As I write this, the area near Atlanta where I live is just beginning to come out of a gas shortage that has affected all of the drivers who drive in and around Atlanta. I’ve never seen anything like it, and I can tell you from experience that passing ten or fifteen gas stations that are totally out of gas all at the same time is pretty unsettling. Even when you can find gas these days, you’re forced to pay an extremely high price for it. It should come as no surprise then that drivers are doing all they can to get more for their money when they drive, and Fuelly is a site that will help you to see how your gas mileage is doing.

I never used to worry about keeping track of my mileage, but these days I’m more curious about it than I’ve ever been. Instead of just writing the figures down on a piece of paper that you’ll probably end up losing, you can use Fuelly to record them and see how your mileage is working out over a period of time. By comparing the results with the EPA estimates for your car and the mileage of other drivers utilizing Fuelly, you’ll be able to see if you’re on the right track. If things aren’t looking so good, try some of the tips on for size.
