e-nenpi allows users to input their distance traveled and fuel amounts from their mobile phones, sharing and comparing results with over 400,000 other users. This service makes ecology and economizing fun, with a menu that can automatically track change periods for engine oil and other parts, and letting users compare their gas mileage and CO2 emissions with other users across the country.
Every month, e-nenpi collects fuel data from tens of thousands of users across the country to present statistics in ways that were never possible before, like our “Real-time Gasoline Prices” and “e-nenpi Ranking” that show gas mileage by car model. And, we’ve just started “Car Life Navigator (β)”, that puts e-nenpi onto home and work computers. And we’ve got more great things coming in the future.
