4. Gas Manager
Gas Manager is for anyone who wants to get more detailed on their fuel consumption. It will provide all kinds of information by tracking fuel consumption, price, cost per mile, monthly mileage, and more.
Designed for anybody owning one or more vehicles (cars, motorcycles, etc.), Gas Manager allows you to create a detailed dashboard with your fuel consumption, your gas expenses and the miles you have traveled.
For each vehicle, you can input your fill-ups in a matter of seconds, and keep track several parameters in different ways (overview, graphs or lists).
– gas consumption
– gas price
– mileage per month
– cost of gas per mile/kilometer
– mileage per gallon/liter
– mileage per euro/dollar/etc.
A carbon footprint can also be calculated, depending on the vehicle’s consumption. You can assess the total mass of carbon dioxide (CO2) your vehicle produces, as well as the average value per day and per kilometer traveled.
