Default CredR: Mileage calculation for used bikes

Nowadays you have an app for everything! Considering that some refurbishing on a used bike can make it look good as new, but the fuel efficiency is still a hazy figure. CredR has launched an inspection tool for bikes named "Mileage Metre"

The inspection tool is basically a capacitance-based fuel sensor which is linked to the bike's fuel tank. This senses the amount of fuel which is supplied which is combined with the distance covered by the bike. The distance is recorded in terms of wheel rotations, and both the readings obtained are sent through a wireless network. The data obtained is combined in an android application to calculate the fuel efficiency.

Talking about the tolerance values, the device can process the calculation with difference of 1 milliliter of fuel and distance of 20 centimeters. Being connected through a wireless network, there aren't any tedious or heavy installations.

Default Re: CredR: Mileage calculation for used bikes


Is this a product that is actually available? Or something one that is being preceded by a premature press release?

Questions I have:

1) The capacitive sensor sounds like one that will be a level sensor inside the fuel tank. How do they account for tilt on a 2-wheeler? As well as the cross sectional area of the tank not being the same - leading to a non-linear drop of fuel level?

2) Was going to guess that the wheel sensor was a hall-effect sensor (like you find on bicycle speedometers). Though a 20 cm accuracy level indicates otherwise. Probably some sort of rotary-disc/slot sensor? Which brings me to my 3rd question...

3) How does this thing look? How well does it integrate with the bike (add-ons on the tank & wheel)? Is it a temporary contraption or a permanent fixture?

Given that it's an inspection tool, does this mean the CredR guys will install it, ride the bike, and then get a reading? Wouldn't this get tedious, having to ride every bike that's listed on sale for several kms to get an accurate reading.

The above aside, maybe there's more potential for this setup - as Indians love to know the fuel efficiency they are getting, and Indian bikes do not really offer the ability to do so...
