By default, Automatic calculates trip costs based on regular unleaded gasoline, but you can designate a preferred fuel grade for your vehicle.

In the Pro app you can edit the price per gallon that you actually paid, which can include any discounts you received that would not be reflected in the database we use that provides up to date fuel prices nationwide.

In the original app, you can designate your preferred fuel grade only. Please see this FAQ for instructions on how to change the fuel grade setting.

To understand how we get the price of gas and calculate it, please see this other FAQ topic.
