What are you guys using to track fuel economy?

Lets face it, one way to judge how your truck is running(outside of a monitor) is to keep an eye out on your mileage. I know pen and paper is always an option but I'm a little bit of a tech junky. Anyone have any iPhone apps that they love? I'm using Gas Manager right now.

I really like "my car project". It keeps track of mpg and also all my maintenance. Every time you fuel up you enter your mileage, gallons and cost. From that it will remind you if you need to do any maintenance.

I also use fuelly it is a very cool program. I text my MPG (miles, price per gallon, and gallons) to it every time I fill up and it texts me right back my mpg for that tank and my overall. You can also go online and look at all your stats.

I have always used GasBuddy. They have a price reporting app (Android) for now, and are supposed to be working on a fuel log book too. But I use it online till the app updates.

What the he!!? I just punch in my miles off the trip odometer into my phone calculator and divide that by the number of gals on the pump. Anything else is a waste of valuable life time.
