Default Apple to Android. What mpg apps?

So, as the title suggests, I have moved from and iPhone 5s to the new galaxy s6 edge. So far so good but there are a few apps I had on my iPhone that are not available on the Samsung.

My question is, can anyone suggest a good app to use for tracking mpg and mileage of my cars and bike?
Before I used a very good app called road trip. Type in details when I fill up and builds a data base with line graph showing mpg with average as well as mileage over time and related costs.
There are many such apps available, but any that come with good recommendations?

Thanks

I don't use anything like this bud, personal paranoid dictates to me that anything which uses my GPS to ascertain: location and speed is recording my data and could consequently be given to a 3rd party.

Last thing I want is for a speeding ticket with proof of: location, speed, and time just from some mpg app.

Unlikely I know, but you never know who is getting their mitts on your information.

The above is what too much ganja does to a person

Also, I saw you at Jfest but didn't want to interrupt you and the misses.

Hey Mike.
Should have come said hi at JFest. Great day, just a shame about the cold wind!

With regards to the app. Not after anything with real time data recording etc...
Simply, when I fill up with petrol, I record my mileage, litres and cost. App works out mpg. Can then plot over time how mpg goes up/down and avg as well as cost of petrol etc...

The app I had on my iphone also had capacity to put service items on and set reminders. gave a running total of how much car costs per mile / day / month / year with fuel, insurance, mot, service etc.... (Depending what info you put in).

I see, you could use something like "fuel buddy" or "fuelly".

I got sunburnt really badly sun burnt at jest, my arms are still red now! I suppose you South Africans are used to the heat

aCar. You can set up services reminders too, individual service item by individual service item. I run all my cars on it now.
