Fuel log

I needed a better way to keep track of my gas purchases and so, buoyed by the clever things done here, I took at shot at creating my own page.

I had kept it in my organizer but found it not as convenient as I'd hoped so I printed a stack, stapled them together and keep it in the glovebox for the end of the year.

I always use pencil to fill it in since sometimes the pens don't work in the cold. ;)

It seems odd to have multiple things there but I have multiple sources. I have the stock gauges in the car and I also have an "UltraGaugeII" http://www.ultra-gauge.com/ultragauge/ which reads data from the "On-Board Diagnostics Buss" (ODB) and displays it.

I also, occasionally use a GPS which can keep track of fuel use but I've not been traveling in a while so it's not been put into use that often.
