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.*

First. :)

This would be a great addition to my Torch.

Sashko

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 :-/

JohnMidnight

It automatically backs up to the SD Card you can also export fuel, oil, or maintenance records.

Very handy.

Sashko

Ah, sounds pretty cool then. I guess it's too bad I didn't win it :-D

Not first! But I would still love a copy.

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!

acevansIT

Cool app. Would love a copy :-)

rtullu

I'll have one please and thank you!!! Darn 15mpg truck!

pumaman

Been looking for something like this!

jokeracing

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.

dachtym

I currently do this with an Excel sheet - this app would be much handier!

apagency

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

GEMSONDAY

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.

rlhammon

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!

BCMike

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.

lengend

Oh this can be perfect for the new car (used) I just bought. Would be amazing to get one of these.

My husband has an app for his iPhone. If I get this, I can show him yet again why my Torch is better!! Michele

zoomlink1

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....

IchigoMochi

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!

moh950

I would like to be in.

mtint

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

dopalicious

I'd love a copy of this.

mikelcal

Mike_Luchia

This I could use for sure, my PlayBook goes everywhere with me.

wnm

Another great app I'd like to win

rickkel

I have been looking for a good app for this. Thanks!

bahandi

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.

spNapoleon

i wouldn't have to add up 100 receipts and do the math anymore!

Joel_Zimmerman

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!

mago72

Looks like very practice and clear with historic gas (and alcohool in Brazil) information.

bookeboy

This looks like a super convenient App! I want one.

Alberta Blue

Sweet. Would love to try this.

Kekus

Can I enter twice :-)

This is just what I need to replace the cumbersome Spreadsheet I have to use on my laptop!

The_Adventist

Thanks. I'll take the BlackBerry PlayBook version. Thank you.

ggap10

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.

Palmvim

Can't wait to play with this!

dmann96

That right there is a pretty cool app. A must have for my line of work as well.
