    I also use aCar, seems really good.

    In the last 5 months 16 days, I've covered 6,711 miles, used 271.52 gallons of premium fuel for a total cost of $880.74 and an average of 26.119 MPG.

    Will add in another vote for Acar, one of the better vehicle tracking apps there is.

    If all you're looking for is a gas mileage tracker, Mileage is a pretty good app. I've honestly never used aCar, so I can't speak for it, but just in looking at the overview given on the market, it does seem more comprehensive. Might have to try it sometime.

    I am also for "acar". It is a great app, and is one of the few apps I have on my phone that would never be one of the "removed to make more room on my phone" programs.

    I use fuel calculator mileage by tom bernard anyz. Nice interface and simple to use to track gas mileage. Acar looks very interesting, but I don't think I want to keep track of so many details or require so much analysis. I do keep a running memo in my dropbox listing date, work done, odometer and cost.

    Seems good at first trial. Will have to see if it can work with mixed units. For example as a Canadian we have km and litres. The odometer is in km. So what happens if I drive to the United States and fill up there? Will the app allow the fillup in U.S. gallons and so many km? If it does not do this then as a Canadian near the U.S. border, it is of no use to me. I would have to go back to using Fuelclinic.com online which can handle that.

    Another vote for aCar. I use the paid version and it's worth the money.

    I don't think it will do more than one type of measurement at a time, best thing to do is save receipts and convert it or convert the fillup as soon as you do it.

    I use fuelly.com

    They do not have an official app, but the mobile website lets you add fuel ups on the go. You do have to view the full website to see statistics, but theres a quick link at the bottom of the mobile website and the full site still looks great on android. They indicate they are working on an API for other apps to send data to them

    Been using aCar (paid version) for the longest. Love this app & couldn't imagine ditching it for something else.

    Lot of unhappy people feel the 5 ★ ratings are faked. All 29 of them took place on the same day and only say stuff like "great app."

    I travel between Canada and the US a lot. Does anyone know if there is an app that I can change from Gal to Liter on each fill up? It's a pain to manually convert US per Gal to CAD per Liter each time in the US.
