How to calculate fuel consumption.

< /p>

To calculate fuel consumption per 100 km, you need to do a few simple manipulations. In order to correctly calculate fuel consumption per 100 km, you do not even need an on-board computer, informs Ukr.Media.

Most modern cars have a built-in computer that provides the driver with a lot of data, including fuel consumption per 100 km. If your car does not have a similar function, then you can calculate the fuel consumption yourself.

If you are a prudent person, then in order to correctly calculate the costs for car maintenance, you need to know how to correctly calculate the fuel consumption. The easiest way is the calculator of fuel consumption per 100 km. The corresponding mini-programs are available on a huge number of sites.

At the same time, if there is no Internet at hand, then you can easily calculate the fuel consumption yourself. Such a skill will not be superfluous, especially if you consider that the manufacturer's data on fuel consumption in a car are always slightly underestimated.

How to calculate fuel consumption

To calculate fuel consumption, first of all, you need to fill up a full tank of gasoline or diesel, as well as reset the daily mileage. Now it remains only to wait, or to be more precise, to drive a few hundred kilometers for the car to show its real appetites.

When you drive a few hundred kilometers, you need to go to the gas station again and fill a full tank. At this stage, we need to remember how much fuel we filled the second time and how many kilometers were on the daily odometer (the distance the car traveled between two gas stations).

How to calculate fuel consumption per 100 km

To get objective results, you should drive in your usual manner and do not try to use an economical driving style, if it is not inherent to you as a driver. Ideally, in the process of driving between two gas stations, you drive both in the city and on the highway to get a real average consumption.

To calculate the fuel consumption of a car, you need to divide the fuel consumed by the distance traveled, and the number which you get, you need to multiply by 100. If the car used 28 liters of gasoline for 200 kilometers of road, then the calculations will look like this: 28/200 x 100 = 14 l/100 km.

How to calculate fuel consumption per km

There are situations when you need to calculate fuel consumption per 1 km. Relatively accurate calculations can only be provided by the car's on-board computer. If the car does not have such a function, then there is only one option – to use the formula for calculating fuel consumption per 1 km.

In order to find out how much fuel a car consumes per 1 kilometer, you need to divide the consumption by l/100km per 100. Thus, if our car consumes 14 liters of gasoline per 100 km, then the car will consume 0.14 liters of gasoline or 140 milliliters per 1 km.
