Gas Mileage Tracker

Recommended Posts

Scottswan

I'm thinking of writing a gas mileage tracker in AutoIt but I have a couple questions...

a. Has anyone already written one? I did a search here but all I found interesting was Larry's thread about Acetone and gas mileage.

b. Is there a way to add a date picker to the gui?

I have one that goes back to 2004 in excel, but it's getting cumbersome to add to now because it's so long.

Plus I never was able to get the aggregate stuff to work correctly in excel.

Can you be a little more specific on what you want? Do you want a list with the date, and the MPG with the car name? (Just a example, not sure what you want)

Example of a date picker:

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

; GUI
GuiCreate("Sample GUI", 250, 250)
GuiSetIcon(@SystemDir & "\mspaint.exe", 0)


GuiCtrlCreateDate("", 5, 5, 200, 20)
GuiCtrlCreateLabel("(Date control expands into a calendar)", 10, 305, 200, 20)



GuiSetState()
While GuiGetMsg() <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
WEnd

With gas prices like they are today we sure could use one. That is a great idea...

Field wise for the program, what did you have in mind?

Car: Make/Model

Date: date

Price: Cost of gas

Gas Amount: Total gallons of fill up

Total trip miles: Miles on trip odometer

Miles Type: Highway, City, Highway/City

Total: MPG

Then Average Data for the car ($Car)

MPG:

Highway MPG:

City MPG:

Highway Miles:

City Miles:

Total Miles:

Thats what I had in mind.

Here's what I have now...

What I'm envisioning is a flat file db, probably comma separated so can export from excel right into this.

I nice, tabbed gui for data entry. The date picker would be a current month popup so you can quickly choose the day of the fillup, not critical. Basic stats shown on the entry gui and then a popup gui for advanced stats and a grid showing the raw data. Have an entry for additives such as acetone, which I've used off and on for over a year now.

I've looked around for a freeware gas mileage tracker and there are a few out there, but they all suck.
