While you wait for us to test drive the Kiwi, you may have options for how to save gas by using your iPhone. Earth2Tech has found 5 iPhone applications that will make you feel a little cooler than using, say, a notepad and pen to track your mileage – and they’ll help you monitor and save on gas. Luckily, they cost about the same as a new notepad at the drug store.
AccuFuel ($0.99) - formerly MPG - tracks your mileage and gives you some fancy graphs and comparisons of each tank-full, based I’m sure more on your driving performance than your car’s performance. FuelGage($0.99) and GasHog do the same thing as AccuFuel but don’t have the pretty graphs. All three of these are just $0.99. There is also CarStat which is like FuelGage and GasHog but it is $1.99. Not the best deal. And if you don’t want to spend anything at all to save money on gas, you can grab WHERE (free), which tells you the gas prices from the nearest stations so you can find the cheapest one without wasting gas driving around doing your own comparisons.
Unless you’re super serious about saving gas with your phone, these apps are likely to be cool novelties for about two days, and then you’ll wonder why you spent $0.99 when you have a perfectly good notepad and pen in your glove box.
