    Who uses what?

    I mainly use Road Trip by Darren Stone on iTunes. Requires no network connection, and logs a bunch of other stuff if you want to. After a few fuel ups, I will input the data from road trip into fuelly for everyone to see.



    Road Trip allows you to input tire size data, fuel tank size, and lets you see how far you should be able to go on a tank, how much you spend on fuel and services, and you can even setup a road trip and view just those mileage stats. It can use the GPS to note the gas stations you are fueling up at.

    Over all it's a great app, I have been using it on my Taco, and my work car since June.

    What do you use, what would you recommend?

    I use the same thing! It works great and the best part is that it does not require internet like many other apps. I just have an ipod touch. I wish they made this for my blackberry and I would be in business! I may have to create one now that I think of it :D

    The Tacoma is in the number 6 position in the top 10 cars on Fuelly, and is the only truck in the top 10! Looks like Tacoma drivers are pretty conscious of their fuel efficiency.

    Road trip on my Iphone. I love how fast it is to track a fuel up, and the option to see a graphical display of your fuel economy.

    I use Gas Cubby on my iphone. You can export your fuel and service info as a .csv file, or synch it with the developer's servers and access it online.
