Today I want to highlight an interesting new app, Jerrycan for iPhone by Pavlo Grozian which lets you track your fuel consumption and fuel expenses. Unlike most mileage-tracker apps in the App Store, Jerrycan shows you how individual driving impacts the ecology with wealth of information at your fingertips including overconsumption peaks, pollution emission, fuel waste and driving efficiency.

And with individual tips and guides, Jerrycan can teach you to drive wisely, waste less fuel and improve your fuel­ efficiency.

The app was designed to track your car actual fuel consumption, miles-per-gallon and mileage for city and motorway, but it’s much more than a simple tracker: Jerrycan acts as your personal coach that provides valuable advice on fuel-efficient driving.

“We believe that it’s possible to reduce fuel waste by letting people know how much fuel their car actually consumes and show a real impact on the ecology,” I’m told.

Jerrycan collects various data from external sources, such as gas station ratings, helping drivers select the best gas station with high-­quality petrol, thus cutting their fuel expenses and reducing the impact on the environment.

The app can optionally remind you to enter fill-up details every time you come to a gas station to fill up the tank. These kinds of apps usually prompt you to enter a bunch of numbers, which can be really tedious. With Jerrycan, intuitive sliders help you enter fill-up details and other data without needing to type out a bunch of numbers.

Your car’s odometer already tracks your mileage, why would you need an app for that?

Well, if you’re thinking about collecting that data over the course of months to compare later, and add other factors, you should consider taking Jerrycan for a spin—especially if you’re curious how many trees your driving has saved and how much oil you have wasted because tank-to-tank monitoring is not enough for fuel-efficient driving.

    I don’t see anything about connecting to an OBD dongle. If it did that, I’d be really interested.

    • Jerrycan

      OBD support will be soon, the first in list is Automatic.

    Waste of money, no instructions, no reply from the email system to ask a question via the app. I still don’t know whether I put the slider to when the fuel level is before I fill up or after I fill up when I add a new input. I wish I could get a refund.
