How to Figure Out Your Car’s MPG (Miles per Gallon)









If you know how to do basic mathematics, then figuring out your MPG is going to be a breeze. Just a couple of easy steps to follow:

Step 1

Next time you go to the gas station and fill up your car with gas, reset your odometer to zero.

Step 2

Don’t to anything different, than when you normally drive.

Step 3

The next time you go to the gas station, write down how many miles you drove since the last time you filled up.

Step 4

Fill up your car and write down how many gallons of gas your car took.

Step 5

To find out your car’s MPG, divide the miles you drove by the number of gallons of gas you used. Using this method, I divide the miles I drove by the gallons of gas I used,

(320 miles x 16 gallons) to get my gas mileage, (20 mpg).


Maybe, it’s time for a more fuel efficient car?


It’s a pretty simple formula to learn,  once you do it a few times. So give it a try and find out how many miles per gallon your car gets?


You just might trade it in for a hybrid.
