It's good to keep track of your vehicle's fuel efficiency as well as scheduled maintenance and oil changes. I remember as a kid my dad kept a little notebook in the glovebox, jotting down notes when we went to the gas station. Times have changed, and now instead of that notebook, smudged and wrinkled in the glovebox, we have apps that can take the hard work out of keeping track of this information.

Dekerta Software has a nice app for this, Fuel Economy Calculator. While it's been available for BlackBerry for quite awhile, they have also just released a version for the BlackBerry PlayBook. All you have to do is enter in your odometer reading and how much fuel you purchase, and the app will calculate the efficiency for you. You can track the data over time automatically by averages and a handy graph. This app supports multiple vehicles, metric and imperial units, and you can even keep track of oil changes and maintenance as well as set reminders. Available for most BlackBerry smartphones, you can grab Fuel Economy Calculator for $2.99 for your BlackBerry, or just $.99 for your Playbook.

Contest:
Dekerta Software has given us 50 copies of Fuel Economy Calculator for BlackBerry. To enter, leave a comment below. The contest ends this Sunday at midnight PST. One entry per person please, and good luck! *Please note, the contest is not for the PlayBook app, due to App World limitations.*

Hmm, doesn't quite seem as handy as fuelly.com . If backups are possible on it, it might possibly made it close to as good, although Fuelly still beats it for me :-/

Looks like a cool app to have especially if you do a lot of travelling. Would love a copy :)

is an awesome app for BB... have used it for quite awhile and is easy to use... recommend for anyone who wants to track their fuel economy on either their BB or Playbook...

I sure would like to Win a Copy of Fuel Economy Calculator, because I Drive back and forth from Palm Desert,CA to Long Beach 135 Mi Oneway!

Thanks, Kavin L. Rubarth

This app looks gr8 to help me keep track of fuel economy. Hope I win a free copy. Thanks so much for the chance.

Count me in.

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

I'm one of those 'notepad in glovebox' people and have been since I began driving. Keeping track of mileage does more than just track gas usage, it can also give you a heads up that your vehicle has a problem before the problem becomes an expensive repair!

Thanks for the chance to win this!

looks very cool app., very useful for self employed n business class, can keep track for claiming tax deductions

I use a similar app on the Android but would prefer it on the Blackberry. Would love to get hold of this app!

This looks like a great app! Probably a lot more handy than the excel spreadsheet I'm using at the moment.

this will be a great app for me as i prepare to launch a new business involving driving around in a big ol truck!
Good timing!

I work out in the field a lot, and since my employer offers us to use the Concur App, this would compliment it just great!

This app could prove useful, if nothing more than seeing in numbers just how much pain we feel at the pump...

I currently try to keep track of this info on paper. It would be easier, more accurate, and MUCH cooler to have an app like this to take care of this task! LOL. Show me some love, please, and send one of those free copies my way!

This would be the perfect app. Right now I track my mileage online with spritmonitor.de but having it on my phone would make it so much easier. I have a Limited 1 Smart Car and track every single fill up. Thanks for making a great and very useful app.

This looks like a great app. But would be better if it were free. I need something like this for the pig I drive.

Would love have this one. Would love to see if there is any difference between the winter and summer - this app would make it easier.

Great app for car nuts and gear heads like myself!!
Especially those who are car crazy and super picky about maintenance!!

This would be great for me I travel 300km a day back and forth to work. Hard on fuel and oil changes. I would buy the app, but I can't afford it cause all my money goes to gas. :(

I really would like to have an app like this! It would definitely would help to eliminate all the paper clutter (years worth of gas receipts) in my glove compartment of my car.

I didn't read all of the comments, but why pay for an app when there's a free website that does this already?

www.fuelly.com

Mobile site is great, and with the website, it works even with RIM outages!

I am compulsive about tracking fuel mileage and cost on a spiffy excel spreadsheet, but I'd love to give this app a try on y 9810. Hope I win hope I win hope I win.

The way gas prices are going up and down, this would be nice to have to keep track of my 71 Monte Carlo's gas mileage....

It'd be great to track my mileage. I drive an older car and EPA estimates are hit or miss so this'd be great on my 9800.

Thanks for a great contest!

The contest comes just in time. Last Friday did downpayment for a new car, and the vehicle should arrive in couple of weeks. The App will be a good fit to the new Volvo S60 :D

I have calculated every tank of fuel for all my vehicles for the last 20 years! This would be a great app for my BlackBerry!

I could definitely use this app. With my job as a Lineman, I'm constantly driving throughout my Province of Manitoba; accumulating a LOT of miles and consuming liters of gas.

I've already put 15k kms on my vehicle since May.

I would love a copy of this application. Since I am a young driver and my job doesn't provide a decent wage, I could do with this calculator, especially with my Mitsubishi GTO. The petrol tank's like a black hole you throw money into!

Count me in. Suggestion for the Crackberry team - everyday you should talk about a Playbook app and a mobile app. I've picked up a lot of good apps for both me and my kids.

i could definitely make good use of this on my bb...

genius borders insanity...welcome to the line in between...

This is definitely a must have app, and so much better than saving receipts to transcribe later. Definitely keeping my fingers crossed for this one!

I track my cars fuel economy by noting the odometer on the gas reciept and when reach home I transfer all the info from the reciept to a spreadsheet. Even though doing this for over 1 yr now I have never tried to go back and analyze the data. This app would be very helpfull for me since I like to know how my car is doing during long trips or after tuneups or even normally when I drive it daily.

this would go great with my Curve 3G----i do alot of travelling and would like a better idea to calculate....thank you in advance.....

wowow this app is perfect for me! i already try to keep track of my mileage, this would just make it super easy :D
