Fuelly's response: Thanks for the suggestion. We don't track vehicles past the model level and that's a blanket rule across all vehicles. There are
instances like this where it might be nice to track trim levels, but
with our small staff we need to have rules to keep things manageable.
Many people include details like this in the vehicle name. So
sometimes you can spot differences that way.
It's an even bigger deal with many other models where they throw in hybrids and diesels with the base gas versions. I was trying to compare the focus to the jetta but couldn't because of all the TDI's.
