FIX

The "Phone Home" thing is Gas checking for an update. In the next version I will include preferences and one of them will be the ability to turn off checking for updates.

hmmm...yes...Gas called 63.247.135.50 upon boot, but no error when I first booted it with my network cable pulled out.

Checking my log it appears Gas is harmlessly looking for an update, but I'm not expert enough to be sure. I have nothing against apps phoning home for a newer version but it is a little creepy that there's nothing in the app that discloses this network behavior. Until this behavior is documented I will not be using it as don't need it that bad.
