## How to calculate Fuel Cost?

To calculate the fuel cost based on distance (miles), average fuel consumption (mpg), and price per 1 gallon, you can use the following formula:

Fuel cost = (distance / mpg) * price per gallon

Where:

• distance is the distance traveled in miles
• mpg is the average fuel consumption in miles per gallon
• price per gallon is the cost of 1 gallon of fuel in dollars
For example: let's say you want to drive a car that gets an average of 25 miles per gallon and you want to travel a distance of 200 miles. The price of fuel is \$3.50 per gallon. What would be the total fuel cost?
Fuel cost = (200 / 25) x 3.50 = 28.00 dollars

## How to use Fuel Cost Calculator?

To calculate the estimated fuel cost:

1. Enter the distance and its unit (e.g. 30 miles)
2. Enter the average fuel consumption for your vehicle (e.g. 20 mpg)
3. Enter the fuel price (e.g. \$3.50 per gallon)
4. Check your results: it should contain the total fuel price and fuel needed [e.g. 5.2 USD (1.5 gal)]

## Examples

Distance Avg. fuel consumption Fuel price Total fuel price Fuel needed
150 miles 25 mpg \$3.50 per gallon 21 USD 6 gallons
125 kilometers 8 l/100 km \$3 per litter 30 USD 10 liters
50 miles 18 mpg \$3.70 per gallon 10.3 USD 2.8 gallons
