Online Fuel Cost Calculator to estimate the fuel cost of a trip based on fuel efficiency, distance, and gas price using various units of measurement.
Tips, information for using the Average Consumption and Miles Cost Calculator
1. How to calculate fuel efficiency (average consumption)?
The formula is relatively simple, divide the amount of gasoline consumed on a given road by the distance traveled and then multiply the result by 100. So if, for example, on a 430 miles road, the car consumed 5 gallons of gasoline, then the average fuel consumption (5/430) * 100 = 1.16 gal / 100 miles.
2. How do I calculate the cost per 1 mile of gasoline?
Once you have the fuel efficiency / average consumption, it is really very easy. Average consumption is the value of how many liters of gasoline a car travels per 100 km, so if you divide it by 100, you get how much the car consumes per miles. Just multiply that number by the price of 1 gallon of gasoline and you’ll get the result. Suppose the price of gas is 2.9 USD then the cost per miles is 0.03 USD / 1 mile.
