Miles Per Gallon Calculator
from miles and litres
Fuel economy in automobiles is the amount of fuel required to move the automobile over a given distance. While the fuel efficiency of petroleum engines has improved markedly in recent decades, this does not necessarily translate into fuel economy of cars, as people in developed countries tend to buy bigger and heavier cars.
To calculate the economy of the car we want to know the amount of fuel used per unit distance, for example, miles per gallon. The distance travelled per unit volume of fuel used is the miles per gallon (mpg). In this case, the higher the value, the more economic a vehicle is (the more distance it can travel with a certain volume of fuel).
