In September 2007 we bought a vehicle: a 2007 Chevy Cobalt SS.  Since that date, I have been recording data from each re-fuelling in order to get an idea of the vehicle’s performance, fuel economy, etc.  So far I’ve been using OpenOffice.org Calc (spreadsheet) to determine some basic statistics.  I would like to get some more substantial information, though.  I figure this can be achieved using the free statistical package, R.

The purpose of these pages and posts, then, is to document what I’m doing, spread my limited knowledge/expertise, and get ideas from the community.  So please feel free to send me an email or submit a comment if you have an idea or question about what I’m doing or have done.
