## Video: How To Calculate Gas Mileage

Many people nowadays own a car, but not many know how to calculate their fuel consumption. At current prices, this topic has become very relevant. A few examples of how fuel consumption can be calculated.

## Instructions

### Step 1

To calculate gas mileage, the easiest way is to install a trip computer in the car. The method is, of course, the simplest, but not very reliable. Modern systems provide information that is close enough to reliable data, but most devices continue to shamelessly lie.

### Step 2

To calculate the consumption of gasoline, I will just forgive you to install a trip computer in your car. The method, of course, is the simplest, but not very reliable. Modern systems provide information that is close enough to reliable data, but most devices continue to shamelessly and dishonestly lie.

### Step 3

You need to drive until the red light on the dashboard comes on, indicating that the gasoline is running out. Visit a gas station - here it is important that there is still enough gas to reach the nearest gas station. Fill the tank full and read the odometer reading. Next, you need to drive a hundred kilometers and go to the gas station again to fill the tank to the top. Now estimate the amount of fuel filled - this indicator will be your consumption per hundred kilometers. However, in practice, driving exactly one hundred kilometers and ending up at a gas station is quite problematic.

### Step 4

You can drive any number of kilometers and do the same manipulations, then calculate the flow using this proportion.

For example, you have driven 115 kilometers. At the gas station, 13 liters were poured. Now we make the calculation. # 115 km -13 liters, # 100 km - X liters. Thus: X = 1300/115 = 11.3 liters per 100 km.

Here is your consumption: 11, 3 liters per 100 km.

### Step 5

It is necessary to take such measurements more often. They will give you an idea of the technical condition of your vehicle. And once warned, it means protected.
