Litres? Kilometers? Shouldn't that be gallons and miles? =P
I usually do this with my bone-encrusted fleshy neural net, but it would
be a fun little plugin to write - for somebody else. If it could save
the date and parameters of each entry in a log, and then show a bar
chart of fuel consumption versus time, it'd be even nicer. Maybe you
could tell when it was time for that next tune-up...
