Intelligent Import ability Do you keep all your economy data in a spreadsheet and don't want to exert the energy to manually enter it all into Mileage Wizard? No problem! Car Buddy now has an intelligent Import Wizard that imports csv (comma-separated values) files. You can quickly and easily create a csv from your current spreadsheet. There's no exact format expected and the Import Wizard detects the imported file's column count, names and allows you to map each of these columns to Car Buddy's fuel entries! If you currently have Mileage Wizard data, you can import that information as well. You can choose to import a complete vehicle or just its fuel entries.
