Import of manually edited csv

I am trying to correct some incorrect data of Fuelio. For example, the location (longitude/latitude) of an entry is wrong (because I entered it later). So one of the things I tried is:
- Export CSV locally on the phone
- Edit CSV, change only longitude/latitude
- Import CSV
The changes do not seem to be imported, the old position is still there.
Also something else: in the CSV there is a field called "City" with value "GPS". How is this populated? Can I change it to something real? (while editing the file as mentioned before, I tried to change it as well, but again nothing seems to be imported).
Is there something different I should be doing? Is Fuelio simply ignoring entries with same date/km when importing?

What about other data. It is importing? Import creates new vehicle. Maybe you are checking the old vehicle?
I don't know if you know. No need to use CSV for changing location. You can simply edit item - click on Location and you can set location from google maps, search field etc.
Thanks for the information.
So it seems it was my mistake: importing works fine; and indeed it created (each time) a new car. But since there was absolutely no notification about what was going on, I could not imagine it.
So there should probably be some notification about a new car being created after importing CSV -- and also possible a new name for the imported car if another with the same name exists (probably numbered "(2)", "(3)", etc.)
What's more, before trying import-export CSV I was trying the following:
In this case, I believe that no new car is created, and changed data did not show up.
[Also, I had not noticed about the ability to change the location, which also works fine.]
Yes. You are right.
Maybe I need to add info about it.
Bascically - import (manual) will always create new vehicle but - Send All - Download All is some kind of sync. It will overwrite your data.
