You can track non-fuel expenses using the GloveBox app, such as maintenance and servicing, breakdown cover and insurance. GloveBox tracks expenses in a similar way to how it tracks the cost of your fuel - you can see up to date statistics, a pie chart breaking down your expenditure by category, as well as a log of all your non-fuel expenditure.
Using the GloveBox app to keep track of how much you spend on your car can help you to budget and save money.
Use the button on the app's home screen to add a new expense to GloveBox. You'll be prompted for details about the expense, but not all fields are required. Make sure you select the right category when you create an expense so that GloveBox can create more accurate statistics and display a pie chart that breaks down your expenditure in each category.
Give each expense a meaningful title, such as "Full service and oil change" or "Breakdown cover renewal". You can optionally add notes to each expense entry if more information would be useful, the notes are displayed underneath each expense when you view the expense log in the app.
You can optionally enter an odometer mileage with each expense entry. If you enter a mileage with an expense or a fuel log entry your "per mile" statistics are updated. The odometer readings will also be used to evaluate reminders if any are due. An odometer mileage is not required for expenses, only when adding fuel.
When you add a new expense the car's statistics need to be recalculated, which can sometimes take a few seconds.
You can delete expenses the same way you can delete fuel log entries. From a car's detail screen tap "Expense log", then tap on a log entry. You'll be prompted to make sure you definitely want to delete the expense you selected.
When you delete an expense the car's statistics need to be recalculated, which can sometimes take a few seconds.
Your non-fuel expenditure is included in the "total cost" statistics (such as per mile, 30 days etc), which are displayed on a car's detail screen. From here you can also access statistics specific to your non-fuel expenses. From the statistics screen you can access a pie chart showing your expenditure by category for the past 12 moths.
From a car's detail screen you can also view the expense log, which is a list of all the expenditure that you and other drivers have entered for the car.
