E85Tracker – an iPhone app for Flex Fuel Vehicle drivers
Chicago, Illinois – Independent developer, Chenguang Wang is pleased to announce E85Tracker, an app designed for flexible fuel vehicle drivers. It provides users a platform to manage their fuel consumption and to balance the goal between cost saving and emission reduction.
After a user signs in, the E85Tracker automatically locates the user’s current location, maps the nearest E85 stations, and calculate the distance from each E85 station. Alternatively, user can also search nearby gas stations using E85Tracker.
For each vehicle, user can input fill-up information such as E85 and gas prices at the chosen station, and keep track of the key fuel consumption parameters in different ways (overview, graphs or lists):
* E85 vs gas costs (in terms of $/mile)
* E85 vs gas emissions (in terms of CO2 lbs/mile)
These parameters are more informative than price/gallon and MPG (miles/gallon) in fuel choice decision making. E85Tracker also allows all this data to be exported and sent by e-mail directly from user’s device either as a .CSV file (comma separated values, which can be opened and processed by Excel or any other spreadsheet program) or as a .PDF file, so that user can generate his/her own personalized statistics.
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 7.0 or later
* 1.8 MB
Pricing and Availability:
E85Tracker 1.0 is free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Utilities category. The game has no inserted advertisement.
