4 step guide to calculating your fuel consumption

Getting the most for your money while driving can be difficult. However, efficient practices can help you. Find out how to calculate your fuel consumption in the blog below.

The AA provides some great advice here, as well as a comprehensive guide to calculate your average fuel consumption, which includes the following steps:

1. Fill the tank and record the mileage.
2. Keep a record of any fuel purchases.
3. Ideally go back to the same pump at the same garage you first filled the car and fill the tank again to the same level.
4. Now divide the total mileage since the first fill by the total number of litres used and then multiply by 4.546 to get miles per gallon (mpg). For example if you've covered 1,000 miles and used 101 litres of fuel, your average mpg = (1000/101) x 4.546 = 45mpg.
