## 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:

- Enter the distance and its unit (e.g. 30 miles)
- Enter the average fuel consumption for your vehicle (e.g. 20 mpg)
- Enter the fuel price (e.g. $3.50 per gallon)
- 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 |
