I've been using automatic for over 1 year. The app has improved and received new features but there have been no changes that I can remember to the actual data that is captured. For me this is the main purpose of the device.

Please add a setting per car for the grade of gas used, regular mid, high. I would be very surprised if the price source didn't already have that data just waiting for you to consume. I see a request to add manual prices as planned but adding a grade setting seems much simpler to implement (less UX, etc.).

Hello Automatic users! I’m happy to announce that you now have the ability to select a preferred fuel grade for determining the trip costs calculated by the app. Upon updating to v2.7+ of the iOS app or  v1.7+ of the Android app, you should receive a prompt informing you that the feature is now available. You can change this setting at a later time by navigating to Settings → Your car’s profile and tapping on the “Fuel Grade” link.  To learn more about this functionality, please see this FAQ.
