Save Gas with iPhone’s greenMeter

Share this on:

The greenMeter is a new iPhone application that computes a vehicle’s real-time fuel consumption, and displays the effects of acceleration, aerodynamic drag, and rolling resistance across the speed range, on easy-to-read graphs. The purpose is to increase a driver’s fuel economy and environmental awareness.

Before starting out, Just enter a few key points, like the price of fuel, your car’s drag co-efficient, and weather conditions, and the greenMeter will start its computations. Your car’s manual or the maker’s website is a good place to find some of the necessary data.

The greenMeter’s $5.99 price tag isn’t bad for a device that will pay for itself in no time with information designed to help anyone’s driving style become more eco-conscious. It’s available from the iTunes App Store.

    When we talked about extreme gas mileage, what we need to do is to study the basic techniques of Hypermiling, the most effective way thus changing the way we drive increases fuel economy by 37%.
