Five iPhone apps to help save gas

Some of my earliest automotive memories of are sitting in the passenger seat next to my dad, scrutinizing the spiral notebook that he always kept in the glove compartment of whatever used Volvo had entered our garage. He’s kept track of repair jobs, the odometer, fillups, fuel costs and mileage over the decades. At an early age, it helped me understand how to figure out what a car costs to operate. These days, such data can help efforts to cut total driving mileage and/or to improve your mileage through hypermiling practices. Now the iPhone help make this a bit easier and prettier — thanks to handsome graphing — thanks to a handful of new applets available at the the iStore, for as little as 99 cents.
