Not bad for this month, considering it's planting season. Only some minor trailer hauling, some cutting tracks and usually a half ton to ton of seed under the topper.

Mostly travel miles to farm and back and between fields. May has been a bad month in all other aspects besides cost fuel in the pickup.

If I remember correctly, it's called fillup. Easy app to use and gives lots of data and breakdown. Makes it work well for what I need, fuelly was miserable to use.

I’ll have to look into that, I’ve been using Fuelly it does the job but I’m not impressed... I’ve been averaging 19-21empty according to the app

I use Fuelly as well, can’t really complain, it does the job.

The only Fill-up app I see in iOS is fill-up tracker. Can’t imagine it’s the same, fuelly is way better.

The android app is kind of miserable on fuelly, that might be why it seems alright on iOS

My pen and log book have never failed me.
I just started using an app as I've been using pen and paper for 13 years. It is more convenient to log business miles with so I can go back and look at mileage on certain dates. It definitely is nice having graphics and data to use to trend expenses.

I’ve been using fuelly since you had to text message the info to their phone number before I had a smart phone lol... My biggest complaint with fuelly is you can’t get month by month totals. You can filter them by month in you entries but still have to total by hand..

Fuelly beats writing milage on the back of receipts and stuffing them in an envelope, did that for years.. it lets you track maintenance also.

Based on the trucks display, my 2017 2500 Mega was averging around 17 to 18 MPG mixed city/highway. This was pretty consistent for the first 2 years I owned her.

A couple months ago I did my first tire change from the stock Firestone's to a little beefier Nito Terra Grappler G2 LT295/60R20. I immediately saw my average mileage drop to about 15.5 - 15.9. Is this typical with such a slight tire size change?

Also, in the last couple of weeks I've notice another decrease and am now averaging around 14.5 - 14.9.

I read on an earlier post of this thread that gas quality might make a difference. I recently started filling up at a gas station with diesel around 50 cents per gallon cheaper (that's a big difference in California with our stupid gas prices). Do you guys think this could be a lower quality fuel and causing the additional decrease?

How are you calculating Mileage with your new tire size to compare?

Actually that is a good point I didn't even think about. I guess my speedo is probably off a bit now too.

I was still going by the mileage readout on the display. Is there some way to re-calibrate everything?

There is a program called alfaOBD that you can use to change the tire size. You'll need the program (~$50) and a OBD bluetooth adapter (~$70)

Info on how to use it here..

FYI, you might want to try and hand calculate your mileage. My 2016 mega is anywhere from 1.5-3 mpg high on the display.

Hello, could you please let me know what’s the app. you use to track mpg? Thanks
I use an app called fillup on android. July obviously only has one fillup, the next tank won't be as good. Bought a new house so been hauling a trailer mostly.
