What is Good Gas Mileage?

While you’re shopping for a new or certified pre-owned vehicle, you might be curious to knowi8 what “good” gas mileage is. Well, there’s not a set standard, but if you’re shopping for an SUV you can expect to have lower gas mileage ratings than a compact car or sedan. Now, if you choose a compact gas-powered or gas-electric hybrid to get you through McCook, these will always be the most fuel efficient option.

Gas Mileage Calculator

It is simple to learn how to calculate gas mileage, here is how you can do it:

  1. Fill your gas tank fully and reset your trip odometer or write down the exact mileage before you refuel. Accurately record the amount of gas your tank can hold by checking your owner’s manual.
  2. Continue your normal driving habits around Gothenburg, but not if you accelerate or slow down drastically, your “typical” calculated gas mileage can be very different.
  3. Refuel your tank and write down your mileage. However, if you wait to refill your tank then your gas mileage calculation will be more accurate due to a longer history of driving conditions.
  4. So here’s how to calculate gas mileage: Simply divide the number of miles you’ve traveled by the number of gallons of gas your vehicle took to refill. Miles driven divided by gallons of gas used.
  5. Forgot to check how many gallons it took to fill your cat tank? You can calculate it by going where your tank was refilled (i.e. ¼, ½, or ¾) ,then divide the total tank capacity. Then, divide miles driven by that estimation.
