Free membership for GoSee TravelSmart Club members is a prize in itself.
Free GoSee TravelSmart membership has many practical benefits like the spread-sheet fuel calculator.
The Excel Fuel Usage Calculator and Log Sheet is linked to the popular GoSee Fuel Calculator (members just click TravelSmart Good Stuff option on the left of the Home Page and click Fuel Use Calculator).
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.
The GoSee Fuel Calculator will give accurate fuel consumption. Just enter litres of fuel used and the kilometers covered and click for litres used per 100km. The answer also comes in kilometers per litre and miles per gallon for those with longer memories.
