Free GoSee TravelSmart membership has many practical benefits. Now a new touring aid has been added. It is a spread-sheet fuel calculator.
The spread-sheet is linked to the popular GoSee Fuel Calculator (just click TravelSmart Good Stuff option on the left of the Home Page).
It is designed to give TravelSmart Club members the ability to use the speadsheet over 10 fills. GoSee believes this gives a better range for a running average of fuel performance.
With a 10 fill spread calculation headwinds, hills, road surface, hot weather, different drivers and varied loads and weights are better covered in producing an actual average outcome.
Free membership of GoSee TravelSmart Club extends the key benefits which clicked the idea of free touring websites to assist travellers in Australia and New Zealand and the caravanning industry into action five years ago.
