Understanding MPG

The benefits of using MPG
over liters per hundred,
to monitor fuel economy.




What is MPG


MPG Stands for Miles per
Gallon, using the Imperial
Measurement system.

A Vehicle will go many miles
on one gallon of gasoline.
MPG or miles per gallon
gives us a window into
viewing how well a vehicle
performs relating to fuel
economy.

Miles per gallon was the
standard fuel measurement,
then the country went
metric.

Now a liter is the standard
fuel measurement.

A liter is much smaller
than an Imperial gallon,
it takes 4.546 liters to
make one Imperial gallon.

The comparison between
gallons and liters, would
be like; how many
kilometers to the liter.

This expression never caught
on, instead the accepted
measurement is how many
liters per hundred kilometers.

If anyone is concerned
about his or her vehicles
fuel economy, they need
a better way to track their
vehicles fuel performance
than liters per hundred
kilometers.

Something easy to use, an
uncomplicated process to keep
watch on their vehicles fuel
consumption.

The MPG calculator is still
the better choice.
