Matt Haughey on Sharing Gas Mileage Data

From the Bay Area QS Show&Tell group: Matt Haughey from Fuelly talks about tracking, sharing, and comparing gas mileage data. He tells the story of his efforts to move from 18 to 20 mpg – it required a great amount of concentration, and only ended up saving him $6. Watch the video below to hear what Matt has learned from running Fuelly. He has good advice for entrepreneurs and gas guzzlers alike.

    Hi, very interesting video. Thanks for sharing.
    As I dig deeper in self-tracking, I find it an even more interesting subject.
    As a user, I see one big barrier to its democratization. Personal data are stored in silos.
    My Health data are stored on CureTogether (just an example ;-) ), Energy data are stored elsewhere, Mileage data on Fueller, and so on.
    So if I want to get the most of these data sources I have to go through a painful process: data export, data import to a new application, no realtime updates …
    To sum this process up, I personally would try to put all these data on an Excel spreadsheet. Excel is a very powerful tool but not designed for the mass market ;-)
    Do you know any service (web application) that would allow me to process data from different sources (a least a visualization tool)? That would be really timesaving( a daytum-like?).
    RSS readers do it for RSS feeds. There must be an as easy way to do it for these personal data, isn’t it ?
    Do you agree with my analysis ?
    Thanks in advance.

    I meant not Fueller.
    Sorry for the mistype.
