Miles left on the tank

Since Automatic can detect fuel-ups, fuel left and can learn the average MPG from user driving (or real-time MPG), it can probably predict the number of miles left on the tank. It'd be a very handy feature to have, especially for the owners of older cars which do not already show this on the dash.

It can be a part of real-time stats or an audible notification when only a certain number of miles are left.

Hi everyone. I have an exciting development regarding this idea: we’ve implemented the Fuel Level Warning feature :)

Users with supported cars can now see their fuel level right in the app, along with an estimate of the miles left in the tank based on your driving habits. You can read more about the feature here.

You may notice a discrepancy in the fuel level when comparing the app’s readout to your car’s dashboard. Please see this topic for more details as to why this is the case.
