I have posted a link to My Fuelly (Fill Up Reports) on other topics for this FORUM.

Thought it might be best to have a separate Topic for all that have a Fuelly to post their link.

Here is my Fuelly Link (history for 3458 miles) as of 05-10-2017.

Fuelly - Track and Compare your MPG

PS: I guess it will open for anyone clicking on it (it does for me).

I added anther fill up at 4048 miles --- 520 mile at 9.802 gallon = 53.05 MPG. That was 95 miles at our usual (35 to 50 MPH county roads and some in town) then 425 miles of Hwy going to Charlotte, NC from home and back to Newport, TN where I filled up.

I think with fuelly you can always put a link into your forum signature that maintains an updated log of what you have on there. Makes life much easier for other people to view your stats.

I had hoped this topic would result in other NIRO Owners posting there Fuelly Link for comparison (not just mine). ;)

I did click the link to see if my last Fill-Up was included. Apparently it was using last Fill Up as it is showing 3978 tracked miles.

Fill Up was at 4025 miles for 520 miles and 9.802 gallon used. Difference in Fuelly 3978 and my 4025 I guess do to the first fill up being at Dealer Expense (think around like 61 miles).

PS: It is more interesting to see each fill up in a table with the notes I added, but I do not know how to display that with a Link (I see it after I enter a new fill up).

It is an EX Model NIRO with Tech Pkg (sunroof model).

I added another fill up on 06-05-2017 at 4562 miles to my Fuelly record (514 miles for fill up of 10 gallon = 51.4 MPG)

Pump cut off at 9.6 gallon, I pumped an extra 0.4 gallon. I think pretty full tank as car was also sloped away from the pump.

Paul- I am on Fuelly, under name "Landsail". It's nice to be able to check the average of a lot of drivers and miles. What I don't like is the phone "app". It's not really an app, just a downloaded form. I couldn't even move it enough to enter the data, and it can't be uploaded anyway. So I'm still writing data on receipt, and enter it later at website. This caused me to mess up once, I entered odo mileage when I got home, instead of mileage at fillup. It's noted in note section.
I'd like to use a site that you can enter data from phone, but most have to much stuff for business miles, maintenance, etc., which I don't need. So Fuelly works well to get a real world average. So far after 2k+ miles I am averaging 54+ miles. Not to shabby.

I have not tried the phone APP. I just write things down on the receipt (miles on car) and plug it in from computer using the web site, same as you said you have been doing.

PS: I don't use the phone much because I went to a Consumer Cellular (AARP Discount) plan to save like $25 a month (CC runs $29 something including taxes).

Limit Phone to 250 minutes, Data to 500 MB, and TXT unlimited. Main web use is weather checks cause I ride two wheelers. So far, never used 1/2 of the limits and if you run over they just bump you up to the next plan ($5 more). You do have to call them to drop back to the original plan.

I keep an eye on it and set limit on data to where they would cut me off if get over 450 MB.

I added another fill up to Fuelly record on 08-04-2017 at 6140 miles (513 miles for fill up of 10.00 gallon = 51.3 MPG)

Pump cut off once at 9.7x and I thought get it to even 10 gallon (easy compute of MPG). I think pretty full tank as car was also sloped away from the pump.

I added another fill up to Fuelly record on 08-15-2017 at 6622 miles (482 miles for fill up of 8.572 gallon = 56.2 MPG)

Seems high compared to history MPG (history is 51 + Mpg). Perhaps not filled good, but I hit the trigger a few extra times. See what next fill-up brings?

I added another fill up to Fuelly record on 08-30-2017 at 7012 miles (390 miles for fill up of 8..162 gallon = 47.8 MPG)

Seems low compared to history MPG (History is 51 + Mpg).

I think error on last fill-up (not good and full as had 56 + MPG on that one which was higher than average). Perhaps not filled good last time which made that MPG high and this one low. Don't know, I hit the trigger a few extra times.

I added another fill up to Fuelly record on 09-18-2017 at 7498 miles (486 miles for fill up of 9.58 gallon = 50.7MPG)

Back closer to overall average after the previous two fill ups (one was high at around 56MPG and one was low MPG at around 48MPG). I Think maybe did not get tank full on the one that shows high, so the next one showed low.

PS: EX Model with Tech Pkg Option (one with sunroof).

I added another fill up to Fuelly record on 10-11-2017 at 8020 miles (522 miles for fill up of 10.044 gallon = 51.97MPG). About equal overall average of 52.1MPG

Does mileage improve as engine is broken in? Just for fun, I'd like to equal or beat Paulrides mileage. However, right now, the car is running a lot without putting any miles on it as I am finding not much goes on unless the engine is running. Other than the record from LA to NYC, what is the best a Niro has done over any distance, say of 100 or more miles?

I don't think it will necessarily improve once the car is broken in, most based on how heavy footed you are I think.

Probably this:
Earlier this year, Gerdes was contracted by Kia perform his hypermiling magic with the new Niro on a drive from Los Angeles to New York City. Gerdes, his co-driver Robert Winger, and the Niro Hybrid achieved an average consumption of 76.6 miles per gallon.

I added another fill up to FULLY record on 11-01-17 at 8516 miles (416 miles for fill up of 9.386 gallon = 52.8MPG). A little better than overall average of 52.3MPG (confusing - I see the FUELLY Banner below says 51.6MPG average). OH WELL, what's a few 10ths among friends?

PS: EX Model with Tech Pkg Option (one with sunroof). A sunroof that I seldom ever use - a waste of money, wonder why they include such in a Tech Pkg?

I added another fill up to FULLY record on 11-15-17 at 9024 miles (508 miles for fill up of 10.158 gallons = 50MPG). A little less than overall average of 51.5MPG per FUELLY Banner below.
