Fuelly is a promising social networking site dedicated to tracking your fuel economy. The site allows you to create a profile and attach your vehicles to it. Each time you refuel your vehicle you can input the amount of gas you bought at what price and your odometer reading to Fuelly via your phone to its mobile web site. Fuelly then tracks your miles per gallons and allows comparison between your actual mileage and the EPA’s estimated mileage for your vehicle. You can also add friends and view the fuel economy for their vehicles.

I just added my second fuel up for my car and with it got my first in depth statistics. In addition to the miles per gallon statistics Fuelly also tracked how much I’ve spent in gas this year and how much money I’d save by getting my miles per gallon closer to the EPA estimates. It might not be Facebook but anything that makes me a more efficient gas consumer is a definite jewel!
