Thank you for adding to our database!

Odometer mileage and amount of gas at each fill up is needed to calculate MPG.

Scan or photograph your gas logs or receipts (black out any personal info) and send the images as attachments to the OOCC email  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it Some readers find it convenient to use their cell phone cameras to take a picture of the odometer and the final readout on the gas pump once the fill-up is complete. With a date on the image, its easy to match the pump and odometer readings. Send the pictures in and OOCC can calculate the MPG for you.

Word documents are also welcome for those who are motivated to make up their own tables. A photo or two of the car is a nice addition to the story. License plate numbers will be removed by OOCC to protect your privacy.

The basic information required is year and model of car and engine type. Carburetor (or fuel injection), exhaust, transmission, axle ratio and tire size are nice to know, too.  Driving conditions (climate, speed, loads) help readers comparing the variables.
