Plans for DEF category?

Are there any plans for adding DEF fuel ups in the same screen as diesel fills? Adding the two totals together is one possibility but since they are two independent systems, if one starts to burn more, then it would be hard to keep track of. Since DEF impacts the cost per mile of the truck than I think it is important to have on the same screen.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Josh,

You are exactly correct this is something that we need to account for in FuelGauges. We have it on our list and being worked into our programming schedule.

Thanks for posting.

ok, this addition of a DEF section has been talked about for over 3 years and yet still no addition to the site. Do you me to tell us Aaron that you have been toooo busy to make this happen? I find that hard to believe. What is the hold up?

by

As much as it pains me to admit, YES other projects have taken on a more important role in my company. I understand that it's needed sorely, however when you're looking at what will benefit both user and company the most, still a DEF feature isn't at the top. I understand how most would not know what it takes to add a feature like that to the website, iOS and Android but believe me when I say a lot. The time and money that would need to be dedicated to a free feature on a free program is hard to swallow.

I'm not making excuses, just sharing where I'm at on the topic.

I totally get it but only the first 7 days are Free, the rest is $19.00 a month. Also where would you add things like oil, washer fluid, coolant , ECT? The def could be added there and still account for an overall expense.

I apologize, I assumed you were speaking of FuelGauges. FuelGauges is FREE all the time. ProfitGauges, which you can add DEF within that program, does cost money, yes you are correct.

I never thought of adding DEF as an option under the Maintenance in FuelGauges. That would be an easy addition. So easy that I just added it. We have checks and balances in our system to ensure that I don't screw up so it may take 24 hours to update before everything will show up.

I still think it's important to have a DEF tracking system to track it's use like MPG but for now at least the expense will be added into FG and you can easily sync that with ProfitGauges if needed.

Great thinking REEFER MADNESS.

Thank you - Aaron

It's not just a good idea, it's an inexcusable oversight. It doesn't matter what Kevin thinks about it; DEF isn't going away anytime soon.

Has nothing to do with what Kevin wants. It's on what features I feel are most important. As of right now I have other projects and features that are more important. This is not saying that we'll never add it. I'd love it for my own truck since I track my fuel mileage on FG as well and have to add that crappy DEF.

Still sounds like a personal issue

Haha, yeah basically. I have lots of those. Darn things jump up out of no where.
