You can invite a friend to join Automotobook. Enter his email address in the box, and click "Send Invitation". An email will be sent to the entered email address, inviting your friend to this site, along with a link to your garage.

How can I search for a vehicle?

You must be a registered user to use the quick search form. Just enter in the search box, what you are looking for. You can also use the advanced search option, which will enable you to search more efficiently, using specific criteria.

Why does my search return no results?

Either nothing matched our database or you enter something wrong. Check your spelling.

How do I search for users?

In the same way you search for vehicles. Enter the user's username, city or country in the search box. You can also search by first or last name, but only if these have been provided by the user. You can also use the advanced search option, which will enable you to search more efficiently, using specific criteria.

What's with the measurement units?

Automotobook is international. Different countries use different measuring systems. We decided that it would be better, if the user could choose which measuring system to use. Guests can only view data in PS for power, Nm for torque and cc for displacement. Once you login, you can change everything in the "Settings" page and the data will be converted automatically. FYI, the conversion factors are:

1 Kw=1.36 PS=1.34 BHP

1 Nm=0.74 ft-lbs

1 cc=0.06 cu.inch

Why do I see odd values (ex. 1942.99 cc)

That's because of the conversion between units. If a user has entered his engine displacement in cu. in. and you choose to see it in cc, the result may seem a little odd. We round results to 2 decimal digits.

What are the Partial Fillup and Missed Fillup boxes in the Fuel Book?

You tick partial fillup when you have not filled your tank to the top. This option will be used later to calculate more accurate fuel statistics.

You tick missed fillup when you have forgotten to enter one or more fillups in your fuel book. This option will be used later to calculate more accurate fuel statistics.

What are the vehicle's achievements?

When a vehicle reaches one of the predefined rules, it gets an achievement. The rules, for the time being, are the views, the rating, the hotness and the subscribers. We plan to include more achievements in the future.

What is the hot page?

In the hot page you can find all the vehicles that made it to the weekly featured vehicle mail. These vehicles are selected randomly according to their views, rating, photos and general interest by the users.

What is the Mailbox?

The Mailbox is not an actual mailbox! It is just a reference to the emails that you have exchanged with other automotobook users. Deleting an email in the Mailbox does NOT mean that the actual email is deleted in your real email client. Deleting an email in your 'received' section, does NOT delete the equivalent email on the other user's 'sent' section and vice-versa.

I want to make a suggestion!

You can use the form in Contact us to make any suggestion to us. We are trying to keep this site as simple and also as entertaining and educational as possible! We will carefully consider any suggestion that you will make.

I want to delete my account.

Although we do not see a reason for such a terrible mistake, you can simply ask us to do it by sending an email to info@automotobook.com using the email adress you provided when activating your account.

 

Thank you for using Automotobook!
