Hi Community! :D

This is to broadcast that a new Android application has been launched to Android Market - Vehicle Diary; it tracks the fuel/expense/maintenance statistics of your vehicles.

The application calculates the fuel economy/consumption of a vehicle either by 'Full Tank Method' or by 'Reserve Tank Method'. (Screenshot 2) If your vehicle has a Reserve Tank Indicator; Reserve Tank Method is recommended.

@Full Tank Method@
This method asks user to enter the two kinds of entries; Partial Tank fuel entry and Full Tank fuel entry. The fuel economy/consumption is calculated at every Full Tank fuel entry (except the very first Full Tank fuel entry). In order to calculate accurate fuel economy/consumption the application needs two Full Tank fuel entries. Therefore, the very first fuel economy/consumption is calculated on second Full Tank fuel entry and the subsequent fuel economy/consumption values are calculated on every Full Tank fuel entry.

@Reserve Tank Method@
This method asks user to enter the two kinds of entries; Partial Tank fuel entry and Reserve Tank odometer entry. The fuel economy/consumption is calculated at every Reserve Tank odometer entry (except the very first Reserve Tank odometer entry). In order to calculate accurate fuel economy/consumption the application needs two Reserve Tank odometer entries. Therefore, the very first fuel economy/consumption is calculated on second Reserve Tank odometer entry and the subsequent fuel economy/consumption values are calculated on every Reserve Tank odometer entry.

As generally all bikes have a Reserve Tank Indicator, the Reserve Tank Method is very useful to calculate the fuel economy/consumption of a bike.

Besides fuel economy/consumption, the application also calculates other Fuel Statistics like maximum/average/minimum values of Fuel Quantity, Fuel Price, Fuel Cost and Cost per Distance Unit. The application also provides a time-based search interface to filter the Fuel Entry records and generates the Fuel Statistics for the selected time-period.
