fuelly.com

Since I started using fuelly.com, I have seen several other people on the site with it. So far I really like the site, becuase it keeps track of the average mileage of the vehicle. Things can change from tank to tank. You can either fill all the way up to the nozzle everytime or you can be like me and use fuelly. I just fill until the pump stopps and the tank reads F.

I wonder if you can use fuelly for tax purposes?? Maybe if you suppliment it with bank statements. Hmmm.

I just wanted to see what everyones take on this site was. Like it, dont like it, why, why not? Those sorts of things.

I need to get a blackberry or some phone with internet like that, so when I go on the long trips, I can be sure to log it in.

So far I am really enjoying the site, and I encourage others to join as well.

Took me a while to get a BlackBerry. I just got tired of when I went hunting and got bored that the internet on my phone just wasn't up to par to where I was. Plus, being an IT guy I needed email on the go just in case something happened. It was easier than trying to get machines to txt me.

Makes sense. The phone I have right now is one of those phones that you can drop into the toilet, pick it up and immediately call someone with. I think that I can even run it over with the rig and it wont break. But sadly it doesnt have internet or anything fun on it, so I am looking into getting a new phone.

Just make sure you get a cover. I bought the $20 hard plastic cover and a $12 screen cover. The cover looks like crap, mainly because it's fallen off the race car and had wrenches dropped on it, but the phone itself looks brand new. The case usually breaks open when it drops, but I think that it absorbs most of the impact so the phone isn't damaged. Kind of like when a NASCAR car hits the wall and breaks apart. Reduces the forces.

makes sense. I will defiantly get a case for it when I buy my phone. My problem is that I like the flip kind. Dont really like blackberry's all that much, but like the idea of them.
