Calculating MPG in Trinidad

Postby Mini » January 29th, 2004, 12:53 pm

For unleaded petrol 95 RON (TT$3.00 per liter)

(distance travelled in km/ cost in TT$)*7.0654 = fuel consumption in MPG

For unleaded petrol 92 RON (TT$2.70 per liter)

(distance travelled in km/ cost in TT$)*6.3508 = fuel consumption in MPG

Umm.... I don't get it....

1 mile = 1.609 Km

1 Km. = 0.6215 Miles

At least that's what I thought...

miles per gallon!

some people don't know how to convert using the price os TT$3.00 per liter

you also have to convert liters to gallons

the one factor used above takes all this into consideration

no scene

for instance

this morning I put $85.00 in unleaded and zeroed the trip at 404.1 (since my last full up)

so it's (404.1/85)*7.0654 = 33.547 miles per gallon :mrgreen:


lemme see a Mitsu or a Nissan do 33 mpg after running for the week with A/C right thru nah!

You could also do this... if my math is correct:

(Km travelled/Litres of gas consumed) * 2.352 = MPG

yeah that works too... all I did was the multiply the factor in your equation by the cost of 1 liter of gas

Traffic jams ? Sorry buddy... I think that 25mpg has something to do with the lead weight stiched into your right shoe. :lol:

Ive been getting tied up with this because i think theres two different gallons in common use.

Checking this with a gas fillup log book i kept for a while, im getting all kinda wonderfully horrible figures, from 20mpg down to 15mpg, mostly slow town driving :cry:

there is the UK gallon and the US gallon... I used the US gallon in these calculations

1 liter = 0.2641721 gallons

1 liter = 0.2199692 gallons (UK)

I just did , from maraval to sando and back, heavy traffic in town, on a quarter tank which is roughly $40, I find thats pretty decent but my normal town driving is terrible mileage, so I guess if i was always on the highway id never complain.
Maybe I need a big nasty T4 that only spooling over 4000rpm so i could put in more time off-boost, :mrgreen:

Try 14 MPG with the GSR compared to 38+MPG on the other RWD.... and I thought the GLXi was bad.


Fellahs when checking MPG remember to take overall rolling diameter into consideration, because those of you with a rolling diameter that is larger than stock will actually be doing more mileage than the ODO shows, therefore your consumption will be better than you think.
