SciLor's Fuel Blaster v0.9.1.4

SciLor's Fuel Blaster vs. GasMate

Since Iam 18 and have a car I decided to calculate the consumption of my car. As a programmer I thought of creating a tool to do this:

Here is it:
Everytime you refill your fuel-tank you just type in the needed data into the program. It Show for every Statistik a number for total, average, min, max. AND a graph
Also you will find a nice csv import/export function
Have multiple cars? try it

SciLor's Fuel Blaster
                           .. :v
                          c:  .X
                           QM  AM
                           9M  zM
                           6M  AM
                           2M  2MX#MM@1.

You will need .NET CF 3.5 and SQL Server CE 3.5 (Should be included, SQL-Pack on FuelBlasters WebSite) Links at the Bottom

This is a little program for tracking your fuel consumption.
It has got a "touch-friendly" interface so you are able to use it without your stylus.

CSV import Howto:
A semicolon(";") seperated "export.csv" in the SciLor's Fuel Blaster directory will be needed.
Following coloumns are needed:
	"kilometers" - trip kilometers (relative) - ex. "656,6"
	"fuelamount" - refilled gas - ex. "48,98"
	"priceamount" - money payed for the refill - ex. "64,11"
	"priceperliter" - price you payed per fuelunit - ex. "1,309"
	"timeprint" - timeprint - ex. "30.06.2009 14:09" or "2009-30-06 14:09"
All other coloums will be ignored!

-Feature: Adding fuelprice in total price not in price per liter
-Feature: Notes feature for each entry
-Enhancement: More Skinning (ex. the arrows)
-Enhancement: Edit entry
-Enhancement: Changable Date/Time

Thank you for your posts
It is nice to know that's useful

I am open for some design ideas Iam a programmer not a designer.
I think I found a fix for a landscape problem so I hope it is fixed in the next version.
Also I will improve the scrolling performance, it is so slow on my kaiser

allowing changing of metrics would be good. Like from pounds to Dollar symbols, switch between km/miles

although it's just a label it does make it nicer

Very interesting application.
Up to now I used to write down all those informations on a sheet of paper in order to tranfer it to a spreadsheet.

I managed increasing the fps of the scroller, now it is fluid on my kaiser
Landscape problems are mainly gone.

I think first I will just create a config file, where you can change the texts

Would a CSV Export or something similar be useful?

What is the problem? can't you install the cab? or do you get a error when you start it?
