Gas vs Diesel?

For those who are contemplating either a gas or diesel bus, here's a quick calculator. It will also tell fuel cost for miles when planning a trip. Please only change the green boxes. I think I have made it so that is all you can change but, I'm not sure.

I can get the green boxes to light up with a blue? trace but I can't change the info in the box--I'm probably missing something. Jack

This should work, It should be open to anyone. Just don't enter anything but into green boxes. I can't figure out how to lock things so it's only usable.

If anyone wants the spreadsheet file I can give it to you in exxel(expensive) or open office(free) formats.

I've added a cost comparison between MPG and price per gallon. Notice that .1 MPG changes cost more than $0.01. Just for fun make miles something like 100,000 to see the difference it makes to a long haul truck driver.

Again PLEASE ONLY CHANGE NUMBERS IN GREEN BOXES
